P.O.D. vs. Staind – Classic Cage Match

POD vs Staind
Atlantic / Elektra

Congrats to P.O.D., who won the battle of the “boom” in the most recent Classic Cage Match. The band’s 2001 anthem ‘Boom’ bested Saliva’s ‘Click Click Boom’ to earn another week of rocking in the Loudwire Classic Cage Match and it’s time to find them a new opponent.

Stepping into the Classic Cage Match, it’s Staind. The band was definitely on top of their game in 2001 with their ‘Break the Cycle’ album, and the song that really exploded was the deeply heavy and personal ‘It’s Been Awhile.’ The track remains one of the band’s calling cards and a standout cut in a live setting.

So take a listen to P.O.D.’s ‘Boom’ and Staind’s ‘It’s Been Awhile’ and let us know which track you feel deserves to advance by voting in the poll provided below.

(This Classic Cage Match will run until Friday, Aug. 15, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)

P.O.D., ‘Boom’

Staind, ‘It’s Been Awhile’
