Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Everlong!

The success of the one time Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as the frontman and guitarist of Foo Fighters seemed unthinkable back in 1994 but from then until now, he’s proved himself to be an inspiration millions in that capacity in his own right. There’s no doubt that him having been in Nirvana turned people’s heads

Vs Tuesday: One Song! Two Bands! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Midnight Oil.

Australian rock band Midnight Oil may have faced some adversity among critics from their formation in 1972 to 2002 they sold an incredible 12 million records, something which deserves attention. Indeed it took until 1987 and their sixth studio record “Diesel and Dust” before they acquired any form of critical acclaim. Recorded at Albert Studios,

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Feel The Darkness!

It’s time to return to Portland, Oregon’s Poison Idea, who have to be one of the most influential and underrated Hardcore Punk bands in the history of the genre. Inspired by Black Flag and Discharge and called “an ugly band for ugly people“, their 1990 third studio album “Feel The Darkness” is one that has been sighted

Vs Tuesday: One Song! Two Bands! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Black Hole Sun.

Who remembers cassette tape trading to check out new sounds back in the day? Someone once put a copy of “Superunknown” by Soundgarden back 1995 into these grubby paws in exchange for “Ride The Lightning” by Metallica and the rest is history. Arguably the finest 74 minutes the Seattle Washington Grunge band created, it spawned
