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

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?

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?

Jackson, definitely.

Liam Gallagher vs Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher what a cool man

Seems the bros hate is for life.

*grabs popcorn*

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?!

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 #2 thrash metal band. It's hardly a bad thing, Dave.

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

Axl Rose vs Slash

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

But they're bandmates, why?

Eddie Van Halen vs David Lee Roth

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

Sergei Prokofiev vs Igor Stravinsky

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

Paul Simon vs Art Garfunkel

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

I'm indecisive.

Keith Richards vs Elton John

Must confess to not knowing about this one until now.

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

Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.

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
Morrissey Vs. Robert Smith

These two have been feuding since the early 80’s. Who’s the better depressing singer? Well…

Gene Simmons Vs. Ace Frehley

Ace and Paul Stanley seem to be on again/off again with each other in terms of being chill, but there is no doubt to the animosity between Ace and Gene. They’ve been back and forth with each other since the early 80’s, with Ace claiming that Gene tried sabotaging his solo career, and Gene accusing Ace of being a nazi sympathizer.

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!

Chad Kroeger vs Corey Taylor

I understand Corey here.

It’s because Corey Taylor hates Nickelback.

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

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).

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!

Oasis vs. Blur
Nicki Minaj vs Cardi B
