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

Prince vs Michael Jackson

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

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

Jackson, definitely. - Cyri

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

Liam Gallagher vs Noel Gallagher

*grabs popcorn* - Misfire

Noel Gallagher what a cool man - DenyYourMaker

Seems the bros hate is for life. - Metal_Treasure

Ray Davies vs Dave Davies

The bros 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 stamped on the cake. A mature person at 53 did this?! - Metal_Treasure

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... - Metal_Treasure

Lars is a tool at the best of times, but Dave just needs to get over the fact that he's in the #2 thrash metal band. It's hardly a bad thing, Dave. - truckturner

Dave said this in 97? "20 years of bulls*** between me and Metallica is over." No one accepted it because that's no fun. - MattAffterburner

Axl Rose vs Slash

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

But they're bandmates, why? - Misfire

Eddie Van Halen vs David Lee Roth

It started long ago, still going on but they somehow managed to collaborate in the band - Metal_Treasure

Sergei Prokofiev vs Igor Stravinsky

These classical composers (both Russians) had a life-long musical feud - Metal_Treasure

Paul Simon vs Art Garfunkel

I'm indecisive. - Cyri

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

Keith Richards vs Elton John

Didn't know about this feud. I'll investigate.

Must confess to not knowing about this one until now. - truckturner

Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. - Metal_Treasure

Curt Smith vs Roland Orzabal

The Contenders

Faith No More vs Red Hot Chili Peppers
Axl Rose vs Vince Neil

I'm still waiting for the fight

David Gilmour vs Roger Waters
Chad Kroeger vs Corey Taylor

I understand Corey here. - Cyri

Didn't last that long... maybe a few weeks at best. - OnlyInDreams

It’s because Corey Taylor hates Nickelback. - Userguy44

Vince Neil vs Mötley Crüe
Eminem vs Mariah Carey

It started in 2002 with Mariah Carey releasing Clown and Eminem replied in 2005 with Jimmy Crack Corn and Mariah Carey released obsessed in 2009 followed by Eminem releasing The Warning which ultimately ended the feud - Unnamed Google User Remade

Nas vs Jay Z

It started in 1996 and ended in 2005 with Jay guesting on a Nas track (that's about 10 years). - Metal_Treasure

Joey Ramone vs Johnny Ramone
Katy Perry vs Taylor Swift

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

I'm glad they finally came to be friends again, because their feud was so catty! - PandasNGaga

Oasis vs. Blur
