A worthy winner, but it would have been nice if Real Rock got a few votes. My second choice.

Answer deserved a vote too; that's one I didn't immediately recognize based on the name, which was pretty dumb in retrospect, given how much I love Lone Ranger's titular version:

On the other hand, the selection criteria are fairly opaque to me. I basically disqualified Real Rock because it seemed like the list was trying to showcase quintessentially dancehall riddims, and RR is such a classic reggae riddim it didn't make sense to me to include it and not Satta Massagana, Drum Story, etc. But Bam Bam, Answer, and Stalag all precede the dancehall era too so idk...
