Skillet have escaped with their second straight close Cage Match victory. The band’s current single, “Back From the Dead,” overcame Adelitas Way’s “Ready for War (Pray for Peace)” in the final hours of voting to advance to face a new Cage Match opponent, but can the driving rocker keep it going?

This week’s opponent is the new one from Nickelback. “Feed the Machine” is the title track from their forthcoming album and has been gaining raves for its heavier sounding vibe. The track has been shooting up the rock radio charts, but does it have what it takes to overcome Skillet?

Let’s rock them both out in the players below. Then let us know if you prefer Skillet’s “Back From the Dead” or Nickelback’s “Feed the Machine” by voting in the poll provided.

(This Cage Match will run until March 6 at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)

Rules of Cage Match:
Fans can vote once per hour for their favorite song. 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!
