Championship Round
Aye Davanita, Stupid Mop, Pry To, and Bugs eliminated in Round 1.
Satan's Bed, Whipping and Spin The Black Circle eliminated in Round 2.
Tremor Christ, Last Exit, Not For You and Better Man eliminated in Round 3.
Nothingman eliminated in Round 4.

Again, you are going to pick the song that you think is the "Weakest Link" from the remaining list after a couple days I remove the song with the most votes.

Who will be the Vitalogy Champion?

The poll will close on Tuesday (3/21) at 2:45pm cst.

    Tough decision but not that tough.
    Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both ideas are overwhelming.

    Good fight. Good night. We were all winners here.
    There are two types of people in the world - those who love Pearl Jam, and those who don't know that they love Pearl Jam.

    Both songs are incredible,
    but I picked Immortality as the weakest link just because I will never get tired of hearing Corduroy at a show...
    and I'm not sure I can say the same thing about Immortality.

    Feels like whichever way this goes we will be making the right call. Two powerhouse songs.

    Immortality at Wrigley 2 was a big highlight for me, but Corduroy is my favorite song. So, this was ultimately pretty easy for me.

    So far I've been able to choose which song is the weakest of the remaining by considering only studio versions against each other. This is too tough. I listen to them back to back and love them both. They affect me in completely different but equally awesome ways. I am now turning to live versions. I'm currently comparing Greenville Corduroy against Fenway 2 Immortality.

    I may be over-thinking this but with everything else there is to think about this is a welcome relief.

    I clicked the wrong box, but I'm not that upset, Corduroy rocks.
    I think Immortality is a top 5 song and Corduroy is more a top 10 song.

    That's a damn tight list, I don't think I could squeeze Corduroy in top 5, but that's not saying much because top 10 is all top 5 worthy.
    I am referring to and voting based on best, not favorite.

    I have a "Top 7" that is impenetrable (For those who might care: Alive, Release, Go, Animal, RVM, Corduroy, and Immortality). Ranking these seven songs is extremely difficult - even impossible.

    Very solid, I'd swap Black in for Go and maybe Betterman or In Hiding for Corduroy, but otherwise I'm on board.

    I don't understand how Black didn't win the Ten poll...I understand we have all heard it to death and Release has more mystique for the fan base, but it isn't better than Black.
    Black is one of the all-time greatest songs ever and he hasn't outdone those lyrics in 25 years of excellent lyricism.

    .
    If I just stick with Ten, Vs, and Vitalogy songs, Black, Daughter, and Better Man definitely round out my top 10. However, I Got Id and/or a song or two from either No Code or Yield might deserve to be there.
