Top 10 Questions About Musical Artists to Ask People


The Top Ten

1 Paul McCartney or Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson.
Not a Beatles fan, sorry. - RiverVibeZ

Michael Jackson hee hee

Paul McCartney... - Misfire

Both overrated in my opinion, but I'd choose Michael Jackson. - Mesel

2 Eminem or Tupac Shakur

Definitely Tupac. - RiverVibeZ

Tupac is GOAT - Userguy44

Eminem - Luckys

Pretty much every rap question with Em in it will result in him winning, even if it's someone as great as Pac. - WonkeyDude98

3 Adele or Amy Winehouse

I haven't listened much of Amy's songs to be honest - Misfire

That's hard, but I think I'm gonna choose the classic and go with Amy - simpsondude

I really like them both but I like Amy more.

Both of them are Great but I like Amy better - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

4 Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin

Pink Floyd
Their singer is much better than Led Zep's and they didn't plagiarize. - RiverVibeZ

Pink Floyd. Many Led Zeppelin songs are rip offs. I used to like Led Zeppelin but when I learned that my favorite songs were rip offs, things changed (Whole Lotta Love, Dazed And Confused, In My Time of Dying, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, I Can't Quit You, Baby, and many more are uncredited covers). Even Stairway to Heaven has a ripped off section. - Metal_Treasure

Led Zeppelin wins my vote, because their songs have so many great riffs and solos. Pink Floyd is legendary though. - MontyPython

Pink Floyd I've always loved. Led Zeppelin are awesome, but Pink Floyd are magnificent. - IronSabbathPriest

5 Guns N' Roses or Nirvana

Guns N' Roses...I like Nirvana too but Guns N' Roses are a much better band. - RiverVibeZ

I dunno. They're both very different. - Misfire

Nirvana - ThatIntrovertedEmo

As much as I like Guns N' Roses, I have to go with Nirvana. - Mesel

6 The Rolling Stones or AC/DC

Rolling Stones. - RiverVibeZ

The Rolling Stones! - Misfire

The Rolling Stones might be more important for music history, but like The Beatles they just kinda mean nothing to me. While AC/DC is probably the most important band in my life. - Mesel

Its hard for me to choose, I'll probably go with The Rolling Stones but still, I'm not quiet sure.

7 Elvis Presley or the Beatles

Definitely The Beatles. - Misfire

Easy, since I have absolutely no connection to the Beatles. Definitely Elvis. - Mesel

Ladies and gentlemen... THE Beatles! - MontyPython

Definitely Elvis. He was one of the Beatles' influences.

8 Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson! - Misfire

It would be interesting if the King of Rock and the King of Pop went head to head. - Bronson

The king of pop wins in my opinion. - MontyPython

Michael. However I like Elvis.

9 Beyoncé or Rihanna?

Rihanna is better. - RiverVibeZ

Not a fan of their music but Beyonce's voice is better for me. - Misfire

Rhianna - Luckys

Rihanna has a better voice.

10 Eminem or Jay-Z

Ehh, not a fan of either but I guess I'll go with Eminem. - RiverVibeZ

Eminem - Luckys

By far Eminem, he's a much better songwriter than Jay-Z. Jay-Z used to be awesome but after his third album he lost his touch a bit.

Eminem by far. - Brobusky


The Newcomers

? BTS or Blackpink?
? Korn or Slipknot?

Korn. - RiverVibeZ

The Contenders

11 Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, or Slayer?

Metallica would be first for me, Megadeth second, Slayer a close third, and Anthrax at the very bottom of the pole. - RiverVibeZ

Megadeth - ThatIntrovertedEmo

4. Anthrax
3. Slayer
2. Metallica
1. Megadeth - BeatlesFan1964

Queen! - Misfire


Queen, but I respect the Who too. Two legends in rock music. - Userguy44

14 Chuck Berry or Elvis Presley

Chuck Berry, but it's hard to choose. - Brobusky

Chuck. - BeatlesFan1964

15 Three Days Grace or Breaking Benjamin?

Breaking Benjamin but Three Days Grace is very good too. I would've said TDG last year because they were my Favorite Band at that time. - Soulstealer

