P.O.D. vs. Saliva – Classic Cage Match
First things first … congrats go out to Marilyn Manson, as ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)’ earned its fourth straight Loudwire Classic Cage Match victory. This time the 1999 favorite took out the mighty Slipknot and their single ‘Wait and Bleed.’ With the fourth win in a row, the song will now retire, giving two new competitors a chance at following in their footsteps.
The calendar moves forward to 2001 for our latest matchup and we’re ready to lower the “boom” with this one. Back in 2001, P.O.D. were going strong on their ‘Satellite’ album and one of the songs that put them there was ‘Boom,’ a full-on rocker led by Sonny Sandoval’s in-your-face delivery of the song’s title.
Meanwhile, Saliva were also starting to make a name for themselves on the rock scene with their breakout disc, ‘Every Six Seconds.’ Though ‘Your Disease’ saw them begin to pull in fans, the follow-up single ‘Click Click Boom’ was when things really started to blow up.
So take a listen to both of these explosive tracks and tell us which song — P.O.D.’s ‘Boom’ or Saliva’s ‘Click Click Boom’ — deserves to advance by voting in the poll provided below.
(This Classic Cage Match will run until Friday, Aug. 8, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
