    RaFRaG is so worthy of mention for its perfect first half, but going strictly by the rules, three songs not counting intros, gotta go with Smash. That's about as good as it gets for me.

    Of all the albums with the three songs you listed I actually think RaFRaG has the best three songs.

    For each of the rest of them I'll admit I usually don't listen to one. Like, it would've been Ixnay but I don't actively listen to Me and My Old Lady a lot

    or hit that for example.

    Smash is probably a close second for me.

    When we're ready to sing, we step up to the microphone, and it comes out something like this.

    Really? I'm the only one?

    Tough one but after all I voted for Ixnay, because:


    Disclaimer
    The Meaning of live 11/10 (better opener than all the 3 first rafrag songs together)
    Mota 9,8/10
    Me and My old Lady 8/10

    I'm with Krojd. Though I don't really like Me & My Old Lady, Meaning of Life + Mota is terrific. Plus, Disclaimer is pretty cool as well.

    My other choices could be the Self Titled (cause of Elders and Out on Patrol) and Smash.

    Only one fucking choice? ONE?

    Jennifer Lost the War
    Session
    Nitro
    Half-Truism

    Also, Have You Ever, The Noose and Come Out Swinging are not bad either.

    I now realize that my choice was nostalgia-fueled madness. Co1 was my first album.


    I'd like to unofficially change my choice to Ignition.

    Neocon is a real song! Why must a song be at a certain length to be considered a song? Are you saying that Minor Threat never made any "real" songs?

    It's hard to me to choose between Splinter and Ignition. Neocon + The Noose are such great songs, but Session is also a great opening.

    Okay, my poll/thread sucks. Someone else make a better one and we'll let this one fade away until it's a distant memory.

    EDIT: I'm an idiot and was wrong to design this thread the way I did. That's why I haven't bothered to defend myself. I have no defense.

    1st Americana
    2nd Smash
    3rd Splinter

    But, Smash is very close if not better. Not really into Neocon, but The Noose is great. Ixnay is interesting too.
