Corduroy is undeniably one of the band's absolute best songs. They play it at nearly every show, it's on the greatest hits album, etc. It's already won March Madness, too. RM has fully acknowledged its greatness.

Insignificance is also fantastic and from one of PJ's finest but also most underrated albums. It has not won here previously. I cast my vote for Insignificance because of my love for that song and more generally for Binaural. Both the song and album are vastly underrated, by the band and by the mainstream fans. This is a chance to put the spotlight on the greatness that is Binaural. In the best possible scenario, the band may begin to rethink their near-total shunning of this spectacular album. Team Binaural.

Yes


YES

I voted for Corduroy, because I'm not insane, but I fully support there being a different winner this year, even if that winner is not in my top 20.

I really don't care for Binaural, and Vitalogy is often my favorite album. So my vote pained me, but I think Insignificance has a slight edge over Corduroy.

So glad Insignificance topped Immortality.

This is a strong final representing the Pearl Jam of the past at their best, vs. the "newer" MC era PJ at their best.

I'm going with Insignificance all the way. Corduroy has had it's day. Everyone knows it's a great song, it's now Insignificance's turn to be king.

I really don't see why someone would vote for a song if they don't think it's the best in a matchup. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of this whole thing? So what if the same song wins every year?

I do prefer "Insignificance", but both songs are worthy finalists

I might understand that if it was Corduroy every year for 4 years, but it's one of several former champions, and Black has already set a precedent of winning twice.

Vote your heart, folks!

I was just saying I'm fine with Insignificance winning because it's something different - it's just nice to see a bit of variety at the top. I voted for Corduroy, which I think is easily the better song.

If Corduroy was up against one of those songs that everybody overrates (I Got Shit), I'd be far less cool about it losing.
