Motley Crue vs. Poison – Classic Cage Match

Motley Crue vs Poison
Elektra / Enigma

Motley Crue have extended their win streak to three in the Classic Cage Match competition. That means with two more victories Motley Crue and their adrenaline-fueled 1987 single ‘Wild Side’ will be heading to the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame. But do they have what it takes to survive the next challenge?

Poison really burst upon the scene in 1987 though their ‘Look What the Cat Dragged In’ album dropped a year earlier. But with ‘Talk Dirty to Me,’ the instantly recognizable opening guitar line and infectious exuberance led to Poison’s first international smash in 1987. It also aided in the popularity of the glam metal movement of the time.

So, is it ‘Wild Side’ or ‘Talk Dirty to Me’? Rock both songs at full volume in the players below, then vote for which track truly pumps you up. The winning band will then advance to face a new opponent.

(This Cage Match will run until Friday, March 14, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)

Motley Crue, ‘Wild Side’
