    I don't listen to either song, but rather than put "neither," I'll choose The Catalyst because it is a much better song, even if I don't like it much.

    Burn it down, way better song. Better vocals, better instrumentals, the electronics is used better here and i just love almost everything about BID.

    My opinion:
    One Step Closer> Burn it Down> Somewhere I Belong> What I've Done> The Catalyst

    I find them more enjoyable, and the electronic insrumentals infused with the normal ones sound better to me than the instrumentals of the catalyst

    The Catalyst by far. It has better lyrics, a non-generic structure, awesome build-up, and let's not forget that eargasmic outro.

    Even though I'm ADDICTED to Burn It Down at the moment, I am fully conscious that The Catalyst is the far better song. The insane structure, the apocalyptic lyrics, the meaning behind the song and it's importance within the story of A Thousand Suns. Not to mention the musical bliss that is the final piano half.

    The ambition the band worked for in The Catalyst simply radiates from the song. Whereas Burn It Down feels comfortable (although fucking awesomely comfortable).

    Not. Even. A. Contest. The Catalyst. The Catalyst. The Catalyst.

    Burn it Down, for what it's worth, is still a fun jam to listen to.

    "The Catalyst" has a more original structure, better lyrics, and awesomeness splashed all over it. "The Catalyst" is, according to NY Post, "an electronic rave [that] transforms into a power ballad." What can't be more original than that?

    BID sounds like an oversynthed Poker Face.
