    Fifth Harmony cs Vengaboys is not even a fair comparison. These songs are like... 20? years apart or something like that. Multiple styles and generations apart. At least pick something from the same year +/-1 FFS :D

    You didn't bring up the old battle between Evanescence and Nightwish, did you? Back in the days, you would either listen to Evanescence or Nightwish, never both. At least as a listener to gothic rock. Oh, the memories...

    Kinda upset that all the EU songs are either old or just didn't sound good. I mean Why not John Legend vs Duncan Laurance (All of you vs Arcade) Or All of you vs Hei Rakas by BEHM Would've been much harder. And Work from home vs Boom Boom Boom is clearly unfair. I mean ofc the 2016 song is going to win over the 1998 song. Why no Work from home vs Don't start now? Fifth Harmony vs Dua Lipa. There are waaay better match ups then this. I mean, I know it's all a game but this just looks like USA propaganda lol

    Fun Fact: Amy Lee never wanted that metal part in Bring Me To Life. The record label didn't think her version was profitable enough so they decided to add that male vocalist and the metal influences. Amy released the true version a few years ago i think, and it sounds like the anthem for a coven of powerful witches. Its really amazing, and her label are cowards for forcing her to change it into a meme song.

    I need to say this before I even watch it. Band say they have “made it” when they get songs to take off in the US and the money will roll in but we can’t forget the legends that the EU has given us like Queen, The Who, or even places like Canada with singers like The Weeknd or Justin Bieber. I’m not sure who is the best and I’m sure you have “made it” when you get a song to take off in the US but I feel music can’t really be tied to a country because I feel music these days are written by people and influences. For example it’s hard to find a song written by just one person but I feel Billie And Finneas are great song writers and producers but people don’t know this is not normal. Lots of hands stir that pot we call a song to what it becomes. I do feel sound wise the US has an advantage being we are all different with many nationalities. Lots of looks, appearances, and sounds. IDK maybe I’m just biased.

    Summer 2019 (May/June), my sister (16) threw a party to celebrate finishing high school with a load of her friends. I was 12 and invited my friend Josh over and we rarely went downstairs to the garden bc there were just 10-15 drunk 15/16 year olds dancing to Boom Boom Boom. We just staying the the living room and kitchen, helping my mum cook and in my room playing the Sims 4 and playing with my guinea pigs. That party is what I associate that song with now. Funny story from that day. Josh told his mum to pick him up at 9pm bc it was still light and the party wasn’t supposed to start until 6, even though they were all late from the rugby match they went to first and it ended up starting at 7. We had a paddling pool so it was a pool party which meant it was outside and we have this terrible neighbour, Julie, who at 9PM RANG THE POLICE AND MADE A NOISE COMPLAINT. We later found out 3 houses down our way also reported noise and all of them were 22/23 year olds. Bearing in mind that you are allowed to make noise until 11pm. So the police came at 9pm and all of these 15/16 year old hid in my bed room, three of them with cups of tea my mum made, and eventually moored into my mums room so they could see what was going on (our house is a town house and both rooms are on the top floor but mine is at the back and my mums is at the front). Josh then decided that it was a good idea to text his mum “Don’t pick me up yet, the police are here” His mum then told her Aunt, who was the mum of one of the boys at the party and she texted him. After the police left my sister came up to Josh and made sure he told his mum that we aren’t bad people and it was just a little noise complaint. He has never been to my house again except the other day when my form tutor accidentally gave me his school photo and him and his mum came and picked it up from our doorstep (we live on the same estate and so does Josh’s mum’s Aunt (their houses face each other) It was all rather chaotic but that is what that song reminds me of. P.S one of my sister (then) friends, pulled down her bikini bottoms and peed in the paddling pool bc she couldn’t be bothered walking 20 steps to the closest bathroom. I’m scarred
