Top 10 Rock Band Showdowns

The Top Ten

1 Led Zeppelin vs Queen

Queen is far better than Led Zeppelin no doubt.

Queen is great but, come on it's zeppelin!

The winner is... Queen! - Metal_Treasure

I'd say Led Zeppelin, though those were simmilarly innovative bands in different areas of music. Queen is far more overrated though, so I'd go for the Zep. - Idontreallycaretoomuch

2 Iron Maiden vs Judas Priest

As my favourite band, I choose Maiden. Priest are also great. - IronSabbathPriest

Maiden is little better than Priest in my opinion. - palashgupta

good

3 Metallica vs Megadeth

Got to be a tie for me. - IronSabbathPriest

I prefer Metallica but it's a close battle. - Metal_Treasure

4 The Beatles vs The Rolling Stones

To me that's pretty easy. Admittedly, I don't know The Stones too well, but what I know sounds really unimaginative and lazy to me for the most part. I'd pick The Beatles every day. - Idontreallycaretoomuch

The Stones for the win! - Metal_Treasure

Two nice 60s rock bands. Both credited with inventing rock and roll! - IronSabbathPriest

5 Кино vs Nautilus Pompilius
6 Pink Floyd vs Rush

Pink Floyd are awesome! And so are Rush! - IronSabbathPriest

Pink Floyd is my number 1 band. - palashgupta

7 AC/DC vs Guns N' Roses

Hmm.. This is a tough one. - palashgupta

Now I'd like to see this battle! - IronSabbathPriest

8 Deep Purple vs AC/DC

I also say Deep Purple because 1) their musicianship is better and 2) they are more innovative, more creative.

But AC/DC are very cool, too. - Metal_Treasure

Both very popular bands. I say DP because AC/DC are quite overrated. - IronSabbathPriest

9 Nirvana vs Guns N Roses

Both bands are quite overrated but speaking of vocals Axl is better. Guns N' Roses also had better guitars.

On the other hand, Guns N' Roses had only one great album. And it was released long ago.

I don't know, it's either Guns N' Roses or a tie. - Metal_Treasure

Now, these two band's vocalists were rivals when Kurt was alive. - palashgupta

Guns N Roses (but I love Nirvana too)

Guns N' Roses - zxm

10 Linkin Park vs Evanescence

I'd probably go Linkin Park. Because again, I've heard more. - IronSabbathPriest

Linkin Park = Evanescence

No doubt, they are awesome. - 05yusuf09

Are the best bands in the world.

The Newcomers

? Pink Floyd vs Judas Priest
? Pink Floyd vs Black Sabbath

The Contenders

11 Black Sabbath vs Iron Maiden

This is easy - Iron Maiden. - Metal_Treasure

Lets see who wins. - palashgupta

12 King Crimson vs Genesis

I'd want Crimson to win because I only love the Peter Gabriel era of Genesis. - IronSabbathPriest

13 Dream Theater vs Helloween

DT for the win! Helloween are another awesome, underrated band. - IronSabbathPriest

Both are awesome in my opinion. However DT always bring something new to the table. Whilst Helloween haven't done anything amazing since Keeper Pt 2. - IronSabbathPriest

DT is one of my faourite bands. - palashgupta

14 Led Zeppelin vs The Who

Uh, that's an interesting one. Two of my favorite classic rock bands. I'd probably pick The Who, because of Tommy and Who's Next, but Led Zeppelin is also a powerhouse. - Idontreallycaretoomuch

15 Blind Guardian vs Helloween

Definitely Blind Guardian, taking into account all considerations and the evolution of both bands over time (as of 2016). Blind Guardian are the most consistent metal band of all time (even Iron Maiden and Judas Priest had some infamous episodes, not to mention Metallica and Megadeth). - Metal_Treasure

16 The Who vs The Rolling Stones
17 Queen vs The Beatles

People don't seriously have to think about this, do they? The Beatles, any day of the year. - Idontreallycaretoomuch

Queen any day - Metal_Treasure

The bratles

18 Pink Floyd vs King Crimson
19 Led Zeppelin vs Nirvana
20 Opeth vs Tool

I'd cheer on Opeth. They need more attention. - IronSabbathPriest

21 Genesis vs Yes
22 Nirvana vs Soundgarden
23 Nine Inch Nails vs Marilyn Manson

NIN

24 Porcupine Tree vs The Pineapple Thief
25 The Beatles vs The Doors
26 Агата Кристи vs Пикник
27 10cc vs Supertramp

Lol who tf is 10cc? And Supertramp is one of the best bands ever.

28 The Cure vs The Smiths
29 The Moody Blues vs Procol Harum
30 Linkin Park vs 5 Seconds of Summer

Witch idiot added this question?

31 Korn vs Limp Bizkit

They both suck equally.

32 Lacuna Coil vs Evanescence
33 Napalm Death vs Carcass
34 Death vs Possessed
35 Eloy vs Focus
36 The Rolling Stones vs The Beach Boys

No idea why this is on here and Beatles vs Beach Boys wasn't. I'd easily pick The Beach Boys here. - Idontreallycaretoomuch

37 ДДТ vs АлисА
38 Rush vs Camel
39 Electric Light Orchestra vs The Alan Parsons Project
40 King Crimson vs Queen
41 Linkin Park vs Queen
42 The Beatles vs The Beach Boys

A friendly rivalry that pushed music to limits never to be reached again. I'd vote for The Beach Boys. - Idontreallycaretoomuch

43 Led Zeppelin vs Deep Purple
44 Black Sabbath vs Judas Priest
45 Muse vs Radiohead
46 Real Estate vs Local Natives
47 Marillion vs IQ
48 Pink Floyd vs Dream Theater
