Kiss vs the Dolls

Post by Heston » 01 Jan 2012, 1:58am

Hit me with your best shot.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I appreciate that the strategy here is to split what we'll call the "sane vote" between two options (presuming "Black Diamond" refers to the infinitely superior Replacements version), but I'm moderately confident that even in this scenario Kiss is gonna end up third.

Inder, please delete this thread. I am a drunken fool.

I mean, you know it's bad when I am going to vote against the band that has more Jews in it.

Hello,

I'm abstaining. They each have their place. KISS can be fun to watch and appreciate their excesses; quite a good laugh in an over the top/Spinal Tap way (plus I like fireworks) - the Dolls destroy and embody rock and roll during their high (no pun intended, Johnny) points. I like listening to them both - depending on my mood - seldom during the same evening/workout.

New York Dolls > Replacements > KISS

The Replacements' Black Diamond is probably better than KISS's best song. Likewise, anything the early Dolls ever did especially Frankenstein is better than KISS and the Mats on a bad night. Maybe even some of the newer Dolls stuff, like You Don't Have to Cry off the latest album which I really love.

So:

Dolls
The Replacements - Black Diamond



KISS

The race for second place is the most interesting thing about this poll.

I think IMCT should have a FAQ and every answer to any question should be a link to this poll.

I only know a little from both bands and both are alright.I choose Black Diamond.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
