BORB FINALS!!! - AC/DC vs. Nirvana

Well, here it is. The no-doubt long anticipated Battle of the Rock Bands Finals. To view the bracket, just click [url=http://www.bracketmaker.com/tmenu.cfm?tid=100517&tclass=Battle%20of%20the%20Modern%20Rock%20Bands]
here[/url]

Representing the 80's, we have AC/DC.

After easily defeating Iron Maiden in the first round, the boys from AC/DC went on to face Def Leppard. This appeared to be a good matchup, but AC/DC took it easily, 25-4. They then moved on to the finals of the 80s bracket, and faced Guns N Roses, and what a matchup it was. It couldn't be settled in regulation, and not even a single overtime. Two overtimes were needed, but eventually AC/DC emerged from the mess, as more AC/DC fans showed up at the polls, and became the champion of 80s rock bands.


And from the 90s side, we have Nirvana
Image
Nirvana might have had an easier semifinal matchup, but they definitely had a harder time getting to those semi-finals. In the first round, they faced Green Day, and that matchup turned out to be suprisingly close. Nirvana did pull it out, winning 14-10. Then came one of the best matchups in the tourney, Nirvana vs. the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Many were disappointed with RHCP's unfortunate seeding, and just couldn't vote for them over the powerhouse that is Nirvana. The RHCP still recieved their fair share of votes, but Nirvana narrowly escaped, 16-15. Nirvana then moved on to face the Smashing Pumpkins in the finals, which turned out to be a disappointing matchup. Nirvana easily one, 19-6, and now they are here, in the finals.

Get your votes in! The poll is only open for three days, so don't delay! ;-D

I really like Nirvana's music and they introduced a new genre into music.

AC/DC though is a band I've been listening to since the mid to late 70s. And if I want to get the blood flowing they have some of the best songs ever for that.

Dirty Deeds, Highway to Hell, Back in Black, Long way to the Top, Hells Bells, and For Those About to Rock just to name a few. I could go on and on.

Long live the short, bald school boy. Angus!!!

Now that ACDC finally beat GNR, I don't really forsee a problem with this matchup. ACDC all the way...

Nirvana is great, but still... ACDC is ACDC. And nothing beats ACDC (though Led Zep givs them a serious run for their money). Kobain, if you hadn't been with that smelly pirate hooker and supposedly blown your head off (she had him killed, I stand by it), you might have stayed around long enough to beat ACDC. But I doubt it.

If I had 2 CD's in front of me: The very best of AC/DC and the very best of Nirvana, I would first reach for AC/DC.

Of all the 80's and 90's bands, my personal favorite would be The Police. Their early stuff(technically 70's) is some of my favorite to listen to.

Maybe I'm just being a homer because they were essentially my generations anthem, but I think Nirvana gets my vote.

AC/DC certainly has longevity, but it's a bit unfair to use when someone dies prematurely. Early deaths dont diminish classics like Hendrix, Jim Morrison, or Janis Joplin, so I can't count that against Nirvana.

AC/DC had more hits, however Nirvana changed the entire music scene. They brought about entire new genre, whereas AC/DC, as great as they are, never deviated from the rock standards set before them.

Comes down to, if in a 100 years a brief history of rock were being written in a book, Nirvana would be mentioned before AC/DC would.

You have a point but remember AC/DC's lead singer died too. They in essence overcame that to rise again. So longevity can be considered a factor, and their continued success is further testament to their greatness.

AC/DC's train was derailed when Bon Scott died on February 20, 1980. The official coroner's report stated he had "drunk himself to death."

Nirvana may have introduced a genre.. but it was one for wrist-slitters and socialists living in their parents basement thinking the world is against them. Completely overrated band. AC/DC may be overrated too (Cowboysfan thinking they're better than Zep, wtf?), but at least I'll willingly listen to some of their songs.. which is more than I can say for the competition.
