Can I root for both teams to lose the Superbowl? Cancel it because of an Eboli scare? Talk about two teams with such loathsome fan bases, it's just not fair to a Viking fan, even a tepid one like me. I'm going to drown myself in a random top 10:

1. Gypsy Cowboy -- New Riders of the Purple Sage
2. Until You Came Along -- Golden Smog
3. Conversation -- Gary Numan
4. Public Pervert -- Interpol
5. The Tumblers -- Guided By Voices
6. We'll Never Turn Back -- New Freedom Singers
7. Big Boring Wedding -- Guided By Voices
8. Hey Joe -- Hypstrz
9. I Still Can't Believe You're Gone -- Kelly Hogan & the Pine Valley Cosmonauts
10. I Can Be Killed -- Big Black

Nice little mix, Hey Joe is the only song on my i-pod that is sung by four different artists. What's your top 10.
