I would probably say Aerosmith just because i have heard more of their songs. They were alright, nothing special, but kinda ok.

Aerosmith by far!

Why? Simple..

> They don't wear ridiculous clothes and make-up....
> Versatile, all Kiss songs sound the same to me.
> Steven has more range and is a better frontman.
> Great albums

Shit this one ain't even a contest.
That first one is so hard that I can't do it.

Aerosmith put out one of the best album + followup combinations of the 70's in Toys in the Attic and Rocks.
I don't really like them now. I much prefer their drug addled days.

Kiss on the other hand were clowns. I've never really liked their music. It always sounded sophmoric and bland to me.
Peter Criss is the biggest fraud drummer IMO.
He had this humungeous kit that was all for show.
His skills weren't much better than Ringo Starr IMO.

Aerosmith?? Kiss??? I don't know which one is worse... :)))

But ok... Aerosmith are kinda cool for doing a song with RUN-D.M.C., and Kiss look funny... so it's really hard to me for make up my mind... so... I vote... for Queen!

Aerosmith, but only because I haven't heard much from Kiss. Dream On, Janie's Got A Gun, Walk This Way and Mama Kin are all great songs.

kiss.....if your music is good enough you dont need 10000 gimmicks to grab attention, thats all i have to say.


like the beatles, queen, etc didn't all ahve gimmicks?

queen - the whole black/white imagery of the early albums, freddies (ahem) sexuality, the "blondes have more fun" drummer, the home made guitar, the hand claps in Ga-Ga, the break free vid, Freddie is actually quoted somewhere as saying "i'm a musical prostitute, my dear"

im talking about the millions of fireworks and lights and stuff. every band has good gimicks, but kiss got excessive, while queen focused on their music and audience interaction. not that kiss didnt interact, but my opinion is taht aerosmith is better. kiss just over did things. queen over did the right things i guess is what im saying..sry kiss fans!


you say kiss overdid the lights and stuff?
did YOU ever see queen live? the famous Pizza Oven stage rig, and what about the jubilee special from 77? where they had to remove part of the roof at earls court? oh yeah, and the 84 works tour - with moving cogs and metropolis backdrop. and lets not forget the magic lighting rig and the four oversized baloons....

all bands are the same - "the bigger the better, in everything" - that was FREDDIE'S saying

I don't like either of them. Also, These types of topics should be in the personal section.

Potentially, it could be hurting you. It doesn't happen often, But these trypes of things CAN lead to banning or deleted topics. Believe me, I wasn't trying to fight with you.

Aerosmith...

In terms of song craftmanship, lyrics, sex-appeal, etc... it goes to Aerosmith

however, you have to give it to kiss, they were marketing geniuses and made money on really basic rock and roll, with generic song structures, and a lot of makeup.

Dan-

I understand... if Richard wants to move it, he will..

Forum members love these type of polls, and the large number of replies in a very short period of time proves this.

If posting this question gets me banned, then I don't need to be here anyway :)

Cheers!
