Best Rock Band Face Offs
The Top Ten Best Rock Band Face Offs
Metallica. I've gotten more used to Megadeth as going back and looking at Megadeth, I've realize Dave Mustaine is not a bad singer and is overhated but nonetheless James is still a much better singer.
Also I think the musicians of Metallica are more talented than that of Megadeth. - DarkBoi-X
Megadeth. I used to prefer Metallica because of Dave Mustaine's vocals but after their first two albums, Metallica's music lost its dynamics and they relied on one riff, one verse and one chorus melody to compose their songs, there are no breaks, no unexpected moments. Sad but True is a prominent example: every single note has the same volume and tone, there are no speed changes, and the Taddaddadda tara rara rara riff is repeated through its whole running time. Megadeth didn't even do this in their commercial era. - Alkadikce
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..!
Nirvana. Again, I've gotten more used to Guns N' Roses as I've stopped hating them once I listened to the song Civil War and their cover of Knocking On Heavens Door but Nirvana is still the better band easily. - DarkBoi-X
Both have only a few songs on each album I like, but Guns N' Roses's best song (Estranged) is better than any Nirvana song, so I'll go with Guns N' Roses - Alkadikce
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!
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.
Queen. Led Zeppelin feels a bit dated and Freddie Mercury could sing the phone book and still make a good song - Alkadikce
Queen. The obvious choice. No one beats the outstanding vocals of the man mercury himself. - DaringXx
Queen wind this one
Queen no contest for sure.
Judas Priest stinks of greed. In the 1980s they made glam rock, in 1997, groove metal, a nu-metal song in 2001 and a symphonic metal album in 2008. Always what was popular at the time.
Judas Priest has a snoozefest 13-minute doom metal epic and apart from that, didn't even approach the territory of Steve Harris's epics like Hallowed Be Thy Name, Fear of the Dark, Dance of Death, When the Wild Wind Blows etc. Cathedral Spires could have been their best song but the last 3 minutes is a painful repeat.
Influence doesn't count when it comes to judging which band is better, even though Judas Priest is the older and more influential metal band. Iron Maiden was still very influential towards power metal and early Slayer to say two examples.
Iron Maiden wrote songs about a man who committed suicide because of being afraid of the apocalypse, the multitude of faith and science, some lyrics based on sci-fi novels or historical events. Some of Judas Priest's lyrical genius ...more - Alkadikce
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.
COME ON, HOW is this not on here already? - UFasten8Me
Also, Fun Fact: I've seen both of these bands live. - RiverVibeZ
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.
I'll have to go with Nirvana because I know more songs by them. - RiverVibeZ
Definitely Alice In Chains. - Soulstealer
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.
The Stones - more rock and less pop. - Metal_Treasure
How is this not number 1. They were two of the greatest rock bands of all time (if not the two greatest rock bands.). They had a legendary rivalry
Incomparable Rise Against is a Punk/Hardcore Band and Thirty Seconds to Mars is an Alternative Rock Band.
Thirty Seconds to Mars easily wins. - Soulstealer
Winner is 30 Seconds To Mars. Just my a little.
and 30STM Takes the prize wins for sure :P - Bo0o0oreD
Rise Against would win
System Of A Down because the Serj simply has a better voice than Corey. Yeah, Corey has a 5 octave range but a lot of his screaming feels forced while Serj's actually feels intense and let's not forget Serj's clean vocals which are also better than Corey's clean vocals as well.
I also prefer the overall music of System of a Down to that of Slipknot. - DarkBoi-X
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!
Green Day wins because people like them - UsernameHere
Green Day by a Mile
Green Day! No hate on Nickelback though. - Misfire
Ill take blow my brains out for 400 alex
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 duh. - Userguy44
AC/DC...I never liked Deep Purple. - RiverVibeZ
Queen because Aerosmith is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to popular Classic Rock bands. Steven TyLer's vocals can be awful sometimes. Freddie Mercury, on the other hand, had great vocals. - DarkBoi-X
Queen v.s. Aerosmith, Aerosmiths good, but not Queen, Queen wrote so many great songs like Bohemian Rhapsody, Somebody to Love, We are the Champions, so Queen all the way
HA HA HA! Queen would totally win. No Aerosmith song can match ANY Queen song! Are you crazy? Freddie's got the voice, Brian wins for guitar, Deacy SO wins for bass no matter what and Roger is going to SMASH Roger!
Aerosmith is still making albums, have a huge fan base, they tour, and they are, and always have been the greatest band of all time
my name says who will win
Van Halen. No questions.
