Foo Fighters vs. Pearl Jam – Best Live Band, Round 2
If you want to "Learn to Fly" or are "Given to Fly," this Best Live Band Round 2 matchup is just for you.
After a decisive victory in Round 1 against Kid Rock, Foo Fighters are taking the next step toward a Best Live Band title. Led by "good guy" Dave Grohl and an extremely talented group of players, Foo Fighters have become one of hard rock's top live acts. Known for performing until they turn out the lights, Foo Fighters shows are essentially parties filled with well-known hit songs you can sing along to and awesome classic rock covers the group throws in to keep things fresh.
Pearl Jam, meanwhile, had a more difficult Round 1 matchup, edging out Red Hot Chili Peppers to advance. Since the early '90s, the band has amassed quite the musical catalog and manage to keep fans engaged with a mix of their biggest hits and an ever-changing infusion of deeper cuts and covers. Led by the engaging vocalist Eddie Vedder and featuring one of rock's tightest lineups in Jeff Ament, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Matt Cameron, Pearl Jam are also known for their epic performances and memorable onstage moments.
This should be a tough one as both acts have diehard fanbases who've come to give as much as they get at each band's epic shows. So let us know, who is the better live band? Vote for either Foo Fighters or Pearl Jam. You can do so once per hour through the deadline of Tuesday, July 21 at 10AM ET in the poll below.
