I am sitting here with my girlfriend, and we just had this conversation after watching a Youtube video of the old Kiss playing “Cold Gin”, which had popped up on my list of recommendations and I clicked it out of nostalgia:

ME: "Y’know, Kiss had some really great songs on their early albums. They were simple, catchy…
HER: “Yeah, but the Eagles had much better music, and the lyrics actually had meaning.”
ME: “What?!? What do the Eagles have to do with anything I just said? Where did you pull that out of?”
HER: “You said Kiss had some really great songs, and I was just pointing out that the Eagles were much better.”
ME: “Yeah, but…I mean, I’m not even disagreeing, but…apples and oranges, man.”
HER: “Perfectly valid comparison.”
ME: “Is it though?”
[Pause]
ME: [-Bright Idea-] "I’m gonna do a poll on Quarter To Three.
HER: “Don’t you dare!”
ME: “Why not? You said it was a perfectly valid–”
HER: “I will not let you slander the Eagles’ good name by putting them in a poll with fucking Kiss!”

And so here we are.

KISS vs Eagles

wtf no

#3

Can I vote for The Phantom of the Park?

True story:

We were at a pool party several years back when a woman I barely knew, a co-worker of our host, suggested we all go to a particular bar that night. Why?

She: “Because bal bla bla, a KISS cover band is playing and it/s only $10 to get in”.
Me: “I wouldn’t pay $10 to see the real fucking thing”.

I fuckin’ love the Eagles, man. I will go to bat for those sons of bitches any day.

#5

Yeah the Eagles are a real freaking band of actual musicians with some incredible songs, especially those written by Jackson Browne.

Kiss? I mean, are you serious?

EDIT Wow I just read the OP (I had voted and then scrolled down) and … well, what your gf said.

#6

EDIT: That came out crankier than it needed to be.

I do not like the Eagles one tiny bit. :)

#7

If I was going to a large concert venue I would pick KISS, but if I was playing music on my music player at home or in my car, I would pick the Eagles. KISS was great in concert, but otherwise their music sucked.

#8

The Eagles only have one good song.

KISS has a pinball machine.

The choice is clear.

#9

The Eagles Greatest Hits was in my parents record collection so its just old peoples music and for some reason KISS were never big in the UK. I only really ever came across them in adverts in comics.

#10

I always wondered how the Eagles were popular, despite them only having a single tolerable song. And now I know: mental illness?

#11

Get the fuck out of my cab. ;)

Love the Eagles. Love.

#12

My total is zero, so I’m truly wondering what this one good song it. Please don’t say Hotel California.

Actually, this is my favorite Eagles song:

#13

As a native Philadelphian who hates sports, this song makes me want to punch a baby. And you.

#14

And yet The Eagles: Greatests Hits is the best selling album of all time. Helluva feat to pull off with only one good song. Go figure.

#15

I don’t care for either but wouldn’t really compare the two, seem to be different kinds of bands.

#16

I never loved either band, but I know for a fact that Kiss influenced shitloads of artists that I absolutely love so they win by default in my book.

#17

Man, but Kiss though - they’re like the Monkees of metal!

#18

One Of These Nights?

#19

I can take it. Spare the baby.

#20

Not if it’s a baby born in Philadelphia. They might become a sports fan.
