Iron Maiden have snapped Judas Priest's two-match Classic Cage Match win streak as the fans have voted 'Phantom of the Opera' the victor in he latest Classic Cage Match. The 1980 classic from the band's self-titled debut disc is filled with plenty of riffing and a frenetic drumbeat that's perfect to bang your head to. But does Maiden's 'Phantom of the Opera' have what it takes to continue their Classic Cage Match run?
Judas Priest have made it two-for-two in their Classic Cage Match competitions. The band's 1980 single, 'Breaking the Law,' just took out Ozzy Osbourne's 'Crazy Train' to see another Classic Cage Match day. The song, with its driving guitar and in-your-face Rob Halford vocals, has become a metal staple over the years and will now move on to face another standout track from 1980.
First off, congrats to Korn, as their song 'Spike in My Veins' just earned its fifth consecutive victory in the Cage Match to land it in the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With the song retiring from competition, that means we have two new hard rocking heavyweights ready to enter the battle.
Congrats to Korn, who saved their best for last en route to joining the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. The band's song 'Spike in My Veins' earned its most decisive victory in its final matchup against Escape the Fate's 'One for the Money' to become the latest Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame inductee.
It was a tight battle, but Judas Priest's 'Breaking the Law' emerged victorious over the returning champ, Motorhead's 'Ace of Spades,' in the latest Classic Cage Match. The hard-driving riffs of the 1980 classic alongside Rob Halford's very distinctive vocals have made 'Breaking the Law' a metal anthem over the years. But how will the song do against another '80s metal powerhouse?
Korn have bested four prior opponents with their current single 'Spike in My Veins,' but do they have what it takes to complete their run to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame? The hard-rocking track has been a favorite of fans so far, but they advanced with the narrowest of escapes over Avenged Sevenfold's 'Shepherd of Fire.'
Motorhead are moving on, claiming victory over AC/DC in the last Classic Cage Match. The band's 1980 anthem 'Ace of Spades' emerged victorious, besting 'Back in Black' in a match-up of iconic rock songs. But do Lemmy and crew have what it takes to keep their Classic Cage Match streak alive?
Korn's Cage Match win streak has hit three and the band is just two victories away from making the Cage Match Hall of Fame with their latest single, 'Spike in My Veins.' The band bested Linkin Park's 'Guilty All the Same' in their most recent match-up and the hard-hitting, thought-provoking song will now move on to face a new opponent.
Congrats are in order for Motley Crue's 'Wild Side,' which has now been officially retired after reaching the Loudwire Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame with five straight victories. With their run through 1987 complete, we now move on to two other well known bands and another year -- 1980.
