Top 10 Musician Feuds that Have Lasted Too Long

For this list - the longer the feud, the better. No strict definition of what is "too long" but I would suggest to think of at least 10 years of hostility - intense exchange of "compliments" or avoiding each other.
The Top Ten
1 Prince vs Michael Jackson

I like Prince much better, as he was a much better musician, but are we seriously going to take it farther than that, especially when they are both six feet under?

Quincy Jones even alleged that Prince tried to run Michael over in his limo in 1983 after Michael upstaged him at a gig.

Wow, that is taking it way too far. Was the feud ever settled, or did they take it to the grave?

2 Liam Gallagher vs Noel Gallagher

I can't say I blame Noel for hating his brother. Liam seems like an insufferable person to be around. No wonder Oasis didn't last that long.

It seems the brothers' hatred is for life.

3 Ray Davies vs Dave Davies

The brothers from the Kinks have been hating each other since their childhood, and perhaps this will never end. Dave said, "I think Ray has only been happy for three years of his life… the three before I was born." On Dave's 50th birthday, Ray jumped on the table and stomped on the cake. A mature person at 53 did this!

4 Dave Mustaine vs Metallica

It started in 1983. In 2010, all Metallica members kissed Dave onstage during the legendary BIG-4 concert in Sofia, but Dave still didn't look happy. As the saying goes, "Dave Mustaine hated Metallica before it was cool." And even after it was cool...

Lars is a tool at the best of times, but Dave just needs to get over the fact that he's in the second-best thrash metal band. It's hardly a bad thing, Dave.

It started when Dave was too drunk and assaulted James.

5 Axl Rose vs Slash

It started around 1993. But in 2016, after 23 years, Axl Rose and Slash reunited for a tour.

6 Eddie Van Halen vs David Lee Roth

It started long ago and is still going on, but they somehow managed to collaborate in the band.

7 Paul Simon vs Art Garfunkel

Yes, the guys from the duo Simon & Garfunkel hate each other.

8 Keith Richards vs Elton John

I must confess to not knowing about this one until now.

Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.

9 Sergei Prokofiev vs Igor Stravinsky
10 Curt Smith vs Roland Orzabal
The Contenders
11 Faith No More vs Red Hot Chili Peppers
12 Axl Rose vs Vince Neil

I wonder if they ever made peace.

13 David Gilmour vs Roger Waters
14 Eminem vs Mariah Carey
15 Chad Kroeger vs Corey Taylor

It's because Corey Taylor hates Nickelback.

16 Oasis vs. Blur

Damon and the rest of Blur are angels in comparison to the Gallagher brothers. No wonder why some people prefer Blur over Oasis.

The fact that the Gallagher brothers wished AIDS on Damon and Alex is just terrible.

17 Morrissey Vs. Robert Smith
18 Gene Simmons Vs. Ace Frehley

Ace and Paul Stanley seem to have an on again/off again relationship, but there is no doubt about the animosity between Ace and Gene. They've been back and forth since the early '80s, with Ace claiming that Gene tried sabotaging his solo career and Gene accusing Ace of being a Nazi sympathizer.

19 Anthony Kiedis Vs. Mike Patton

This whole thing stems from Kiedis accusing Mike Patton of copying his style while he was in Mr. Bungle. What's the style? Being a hype man type. Kiedis would hate most of rap. Also, allegedly, Kiedis still thinks ill of Patton. It's been almost 20 years, dude. Move on!

20 Vince Neil vs Mötley Crüe
21 Nicki Minaj vs Cardi B

This has only been about two years though.

22 Katy Perry vs Taylor Swift

I'm glad that they're friends, but I still think that Taylor Swift is still better than the Queen of Autotune, Katy Perry.

I'm glad they finally became friends again because their feud was so catty!

23 Don Henley vs Don Felder
24 Hilary Duff vs Avril Lavigne
25 David Lee Roth vs Sammy Hagar
