After MTV's roundtable of experts chose Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" and Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" as the top two Best Songs of 2011, music fans made their opinions heard, sharing their picks or voicing support for the chart-topping ladies and the rest of the top 10.
Adele received plenty of backup for her Song of the Year win, including from Facebook user Cavisha Brown: "Guys, Adele killed 2011 with 'Rolling in the Deep' and 'Someone Like You.' Adele for the win!" Another Facebook fan, Alvaro Maguiña, wrote, " 'Rolling in the Deep,' 'cause Adele's a boss."
Even the haters couldn't deny the big-voiced singer's 2011 takeover, as Bradley Goodwin confessed, "Even though I don't like her, it's obviously Adele."
"Super Bass" also got support from Minaj's Barbz and Kenz, who appeared on the fence about the MC's face-off against Adele. "What people don't understand is that Nicki is a rapper," Grant Markwell wrote on Facebook. "She didn't get her rise to fame from singing. Adele did, but on the other hand both are styles of music that are looked up to by millions. I think Nicki's rap style is very dominant, and that 'Super Bass' was a breakthrough for female rap. So I pick her..."
Fans of Bruno Mars weren't too happy that hits like "The Lazy Song" and "It Will Rain" were missing from the action. Twitter user @FloureandLeafe wrote, "No @BrunoMars song? Really? I don't agree 'cause bruno is a wonderful artist and he deserves to be in your list."
While Britney Spears' "Till the World Ends" made Bigger Than the Sound's Top 25 Songs of 2011, her hit singles were nowhere to be found on MTV's Best of 2011 list. Team B made sure to voice their thoughts.
"When it comes to awards and 'best of' charts, they ignore her," MTV.com user Alessandro ranted. "Even those who say she's great ... in the end act as if they'd never even said a word."
"You forgot Britt Britt, c'mon!" Joe added.
While Rihanna ruled Facebook in 2011, the pop titan landed at #3 on the list with "We Found Love." Her Navy was none too pleased that the dance anthem did not take home the title. "WTF, 'We Found Love' deserved to be number 1," @helenivyork tweeted.
Among the other tunes fans felt should have been part of the year-end list were Beyoncé's "Countdown," Eminem's "Lighters" and Jennifer Lopez's "On the Floor."
