The Great Band Debates of Our Time

The Great Band Debates of Our Time

Postby BostonSucksMyBalls » 04 Oct 2017, 12:28

The WUS was discussing this yesterday, and there were some really interesting opinions being offered up.

Who do you prefer, Bruce or Tom Petty? Some guy said that only east coast bias ppl like Bruce better than Petty, and that Bruce doesnt sell out anywhere west of like PA.

Me? I would choose Petty bc he had some songs that were good. I am not a big Springstein fan. Plus he's preachy and whiny I think.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

Agreed. Deeper catalog. Less general suckage, fewer dickhead fans.

You are wrong cheese, which is comforting. BSMB is correct that other than parts of Arizona, Bruce is not very popular west of Chicago.

Eta for Lurch's comment. Petty's catalog is deeper than Bruce's? Umm, not even close. This is more incorrect than your Tom Brady opinions.

Springsteen turned 68 this year. Petty was a few weeks shy of 67. Ok.



Nobody could write a pop/rock song like Petty, Bruce is a wannabe Dylan. Bruce has the better music, Petty has a better voice. Lyrics are both great. Bruce's shows seem better, Petty's shows seem more fun. I couldn't choose.

You're talking about a 67 year old musician and a 68 year old musician and claiming someone is preferring the one to the other because they're a middle aged white guy.

Ok.

I know the booze is prolly wearing off and giving you the brain ouchies, but remind me where anyone ever has stereotypically associated MAWGs with Tom Petty.







Ok.

Better or worse, I don't know and don't care.

Bruce is wildly more popular than Petty.

And that is a shame.

Bruce's music insists upon itself. Rosalita is a great song though.

Petty's shows over the last 10 years blow Springsteen's away. Springsteen's are long, bloated affairs with fake evangelical asides to fill the 'three hour show'.

As a MAWG I'd like to interject, if I may.

The case of Bruce v. Petty should be dismissed for being filed in the wrong venue (thanks Balls).
I'm partial to Petty, but I'm from Florida, so I might be a little biased.
But I like Bruce, too.
They're both very MAWG-ish musicians and I enjoy their music.

Final note: I'd like to think that Greg is not mocking MTM for the Twins loss last night, but is wishing him luck in having two children born at the same time so that MTM can experience fatherhood in an accelerated manner and enjoy it as much as Greg enjoys his family.
Balls: I know a guy who came home after high school one day to over hear his mom and dad having a 3some with another lady. He actually went to beat off during it in his room.
