the image of the bomb is used for the lowest rating you can give a song, as opposed to having no rating which means the song is yet unknown for it is new.
this was started back in the 50's radio dj's use to refere to songs that nobody liked as a bomb. some of them still use that term on the radio.
same things with movies if it does bad in the movie theaters it is said to be a bomb.
stand up comic's also use the term. if a joke does not get any laugh's then its a bomb.
so it only makes sense to keep it going for the same meaning in the ratings on the songs in the computer age.
