Top Ten Music Questions to Ask Users of TheTopTens


The Top Ten

1 Old Music or New Music?

Old - Oliversky

Majority of the new songs are actually great. It's just that the popular minority of the songs are really badly and stupidly made.

It mostly depends. I love the 2000's music (especially alternative) but most of new mainstream pop music sucks. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

For me personally, part of what makes music really fun for me is discovering new artists/bands and seeing what they're going to do next. I guess that's the primary reason why I gravitate more towards newer music.

2 Rock or Metal?

Metal is that tiny division of rock, which spans too many subgenres to be classed as one. I'd go for classic rock. - PositronWildhawk

Metal, I has more potential and just cooler with the bands, I have a list with why metal is better. - McKing1003

I enjoy both, but honestly I prefer something in the middle. Like hard rock or heavy alternative rock. I guess if I was forced to pick between the two it would be rock. - Flowersocks2137

Metal is a subgenre of rock, but out of all rock subgenres, I think metal is the best, so metal - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

3 Michael Jackson or Elvis Presley?

I know there're a lot of Michael Jackson fans on TheTopTens, but I'd go with Elvis. I like Jackson, but Elvis is the king and will always be. He's just outstanding. - Mesel

Honestly, I hate this question so much because I absolutely love both of them. But I'd have to go with Michael Jackson. - RockFashionista

Michael Jackson definitely with his songs like you rock my world, beat it, thriller, smooth criminal are amazing songs

I think Michael Jackson because of his songs like" thriller " and one of his earliest songs like the ABC song.

4 Classical or Jazz?

Such a hard question - Rhapsody

Classical wins it. Who can beat people like Mozart, Beethoven, and Bach. They are undefeated. - Beatlesboy9

Classical. Classical music makes me relaxed and makes me think. It's really good music to listen to when you need to calm down or think about things - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Probably classical, since I play Cello. But it wins by a inch. I love Jazz too, it reminds me of Back to the Future! - MontyPython

5 Pink Floyd or Eagles?

I change my mind, Pink Floyd is outstanding. They blew my mind after I listened to The Trial. Here's a story now! I watched a video called, "Top 10 Greatest Rock Bands of All Time" and Pink Floyd was number four while Queen was number three. I never really listened to Pink Floyd at the time. Then I scrolled to the comments, and one guy said, "If you switched four and three around, I'd be satisfied. Otherwise, good list! " Being the butthurt jerk I was back then, I DESPISED Pink Floyd. Calling them and their fans, "Overrated" and "Picky". I then listened to more and more of their music and began to appreciate their fans. Now, they are easily one of my favorite bands of all time. Rock on Pink Floyd, rock on. - MontyPython

Look at my username. - PinkFloyd87

In my humble opinion, too close to call. Diverse but brilliant artists who I love but my preference varies with mood, setting, etc - Billyv

Pink Floyd win easily. Although I like The Eagles as well. - IronSabbathPriest

6 Linkin Park or Green Day?

Green Day for the win! I honestly never really heard a Linkin Park song so I have to go with Green Day. I love Basket Case and Bang Bang. I am new to Green Day, but so far, this is the best band I have heard.

Green Day but because I haven't listened to Linkin Park. Why am I even answering this? - keyson

I can't chose. They are both amazing in their own and they both make great music. Billie Joe Armstrong and Chester Bennington are amazing singers - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Green Day by far cause I enjoy their music more and I find their music to have more value then Linkin Park just my opinion.

7 2000s or 2010s?

2000's had a lot more better music, and the high peak of Blink-182 and Angels And Airwaves, as well as Green Day. At least rock was still recognized in these times, all we get nowadays is bad rap songs.

