Now you know how I felt in 2000 and 2004. Anyway, don't let one result that you don't agree with dampen your participation. This is a democracy, God dammnit, and there is no room to complain if you don't participate. The poll is not stupid. Don't hate the game, hate the playas. Sweet Child only won by one vote, so if more people voted, who knows what the result would have been. And let's not kid ourselves, they are both great songs.
