Hey Ernie... what about a follow-up battle between AC/DC -vs- Airbourne? They have similar sound, style and rhythem! I'll even make you a poster if you want... =)

AC/DC for sure. Their music pumps you up a lot more than Aerosmith's. I agree that they are a lot more memorable; they've written more famous songs than Aerosmith has.

AC/DC is certainly better. Stephen Tyler is a joke that need to grow up already.

Both are great bands, but I love how AC/DC have largely kept to their timeless formula, and not tinkered with mass appeal music like Aerosmith. I do dig some of Tyler's new stuff, but I'd always back the band that stayed true and blue to its roots.

I just love AC/DC because their hit "TNT". I'm still not sick of that song.

Well, that was certainly a blowout.

AC/DC - 12
Aerosmith - 3

Poor Aerosmith only got 20% of the vote. 20% of the love. In an elevator.

Hey Ernie... what about a follow-up battle between AC/DC -vs- Airbourne?


I'll do that battle very soon, but first I'm going to post at least one more in between to keep things diverse for variety's sake. I'm paranoid that a bunch of AC/DC fans will be tempted to copy and paste their vote from last round without even listening to Airbourne if two battles with the same band occur twice in a row. Good thing I have my aluminum foil hat.

Speaking of things made of metal, or rather bands that were influential on the development of early metal music, we're going to take a trip back to the 1960's/early 70's.

The Kinks

Gimme votes. I'm tired of waiting for you to vote.

There's no easy way of explaining why I like the Kinks better, but I do think they sound more organized than the Stooges. Some people might like that less-organized sound of the Stooges, but I prefer the Kinks and their orderliness.

Meh, neither do much for me. Based on example songs, Kinks are slightly better.

For the next battle, could we have Queens of the Stone Age vs Smashing Pumpkins or Manic Street Preachers vs The Smiths?
