Buckcherry vs. Marilyn Manson – Classic Cage Match
Buckcherry are on a roll, having earned their second consecutive Classic Cage Match victory with the 1999 single ‘Lit Up.’ With just shy of 55 percent of the vote, Josh Todd, Keith Nelson and the crew emerged over Kid Rock’s ‘Bawitdaba.’ But will the band’s unabashedly brash rocker continue its Classic Cage Match hot streak?
Entering the Cage is another 1999 hit — Marilyn Manson‘s ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me).’ The second single from Manson’s ‘Mechanical Animals’ album is an infectious rocker that shows off some of the musician’s glam stomp. The song is also notable for its guest guitar solo by Dave Navarro.
So which 1999 ode to being chemically enhanced will you choose to advance? Will it be the strung out energy of Buckcherry’s ‘Lit Up’ or Marilyn Manson’s chugging rocker ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs.’ Listen to both songs and then vote for your favorite in the poll below.
(This Classic Cage Match will run until Friday, July 11, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
