Today is judgment day for the band RED, who have won four straight Cage Matches with their song ‘Lie to Me (Denial).’ This group of Southerners will be Loudwire’s first ever inductee to the Cage Match Hall of Fame if they pull out one more win. So, who will they have to beat out?

None other than multiplatinum rockers Nickelback, who stir things up with their single ‘Bottoms Up’ off of their upcoming studio release, ‘Here and Now,’ due out Nov. 21 via Roadrunner Records. This modern day drinking song can win the heart of anyone who loves bar hopping. Check out our review of the tune here.

So, will ‘Bottoms Up’ sink or will Nickelback deny RED entrance into the Cage Match Hall of Fame? Vote for your favorite of the two songs below!

Rules of Cage Match:

There are no rules … except this one: If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight cage matches, it is retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With so many great songs out there, we have to give other bands a chance!
