Best Rock Band Face Offs
The Top Ten
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.
Easy. Metallica! - Userguy44V 8 Comments
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!
Nirvana they defined a music genre guns n roses is good but their fan base is full of people who are so close minded when it comes to music that they think guns and roses is the best at every aspect when they don't even come close to being compared with the legends - Isaac15

Queen wind this one
Queen. The obvious choice. No one beats the outstanding vocals of the man mercury himself. - DaringXx
Queen no contest for sure.
Queen of course! - Userguy44V 16 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.
COME ON, HOW is this not on here already? - UFasten8Me
I go with Maiden. Although I like Judas Priest too. - Userguy44
Well let's see -
Rob is better than Bruce in my opinion (Everything is)
Glenn is better than Dave Murray
Adrian Smith is better than KK
Steve Harris is better than Ian Hill
and Scott and Nico are equal.
Now, their best songs vs eachother- Painkiller is better than Hallowed be Thy Name. (In my opinion) So Judas wins. - SoldierOfFortune
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
The 2 greatest bands of all time. Period.
Stones. - Userguy44V 5 Comments
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
Deep Purple - zxm
Deep Purple - better musicianship, better live.
Black Sabbath - SoldierOfFortune
Sabbath by a long shot. More inflential, better albums, better musicians, more original
Deep Purple! - Userguy44V 1 Comment
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
Queen, but Aerosmith is good too. - Userguy44V 12 Comments
my name says who will win
Van Halen. No questions.
Van Halen. - Userguy44
Green Day wins because people like them - UsernameHere
Green Day by a Mile
Ill take blow my brains out for 400 alex
Green Day. - Userguy44V 4 Comments
Dios a better singer but sabbath was better with ozzy
Dio! - 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!
System of a Down. I can’t stand Slipknot. - Userguy44V 5 Comments
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.
Linkin Park by far! - Userguy44V 6 Comments
Pink Floyd is the best of all times...
Pink Floyd. - 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 metal
Iron Maiden. - Userguy44V 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.
They both suck monkey balls porcoddio
Iron Maiden. Always. m/
That's hard... But IRON MAIDEN
IRON MAIDEN easily. OZZY IS HIGHLY OVERRATED.
Iron Maiden. I don’t like Ozzy’s voice. - Userguy44V 1 Comment
This is the hardest question ever! I go with 50/50. Both bands are legendary! - Userguy44
TOO HARD TO CHOSE!
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.
Alice In Chains! - Userguy44
Oh This Is Tough Gonna With Nirvana But AIC Is Right Behind Them. - FettiMCV 1 Comment
Aerosmith. - Userguy44
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
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
Metallica. - Userguy44V 2 Comments
Deep Purple wins! - Userguy44
Deep Purple. Most talented musician. a lot of great songs.
NIN. Trent had more passion, and they just amazing
Metallica, they're just that good
Metallica. - 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 Chili Peppers. - Userguy44
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.
2 different tastes in music here... But nirvana has to win.
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.

Dream Theater. - zxm
personally I like NIRVANA better but o well -
Pearl Jam. Nirvana is so overrated! - Userguy44
Pearl Jam for me
PJ for life! - Songsta41
Their music is incredibly similar. Moon vs Bonham, Roger vs Robert. That'd be amazing. - shallowcal
The Who! - 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
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 - 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
AC/DC. - Userguy44
Winner is 30 Seconds To Mars. Just my a little.
and 30STM Takes the prize wins for sure :P - Bo0o0oreD
Rise Against would win
Who win the band
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.
Coldplay. - Userguy44
Coldplay - zxm
Green Day - zxm
Linkin Park. - Userguy44
Everyone, winner is... :DRAW!
Linkin Park 0-0 Evanescence!
Because are two my favorite bands, forever.
Chester, Mike and Amy is for the wins. Love you guys!
Go Linkin Park, Go Evanescence!
Should be number 1!
My two favorite bands.
Evanescence is good, but I prefer LP so LP. - Userguy44
Green Day. - Userguy44
Pink Floyd is superior!
Doors all the way!
Both psych gods,but the floyd just kept on progressing.
Floyd - zxm
Radiohead because Muse is a ripoff of them and Queen
muse - zxm
I can’t choose. I love both bands. - Userguy44
Radiohead. I can’t like muse. I’ve tried. But naahh - DaringXx
