    Something tells me this line will be brought up at some point.

    Just a hunch I have.

    Sorry to disappoint you!

    I DO love that line, yet, it's only one line in the song...

    I don't mind it at all either but it will be brought up as THE shittiest Sam lyric by the usual suspect(s).

    I wasn't sure if ADKoT was meant to be included in the Dave era, although I'm not sure why it wouldn't be?
    That's why I chose YAYB. Loved it from the very first time I heard it on album release day

    Great picks for both main eras! And, hard to pick only 5 from both main eras!

    Yep, that covers it
