    So, around next Tuesday, Burn It Down will have turned 1 year old.

    What did you think of the song then, and what do you think of it now?

    I'm in the same place I was last year. It's a cool song but feels like its kind of cheap and plasticy.

    I listened to it A LOT when it came out, and I thought it was a good song, and I still do. But I just feel like it's not as good as it could have been, and everytime I hear it after almost any other song it sounds kind of empty, maybe that's just me... But it's still a good song!

    A mediocre song is still a mediocre song a year later.

    No, it really isn't. I'll let you guys know after 5 years (2017) how it still holds up.

    It was a terrible song back then and it still is now. I expected a lot better from LP.

    I still like it. I was my favourite LP song (of course it was) and I still like it for the same reasons:
    -Energetic
    -Fucking catchy and cool vocal melodies
    -Pop-ish
    -OMFG THAT SYNTH IN THA RAPZ PARTZ
    -The lyrics is about Mass Effect :D
    -It's a mash-up between New Divide, Numb, The Catalyst and Blackbirds

    I didn't think much of it when it first came out, but it grew on me like The Catalyst did.

    It would have aged better for me if there was no rap part and just the instrumentation. Everything else is good. It's nice to listen to here and there.

    It's not their best song for me, but it unusually still has the most number of plays out of any song in my iTunes.

    The best song performed live for me lately, but something they did in five minutes, a less-than-mediocre song.

    The song is an excellent ringtone!

    But seriously, I've always loved the song. Chester does a phenomenal job paired with some awesome synths and instrumental work. I may have enjoyed it much more when it first came out, but I still love the song.