Led Zeppelin, Van Halen is too glammish for my taste - Alkadikce
Van Halen. - RiverVibeZ
Deep Purple for pretty much the same reasons I prefer Megadeth over Metallica. Black Sabbath's riffs are repeated too much and the lack of variation makes it exhausting to listen to them (notable example: Electric Funeral). - Alkadikce
Deep Purple - better musicianship, better live.
Black Sabbath superior to Deep Purple. - RiverVibeZ
Black Sabbath by far!
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.
Breaking Benjamin, but Three Days Grace is great too. - Soulstealer
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
Avenged Sevenfold. Disturbed is ass. - RiverVibeZ
Both of these bands are pretty terrible.
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.
Nickel back is all Airy Voice! A7X always wins this one. Though their early albums has to much screams. Listen to Nightmare, The Stage, Hail to The King, etc...
Nirvana. Never saw the appeal for Pearl Jam, their music is too boring. - RiverVibeZ
personally I like NIRVANA better but o well -
Pearl Jam. Nirvana is so overrated! - Userguy44
Pearl Jam is so much better. - Soulstealer
Dio, because he has a better singing voice and vocal range. Ozzy is good too, but his voice can get a lil grating at times. - RiverVibeZ
Dios a better singer but sabbath was better with ozzy
Dio! - Userguy44
Linkin Park, I hate Green Day's nasal sleepy vocals and not a fan of pop-punk as a whole - Alkadikce
Green Day, maybe? - Misfire
NVM, I honestly kinda prefer Green Day. - DarkBoi-X
Green Day - zxm
Iron Maiden. Always. m/
Iron Maiden best band. - RiverVibeZ
IRON MAIDEN easily. OZZY IS HIGHLY OVERRATED.
That's hard... But IRON MAIDEN
Pink Floyd is the best of all times...
Pink Floyd is the best Classic Rock band so... - DarkBoi-X
The Beatles. Sowwy... Lol - Misfire
Pink Floyd - DarkBoi-X
Sorry, I love ya, Guns N Roses
Metallica is my favorite band. - RiverVibeZ
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 is
I like Iron Maiden more
I respect Black Sabbath more - Alkadikce
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 metal
Sorry corn your good but system has one of the most uneak sounds.
Korn. - RiverVibeZ
SYSTEM OF A DOWN FOR SURE
This Is No Contest-Foo Fighters Wins - FettiMC
Metallica beats System of a Down by a hundred miles. - RiverVibeZ
Metallica, they're just that good
System Of A Down - DarkBoi-X
Metallica. - 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.
This is hard. I go with Nirvana. - Userguy44
Probably Foo Fighters. - Soulstealer
Nirvana - DarkBoi-X
NIN. Trent had more passion, and they just amazing
Manson. Don't like NIN. - RiverVibeZ
Nine Inch Nails - DarkBoi-X
Oasis. - zxm
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
Boston I’d say. Lol. Love da joke - DaringXx
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
Who win the band
Pink Floyd, their music has more emotion and I think it will stand the test of time better - Alkadikce
This is the hardest question ever! I go with 50/50. Both bands are legendary! - Userguy44
TOO HARD TO CHOSE!
Pink Floyd - DarkBoi-X
Red Hot Chili Peppers, but my decision might do more with quantity than quality. - Alkadikce
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 Chili Peppers
Red Hot Chili Peppers. - Userguy44
Van Halen. Aerosmith has gotta be one of the most annoying Rock bands I've ever listened to. - RiverVibeZ
Aerosmith! - Misfire
Aerosmith. - Userguy44
Led Zeppelin all the way!
Deep Purple wins! - Userguy44
Deep Purple. Most talented musician. a lot of great songs.
Dream Theater for the win. - RiverVibeZ
Dream Theater. - zxm
Their music is incredibly similar. Moon vs Bonham, Roger vs Robert. That'd be amazing. - shallowcal
The Who! - Userguy44
The Smashing Pumpkins. - Soulstealer
Muse. - Userguy44
Linkin Park... Bigger name and more hits
Nirvana, but why does this face-off exist? It's like cats vs hamsters - Alkadikce
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
Nirvana - DarkBoi-X
Pink Floyd, I might go with Rush if not for the vocals - Alkadikce
Pink Floyd. - Userguy44
rush - zxm
The Clash. - Userguy44
Coldplay'S music is more soothing and they have composed some of the best guitar riffs ever.
Coldplay win this one. I like Maroon 5, but Coldplay are better.
Old Maroon 5. - Misfire
Muse, I guess. My brother would probably kill me if I asked this to him. He loves both bands. - Misfire
Radiohead because Muse is a ripoff of them and Queen
Radiohead - DarkBoi-X
muse - zxm
KoRn. Slipknot has a stronger "high school bully" edge as someone on another list pointed it out - Alkadikce
Korn sorry slip knot...
Slipknot - DarkBoi-X
