The Top Ten

1 Who is the better singer, Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson

ELVIS! And I'm not a fan of either of them.

MICHAEL - Misfire

Michael Jackson. - Luckys

Elvis. Michael is good too, but I just don’t seem to really enjoy him. - JoeBoi

2 Which song is the best ever, Bohemian Rhapsody or Stairway to Heaven

Bohemian Rhapsody never cared for Stairway to Heaven. - BlueTelegraph

Bohemian Rhapsody. - JoeBoi

Both are good, but Bohemian Rhapsody is way better in my opinion. - Misfire

Both are good, Stairway tells a story and is very iconic (and no they did not steal it, it is confirmed) and its one of my favourite songs, along with one of the greatest guitar solos. But I prefer Bohemian Rhapsody because it is nothing like other music made in those days, it is unique and fun to sing along ith.

3 Who is the best singer of the Beatles, Paul McCartney or John Lennon

I love both, but Paul McCartney. Sorry, John. - Misfire

Paul wins. - JoeBoi

Paul McCartney. - Misfire

McCartney's range once was mind-boggling, but Lennon's was much more distinctive, with qualities suited to several sub-genres.

4 Who is the better singer, Freddie Mercury or Elvis Presley

Freddie Mercury. - RiverVibeZ

Freddie Mercury again - ElSherlock

Freddie Mercury. - Misfire

Elvis was more influential rock artist.

Freddie had better singing abilities. - zxm

5 Who is the better singer, Freddie Mercury or Robert Plant

Freddie. Robert is good too. - JoeBoi

Freddie is better. - Userguy44

Freddie Mercury - ElSherlock

Freddie Mercury. - Misfire

6 Who is the better guitarist, Jimmy Page or Eric Clapton

Neither. When Eric Clapton quit the Yardbirds, he was replaced by Jeff Beck, and nobody missed Clapton. When Jeff Beck left the Yardbirds, he was replaced by Jimmy Page, and everybody wanted Jeff Beck to come back. Out of frustration, Page changed the group's name to Led Zeppelin.

This is a hairy one, and depends entirely on personal taste. Think, however, Page has recorded more celestial moments than Clapton.

Jimmy Page by far bro - 2234

Guys that's why I have made this list. All of them/these are very famous and almost close to their competitors.

These are ongoing debates

Anyway I prefer Page over Clapton.He could play more genres of rock than Clapton.He also created some hard-core guitar riffs and solos which led hard-rock to heavy metal. - zxm

7 Which is the better metal band, Metallica or Megadeth

Metallica. They have more memorable songs and a better singer. - RiverVibeZ

I prefer Metallica - Userguy44

I'll go with Metallica. Megadeth is a great thrash band, but Metallica did stuff other than thrash well, just not as good as they did thrash. Plus, Metallica caused Megadeth to be created. - Skullkid755

I'd tie them. Both went downhill but in their early days produced substantial material. - IronSabbathPriest

8 Who is better, Led Zeppelin or The Rolling Stones

Rolling Stones better than Led Zep. - RiverVibeZ

The Rolling Stones! - Misfire

The Rolling Stones - Userguy44

The Rolling Stones - catwalk

9 Which is the better metal band, Metallica or Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden. - Userguy44

Metallica went downhill in the 90s and haven't really gotten back up. Iron Maiden had Blaze Bailey for a while but even then they produced some of their best live songs such as Sign of the Cross and The Clansman. Check out the Rock in Rio live versions of both of those songs. They will blow your mind. The studio versions are good too.
Maiden's band members also have better and more likeable personalities. - IronSabbathPriest

Metallica, guys. Metallica. Though Iron Maiden are also good. - RiverClanRocks

Iron Maiden. - BeatlesFan1964

10 Who is worse, Rebecca Black, Nicki Minaj, or Justin Bieber

Rebecca is only hated for Friday, Justin has some decent songs and Nikki has nothing to redeem her. - ThrashDeath666

Justin Beiber. - RiverVibeZ

Nicki Minaj. - JoeBoi

Nicki Minaj. - Userguy44

The Contenders

11 Who is the better guitarist, Jimmy Page or Ritchie Blackmore

Ritchie Blackmore is more skilled - Userguy44

Ritchie Blackmore - ElSherlock

Ritchie Blackmore. Page is extremely overrated. - Metal_Treasure

Jimmy Page - catwalk

12 Who is better the hard rock vocalist, Bon Scott or Brian Johnson

Neither are good, but Bon Scott is the better one out of the 2. - RiverVibeZ

Brian is more energetic - zxm

Brian Johnson - catwalk

Bon Scott - BeatlesFan1964

13 Which is best Linkin Park song, Numb or In The End
14 Who invented heavy metal, Black Sabbath or Deep Purple

Deep Purple, although I'm not a fan of them. - RiverVibeZ

Deep Purple and what Metal_Treasure said. - Userguy44

Deep Purple. Black Sabbath played heavy blues rock in the 70s (confirmed by Tony Iommi himself) but metal has nothing to do with blues. Heavy metal and heavy blues rock are stylistically different - metal uses classical scales and not blues scales. For the same reason Led Zep have never been a metal band - they were also blues inspired. So Deep Purple is the answer - they had classically inspired songs. - Metal_Treasure

I wish if someone added Led Zeppelin with it - zxm

15 Which is best Taio Cruz song, Dynamite or Break Your Heart
16 Who's better screamer, Ian Gillan or Rob Halford

Halford. - RiverVibeZ

Ian Gillan. - Userguy44

I can't choose, both are awesome but Gillan started it all, especially in metal singing so Halford himself was influenced by Gillan. Gillan also was Bruce Dickinson's vocal idol. - Metal_Treasure

Halford, close though. - BeatlesFan1964

17 Who was the best member of Guns N' Roses, Axl Rose vs Slash

I have no idea. Both are equally talented. - RiverVibeZ

Slash don't care for the rest of Guns N' Roses. - BlueTelegraph

I don't know. Slash? - Misfire

Slash. - Userguy44

18 Who's the best vocalist, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey or Celine Dion

Whitney - Luckys

Personally I can only tolerate the first two. - truckturner

Whitney Houston. - Misfire

Of those choices, Whitney Houston easily takes the cake. - BeatlesFan1964

19 Who's more talented, Rush or Led Zeppelin

Rush. - RiverVibeZ

Rush because they’re more original. Led Zeppelin plagiarizes for simply being lazy. - JoeBoi

Rush. - Userguy44

Led Zeppelin is a tighter band, however Rush is, overall, more talented. - BeatlesFan1964

20 Who is the queen of pop, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Adele, or Sia

Lady Gaga. - RiverVibeZ

I forgot to add Ariana Grande to this list :( - scienceLover10

Well, most people would say Madonna. Some argue that it’s Janet Jackson though. - Misfire

21 Who is better rock vocalist, Mick Jagger or Robert Plant

Robert is better, but I like Mick's music more. - Misfire

Plant. - Userguy44

Robert Plant is a better singer, however, Mick Jagger has a more distinctive tone to his voice. - BeatlesFan1964

Plant had a great voice, but his falsetto always sounded like a cartoon cat with its tail on fire.
Jagger's voice well-suited to the Stone's repertoire.
