Steve that was cute!! Psychosis, where in the hell did the "screw flanders" thing come from. It made me laugh though. Metallica is an AWSOME band as well. I had to go with Evanescense mainly because their song Bring Me To Life is one I want to sing to my guy. I love that song. It's so much fun singing it at the top of your lungs when no one is home!!!

the flanders bit is from the simpsons, a friend was writing a review for me and he had to make it 600 words and was a few words short so he finished it with....

and to make it 600 words....screw flanders!
so we kinda use it as a joke piece......

....i agree evanescense are a great band its just that i have been a fan of metallica for many many years so they are my natural choice, i've have only really gotten into evanescense recently when my girlfriend lent me their cd, i thought it rocked simply.........

That's so cool. I know it was from the Simpsons I just didn't get the reason you put it...but now I do. CUTE!!

I'd like to get the Evanescense CD but I'm sooo fucking poor (no job) that I have to download EVERYTHING. Metallica is a kick ass band. I like their version of "Turn The Page".

C0nR0cks is an unknown quantity at this point
that's the stupidest lineup i've ever seen. linkin park and evanescence don't compare to metallica. and i'm not even a big metallica fan.

Can we not be persuaded by the music of the moment. Linkin Park is fucking horrible, you can't even tell when the first album and the new one end and begin. They have got to be the worst band to ever go platinum, with the worst guitarist in music.

Evanescense has a singer from another band singing in the song that everyone has whored to. Woman fronted bands are not good, with an exception of early No Doubt and that isn't even that good.

I will just let the word Metallica stand for itself, I can not even believe there is anyone arguing about this.

metallica will always be there, they are legends but ever since they "napster conspiracy" i've feel different about them

linkin park..they are ok..nothing great, the one song i do love from them is "1stp klosr" i recommend that song by linkin park..

I picked Evanescence because of their song "Eternal" and others from earlier years. I am so sick of Bring Me To Life, though.

There's nothing bad about women in music, especially when they lead a group.

And Linkin Park ... I have nothing to say for that, since you all probably know my opinion on that.

Metallica is good but I still prefer Evanescence.

i think daniel pretty much got it, and conrocks's comment sums up my feelings to: im not a mettalica fan, but even i can see there is NO comparrision.

linkin park are beyond dreadful, evenscene are pants pants pants, im not sexsist, it just so happens ive never heard a female fronted rock group that are good.

its like saying "whats your faveroite food; feaces, vomit or cake"

I personally like Evanescence. Linkin park i just dispise how their songs all sound the same. I wouldnt care if their music stopped. BEcause its the same But Metallica is cool. Metallica will always be there for years on end and continue to do great no matter what they do but my picks would go from
Evanescense,Metallica, and then LInkin park. If i really had to place them in order if not linkin park wouldnt be placed in any catagory that i like

those are three decent bands but thats all they are... metallica is the best of the 3 cuz they've rocked hard for so long... yeah evanescence has been around for a bit but its stupid that they're just getting popular cuz of a radio friendly single, its annoying... linkin park's just doing the same thing, playing same songs, but they're good live. metallica should have stopped 5 years ago, they're new song sounds awful, thats all i have to say about that.
