Battle of the bands

This time the battle is between two long time LA bands. Both had success in the 1980's and both are still going today. So it's:

Motley Crue vs. WASP

I will go with WASP for sure. I like the first two Crue albums and Dr. Feelgood is decent enough, but other than that they are just okay or worse. WASP are probably the opposite as most of their albums are very good (the debut, Inside the electric circus, the Neon God albums) or great (the Last Command, Headless Children, Crimson Idol and Unholy Terror). Only a few of their albums are sub-par (KFD and Helldorado come to mind). Blackie Lawless has made real effort over the years to grow as a songwriter and he has taken some chances, but that's what has made this band stand out.

Who do you pick?

It may be that Crue was more commercial but I prefer them. When I think of Wasp, I think of strange codpieces and the most awesome concert tee of all time. For the 'F*** Like A Beast' tour.

I would go with WASP. When Animal (F*ck Like a Beast) came out, my friends and I were like, "Holy crap! Who are these guys??" The first WASP LP is a classic. Filled with great shit.

I wasn't a huge WASP fan, mainly because I wasn't all that familiar with them(remember...I live in the black hole for metal music), but...
I know way too much about the Crue, so I'll choose WASP.

WASP, I wasn't a big fan at first, but after The Electric Circus Hit I was Hooked, I even like KFD and Helldorado, I thought they had a great sound, they both are in top rotation on the iPod
