I really dig on these little comparison topics. The same name song one is always fun. Here we have two bands from entirely different genres with equally great songs. Which one do you enjoy more? Personally, I have to go with The Smashing Pumpkins on this one. As much as I dig on The Sex Pistols, the Pumpkins one just has a bit more substance to me. Granted that’s just my opinion though.
The Smashing Pumpkins- Bodies (from Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness):
The Sex Pistols- Bodies (from Nevermind The Bollocks…):
I love finding songs that have the same title as another band. It makes for a very interesting listening experience as well as makes you wonder which song is better. Over the years, there have been many many same name songs that have led to great conversations and this one I believe will do just that. Two very prolific bands, with two very well revered albums that both happen to have come out around the same time (at least a couple years close). The song in question today is “Drowning Man” and both The Cure and U2 have songs by that name. I’m curious to know what one you think is the “better” one. Personally I enjoy both tremendously but, if I had to pick one, I’d probably go with The Cure but, only my a small margin.
The Cure- Drowning Man (from Faith):
U2- Drowning Man (from War):
It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these so this one should be quite fun to see what you think. Two very different bands with the same name song. In one corner you have the great and highly influential Failure. And in the other corner you have Sweden’s Blindside. The song is entitled “Pitiful” and each band’s song is quite different from the others. Which one do you think is the best?
Failure- Pitiful (from Fantastic Planet):
Blindside- Pitiful (from Silence):
Two very different bands and both have a song entitled Dirt. This is going to be one of the most interesting same name song battles I’ve posted. I love both bands. Alice In Chains a bit more obviously but, there is no denying the impact The Stooges had on inspiring countless amounts of bands over the years, Alice In Chains included. The Stooges song dirt is off their album Fun House which I must add is one of the coolest albums ever! Alice In Chains song “Dirt” is from their masterpiece of a 2nd album of the same name. Both songs are so different but due to my love of Alice, I’m going to have to pick theirs but, The Stooges song is friggin great too.
Alice In Chains- Dirt (from Dirt):
The Stooges- Dirt (from Fun House):
I really enjoy doing these song battles. Getting to hear what song you think is best is always intriguing to me. Today I have a rather interesting song battle for you all. Both Nine Inch Nails and Pantera have songs called “Heresy” and both are extremely different. Personally I know which song I’d choose (I pick Nine Inch Nails) but, both are very good. Which one do you favor?
Nine Inch Nails- Heresy:
It’s been a minute since I last did a Song Battle. I have a long list of these to go through with some very interesting “battles.” Here is one of those interesting ones to contemplate. Failure versus Sex Pistols and their songs “Submission.” What band do you think wrote the better song?
Failure- Submission (from the album Comfort):
Sex Pistols- Submission (from the album Never Mind The Bollocks…):
I’m having a lot of fun doing these same name song battles. It’s been really cool to hear all the responses as to which song you all dig more. Yesterday, while I was stuck in traffic, 3 different songs entitled “Burn” came up on my iPod. Naturally, this was a sign that I should do a song battle for these great songs. I present to you three songs entitled “Burn” by The Cure, Neurosis, and Nine Inch Nails.
Which one do you think is best?
The Cure- Burn:
Nine Inch Nails- Burn:
This is going to be quite the interesting and fun Same Name Song Battle. In this new battle, I put the song “Mother” up for question. On one hand you have Danzig’s very classic song from his debut solo album. And the other you have Pink Floyd’s song from their seminal and very influential The Wall.
Whose song titled “Mother” is the best one?
Pink Floyd- Mother:
This feature is fast becoming a favorite of mine. Well all the features I do are favorites, some are just more fun than others. Today I present another song battle featuring Stone Temple Pilots vs 311 and their songs “Down.”
I go STP without question. There are some people that might/will pick 311. And that’s ok but, Stone Temple Pilots win this one hands down. And their video is better too!
Who do you think wrote the better “DOWN?”
Stone Temple Pilots- Down:
This is only the second time I’ve done this feature and I’m really enjoying it. The first one (Creep: Radiohead vs Stone Temple Pilots) was a sort of softball way to begin this but, now we start to really get into the thick of it.
Next up is Black Sabbath vs Nine Inch Nails and their songs “Into The Void.” Both are excellent songs and add so much to their respective albums (Master Of Reality and The Fragile).
Personally I would pick Nine Inch Nails to win. I just have a deeper connection to them than I do Black Sabbath.
Who wrote the better “Into The Void?”
Black Sabbath- Into The Void:
Nine Inch Nails- Into The Void:
