Plus, I think King Nothing is better than any song on Reload. Although, honestly I don't remember either record too well.
I love the lyrics to King Nothing, but the music to it is pretty lame. Here's my ranking of the songs I listed as good:
1. Ain't My Bitch
2. 2 X 4
3. Low Man's Lyric
4. Devil's Dance
6. King Nothing
7. Carpe Diem Baby
7/4 Modest Mouse, Echo & the Bunnymen
8/11 Protest the Hero
8/27 Metallica, Mastodon
