This week, it's the battle of the viral Internet phenoms...with the UK's latest bratty teenage sensation Lily Allen facing off against the godfathers of Blogger buzz, Clay Your Hands Say Yeah. It seems like just yesterday we were introduced to the scrappy young DIY kids of CYHSY, but they're all growns up now and looking kick some ass with their sophomore self-released record titled Some Loud Thunder. Lily, of course, is still in her freshman year of Music Hype 101, and went in the completely opposite direction by signing a deal right away with the bigs at Capitol/EMI. Who will win out?? Place your wages after the jump.