Depends. For pop it's 2010s and for rap it's 2000s. It's a tie. - AlphaQ

2010s because my favorite song was released

I like both decades of music equally. - SwagFlicks

8 Deadmau5 or Skrillex?

Deadmau5 is more melodious, he has more meaningful songs, and he's just cooler. - PositronWildhawk

Why you people are thumbs downing my comment! Wheres the talent people! All they do is mess with computers and other electronic crap! - McKing1003

They could be huge dubstep fans. And yes, I don't like dubstep that much. - Mumbizz01

Skrillex? I don't know. I'm not into dubstep - AnonymousChick

Deadmau5 is, always was and will always be 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 times better than Skrillex for many reasons and in many ways - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

9 The Beatles or Led Zeppelin?

The Beatles. For some reason, I'm not as into Led Zeppelin as everybody else seems to be. But, The Beatles will ALWAYS be #1 in my book - kaitlynrad11

The Beatles. I don't know why, but I don't like Led Zeppelin as much as other bands. But they are still great. - Pony

The Beatles always win, no matter who they are matched up against.

Led Zeppelin because they're just classic british rock. The Beatles are also good. - IronSabbathPriest

10 Queen or Journey?

Queen. No questions asked. I like Journey, but I ADORE Queen. Queen is my favorite band EVER. Bohemian Rhapsody is my favorite Queen song. Long live the legendary Queen! - MontyPython

Queen because they have some of the most Iconic songs. Journeys good but the only iconic song I can think of is "Don't Stop Believing." - MrQuaz680

Queen definitely wins. Freddie Mercury's voice was one of the best in history. - ethanmeinster

This is actually hard for me. I like queen and journey both, but queen has made more definitive songs, so I'm gonna say them. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter


The Contenders

11 80's Metallica or Post-80's Metallica?

May sound funny. But 90s Metallica. - zxm

This is very hard, but it just has to be both. - Mumbizz01

12 AC/DC or KISS?


AC/DC - ElSherlock

AC/DC. - 3DG20

13 5 Seconds of Summer or One Direction?

5SOS now I hate Shes Kinda Hot but Looks So Perfect is great and meanwhile I hate 1D except Drag Me Down and Zayn's new music is bad so I want 1D back. - TopTenListmaker

I don't like either but I guess 5Sos despite how much I dislike that band at least they aren't as bad as One Direction.

My friend like 5sos so ill just choose that. - AnonymousChick

5 Seconds of Summer, even though I don't like either. - Powerfulgirl10

14 Megadeth or Metallica?

Metallica has gone downhill by Megadeth has stayed on top.

2 awesome bands I'll go with Metallica more memorable slightly. - htoutlaws2012

Megadeth all the way. Modern Metallica sucks! - DynastiNoble

Metallica, sorry I don't like Megadeath vary much - JCHOW

15 Auto-Tune or Real Vocals?

Real vocals. Use too much auto-tune, and you obviously have no talent. Just my opinion. - ThatStrangeKid42

It depends on how you use autotune. If you slather yourself with it like Chris Brown, you will not go far. But use it just enough like Michael Jackson and it is perfect. - WonkeyDude98

Is this a joke? You're asking a musician auto-tune or real vocals? Very funny. - PianoQueen

Natural or implants? Pleasure or pain? Trash or Talent? - Billyv

16 Metal or Electronic?

Hard one.

I've recently started listening to Metal and I love it. Although I would choose Electronic music because I listened to it for a long, long time and I love way too many songs in that genre. - wrests

Metal even thought I'm not a huge fan of the genre I would rather listen to that then Electronic.

Electronic! I love the sound of it! Beautiful, modern, and happy songs! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Easily Electronic, It's Cool. I Kinda Dislike Metal. - AlphaQ

17 Nirvana or Foo Fighters?

Nirvana all the way! My 6th favorite band of all time! But I also love Dave Grohl's decision to be in the Foo Fighters after Nirvana. That makes me happy and it seems like he won't ever give up! Give em' hell Grohl! - MontyPython

Nirvana Is Something That Is Very Special And I Don't Think Any Band Can Bring Me That Happiness Like Nirvana.The Only I Can Think That Can Come Close Is The Jimi Hendrix Experience And The Foo Fighters.I Gonna Go With Nirvana But F.F Is An Amazing Band. - FettiMC

