3 Guns N' Roses or Nirvana

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

Nirvana. - Luckys

4 Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin

Pink Floyd. I love their music. - Userguy44

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 Elvis Presley or the Beatles

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.

This is actually a tough one. - cosmo

6 The Rolling Stones or AC/DC

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.

The Rolling Stones are good, but AC/DC is amazing. So they get my vote - Shake_n_Bake13

The Rolling Stones wins my vote. AC/DC are amazing though. - MontyPython

7 Adele or Amy Winehouse

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

Can I say neither? - Brobusky

8 Eminem or Jay-Z

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

Eminem obviously - DCfnaf

9 Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson

Elvis Presley, definitely. Michael Jackson's abnormally overrated. - Mesel

Michael Jackson! - TheFourthWorld

Michael. However I like Elvis.

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

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

Chuck. - BeatlesFan1964

The Contenders

11 Ozzy Osbourne or Marilyn Manson

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

They both suck, but I'll go with Ozzy.

Um..I have to go with Ozzy.

18 Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood

Taylor - Luckys

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

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

Tough one since I like both, but Carrie Underwood. - DCfnaf

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

Gaga - BeatlesFan1964
