Can't say I'm surprised that was my lowest ranked song--not that I don't really like it, but I seriously doubt there are any other Chipmunk fans around these parts.

Right around the time you asked for nominations, I was thinking about how much I wanted people to give me songs they liked even if they knew I probably wouldn't like them (in the interest of trying to expand my musical horizons)... and realized I couldn't honestly ask that of other people if I were never going to be willing to offer up my personal favorites as sacrifices. For better or worse, you were the first person to open nominations to everything after I resolved to nominate a Chipettes song somewhere, so you rather got one by default.

For what it's worth, I went with this one because their voices weren't nearly as high-pitched as usual. It's rather tame compared to other offerings, so I thought it'd have the best odds of not getting an absolute zero out of the entire discography... all things considered, I'm
pleased with the result and that you were willing to listen to it at all.

For what it's worth, I unironically like that one Chipmunks Christmas song that comes on every year

#135 The Devil Wears Prada - Chemical
Rating: 2.8/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @Bane_Of_Despair (5/5)

This is the sort of mid-'00s Emo music that I never really quite got into. A number of my friends were into this sort of thing, so I have a bit of a nostalgia factor going on for a few of the songs in the genre, but this one doesn't really resonate with me. I like the meaning behind the lyrics in this, about how it's about battling against depression, but on that front I feel like there's a lot of other music out there that feels a lot more deep and powerful than this. Towards the end this just sounds like radio rock.

I'm nervous but also excited at the same time...

Can't hug every cat :(

Well, it's more of a guilty pleasure song to me haha but I do rather enjoy the beat and the stupid lyrics.

Yep, figured that was the nomination that was the riskiest. Was either gonna do really well or completely miss. I very much disagree with it sounding like radio rock, radio rock is way more bland than that!

#134 DaymanOurSavior - Extreme Meme Music Mega Mashup
Rating: 3/10
Have I heard this before?: No (although I've heard a good number of the separate components of this)
Nominator: @GavsEvans123 (5/5)

Continuing the trend of meme songs placing poorly, this brings us to our next song. There are parts of this that are terrible enough to land this song in dead last place, and a lot of these so-called “meme” songs in this I've not actually heard before. Kids these days with their newfangled internet phenomena, I tell ya. But, there are a few points in this that I felt were really cleverly done like segment in the middle with JonTron, or the part where it transitions into Snow Halation that I was really not expecting. This averages out into something I don't really like, but I appreciate its high points. If this were just the second half, I'd probably give this a much better ranking.

Back to radio rock with this one. This one gets a few more points since it kinda reminds me of a diet Linkin Park, which is a band I was never crazy for as a kid, but in the last 3 years or so actually grew an appreciation for and started getting into their stuff. I'd probably just listen to Linkin Park if I wanted to hear something that sounded like this, but if it came on the radio, I wouldn't feel immediately inclined to change the station or anything. This definitely has that distinct early/mid '00s sound, like something you'd hear from an early PS2 racing game.

I get the appeal behind this one, but the humor factor wears off pretty quickly. This reminds me a whole lot of Adult Swim-style humor in its lyrical content and dry delivery. That's not really a bad thing, or rather it wouldn't be a bad thing, but at this point I've gotten kind of sick of it. “Funny” songs have always been kind of hit-or-miss for me, leaning more towards miss in general. The whole ironic indie folk sound isn't helping it much either.
