A because Sonic Youth gets my vote but I have to ask what kind of yimyam puts a Mogwai tune on their list....

Mixed bags both, but A hits closer to home...

I've really been enjoying the First Aid Kit track this month and there's some good choices elsewhere but, overall, B is the most enjoyable list.

A is just not for me. B is flawed but has the incomparable No GDM by Gina X, One of the ten greatest singles of the eighties. Oh yes.

Ill go for B, as there's lots to like there ultimately. In this contest, I'm looking for fun rather than worthiness.

Like both of these, but I'll give a slight edge to A.

A. That First Aid Kit-song is really bad though. Can't understand the fuss about that album at all.

I have this as A - 38, B - 37, but that's just too close to call. Can someone else help with the recount? Thanks.
