Looks like this could be an Achtung Baby final. Anyone know what the last four songs left were last time?

In the semi-final of the 2010 ultimate song tournament, Streets beat The Fly by a large margin.

Also, it seems there were quite a few more voters back then.

Well, at our last TrueFans meeting (at the usual undisclosed location), we decreed by fiat that Streets's coolness had expired. You'll be feeling the impact of that, as well as of many of our other decrees, in the coming weeks.

I feel like The Fly's resurgence towards the end of the 360 Tour has helped garner it votes, kind of like how EBTTRT and Zooropa's popularity rose after their debuts on the tour

The Fly has always been popular. It's been a setlist staple since its inception and I don't think it needed a few appearances on 360 to bolster its popularity.

After all, Bad had the most votes for U22 and it barely even appeared on the 360 Tour, for example.
