Supernatural - Favorite Song - 2A - Polls

Welcome to round 2 of the favorite song poll. Just a reminder this is just what it says it is - favorite song. It has nothing to do with how that song was used in Supernatural. The song-to-scene poll will come up next and that's when it counts how it was used. Speaking of song-to-scene, I have decided to expand the contest from 16 entries to 32. That means we need help figuring out what those other songs will be. Songs currently in the contest include: Renegade, Wanted Dead or Alive, O Death, Back in Black, Don't Fear the Reaper, A Well-Respected Man, Rock of Ages, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Bad Moon Rising, Beautiful Loser, Eye of the Tiger, Heat of the Moment, Smoke on the Water, Simple Man, What a Wonderful World, and Silent Lucidity.

My plan is to put all other nominated songs plus any new songs into polls and determine the rest of the contestants that way. I'm including the nomination form below so feel free to add songs you think should be in. Just make sure you put what episode you are nominating the song for since some songs have been used more than once. If it doesn't have an episode, it won't be counted. Remember also the idea of song-to-scene is how well the song matches what was going on in the scene, both mood and lyrics, which knocks out Carry on Wayward Son since it has only been played in the previouslies. In my opinion it should knock out Eye of the Tiger too since the reason people like it is because of the outtake which is not a part of the plot. For it to be a good song-to-scene nomination, the song should not be easily replaceable with other songs. Nominations will close on Tuesday.

Now that future business is taken care of, let's look at the songs remaining in round 2. Things were far closer in the last set. The winning songs were Back in Black (90% - this one was obviously not close), All Out of Love (52% - winning by a mere 6 votes), Bad Company (56%), and O Death (68%). They join Carry On Wayward Son, Highway to Hell, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Rock of Ages, Eye of the Tiger, Bad Moon Rising, Hell's Bells, Wanted Dead or Alive, Renegade, You Shook Me All Night Long, Heat of the Moment, and Don't Fear the Reaper in round 2. Things should start getting a little harder to vote now unless like me you only like about half the songs. Then it's easier.
