It’s Friday, and you know what that means? Another rock-tastic round of Battle of the Summer Jamswhere two hit songs duel it out to see which one you, frankly, jam out to the most. Last week’s round saw Nico & Vinz’s silky-smooth “Am I Wrong” crush Magic!’s “Rude” with a 70-30 split. We guess no one’s finding anything wrong with their hit (alright, no more corny jokes).

But music’s most notorious tool isn’t always used for evil.
