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.

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
Guns N' Roses for a long shot I just hate grunge but kurt and dave were a bad assV 22 Comments
Queen wind this one
Queen no contest for sure.
Queen wins without any doubt

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
Real Madrid vs Sevilla
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 - zxmV 4 Comments
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
Is this is joke? They're both great. Queen in terms of singles and Aerosmith in terms of albums? I guess?V 10 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 - 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 - zxm
my name says who will win
Van Halen. No questions.
Green Day wins because people like them - UsernameHere
Green Day by a Mile
Ill take blow my brains out for 400 alex
both suckV 3 Comments
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 is good nu metal (somewhat of an oxymoron) slipknot is emoV 4 Comments
Dios a better singer but sabbath was better with ozzy
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 for sure can you just compare with them
linkin park wins every time
Pink Floyd is the best of all times...
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
Maiden - zxmV 1 Comment
Iron Maiden. Always. m/
That's hard... But IRON MAIDEN
IRON MAIDEN easily. OZZY IS HIGHLY OVERRATED.
Maiden - zxm
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
TOO HARD TO CHOSE!
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
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. - FettiMC
Alice by a long shot
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
Give me downvotes. But Guns N' Roses. After all opinion matters. (by the way, early version of Guns N' Roses.) - zxmV 1 Comment
Deep Purple. Most talented musician. a lot of great songs.
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.
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.
TIE!V 1 Comment
NIN. Trent had more passion, and they just amazing
Metallica, they're just that good
Dream Theater. - zxm
personally I like NIRVANA better but o well -
Pearl Jam for me
PJ for life! - Songsta41
Their music is incredibly similar. Moon vs Bonham, Roger vs Robert. That'd be amazing. - shallowcal
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.
Linkin Park... Bigger name and more hits
Korn sorry slip knot...
rush - 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 - zxm
Winner is 30 Seconds To Mars. Just my a little.

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 - zxm
Green Day - zxm
