    Default On Fire vs. House Of Pain

    These two lets face it, are more music than vocal, having said that I would say House Of Pain buy a Solar System based on the guitar playing alone, from the squeals he is pulling off in the solo, to when Ed and Al seem at one during the versus with the way Ed plays with Al's rolls and especially after the solo when the tune breaks down and totally shifts gears, the fade out playing is incredible. Not to mention his tone on this album.

    Good one. Both showcase ol' shreddy eddy.

    But I'm a longtime banner waver for On Fire.

    I love House of Pain, but NOT the album version! You gotta spend some time with the '76 demo version. Pretty HEAVY stuff when Dave belts out his best "Death Metal" P-A-I-N at the end of the chorus.

    This is a tough one. I'm gonna have to go with On Fire by a very slim margin.

    I've always been really into On Fire. That being said, House of Pain is okay on 1984, but I think it kicks ass on the Gene Simmons Demo. But when comparing the officially released versions of the song, I definitely have to go with On Fire!

    House Of Pain because of the awesome ending. I like the demo version better than the version on 1984 though.
