VOTE! Alice Cooper VS the Band: Ultimate Classic Rock

Source: Ultimate Classic Rock

This month’s Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame battle has reached the final round, and it all comes down to either Alice Cooper or the Band.

While these two acts don’t have much in common musically, they both earned their place in the rock firmament through decades of touring and recording starting in the late ’60s. After making a name for themselves as backing musicians for Bob Dylan, the Band made its stand-alone debut with 1968′s Music From Big Pink; Cooper arrived the following year, with the Pretties for You LP. They diverged from there, with Cooper pioneering shock rock and the Band hearkening back to traditional song forms with a series of albums that helped lay the groundwork for the Americana format, but they both later enjoyed induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Their journey toward induction into our 100 percent reader-voted Hall of Fame has found both acts defeating strong opponents along the way. Cooper made quick work of Neil Young in the opening round, while the Band crushed Jefferson Airplane; in the semifinals, Cooper squeaked past Bob Seger, while the Band claimed victory over Jethro Tull.

Now which one makes it past the final round? That’s your call. You can vote once per hour until 11:59PM ET on March 2. This month’s winner will be announced on March 3. Be sure to read the official rules.

    Brenda – you’re exactly right – while the Master of All Rock (and a reeling psycopath)onstage, Alice is the greatest, most generous guy ever. I haven’t met a nicer gentleman. Rock on Alice!!!

  • Brenda

    Alice is still the best, and should win this thing. You gotta meet him – the meet and greet is well worth the price. He is such a nice guy!

  • Dan Dailey

    You were the best! We all partied with you! Never met you, but as some album in 73 said: you wouldn’t forget your old pal the ‘Coop. Love you forever.
