    Default UNCHAINED VS. BARRACUDA

    Van Halens Unchained is lined up against Hearts Barracuda in round one of Ultimate Classic Rocks March Riff Madness competition.
    With much difficulty, we selected 32 of classic rocks most iconic riffs and paired them off in 16 first-round duels. Over the next five weeks the field will be repeatedly cut in half by your votes, until we theoretically arrive at the most awesome riff in all of rock history.
    As you can imagine, choosing just one Eddie Van Halen riff from his vast catalog was one of the hardest parts of this process. Ultimately, we went with this hard-charging, flanger-utilizing scorcher from 1981′s Fair Warning, which the group frequently uses to open their shows.
    Theyll be up against some fierce, sharp-toothed competition in the form of Hearts Barracuda, a hard charging riff that kicks off the groups beloved 1977 album Little Queen. (If you were wondering yes, a good portion of the office lobbied hard for Crazy on You to represent the Wilson sisters instead.)
    So which of these rock legends do you think deserves to move on? You can vote once per hour until round one of our March Riff Madness voting closes on Sunday, March 9 at 11:59PM ET. The ultimate winner will be revealed on April 7.

    I really like both bands and those two songs . "Unchained" for the epic win , at least to me ! Haha . Both have riffs that are ingrained in our psyche . Both have an undeniable flanger influence/effect . Great tunes .

    Unchained is THE greatest hard rock song of all time, by any band. That is all.

    That's the difference between sports and music: in music, no one needs to "win." They can both win, since they're both great riffs/songs.

    Totally agree with you !!!
    Now if we could just apply that logic to the lead singer debates ... Haha
