Welcome to the big show. For every match-up, we’ll load the video and argue for each song and then link you to the vote. Let’s get into it:

#4 seed “Nine in the Afternoon” by Panic at the Disco looks to topple powerhouse “American Boy” by Estelle featuring Kanye

~Z.T.~ Andy likes to respond to ridiculous questions with “Is that a real question?” Is this? This song was beyond massive. I’m not a great whistler. I mean, tolerable at best. I’ve whistled “American Boy” and have people know what it is. Then they sing along. It’s that level of catchy. That hook could catch Jaws. You wouldn’t even need bait. Even Kanye’s verses are catchy. I’m defending Kanye. It’s that good. See you in the finals, “American Boy.”

-A.S. I’m taking the upset in this one, no doubt. I can’t deny that “American Boy” is catchy. I just think that “Nine in the Afternoon” is much more so. I think it has transcended genres, and moved its way into all different walks of life. They even have it as a song on NHL ’09. My friend Sanderman had no idea who Panic at the Disco was when I asked him if he had heard their new CD, but knew this song from the opening riff when I played it for him. He even sang. If any of you have ever heard that, you know how special that is. Besides, Zack didn’t even tell you that Estelle opened for the Gym Class Heroes and the Roots when we saw them, but he chose to eat Mexican food instead of hearing her do “American Boy.” How catchy can he really think it is?

    To be fair, I didn’t realize that was Estelle until I came in as it was ending. A boy needs dinner, no? I’d had a bunch of sandwiches right before…wait…that doesn’t work…
