This is a summary of the worst mixtape competition, 2k5, WFUDS style. Three competitors…three mixtapes…five songs apiece…karaoke at stake. Let’s see what happened!
1) OMC – How Bizarre
2) Spice Girls – Spice Up Your Life
3) System of a Down – BYOB
4) Jewel – Intuition

This is tough but I have some good reasoning for this decision. The first place winner goes to….Garrett! Garrett’s list was very solid, and speaking in holistic terms, his list was the worst all around. Reaching into country and the more random picks helped but he didn’t have any weak picks. In second place comes…Kevin! Kevin’s list was really nice. I would not have put How Bizarre or Intuition on the list but the Spice Girls and Lee Greenwood picks make it a nice list.
Given these reasons, it shall be determined that
