VS!!!Alpha101 I just thought it would be fun to do a vs. of many famous bands. Feeling will be hurt, so be warned. Also, if you want to add your own opinions, comment below. Let's get started.
The Beatles vs. The Rolling Stones
The Beatles - There's nothing new that I could say about this legendary group. Everything has already been said about how incredibly influential they were, and still are to this very day. John and Paul are considered to be two of the best singers in history, Harrison was a very important member, and who could forget Mr. Ringo Starr? While this band is close to perfect, there is one con about them: their lyrics. While they have many songs that have amazing lyrics, such as "A Day in the Life," "Strawberry Fields Forever," and "Eleanor Rigby," some of their writings are laughable, such as "She Loves You," "Help," and "That Boy." Do not get me wrong, all of these songs are fantastic, but even the biggest Beatles fan would admit that these lyrics are elementary.
The Rolling Stones - While Mick Jagger was not as a good singer as John or Paul, his vocals are still very impressive, and he does have one thing that the two lack: emotion. The Beatles do have some songs that are raw from emotion, but there are very few. It just sounds like the two were handed a piece of paper and asked to sing. Jagger's vocals in almost every song have so much emphasis and power put into them. Don't believe me? Listen to "Sympathy for the Devil," or "You Can't Always Get What You Want." But, like the Beatles, their con is pretty average lyrics in most of their songs. Notice that I said most, as some of their songs do carry meaning. While The Beatles matured over time and their songwriting improved, the Stones simply did not.
Winner: The Beatles
Led Zeppelin vs. Black Sabbath
Led Zeppelin - One of the most popular bands in the world, and for good reason. Plant's vocals are legendary, Page's guitar skills are hard to match, and Bonham, may he rest in peace, is considered to be one of the best drummers of his time. While some of their songs are beautiful, some are pretty much just average, such as "Black Dog," and "Rock and Roll." While these two songs are great, the lyrics are laughable. Also, Plant's voice, while one of the best in history, can be a little annoying and whiny.
Black Sabbath - Considered by many to be the best metal band of all time, Black Sabbath is one of the best bands to ever walk the planet. The lyrics are dark and gloomy, the riffs are memorable, and Ozzy's voice fits the band perfectly. While Ronnie James Dio is a much better singer than Ozzy, he pretty much ruined Sabbath. The whole purpose of Black Sabbath was to send shivers down you spine, but Dio didn't realize that. Then they got Osbourne back, but the magic was pretty much gone. Ozzy's voice, while not very good in the past, is even worse. If it was early Black Sabbath vs. Zeppelin, the winner would have been obvious, but the band did not stand the test of time.
Winner: Led Zeppelin
Nirvana vs. Alice in Chains
Nirvana - Every teenager knows who Nirvana is, for better or for worse. They've suddenly became one of the most talked about bands in history, even though they were, obviously, very popular in their prime. Cobain's songwriting skills are very good, but that's pretty much it. While he is a good singer, you couldn't really tell, as much screaming and wailing that he did live. Also, his guitar playing skills, while not bad, was nothing special. Don't get me wrong, I love Nirvana, but they are one of the most overrated bands in history.
Alice in Chains - Unlike Cobain, Staley had one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard in my life. His songwriting skills were also very good, but, unlike Nirvana, he proved that Alice in Chains could do soft better than Nirvana. Nirvana's unplugged session was great, but Chains' was legendary! Also, who could forget "Jar of Flies," one of the best things that happened to music ever? Either way, rest in peace to Cobain and Staley.
Winner: Alice in Chains
I know I missed a lot of bands, but I didn't want to take hours writing a little post. What do you think of my decisions? Thanks for reading!
Did you just steal my idea on Artist v Artist Arguments? Lol - visitor
I never read that. If I did copy, it was completely unintentional. I apologize. - Alpha101
Velitelcabel complaining about a stolen blog post series? haha! before you reply to this, get on with your rant series and music madness! - gemcloben
@gemcloben I know. I wasn't serious when I made that comment. And I didn't complain about it. Notice that I said "lol". And I acknowledge how my music madness and rage series were unoriginal at a considerable extent.
Plus, spell my username correctly.
@Alpha101 I haven't even started with it. It was just planned. I was just kinda paranoid of certain people calling the upcoming post unoriginal once it gets published. After all, we have been unoriginal at one point. - visitor
I see what you mean. Thought you were disturbed at my blog, as if I did copy you, I would have gladly taken it down. Thank you for being so nice about it. - Alpha101
I just had a concept. And three of my blog post series could be considered unoriginal. I just didn't want to have the reputation of having multiple unoriginal blog post series. - visitor
My blogs are 99% original, it's my strong point. But, doesn't mean they are good. - gemcloben
You've given me an idea for a new blog post series I may try out, but with albums or songs instead of artists. - visitor
It's everyone's own opinion who's better - bobbythebrony
Good post idea. The only thing that I think would make it far more popular is to allow members to vote and decide, then declare the results. But great idea, expressing your opinion - EvilAngel
This is prolly the shortest post title to be HQ. - Puga
Very good post. I would tie Sabbath and Zeppelin but I agree with everything else. - IronSabbathPriest
I agree that Alice in Chains is better than Nirvana though they both are great - bobbythebrony
Who>rolling stones - RecklessGreed
