Battle of the Summer Jams: OneRepublic vs. Maroon 5

By Christopher Rosa 

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).

We’re turning it up a notch for this week’s battle, pitting one up-tempo pop/rock stomper against another: In one corner it’s OneRepublic’s clap-ya-hands smash “Love Runs Out” and in the other it’s Maroon 5’s crazy addictive “Maps.” Both are established bands just trying to make their new tunes the song of the summer. But only one can join our exclusive group of winners (including Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry and Iggy Azalea).

So who’s it going to be?  It’s time to vote!

“Love Runs Out,” OneRepublic

“Maps,” Maroon 5

Want to earn your fave some bragging rights? Vote as many times as you want between now and next Thursday at noon.

And don’t fret if your pick doesn’t come out on top. The losers will have another chance to shine in the redemption round, where we’ll bring them all together for one more vote. But for now, turn up the radio!
