Haha.

I think Stairway to Heaven vs Bohemian Rhapsody would be a good battle. 


Yeah, I guess few songs stand a chance against Stairway to Heaven... well, at least as far as classic non-prog songs go. But Bohemian Rhapsody would be one of them.


I keep putting off doing my 3rd leg of my battle polls.. the battle of the prog song one (regardless if by 'prog' bands or not.. but both of those are to be in it.. and likely would meet due to the way I had the brackets set up.

I love Rush but Led Zeppelin are gods in my book, so "Stairway" got my vote. 

Led Zeppelin are #5 on my favorite artists list.  Rush could be as high as the 30s, but they wouldn't be higher than that (they'd definitely be in my top 100 though).

Xanadu.
Stairway's awesome (Heart's rendition at Kennedy Center Honors was amazing), but overplayed.

Stairway for me...........but then overall I like Zep more than Rush. Xanadu is a bit 'choppy' at times and imho STH flows better throughout the whole piece. Having said that I do like that Rush album.

Rush fan here and Xanadu is one of my favorite Rush tunes so that gets my vote.

Stairway is a classic and legendary song, no question at all but definitely overplayed and overexposed. I never need to hear it again.
