Sort of similar lile the Kinks vs the Killers, bands that resonate to different generations of youth. The baby boomers vs milenials. Arena rock pioneers vs the largest arena rock of to date. Anthemic bands that speaks to the youth culture.

I predict a landslide but maybe the Kings will crown some votes.

Even by modern standards I find the KOL very soporific.

Voted for The Who.

The Who for sure. I don’t own any albums of theirs anymore, but at least they have talent.
I leave Kings of whatever for the dumpster truck. They are as bad as Imagine Dragons......to say I dislike them with a passion is putting it mildly....

They're one of those rock bands, for people who don't like rock. Like U2 or Coldplay.

When I was in Australia, I remember a friend insisting I listen, and it was awful, but I LOVE The Who.

May as well put a junior high school girls basketball team up against the Golden State Warriors.

U2 were tolerable in their early days...... the others I wouldn’t piss on if they were on fire.

If dragons were real, they would be ashamed to be assiated with Imagine Dragons

Yeah, that's true. From the debut up to and including Unforgettable Fire they were pretty good, after that they vanished up their own &rses for good. I can't stand Bono.

Bono’s head expanded to a ridiculous size real quick. By the time that ‘larger-than-life’ Joshua Tree rolled around they lost it big-time. Sorry Eno, you didn’t nurture this one, you nuetered it.
