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

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

The Stones for the win! - Metal_Treasure

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

5 Pink Floyd vs Rush

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

Pink Floyd is my number 1 band. - palashgupta

6 AC/DC vs Guns N' Roses

Hmm.. This is a tough one. - palashgupta

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

7 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

8 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

9 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.

10 Black Sabbath vs Iron Maiden V 2 Comments

The Contenders

11 King Crimson vs Genesis

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

12 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

13 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

14 Led Zeppelin vs The Who
15 The Who vs The Rolling Stones
16 Queen vs The Beatles V 1 Comment
17 Opeth vs Tool

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

18 Led Zeppelin vs Nirvana
19 Nirvana vs Soundgarden
20 Linkin Park vs 5 Seconds of Summer
