BOTB: Queen vs. Blue Oyster Cult--Queen Wins!

Postby VaderFin » Mon May 22, 2006 7:45 pm

Opening Round Match Up featuring #8 seed Queen vs. #57 seed Blue Oyster Cult. Two classic rock artists, one much more known then the other, battling it out. Voting ends Tues. at 8pm EST.

Queen

Queen were pioneers of glam rock/arena rock, Queen began in the early 70s in England. Queen was fronted by Freddie Mercury from 1970 until his death in 1991. Mercury’s death due to AIDS helped raise awareness worldwide. Mercury had a distinctive and unique voice capable of spanning several octaves. Perhaps the most famous Queen song is “Bohemian Rhapsody”, and much of its popularity with younger generations is due to a scene in the movie Wayne’s World. Hit songs include "Another One Bites The Dust", "We Are The Champions", "Fat Bottomed Girls" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love".

Blue Oyster Cult

Blue Öyster Cult is an American psychedelic/heavy metal band formed in the late 1960s and active as of 2006. They are probably best known for two songs: their 1976 single "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" from the album Agents of Fortune (featured in the cult movie Halloween and in the TV movie The Stand based on Stephen King's novel of the same name), and their 1981 single "Burnin' for You" from the album Fire of Unknown Origin. Their song "Veteran of the Psychic Wars," with lyrics penned by Author Michael Moorcock, appeared in the soundtrack of the movie Heavy Metal. Two other well-known songs are "Godzilla" (1977) from Spectres, and "Astronomy" (1974) from Secret Treaties; the latter was covered by Metallica on 1998's Garage Inc..

Queen in what should be a huge landslide. BOC was a good band, but when you have a talent like Freddy Mercury singing in a rock band, that alone should propel these guys into the Sweet Sixteen.

I like BOC much more than Queen but you have to give credit where credit is due. Queen was much more popular and had more radio hits than BOC. I would agree to expect Queen to win in a landslide.

I really, really like Blue Oyster Cult. They stand no chance as only us old timers probably even know who they are. I'll vote for Queen but it was closer for me then probably most.

I'm on board as BOC being severely underated.
Too bad they came up against Queen.
It pains me to help knock BOC out, but Queen were brilliant, and in the end, this was an easy call.


But, in tribute

Go go godzilla, yeah
Oh no, there goes tokyo
Go go godzilla, yeah

Fun stuff.

But we still go with Queen. :-b

Went with Blue Oyster Cult. And yes, I'm voting for whichever band I like better....not which band I think meant more to the history of music.
