2nd Song on DG Albums Ranked

Is it just me or does the second song on every Death Grips release just goes abnormally hard? Like they keep picking that spot to put the biggest bangers in their discography. I haven't listened to their deep early cuts or Fashion Week in depth yet but for their main discography I find this to be a consistent feature.
1Death Grips
The Powers That B - Part I: Niggas on the Moon


Billy Not Really is easily their peak in this regard in my opinion, though I still show love to The Fever and Guillotine for what they did with exposure to Death Grips.
2Death Grips
The Money Store


In hindsight this song sounds like Death Grips' own hype anthem for their foreseeable future, as if they saw it all coming and knew this would be the necessary diving board to land perfect Internet hype. I was a thirteen year old kid in Wisconsin when I bought this album and it was all because of their singles like this. I didn't even know how I was gonna hide the album past my mom but I knew that this was something to listen to.
3Death Grips
The Powers That B - Part II: Jenny Death


Proof that Death Grips could never really stop topping themselves in 2015 by releasing this single and music video. This one is high mostly for the video and imagery, slyly revealing that Death Grips have their own sense of humor in what would become their darkest album, lyrically.
4Death Grips
Bottomless Pit


Same kind of theory apples with Hot Head except this single came with it the peak of Death Grips intensity, truly pushing the barriers to what they could produce and even what MC Ride could physically say at once.
5Death Grips
Exmilitary


meme-tier hit. I saw a fat white dude walking around campus wearing a shirt that just said YUH and had a distorted photo of sorts and it still wrings in me the same feeling of nostalgia I had making friends over hearing this song.
6Death Grips
Government Plates


Seriously underrated album overall, but this track strikes me as a Death Grips single (even though all songs were released around the same time) is its representative nature of the album overall while retaining what fans might've liked. The first song was a banger, no doubt, but it didn't truly represent what listeners were in for. Anne Bonny thus continues the trend of the second song single.
7Death Grips
No Love Deep Web


Similar to above in that the songs seem underwhelming compared to their A-side brethren but really function as the window into the overall view of the house that is the album. The beats coming off of The Money Store's franting sliding and slickness is a lot of space in between single keyboard notes or erratic drumming rhythms.
8Death Grips
Year of the Snitch


Need to listen to this one more. I like this album a lot, still.
