    Default Women And Children First vs Back In Black, song for song ...

    The battle of 1980. Van Halen's 3rd album vs the biggest selling hard rock album of all-time. Just because ...

    And The Cradle Will Rock vs Hells Bells - Hells Bells
    Everybody Wants Some!! vs Shoot To Thrill - Everybody Wants Some!! (Although I love Shoot To Thrill)
    Fools vs What Do You Do For Money Honey - Fools
    Romeo Delight vs Given The Dog A Bone - Romeo Delight
    Tora! Tora! vs Let Me Put My Love Into You - Let Me Put My Love Into You
    Loss Of Control vs Back In Black - Loss Of Control (Not a big fan of Back In Black)
    Take Your Whiskey Home vs You Shook Me All Night Long - Take Your Whiskey Home (Seriously)
    Could This Be Magic? vs Have A Drink On Me - Have A Drink On Me (By a country mile)
    In A Simple Rhyme vs Shake A Leg - In A Simple Rhyme (Shake A Leg rocks, though)
    Growth vs Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution - Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution

    Women And Children First wins 6-4
    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you"

    "Be careful what you wish for because you just might lose what you already have"

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    And The Cradle Will Rock vs Hells Bells - Hells Bells (CLOSE)
    Everybody Wants Some!! vs Shoot To Thrill - Everybody Wants Some (Can't believe I am picking this one.)
    Fools vs What Do You Do For Money Honey - Fools
    Romeo Delight vs Given The Dog A Bone - Romeo Delight
    Tora! Tora! vs Let Me Put My Love Into You - Let Me Put My Love Into You
    Loss Of Control vs Back In Black - Back in Black (by a short hair)
    Take Your Whiskey Home vs You Shook Me All Night Long - Take Your Whiskey Home
    Could This Be Magic? vs Have A Drink On Me - Have A Drink On Me
    In A Simple Rhyme vs Shake A Leg - In A Simple Rhyme
    Growth vs Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution - Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution

    5-4-1 for Women and Children First. Overall, I think Back in Black was a more important album for AC/DC than Women and Children First was for Van Halen, as a band.

    I know it's personal preference but anyone not choosing Hells Bells, Shoot to Thrill, Back in Black and You Shook me All Night Long needs their head examining.


    Being a fan is one thing. Being a blinkered sycophant is another.

    a clean sweep for the DC, except for Simple Rhyme vs Shake A Leg VH wins that one.

    Fair Warning would pretty much wipe the board with For Those About To Rock, though

    Yeah I gotta go Back In Black for all the songs except Romeo Delight vs Given The Dog A Bone goes to VH

    And I'm not even a huge AC/DC fan, but that album is almost perfect. WACF is a bad one to put it up against for me because it's not one of my favorites.

    ...and because we're putting up Tora Tora and Growth as actual songs, for fuck's sake. Can't wait for DD vs. Physical Graffiti.

    Why is it always WACF?

    That album isn't even their best effort.

    Imo, any head-to-head matchup has to be VHI against (insert other band's best effort)...

    VHI is the "Big Bang".

    That will never work. Physical Graffiti has way more songs!

    Default Women And Children First vs Back In Black, song for song ...

    Back in Black over everything on WACF except for Romeo Delight. It's an amazing album guys. Overplayed yes. But BNB is a masterpiece of a record.

    Put VH 1 or Fair Warning up against it, that's a different story.

    And yes FW destroys For Those Who Like To Suck Cock.

    I'll take any Bon era album over BIB. Frankly, I'm surprised to see so many say it's a blowout over WACF. I could see a close battle, but seriously, only Romeo Delight getting a victory for some? EWS, Fools, LOC, IASR...lot of classic VH right there.

    Ah well, WACF tends to always be overlooked and underrated lol!

    I was typing but lost/erased my post! LOL.
    5-5 for both bands, using these two albums.

    Even tie for me, due to "Whiskey" and "Shook Me" being equally awesome in their own rights...