16 Ozzy Osbourne or Marilyn Manson

This is pretty hard as I like both artists but Ozzy Osbourne because he's more influential and is a better lyricist and singer than Marilyn. - RiverVibeZ

Ozzy, Marilyn sucks. - ThatIntrovertedEmo

Ozzy may be the Prince of Darkness, but that makes Marilyn Manson the King of Darkness. Manson all the way on this one - Shake_n_Bake13

Marilyn is too awful for me, Ozzy is awesome. - DCfnaf

17 Selena Gomez or Demi Lovato

Demi obviously - Bangtan_Girl

Demi - Luckys

That's hard, but Demi for singing and Selena for acting - simpsondude

Demi Lovato enjoys singing and has a great voice, Selena is just there really. - DCfnaf

18 Melanie Martinez or Billie Eilish

Um, Billie I guess? - RiverVibeZ

Billie! - Bangtan_Girl

I have never listened to Melanie's music and I've only listened to parts of Billie Eilish's music, so I can't really compare. - Misfire


1 Comment
19 Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood

Taylor Swift because I don't think I've ever heard any of Carrie Underwood's songs. - RiverVibeZ

Taylor - Luckys

Easy, Taylor Swift for the win. Great songwriting, not that manufactured shrill American Idol garbage. Carrie does not sell well outside the US because she sucks

TAYLOR SWIFT all the way. She's a real music artist and is NOT a Neo-Nazi!

20 Bruce Springsteen or The Beatles?

The Beatles. - Misfire

Beatles, obviously. - Brobusky

Beatles - BeatlesFan1964

21 Dream Theater or Blind Guardian?

Dream Theater, no contest. - RiverVibeZ

22 Marilyn Manson or Justin Bieber

Oh my god...why does this question exist? Marilyn obviously. - RiverVibeZ

None - ThatIntrovertedEmo

I don't even like Marilyn Manson but I'd listen to him over Bieber any day of the week. - Brobusky

Is this really a question? Manson, obviously - Shake_n_Bake13

23 Carnifex or Whitechapel?
24 Cattle Decapitation or Aborted?
25 Ratt or Mötley Crüe

Motley Crue. I only know one song by Ratt. - RiverVibeZ

Motley Crüe! While RATT did have a few good songs, the Crüe had several. - Brobusky

Crüe - BeatlesFan1964

26 Justin Bieber or Nicki Minaj

Nicki's best song is better than Justin Beiber's best song so Nicki gets my vote. - RiverVibeZ

Justin Bieber - Userguy44

27 The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?

Both are really good but I'll choose The Beatles. - Misfire

I love both but I'll give this one to The Beatles

28 Tempo or Cosculluela
29 Death or Morbid Angel?

Hard choice, but Death gets my vote. - Brobusky

30 Marilyn Manson or Trent Reznor

Trent. - Soulstealer

Manson - BeatlesFan1964

MJ! MJ! Michael Jackson! - Misfire

Michael Jackson - DCfnaf

32 Zedd or Diplo

Zedd, by a mile. - Entranced98

33 Jay-Z or Kanye West
34 Madonna or Lady Gaga?

Lady Gaga. Not sure if I've heard any of Madonna's music. - RiverVibeZ

Honestly, they both have good songs, but I noticed Madonna's going downhill in song qualities (after the abomination she's made with Nicki Minaj), so I'll go for Gaga. - Swellow

Lady Gaga, honestly. I do love both though. - DCfnaf

Gaga - BeatlesFan1964

35 Rebecca Black or Alison Gold
36 The Chainsmokers or Coldplay

Both are trash but Coldplay is significantly less trash than the Chainsmokers. - RiverVibeZ

Easily Coldplay. - Userguy44

How Can I Say "Neither"? - VideoGamefan5

Coldplay. It's a no-brainer. - Entranced98

37 Mayhem or Burzum?

I only like one song by Mayhem so Burzum it is. - RiverVibeZ

How about neither because they're satanic and are both from the worst subgenre of metal? - DCfnaf

It's close, but Mayhem. - Brobusky

38 Maroon 5 or Coldplay

Maroon 5, but I still love Coldplay!
