Pantera vs. Korn – 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, Quarterfinals
We’ve got two distinctively different sounding hard rock tracks advancing to the quarterfinals of the Loudwire Rock Bowl in Pantera‘s thrashy favorite ‘F—ing Hostile’ entering the arena against Korn‘s style-shifting rocker ‘Freak on a Leash.’
Pantera’s ‘F—ing Hostile’ barely made it out of the first round with 53 percent of the vote against stiff competition from Drowning Pool’s ‘Bodies.’ But make no mistake, Pantera are definitely ready to hype up their listeners with this classic. You can just envision an NFL defensive end unleashing untold destruction in the backfield thanks after getting amped to the pent-up energy of this track.
Korn, meanwhile, had things a little easier with ‘Freak on a Leash’ outlasting System of a Down’s ‘Psycho.’ Earning just shy of 59 percent of the final tally, the band is ready to unleash their ‘Freak’ on Pantera, much like an onrushing cornerback blitz.
So which track deserves to advance as the better football anthem? That’s for you to decide. Vote for either Pantera’s ‘F—ing Hostile’ or Korn’s ‘Freak on a Leash’ between now and this coming Wednesday (Jan. 30) morning at 10AM ET in the poll below.
