    You Must Pick One: Music Edition

    The music version of this seemed to work best on the last board, so I'm starting it up again. Though I don't see where there can't be a version in every bit of the board to be honest.

    Anyway, one to get us started. You must pick one: Rap or Rock?

    Rock, better diversity in styles.

    Backstreet Boys or N'Sync?

    N'Sync, because I only know Justin Timberlake.

    Drake or Nickelback

    Ugh... Drake doesnít completely suck with everything he does, so he wins by default.

    David Bowie or Queen?

    David Bowie. Queen are OK, although I wouldn't even download their stuff. Bowie is just a pop hit machine though.

    Skynyrd or Zeppelin?

    Zeppelin a thousand times.

    It is entirely possible that is because I just haven't listened to that much Skynard but what I have heard hasn't made me want to mine the deep recesses of his discography.

    John Bonham or Keith Moon?

    ^ yeah, agreed. I like them both, but Zep are a hugely important band in rock history, and the other are a group I like.

    I'll take Bonham, I think.

    Roger Daltrey or Robert Plant?

    Plant. The only The Who song I can specifically pick out is the one that plays on whatever cop show used to come out. I obviously know their contributions to rock music, but... yeah. I can pick out Plantís voice in a second and know itís him.

    Tupac or Biggie?

    Catchy 22... Beatles have better music, but the Stones and their live act have stood the test of time. Iíll defer this one.

    Tupac in every single category judging rappers. By a mile!

    Stones. Of course.

    Insane Clown Posse or the Misfits (WCW edition)

    Clapton all day, everyday. Nirvana is THE most overrated band of all time. They are only considered "the Best" bc they came out first and Cobain killed himself. Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam are all from the same time, and all much, much better.


    Master of Puppets or (Welcome Home) Sanitarium

    I love both those tracks loads Master is faster, but Sanitarium really drags you into the slow brooding and fast paced finish.. I'm gonna have to go with (Welcome Home) Sanitarium just because I'm pissed off I can't play Puppets on guitar. It could have been either though.

    Also, I agree Clapton's is far superior. The musicianship and general plying is way way better. The vocals I admit I prefer Kurt's but he just can't play guitar worth a damn. I pretty much loathe Teen Spirit but there's loads of Nirvana songs I still enjoy. I don't really dig Soundgarden (sorry Chris Cornell) but the others you mentioned I agree are better than Nirvana

    Stone Sour or Slipknot?

    Toughie, but it all depends on moods. But if I had to pick, which is the point of the game, then Slipknot. They just rock out hard and get you pumped. Stone Sour are great, but some songs are too self indulgent.

    I just went to see the live show at Jones BeCh...so...

    Shinedown or Godsmack?

    Lesser of the two evils... Godsmack. They at least actually had a pretty cool song about snakes or something.

    A bit of a stretch... Johnny Cashís original songs or the covers of songs he started
    just before he died.

    Originals. There's a reason pub-rock bands that only do covers don't go anywhere. You need to have song writing skills.

    Glam Rock or Grunge?? (I've been listening to Motley Crues greatest hits recently)

    Grunge definitely.

    In uni I had a friend I ran a late night rock show with on the uni radio and he loved that 80s hair metal /glam rock stuff. We would have huge arguments on air about that kind of topic.

    Esrly 00s Garage Rock or Britpop?

    I like the old-timey version. The Specials, Selector, stuff like that.

    The 1960s

    or

    The 1970s?!

    Korn but I admit bizkit are actually OK. Ever since Eminem completely buried Fred durst everyone just likes to say they suck.

    Slayer or megadeth?

    Powder, don't put your own options in! The point of pick one is that you pick one!

    Megadeth

    Repeating from above.

    The 60s as a whole or the 70s?

    Man that's tough but I'm gonna go with 70s for most of Skynyrds stuff and the best Pink Floyd albums (some of them at least).

    Speaking of 60s, I only very recently discovered I prefer the Stones to the Beatles. That's another reason I chose 70s as I prefer Lennon's solo stuff I think.

    Also, I think I prefer Slayer to Megadeth. The solos are impossibly fast in Slayer and 'Deth was too influenced by jazz for my liking. Slayer just didn't appear to give a shit and just played as fast as possible.

    Anyway, David Gilmore or Roger Walters?

    Waters. Gilmore had a much better voice and was an underappreciated guitar player so I like him a lot. But you've got to go with the band's main creative force. And as much as I like Division Bell and Momentary Lapse of Reason, they were never quite the same without Waters, plus a lot of his solo stuff was far more urgent than the 'nice' Floyd that came at the end.

    Tom Petty or Bruce Springsteen?

    Petty. Bruce is sooooo overrated. He is treated like a god, when he is just ok. Petty has been a consistent driving force of good music and Bruce and be way too self indulgent.


    Christina or Brittany? Seriously.

    Christiana. I'm sure they are both good singers but Christina is jaw droppingly good. Check this cover of James Brown out for an example:


    I would also say she developed musically more than Brittney, going to more complex songs, including going to a more big band feel in the late 00s which I loved whereas Brittney has always just been pure pop.

    Also there was that Dirty clip that I liked a bit as a teenager.

    Keeping with the pop theme:

    Taylor Swift or Katy Perry

    Katy Perry on both accounts.


    Michael Jackson solo or Jackson 5?

    Jackson solo, I only know a handful of his songs and know virtually nothing about Jackson 5.

    Van Halen or Yngwie Malmsteen?

    Musically/musicianship Malmsteen. Better music, Van Halen by a mile.


    Sabbath or Zeppelin

    Black Sabbath all day every day. Not a big Zepplin fan.

    Punk or Grunge? (they're kinda similar in a lot of respects)

    Unforgiven. A three year old could play the intro to nothing else matters, and probably often do by mistake.

    Speaking of Metallica, Orion or To Live is to Die??

    Orion.

    Staying with Metallica, better album cut?

    Eye of the Beholder or The Thing That Should Not Be?

    It's funny you mention the thing that should not be, as it's my least favorite from Puppetz easily. I often just skip that track, not all the time, it's still pretty good just probably the worse on the album IMO. So, Eye of the beholder.

    Jimi "GAWD" Hendrix or Bob Dylan?

    I think it's funny about subjectivity. I think The Thing That Should Not Be is one of Metallica's better songs. Like in the top 15-20.

    And Hendrix over Dylan.

    Speaking of "God"...

    Clapton or Mick Floey...lol

    Seriously Clapton or Vaughn?

    Clapton on both counts.

    Now to two of the guys that are just that tier below Hendrix:
    Jimmy Page or Eric Clapton?

    Oooh, tough one. Although I think I like Page's legato style more than some of the stuff you get out of Clapton, I think Eric just plays with that bit more feel, and he can do more with less. Listening to what he plays in the piano section of Layla, or some of the things he does on Waters' Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking album - I'm not sure Page has that in his locker.

    As they both made the top 20 in a top 100 influential guitarists list a few years back, John Frusciante or Jack White?

    I think that Page gets to much love. Clapton is so far beyond Page, besides, just go to YouTube and search for all of the LED Zeppelin stolen music, and you will see how much music That Page gets credit for, that he did not write or create.

    Is neither an option? But if. Had to pick, Frusciante. I just do not get White.

    Better movie soundtrack: High Fidelity or Singles?

    You love asking that one, it's like the fourth time.

    I'll let someone else answer this time!
