Top 10 Questions About Musical Artists to Ask People

1 Paul McCartney or Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson is far better than Paul McCartney. The ultimate battle would be Elvis Presley vs Michael Jackson vs The Beatles (all four of them) - Bronson

That's tough, but I think it's almost like The Beatles or Michael, so I'll pick Paul McCartney - simpsondude

Michael Jackson but I still like Paul McCartney. - cosmo

MJ easily.

2 Eminem or Tupac Shakur

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

Eminem. He speaks the truth and his lyrics are so inspirational.

Eminem, but both are great. - Brobusky

Both are good, but I’ll pick Tupac.

3 Guns N' Roses or Nirvana

That's a hard question. They are both incredible bands for sure. I have to go with Nirvana.

Great Bands But Nirvana For The Win - FettiMC

4 Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin

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

Pink Floyd did not constantly plagiarize. - DCfnaf

7 Eminem or Jay-Z

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.

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

Ozzy! /m/ - Brobusky
