    Cheap Trick vs. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - yikes - going to go with Cheap Trick as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers more recent records just don't have that "sound" that was there in the early to mid days
    Genesis vs. Yes - have more Yes albums than I used to but I still think I prefer Genesis
    INXS vs. REO Speedwagon - INXS
    Peter Frampton vs. Rod Stewart - Frampton

    Duran Duran vs. Styx - don't own any proper albums by either but I'll go with Styx
    Foreigner vs. the Ramones - omg. I feel dirty, but I'm going with Foreigner
    The Doors vs. Pearl Jam - don't own any songs by either (well, not performed by either) but I'll go with Pearl Jam
    Billy Idol vs. Steve Miller Band - Idol

    The Scorpions vs. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - Bruce
    Men At Work vs. Dire Straits - Dire Straits
    The Doobie Brothers vs. Heart - The Doobie Brothers
    Joan Jett and the Blackhearts vs. Pat Benatar - probably Benatar

    The Cars vs. The Police -can I switch the Police for Pearl Jam and then vote for the Cars, too? No? Ok, the Cars because when they reunited they actually gave us an album!
    Prince vs. The Allman Brothers - ice cream or bacon? hmm - gotta go with the Brothers I think
    The Kinks vs. The Pretenders - Pretenders
    Lynyrd Skynyrd vs. Credence Clearwater Revival - Lynyrd Skynyrd

    Technically the Police ponied up a live album re: the reunion. Certifiable. Itís live, but in its defense, I think itís one of the best live records of all time.