Foo Fighters are awesome. I'm seeing them in May 2015. - IronSabbathPriest

Nirvana. I love In Utero. One of the greatest songs of all time is Smells Like Teen Spirit. - DynastiNoble

18 Moby or Massive Attack?

Moby No Questions Asked More Emotional And Deep - Seventies-Music-Fan

Massive Atack - ProPanda

Tie. - 445956

Moby - JCHOW

19 Listen to St. Anger or Lulu?

St anger had some good music but lulu I couldn't listen a few minutes of it plus it's the only Metallica album I don't have

St. Anger by a landslide. It has good songs. But lulu made my ears bleed. - DoroExploro13

St. ANGER. Lulu is trash. - PinkFloyd87

St. Anger I can't stand to listen 1 min. Of lulu

20 Halsey or Melanie Martinez?

Halsey is the best singer ever. Did you ever realize that Melanie Martinez's songs...all sound the same? Also, everyone is judging my favorite person in the world on ONE song that she was FEATURED in. Listen to Control, Colors, Not Afraid Anymore, Haunting, Coming Down, Bad At Love, and Sorry. Then come back and say that Melanie is better. Without lying.

Melanie Martinez. Halsey doesn't bring anything new to the table. Martinez does, though I don't really care about either. - djpenquin999

Melanie. Halsey's song CLoser is just pitiful, while MM has songs about plastic surgery, being crazy, and kidnapping. - AnonymousChick

Halsey. Fight me - ProPanda

21 Classic Pop or Modern Rock?

Modern Rock.

Modern Rock

Both are great. with classic pop you really cool stuff like beach boys, beatles, and phil spector.there is some really good modern rock, although it doesn't have mainstream populairity. however, I'm more into classic pop. - RecklessGreed

22 Bon Jovi or Justin Bieber?

Bon Jovi. They have fans. Actual fans, and real music at the least. I don't even know if Justin Bieber has any of these two. But Bon Jovi has a lot of advantages over Justin Bieber. Not to mention that Justin is talentless.

Bon Jovi. Why are you comparing the two anyway? - RiverClanRocks

Bon Jovi all the way Bieber is a pig faced ass with no talent

Bon Jovi, probably. I never listened to any of his songs, but Justin Bieber SUCKS.

23 Play or 18?
24 Black Sabbath or Deep Purple?

Deep Purple, although they are both amazing. It’s just Deep Purple is more proggy

25 Chester Bennington or Mike Shinoda?
26 Are AC/DC overrated?

Post-Back in Black, yes. - BeatlesFan1964

27 Alessia Cara or Daya?


28 Dark Side Of The Moon 1000 times or Abbey Road once

I probably already have listened to Dark Side a thousand time but it still gets my vote - Brobusky

Dark Side of the Moon 1000 times, because after, I could listen to Abbey Road 1000 times. - BeatlesFan1964

Abbey Road once because I would get bored of Dark Side of the Moon if I listened to it 1k times - DoroExploro13

Abbey Road...i ain't going to listen 1000 times cus' I have better things to do - CerealGuy

29 Every Disco Song In Existence or Every Rap Song In Existence?

I'd rather listen to Bee Gees than Kanye West. - htoutlaws2012

Disco, I like the Bee Gees' songs, a few of them. Especially Stayin' Alive. Rap does not really appeal to me, but there is some good rap like Tupac.

I'd choose the Bee Gees over Lil Wayne any day - LizardKing99

Disco. A lot of rap music artists suck. - Powerfulgirl10

30 Blood on the Tracks, Highway 61, or Blonde on Blonde?
31 Downtempo or Ambient?
32 Avenged Sevenfold or Slipknot?

Slipknot. Avenged Sevenfold's a great band, but I hate the fact they got popular cause of The Rev. - Mumbizz01

I hate both so eh neither.

A7X. I really like how badass they are.

Slipknot. Avenged Sevenfold is close though - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

33 Charlie Puth or Shawn Mendes?

I'd rather drink bleach than choose between these two!

I don't like either but I'll go with Charlie Puth.

