Marilyn Manson vs. Tool – Classic Cage Match
Congrats to Marilyn Manson, as 'The Fight Song' put up a fight and took down System of a Down's 'Chop Suey.' The latter song was one victory away from the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame, but Manson's aggressive, swagger-filled 'Fight Song' is the new Classic Cage Match champ and lives to battle another day.
This week Manson squares off against another 2001 favorite, Tool's 'Schism.' The heavy track from the band's 2001 'Lateralus' album is instantly recognizable thanks to its killer low end and it has become one of the band's more popular tracks. The distinctive time signatures and lyrical patterns definitely make the song stand out.
So give both tracks a listen in the players provided. Then tell us if you prefer Marilyn Manson's 'The Fight Song' or Tool's 'Schism' by voting in the poll below.
(This Classic Cage Match will run until Friday, Sept. 26, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
