Kaleidoscope has ruined KOTW. I'm ending it early. It's embarrassing.

Don't particularly like either of these, but after re-listening just now I will take Teenage Satellites over that Tom Delonge solo disco party.

Currently reminiscing about all the arguments and harassing I took because I vocally liked This Is Home when it came out.

I would've backed you up for sure! I think it's an awesome song, especially the kinda hated 80s new wave-y chorus. Dumb ass verse lyrics but that doesn't exactly contrast with Teenage Satellites haha. I like the synths too. Honestly I feel like it sounds like a super promising demo that could've become great with some more work (like a lot of Neighborhoods I guess)

Home would have lost against some other songs from Cali (e.g. BTD, Sober), but not against Teenage Satellites. That song is one of the worst off Cali.

I don't even remember what Teenage Satellites sounds like but I'm voting for it. This Is Home makes me want to piss on Tom's stupid face.

wow ive always thought in the end that this is home is the worst blink song. So written just to appease people and false.

both songs are actually really similar. neither is particularly great, but i don't hate either of them.

i like the cure-esque synths on this is home (as i said not long ago, i'm a sucker for any blink songs with synths), but the "i-i-i" chorus is a little annoying. and the lyrics of the song are so retrograde. "we fuckin fight like vagabonds, we dance like fuckin animals, that girl will try to make you hard." another example of tom thinking this is what blink is and all it will ever be, adolescent anthems. it's just kinda dumb. same with teenage satellites, which is indistinguishable from anything else on the album... just another ultra-catchy WE'RE TEENAGERS AND THE WORLD'S AGAINST US piece. both songs really are just that though, but this is home has better lyrics. and i'll admit, i've always sorta been fond of the little piano notes after "then you kissed me like a storm at sea."

since this is home has synth and sorta sounds like they're trying to do something different, i'll go with it

There hasn't been a poll this close since the BotBM poll where I lost to Scott at the last second thanks to 2point5! This is intense and scary. I am hyperventilating. Who's gonna win this?!
