Ok the thing about music is that it is ALL subjective.
You can have a band that has had multiple platinum awards, grammys, and sold millions of albums, but if you don't personally like the sound of the band, then to you the band 'sucks.'
And vice versa, there could be a band that is terrible to most people, but others think they are the greatest thing ever, even over the above mentioned type of bands.
So this 'battle' is all subjective. Every person is going to have a different outcome on how it turns out.
That's why no one company is going to win the music game war.
Songs that are popping up in GH that some people hate, others are going to love, and the same goes for RB.
The best you can do in a 'battle' like this is state what you like and why, and that's about it.
I can declare what I PERSONALLY think are the winning tracks from each week, but that's only relevant to me, as another person will choose any number of different ways.
Hence the poll.
That way we can see what the majority thinks.
I'll post one of these on the GH forums as well in the sake of fairness.
Rock Band got :
Franz Ferdinand - Do you want to
Franz Ferdinand - Lucid Dreams
Franz Ferdinand - Take Me out
Alien Ant Farm - Smooth Criminal
Allman Bros - Blue Sky
Allman Bros - Midnight Rider
Distillers - Drain the Blood
Luscious Jackson - Naked Eye
Prong - Idealistic Types
Prong - The Banishment
GHWT got (all were free tracks):
Chimaira - On Broken Glass
The Devil Wears Prada - Dez Moines
Unearth - Grave of Opportunity
A lot of people are going to argue that GHWT wins this week because of free metal. That some how free is always better no matter what.
While I did like them, and thought they were really solid tracks, they couldn't stand up to the onslaught of awesome that Rock Band released this week.
I thought the Unearth song was the strongest of the batch, with TDWP coming in second, and Chimaira being the weakest link.
Rock Band on the other hand came out swinging with the ten shades of kick ass Franz Ferdinand pack, followed up with a kick to the teeth from Midnight Rider, then finished it off with the spinning uppercut that is Smooth Criminal.
It's now been scientifically proven that playing Smooth criminal on any instrument will make you a God Damned sexual tyrannosaurus.
That's not taking into account the five other solid tracks released as well. Prong's the Banishment is a standout track, and Blue Sky is a guitarists dream.
Rock band started May off swinging, and dominated this week.
