Guns N’ Roses vs. Motley Crue – Classic Cage Match
The Classic Cage Match starts fresh with two new competitors this week after Disturbed completed a five-match run to the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame with their song ‘Stupify.’ Now, we’ve got two powerhouse tracks from 1987 stepping into the Classic Cage Match.
In one corner, we’ve got Guns N’ Roses and their breakout single, ‘Welcome to the Jungle.’ In 1987, there was no escaping the song with Slash’s familiar opening guitar riff, Steven Adler’s drumming build and Axl Rose’s powerful scream. It was the first of many great Guns N’ Roses to come and has earned a spot as one of rock’s classic tracks.
In the other corner, we’ve got another band who was rocketing towards the heights of their fame as 1987 arrived. Motley Crue were riding the wave of their ‘Girls Girls Girls’ album when the adrenaline filled ‘Wild Side’ hit the airwaves. Much like, ‘Jungle,’ it too has an instantly recognizable guitar riff and ‘Wild Side’ has gone on to become one of Motley Crue’s most beloved tracks, both on record and in the concert arena.
It’s a powerhouse matchup of two 1987 heavyweights. Who will win? That’s up to you. Turn it up and rock out Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ and Motley Crue’s ‘Wild Side’ in the players below. Then vote for which track you feel truly rocks your world. The winning band will then advance to face a new opponent.
(This Cage Match will run until Friday, Feb. 21, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
