Shinedown won a close battle against the almighty Rush over the weekend, but will they be able to beat out today’s challengers?

California rock band Hoobastank have returned with their new single ‘This Is Gonna Hurt’ (not the Sixx: A.M. song of the same name). The new track is off of their upcoming disc ‘Fight or Flight,’ which is due out July 31 and is their follow up to 2009’s ‘For(N)ever.’ A full length tour has not been announced yet but the band is playing two large music festivals at the end of July in Hawaii and Portugal; for more info, go here.

So will Hoobastank lay down the 'Hurt' in this Cage Match or will Shinedown continue on the road to victory? Get in on the action and vote for your favorite track below!

(This Cage Match ends Wednesday, June 6, at 8AM ET.)

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!
