    Supertramp vs ELO

    That is today's matchup. Both hugely popular 70's artists with many big hits regularly played on the radio to this day.

    This Poll is sponsored & brought to you by Leaping Larry's Used Stereo shop where the 70's never ended & 8-tracks are still new.

    ELO.

    Not even close.

    Are you fucking kidding....not even close my ass....

    Ever heard of a little album called BREAKFAST IN AMERICA....

    It had numerous big time hits...The Logical Song, Goodbye Stranger, etc, etc,

    When Noel Monk was offered VH a sponsership deal from Sparkomatic for the 1984 tour & VH passed they signed Supertramp. They were huge back in the early 80's. They played Empire Stadium here.

    It's a very close matchup. ELO also hugely prominent back then I think I read one of the most top 40 singles of any artist.

    It could go either way. It's a very even matchup.

    As much as I like ELO, I'd go with Supertramp.

    One is subjective, one is not. If you are more concerned about which band was bigger, there really is no need for the thread.

    I really like them both, but Breakfast In America is an iconic album.

    ELO is fucking awesome, love Jeff Lynne.

    ELO for the win!

    One of my fave tunes, since i was a wee child in the 70's.

    The way they combined cellos and rock, in this really badass way.
    The classical component made everything kinda dark & dramatic.
    Genius!

    Do you think Jeff Lynne liked the Beatles a little bit?
