Slipknot vs. P.O.D. – 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, Round 1
It’s time to get amped up for some football and in our 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, we’re attempting to find out which track gets you most in the mood for gridiron aggression. This first round matchup pits the masked rockers of Slipknot against the “Southtown” favorites, P.O.D.
Slipknot offer plenty of unrelenting tracks, but ‘Wait and Bleed’ is arguably the best fit for football. As Corey Taylor sings about the hate raising up inside of him, that sentiment can apply to the competition at hand. And given the violent nature of football, there will definitely be some bleeding coming soon.
P.O.D.’s hit song ‘Boom’ has long been a sports anthem, with singer Sonny Sandoval seemingly calling out the competition after a particularly hard hit. As the song says, “Boom! / Here comes the boom! / How you like me now?” There’s no mistaking that sentiment when it comes to football.
Which one of these rock warriors will be left standing when Round 1 is complete? That’s up to you to decide. Listen to both tracks below, then vote in the poll provided.
