Run Devil Run is the best song they've done. Echo and Star Star Star are good songs too that aren't in the poll.
I like quite a few of the songs listed here but its hard to pick a favorite per-se. I chose the english song from Tay chan. Its been a while since I listened to her english songs. Me gusta.

On January 1, 2012 a video teaser for MBLAQ's fourth extended play album was released, including their secondary single, “낙서 (Scribble)”. Strangely however the captions on screen were not of the song's lyrics. In the teaser video, Lee Joon is wrestling with Thunder for a woman, and ultimately points his gun to kill. The video was perceived to be very different from previous MBLAQ videos, as this was the first time the group had produced a full-story music video that incorporated acting and action sequences. The captions were later revealed, in the second music video teaser, to be for their lead single "전쟁이야 (This is War)"
