Greatest Rock Song Face-off

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody Vs. Stairway To Heaven

Both are good but Bohemian Rhapsody is much better in my opinion! - Misfire


BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY! No competition.


2 Back In Black Vs. Welcome To The Jungle

I don't know. Welcome to the Jungle, I guess. - Misfire

Welcome To The Jungle. - Userguy44

Back in Black I’d say. - DaringXx

probably good face-off
i'm all about AC/DC

3 Master of Puppets vs. Holy Wars

Its drums vd drums

4 Beat it Vs. Eat It

I haven't heard the other one. - Misfire

5 The Four Horsemen Vs. The Mechanix

Easily The Four Horsemen. I don’t like The Mechanix very much. - Userguy44

The Four Horsemen!

6 The Trooper vs Painkiller


7 Highway Star vs Immigrant Song

Highway Star. - Userguy44

Highway Star easy easy

Deep Purple vs Led Zep - two of the greatest bands of all time with some of their fastest songs.

8 We Will Rock You Vs. Crazy Train

HOLY GOD - DaringXx

9 Back In Black vs. Black Night

Easily, Black Night by Deep Purple!
It gets my vote because it's more energetic and harder - that's what I expect from a hard rock song. The riff is a killer as well as the solos - guitar and keyboars.

AC/DC vs Deep Purple!

10 Iron Man Vs. Stairway To Heaven

A Dream Face Off, they should of done this face off when sabbath and zeppelin were at there best!

Stairway for sure. Ironman is a few notes repeated and dressed up a little.

This face off doesn't even make sense - one of the simpliest songs in the world vs one of the most complex. Not to talk about vocals...

The Contenders

11 Bad Medicine Vs. Sweet Child o' Mine

Richie is the best ever! - DaringXx

Both are Great songs, but 'Bad Medicine' All the way!
Guns N' Roses has no chance Against the Mighty BON JOVI! - Nirmal1991USA

Bad medicine all the way! Its one of bon jovis greatest songs ever! Bon jovi will live on forever!

Bad Medicine is an Epic compared to Sweet Child o' Mine which I'm fed up of listening... Both Richie & Slash are Awesome Guitarists, but MAN! Richie Sambora is the GOD!

18 Down With the Sickness vs. Freak on a Leash
19 Whole Lotta Love Vs. Barracuda

Barracuda. - Userguy44

Robert Plant would murder Ann Wilson vocally any day of the week. After all she tried to steal his style but we see who has stood the test of time. Whole Lotta Love for Led and Robert.

DRY COOUUNNTTYYY! Crazy solo! way more worked on, and beautiful. - DaringXx
