Best Rock Band Face Offs
The Top Ten
Easy. Metallica! - Userguy44
ah yes, the rivalry of metallica and megadeth. well without dave, kirk woulnt of got started, and kirk usauly only makes solos to the songs written by ulrich or hetfield, but the only riff he did write, was metallicas best riff. howether, mustaine was, is, and always will be better than kirk or hetfield. his music is genuinly better, but his best albums were with marty friedman, and he's gone now. really in the end, this rivalry is a stupid revenge on metallica due to mustaines booting from the band... but megadeth are better! - lezakattack
Hell yeah.. Both bands have got history..!
Both are awesome.. But anyway Metallica is better..
Both have kinda similar song too..!
This rivalary is a headache to a metallica or megadeth fan. I like them both but I like metallica better. I like kirks solos better but I think dave is a better guitarist. dave's solos just need to sound cleaner.V 8 Comments
Guns n Roses. - Userguy44
Guns N' Roses for a long shot I just hate grunge but kurt and dave were a bad ass
Though close, I feel that The Nirvana Unplugged album is what really sets Nirvana on top of the rock genre. In the same vein of The Beatles, with Nirvana you see an evolution. Nirvana began as mostly screaming nonsense with the only real point to make good music, as all the bandmembers have said. By In Utero, and their final performances, Nirvana's music became an art, with stunning music and deep lyrics. Guns n Roses has a great range, but their music doensn't go farther than that really, it just doesn't have as much of an emotion impact, especially if you watch the unplugged performance from Nirvana.
GUNS N' ROSES BEATS NIRVANA ALL THE WAY! Nirvana is SO overrated. People tried to see some kind of deep meaning in Cobain's lyrics that just wasn't there. Even though they broke up, GNR is always number one in my book!V 23 Comments
QUEEN... The Ultimate Band of All Time!
QUEEN - Misfire
QUEEN... no contest!V 20 Comments
This a truly hard question for me. I am a MASSIVE fan of both amazing bands. Painkiller, The Number Of The Beast, Screaming for vengeance, Piece Of Mind and Firepower are the albums that I can not name a single song on them that isn't classic Priest/Maiden.
They both are equal on a lot of things; riffs, vocals, guitar work and sound production. But, after much debate, I have concluded on Maiden. I will always still love Priest though.
I go with Maiden. Although I like Judas Priest too. - Userguy44
COME ON, HOW is this not on here already? - UFasten8Me
Real Madrid vs SevillaV 4 Comments
THE BEATLES THE BEATLES THE BEATLES
Sorry, Rolling Stones, even though I like you guys and that I'm listening to a song of yours right now, I have to go for The Beatles. - Misfire
THE STONES! The Beatles have been done to death on this website. They've been overrated to the max and beyond.
Stones. - Userguy44
The Stones - more rock and less pop. - Metal_TreasureV 7 Comments
Black Sabbath by far!
Deep Purple! - Userguy44
Deep Purple - better musicianship, better live.
Black Sabbath - SoldierOfFortuneV 2 Comments
Deep Purple duh. - Userguy44
Deep Purple was most talented rock band ever (LORD, GILLAN, BLACKMORE, PAICE, Glover(smoke on the water)):PPP
Deep Purple wins but I will always love AC/DC, too. - Metal_Treasure
Deep Purple - zxm
Queen even though I like both. - Misfire
Queen, but Aerosmith is good too. - Userguy44
Queen! - DaringXx
Is this is joke? They're both great. Queen in terms of singles and Aerosmith in terms of albums? I guess?V 13 Comments
Van Halen. - Userguy44
my name says who will win
Van Halen. No questions.
Green Day! No hate on Nickelback though. - Misfire
Green Day. - Userguy44
Green Day wins because people like them - UsernameHere
Green Day by a MileV 5 Comments
Dio! - Userguy44
Dios a better singer but sabbath was better with ozzy
System of a Down. I can’t stand Slipknot. - Userguy44
System of a Down wins every battle! - moose4life19
System of a Down's songs have to be some of the most unique sounds I've ever heard
Slipknot is the best. Stay sic fellow maggots!V 5 Comments
Linkin Park by far! - Userguy44
Linkin Park wins always every battle.
Avenged Sevenfold wins, they have a big variety and all sounds really good
Linkin Park, avenged made one actually good album. Both overrated though.V 6 Comments
The Beatles. Sowwy... Lol - Misfire
Pink Floyd. - Userguy44
Pink Floyd is the best of all times...