I HATE BOTH but shawn mendes is like 2% bettr

I have to say Charlie Puth(even both suck) - MLPFan

34 Guns N Roses or Twisted Sister

Guns N' Roses

Guns N roses - AnonymousChick

Guns N' Roses - zxm

Both - catwalk

35 Led Zeppelin or Rush?

Led Zeppelin but Rush is amazing - Ajkloth

I have to say Rush. They produce better sound with only three members! Plus, they revolutionized rock music. They can do hard rock, progressive,and rock with reggae notes. They take the cake.

Zeppelin but I rush is a close call

Zeppelin, but it's close. - BeatlesFan1964

36 90s or 2000s?

I like both decades, but I'm gonna have to go with the 2000s because a lot of my favourite bands were big in that decade - Rorywilbren

90's, hands down - JCHOW

2000s The bands were more memorable and sounded better in comparsion.

90s Britpop. 2000s Alternatives - zxm

1 Comment
37 Random Album Title or For Lack of a Better Name?
38 An Eternity Of Metallica CD's or A 30 Second Sample Of Stairway To Heaven?

Eternity of Metallica CD's not a Zeppelin fan.

The former. Infinite Metallica CDs. A dream come true. - RiverClanRocks

Both are torture. Is "death" an option? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

39 Imagine Dragons or X Ambassadors?

Oh god this is tough...I thing imagine drags - Toucan

Imagine it Imagine Dragons - zxm

X ambassadors

Imagine Dragons - TheInsomniac

40 Rock or Rap?

Rock, because to me, rap isn't real music. Music should be telling some sort of story trough lyrics and sound effects. Rap is just rhyming words and singing really fast. To me, rock has so much more meaning. Strong lyrics, great vocals, and cool sound effects should be considered music. Therefore, I pick rock - kaitlynrad11

Rap fans have Eminem who could sing fast but we have Gillan and Halford who could both sing in low-pitched and high-pitched voice - zxm

Rap is not actually "music".

I'll put it to you like so: rock has actually produced worthwhile music. - PositronWildhawk

Rock. Rap isn't too bad, but I think rock is way better. Also, why not combine them? Rap rock? (Not my number 1 favorite subgenre of rock, but Rap Rock is pretty good) - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

41 Twenty One Pilots or Fall Out Boy?

I hate both and both make me ears bleed so neither.

Fall Out Boy. Twenty One Pilots sounds like Eminem trying to be rock.

Huh this is hard. I'd have to pick FallOutBoy, because they're a lot less cringeworthy, though they never really try to make a huge statement. - WonkeyDude98

Both of them. Less cringeworthy isn't it? - DynastiNoble

42 The Gorillaz or Alvin & The Chipmunks?

Gorillaz no hesitation - Seventies-Music-Fan

The Gorrilaz definitely! - Powerfulgirl10


43 All Killer, No Filler or Enema of the State?
44 Heathens or You Don't Own Me?

You Don't Own Me is by far better - ProPanda

Heathens - Lunala

Heathens - AnonymousChick

45 Hybrid Theory or Meteora?

Hmm probably Meteora.

46 The Black Album (Metallica) or the White Album (The Beatles)?

Oh, the White Album is awful. The Black Album easily. - SwagFlicks

The black album is not overrated. The white one is.

The Black Album! - htoutlaws2012

The White Album - BeatlesFan1964

47 Lana Del Rey or Marina and the Diamonds?

I'll go with Marina & the Diamonds.

Lana del rey

Lama del rey

48 90s Skillet or 2000s Skillet?

2000s Skillet.

49 Antichrist Superstar or Reign in Blood?

Reign in Blood. The heaviest and one of the greatest metal albums of all time - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Easy reign in blood

50 Country Music or Pop?

Pop. I don't listen to country music because I have my reasons. - Pegasister12

Pop. Unlike country music, pop has more gems. - SwagFlicks

Not a big fan of either genre but I'd go with Country it's not as bad as Modern Pop music.

Pop as long as I can pick who I listen to. - AnonymousChick
