Reasons Metallica is Better Than AC/DCCostcoHotDogs I think AC/DC is just ok, I don’t understand why they’re considered one of the best bands of all time.
Metallica is WAAAAY better in my opinion.
The Top Ten
I don't think Metallica is better, but I must say that this comparison list is actually solid. - DCfnaf
This is a good list but it all comes down to personal preference: hard rock vs thrash metal. Thrash is too heavy for most people. - SoldierOfFortune
AC/DC are very generic - _Jack_
They do. There’s the first four albums, and the 90s albums which sound different, and they have different types of songs. AC/DC just reuses the same format over and over again. Just simple rock. They have absolutely no variety in their sound and they never experiment. - CostcoHotDogs
You'll find loads of comments of me bashing James' voice on this site. God, I was ignorant. Metallica aren't my favourite band but he has one of the most expressive voices in metal. - IronSabbathPriest
Ooh, James is also a lot better guitarist than Angus. He also drums good. Or can play keyboards too. He alone can take over three members of AC/DC out there. - zxm
Bon Scott and Brian Johnson are good vocalists. Hey have very scratchy and unpleasant voices. James Hetfield has a harsh voice, but he also is a better vocalist. - CostcoHotDogs
That's subjective, you want objective reasoning so your list is solid - _Jack_V 1 Comment
Not better guitar that's subjective. More skilled guitar yes - _Jack_
James and Kirk are better than Angus and Malcolm, and Dave Mustaine, even though he was only in Metallica for a year, is better than all of AC/DC’s guitarists as well. Metallica has way more variety in their riffs, and all of the guitarists have written riffs. Malcolm writes all of AC/DC’s riffs, and he can also play them better than Angus, but he just doesn’t. - CostcoHotDogs
Lars is a horrible drummer live now, even though he’s still great in the studio. What does it tell you when the only advantage they have is the drummer? - CostcoHotDogs
True - _Jack_
AC/DC just sings about rock. And rock. And rock. That’s pretty much all they sing about.
What’s better? A song about a soldier who had his limbs and face blown off in WWI and lost his senses of sight and hearing and is in a coma and is trapped inside their mind and wants nothing more than to die or ROCK ROCK ROCK ROCK ROCK?
An outlaw who lost someone they care about and searches for a replacement but can’t find one or ROCK ROCK ROCK?
A song about suicide or ROOOOOOOCK? - CostcoHotDogs
Which has a better riff? Back In Black or Master Of Puppets? MASTER. - CostcoHotDogs
Ac/dcs are repetivie and similar - Lucretia
Objective reasoning remember? This is subjective - _Jack_
Live they’re not better, but studio wise they are more than better. - CostcoHotDogs
True... theirs nothing notable about AC/DC bass. Their Cliff Burton stuff is the best... - Lucretia
All of the bassists Metallica has had are better than any of the ones AC/DC has had. - CostcoHotDogs
They still have better live shows, even though Lars is a massive screw up. - CostcoHotDogs
Racist. - Lucretia
CAN SOMEBODY REMOVE THIS PLEASE - CostcoHotDogs
Racist. (3) - CostcoHotDogs
People this item is not racist it's just irrelevant to the point of this list. - SteelCity99V 2 Comments
