If Panda was a #1 Hit. This deserves it too. They both good but Tiimmy Turner is better - AlphaQ

6 Blackstar - David Bowie
7 Dystopia - Megadeth

I can't be the only one who loathes this song. 0/5. This is worse than Closer so I would have cried my ass out. - AlphaQ

Nope, Jared Leto Is Talentless, And Suicide Squad Has No Reason To Be Liked - VideoGamefan5
