Two more votes for The Who, which means they are widening the gap between them and The Doors! (o.O)

I think this battle will be one decided with a 10 vote maximum soon... but for now the score is set at:
_____________________________________

7 - THE WHO
-VS-
1 - THE DOORS

_____________________________________

Let's see if The Who is able to grab those 3 more votes before The Doors decide it's enough and pick up their arms to miraculously close the gap!

You decide people! Keep those votes coming!! =D

It doesn't look like there is any further interest for this battle, and there simply aren't enough people interested in this thread for The Doors to clench a lead at this point... perhaps it's time to post a new battle?

The Who are one of the greatest bands to walk the face of the earth. Comparing them to The Doors is an insult to rock and roll. I'm a lover of '60s rock and I don't happen to think that The Doors are that great a band. Jim Morrison died young while they were still famous, and now they're legends because of that.

If you're going to compare a fantastic band like The Who with someone worthy of comparison, I'd recommend you go with The Beatles or The Rolling Stones. Even Led Zeppelin would be a far more worthy opponent than The Doors.

This battle has been dragged long enough, so we'll close it and move on to the next one! ;)

First a final score roundup for the current battle:
__________________________________________________

8 - THE WHO - WINNER!
-VS-
1 - THE DOORS
__________________________________________________

Even though The Who didn't make it to a 10 vote sweep, they did show 'who' was the best of the two and showed the Doors, the door! LOL XD

Allright, next battle please! =)

Even though Armpit didn't post in on my profile or directly suggested the battle, I'll pick it up and post it here to see what the battle will turn out to be! So thank you for the battle suggestion Armpit! =)

You can't be serious!? The Rolling Stones will never lose this battle! I gotta vote for The Rolling Stones, hands down.

Ha, i have to agree with TennesseBoy.
I love the Who, got a lot of love for them, but the Rolling Stones win, hands down. Their music is better, more enjoyable to listen to. The band itself is just..cooler.

Vote +1 for Rolling Stones.

The Who is great, upbeat, melodic band, but TRS usually have far more thought-provoking, deep lyrics. Overall, The Stones get the vote, but I'd rather listen to Baba O'Riley anyday. That was way ahead of their time.

I don't know what it is about The Who, and although I do love me some Stones, The Who might just be my favorite all-around group from before the 80s! I can't explain what I love about them... maybe just because I heard them a lot during my childhood... but they truly are a great band and I love everything they've ever done!

First batch of votes is in and since waluigi is busy at the moment, I'll state the first score roundup for this 'Battle of Britain' then! Let's see what it says :
__________________________________________________

1 - THE WHO
-VS-
2 - THE ROLLING STONES

__________________________________________________

It looks like the Rolling Stones have a 1 vote lead over The Who right now, so anything can happen! =)

@ TennesseeBoy : Sorry, but there's no reasoning to your vote other than that you feel like the Rolling Stones will win this battle hands down... please state one and I will expand their lead with 3 votes to 1 for you! Thanx! ;)

Let's keep these votes coming people, because only 4 people entering a vote over the course of 4 days is a little thin and feels like this thread isn't getting the attention it deserves! =/

So... VOTERS WANTED!!! =D

Incoming vote...

This is a tough choice for me. Both are great bands, but I guess it's all a matter of personal taste.

To be honest, I haven't listened to many songs by The Who. A pity, I know, but this is going to change from now on. One of the most relevant aspect in their music is the melody. Their songs are incredibly catchy and I just want to turn the volume up and get lost in the song. For me, this is something that current music lacks.

On the other hand, The Rolling Stones are an iconic band with such a flamboyant front man. Who on his right mind would come up on stage dressed in a pink suit? The one and only Mick Jagger, a great singer also. I think I need to listen to their songs more than a few times to fully enjoy them, which is actually something good because you can always find something new every time you listen to a song. Besides, this band was part of my childhood and their songs were constantly played in my house, though I wasn't really interested in them back then. However, their songs bring me such good memories...

For the first time, my vote is based on that nostalgic feeling, instead of the musical aspect. My vote goes to The Rolling Stones