Iron Maiden. - Userguy44
I like Black Sabbath more, but Maiden is up there - SoldierOfFortune
You think Dio with Black Sabbath? Mabye in heaven in hell. But on Mob Rules what happend to his voice?! With Ozzy it was better... But Iron Maiden beats Black Sabbath. Iron Maiden never do bad. Live there still great 2016! Especially compared to Guns N' Roses. Axel rose drink and smoked out his voice. Plus he wont even let fans were a slash t shirt to his live concerts even though slash is there... he also shows up late most of the time. Not even loyal to his fans... bit back on track, Iron Maiden is the best!
Sabbath. They invented metalV 2 Comments
Great Bands. These bands produced amazing songs such as Breath, Give Me A Sign, and I Will Not Bow by Breaking Benjamin. Break, Never To Late, and I Hate Everything About You by Three Days Grace. The winner is... Breaking Benjamin
I would've chose Three Days Grace if Adam stayed. I have nothing against Matt, in fact, I actually think he's doing great with the band, but the only vocalist that can even come close to Ben Burnley in my opinion is Adam Gontier.
Iron Maiden. Always. m/
IRON MAIDEN easily. OZZY IS HIGHLY OVERRATED.
That's hard... But IRON MAIDEN
Iron Maiden. I don’t like Ozzy’s voice. - Userguy44V 1 Comment
QUEEN - Misfire
This is the hardest question ever! I go with 50/50. Both bands are legendary! - Userguy44
TOO HARD TO CHOSE!
Alice In Chains! - Userguy44
Sure, Nirvana was more influential, but Alice in Chains is one of the most amazing bands of all time. Nirvana did pretty basic stuff, where as Alice in Chains was much more complicated and had more variety. So, Alice In Chains
I'm going to pick Alice in Chains, because while Nirvana revolutionized grunge rock, Alice in Chains perfected it.
Oh This Is Tough Gonna With Nirvana But AIC Is Right Behind Them. - FettiMCV 1 Comment
Aerosmith! - Misfire
Aerosmith. - Userguy44
Boston I’d say. Lol. Love da joke - DaringXx
Whoever added this one is a genius. The sense of humor made my day - sounds like a baseball match but there are such bands! - Metal_Treasure
Too hard to decide. Both are great bands
boston - zxm
Led Zeppelin would cause Ann and Nancy Wilson to die of a heart attack. Led Zeppelin are in the RnR Hall of Fame and are still selling out concerts everywhere plus Stairway to Heaven still ranks as the greatest rock song ever. Heart doesn't have any songs that comes close.
This is like the Beatles vs Justin Bieber
Metallica. - Userguy44
Metallica is KING and BEAST! Better than Guns N' Roses!
I would have to go with Metallica on this one..
Guns n roses are the best rock band ever no one can beat guns n roses plus guns n roses have slash NO ONE beat slash that's the way it isV 2 Comments
Led Zeppelin all the way!
Deep Purple wins! - Userguy44
Deep Purple. Most talented musician. a lot of great songs.
NIN. Trent had more passion, and they just amazing
Metallica. - Userguy44
Metallica, they're just that good
Red Hot Chili Peppers. - Userguy44
Peppers win easily. Nirvana doesn't have enough music or diversity to win. I like both but the pepper bring way more to the table.
Red hot was bad for their first couple of albums, then got dope. Nirvana was always good. I say nirvana, but who knows who woulda really been better.V 1 Comment
Winner is Avenged Sevenfold
I find it really funny how my two favorite bands are on here, head to head.
They're tied, dammit. - thunder850
Both of these bands are pretty terrible.
AvengedV 1 Comment
Dream Theater. - zxm
Pearl Jam. Nirvana is so overrated! - Userguy44
personally I like NIRVANA better but o well -
Pearl Jam for me
PJ for life! - Songsta41
The Who! - Userguy44
Their music is incredibly similar. Moon vs Bonham, Roger vs Robert. That'd be amazing. - shallowcal
This is hard. I go with Nirvana. - Userguy44
That's not really fair because there both connected and if Nirvana didn't give Dave Grohl his fame then Foo Fighters might not have been big. In my opinion I like them both.
The Clash. - Userguy44
Korn sorry slip knot...
Pink Floyd. - Userguy44
rush - zxm
Neither of them. - Userguy44
Muse. - Userguy44
Linkin Park... Bigger name and more hits
AC/DC. - Userguy44
AC/DC - zxm
AC/DC. - Userguy44
Ac/Dc - intensity. Nirvana - writing. And ac/dc had more members, and got weak, but we do what woulda happened with nirvana. I say nirvana though.
No Real Simalarities Here Totally Different Style AC/DC-Hard Rock Nirvana-Grunge/Alt - FettiMC

Muse, I guess. My brother would probably kill me if I asked this to him. He loves both bands. - Misfire
I can’t choose. I love both bands. - Userguy44
Radiohead because Muse is a ripoff of them and Queen
