Friday Fun Thread!

It's been a long, difficult week. We need some fun! In that vein, here's a good one from Andy:
If you had a time machine - could go to any year and set up a battle of the bands between 2 groups which would they be and when?
Hoo, boy, but that's a loaded question, isn't it? I think what he's getting at is that you could pick Aerosmith from 1972 to go up against Limp Bizkit from 2004 as opposed to current-day Aerosmith, etc. Hell, putting 1978 Van Halen against 2012 Van Halen would be pretty damn interesting right there. Duke Ellington and his Orchestra from ~ 1940 vs. Mighty Mighty Bosstones circa 1999? Metallica 1984 vs. pretty much anything masquerading as current "heavy metal"?

What would your timeless matchup be?

That is all.

Bear Force One vs Nickelback

An Eddie Van Halen wannabe who looks like Michael J. Fox vs Chuck Berry's cousin. We could probably make a movie out of that plot.

Queensryche ca. 1988 vs. Queensryche ca. 2011.

Weer'd Beard said...

Pistolero, you beat me to it!

Tom Waits 1976 vs. Tom Waits 1999!

Or a fun one might be 1957 Jerry Lee Luis vs. Present Day Necromantix just to see what the Killer thinks of Psychobilly!

Or Maybe GG Allin vs. Lady Gaga just because she thinks she's "Edgy" but she ain't NOTHING but a bubblegummer!

Does it have to be rock?

My coworker had a good idea. Hank Williams III out of 2010 vs Hank Williams Sr. out of 1950.

It would be interesting to say the least.

Leningrad Cowboys and Europe. And I want to sit in the balcony with a good pellet rifle.

Flock of Seagulls vs. Phish!

GG Allen v. Westboro Baptist Church choir. :)

Metallica 1984 vs. pretty much anything masquerading as current "heavy metal"?

Oh, 1984 Metallica v. 2012 Metallica would be great, just to see Cliff Burton slap the shit out of two James Hetfields.

Pantera v. Poison.

Dream Theater v. Rush.

This is fun!

Pink Floyd around the time of The Wall ablbum vs. U2 from The Joshua Tree album.

I'll take the 99 Bosstones (oh Lord, how I love them) against The Clash and see who really rocks the casbah.

Not a battle of the bands, but I'd go back to Tuesday December 4, 1956 in the Sun Record Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.

Elvis Presley
Carl Perkins
Jerry Lee Lewis
Johnny Cash

Gershwin versys Mozart versus Beethoven.

The winner gets to fight Bonaducci for the title.

TheAxe said...

Wow Jay, didn't know I had a blog. I'm sticking with Aerosmith vs. Guns & Roses :) though it'd be cool to see old Journey vs. new Journey.

Shepherd K said...

Let's see here...

Steve Vai vs. Joe Satriani vs. Kirk Hammett vs. Dimebag Darrell.

Pantera ca. 1989 vs. everyone.

Dogpile on Lady Gaga

Madonna ca. 1986 vs. Lady Gaga ca. 2012
