I’m voting for “So Cold” because the mix of “Downfall” hurts my ears.

What do you call the way he sings?

It's 'yarling', isn't it? A very popular vocal affectation among these groups.

I'm not sure where I've heard "Downfall" before. I want to say it was on a Spin magazine sampler that I had from like 2001, but it might just be familiar from radio play. Anyway, it's pretty blah, and I definitely get the pop punk comparison that somebody made.

"So Cold" really isn't any better, but I think the one thing that gives it an edge over its opponent is the more proficient musicianship. They do a bit of shredding here and there that gives them a pretty arbitrary victory.

Don't know either song, so I'm voting for the video with the weirdest stuff (that I saw in the 15 seconds I watched of each), and it was the use of the wind machine in the second one.

These are both very terrible. I voted Downfall.

Interesting subversion of the hot-girl-looking-at-stoic-lead-singer trope at the 1:00 mark
