    I give the edge to Black because it is the only song of the 3 to have been a commercially successful cover by another band (Staind).
    Haha. This is my least favorite tiebreak rationale I think I've heard yet on these polls. Sorry. To each their own, but I don't even acknowledge the existence of that cover, nor do I think it should have any bearing on how any of us feel about these songs. 
    I get it, but picking the best of these 3 songs is like being asked to choose your favorite child. So I had to use some type of tiebreaker in my mind. Like today, my favorite kid is the one who didn't wake me up screaming and crying!

    Black is also the easiest to learn on guitar, so that is another way for me to justify it if that makes you feel better.

    This, I like. Always seem to have a preference for stuff I enjoy playing more. Of these, that's RVM for me. Just so fun. 
    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.

    Refresh my memory, does that mean the runner up from the Ten poll is going to face off against the winner from Vs?
