See other thread for live music from both. 

 

Big chance for the GF to do the right thing here and see CCR through.

Last 16 tie? Bloody hell there is some absolute dross getting through at the expense of one of these great bands. Beach Boys by a gnat's pube for me.

Its the way the draw goes mate. These came out as 13/14 so technically should have been last nights tie but I thought this mouth-watering tie needed a full days worth of debate seeing as REM will drill a new hole into my Karen-O. That's the only time I have changed a single thing in any of the draws.

 

I moved it for Sky Sports if you like. 

 

The answer here is CCR. Ok Pet Sounds is a superb album and they were of course influential and the sound of an era but they also put out a lot of absolute garbage.

The Beach Boys made better albums than Pet Sounds.

 

Beach Boys all the way for me, from their early surf stuff right up to 1973 they were making amazing music that was often in a genre all of its own.

 

CCR were ok, I'll probably get slated for this but I think they're a bit overrated on this forum. My ex used to listen to them non-stop which probably put me off them a bit to be fair.

No Mook. They didn't. If that's your opinion then fine but I think you are trying too hard to come across as a music purist there. Its widely regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time across countless music platforms.

Beach Boys for me. Tonnes of great songs and all wrapped up in personal nostalgia.

 

CCR are great, but not great enough for me.

Why didn’t you tell him to mix it up a bit?

 

CCR for me. Only band that would have possibly beat them, for me, is Springsteen and E Street. I’ve loved them for years and never grow tired of listening to them.

 

I also love the story of CCR, the fallout with the record label, the band all hating each other and what happened with his brother.
 

I watched their acceptance speech into the Rock and Roll hall of fame the other week and it’s awkward as fuck. John Fogerty clearly hates the remaining two, who hate him, and then he goes on after it to do the CCR songs with Springsteen and Robbie Robertson and bans the others from joining in.
 

The Beach Boys are the second best band in this thing though and have made some great music. Some shit music as well but what band hasn’t?

 

Also, Kokomo is great. Fuck you.

Those greatest album polls are a load of bollocks.

 

I absolutely adore Pet Sounds so I'm certainly not going to debate how good it is, I just prefer some of their later LPs & listen to them more. I fucking hate music purists btw, they kill any sort of progression.

I love CCR. But it's got to be the Beach Boys...

They shouldn't have even beat Blondie.

Nobody has ever looked as cool as Dennis Wilson did on the cover of Pacific Ocean Blues.

Pretty cool, but he looks too happy. Dennis Wilson looks like he's about to kill someone. 

Dennis looks like his best mate is called Wilson. 

 

Fogarty looks like he's on his way from fucking some broad to go and fuck another broad. He also has a bit of Bundy about him as well.

Bullshit from the draw yet again, semi final minimum this one.

I like Creedence, and they obviously have a catalogue of classics, but a bit too samey for me. It was a great trick but it was just one trick.

Beach Boys had a wider range of magic.

Both great bands, possibly worthy of the final. But the Beach Boys for me. I know a lot more of their stuff. And in Pet Sounds they have one of the bona fide great albums of all time. I don't think Creedence can compete with that.

Well he actually was mates with Charles Manson so make of that what you will.

He was for a while until he had him kicked out his house & threatened to boot fuck out of him.

Would have been a worthy final. Beach Boys were better, more innovative and influential but I prefer listening to CCR.

Yeah the stuff about him moving in with Manson still freaks my nut out to this day.

 

Beach Boys for me, anyway. Barely listen to them at all now but they were a staple when I was growing up. I absolutely fucking hate a couple of their tunes, though. I literally cannot listen to In My Room.
