David Bowie- End of the line for Queen against a fitting rival.

Arcade Fire- Great bands tend to be innovators and neither of these two are innovators. Yet, sometimes when you perfect something that's been done before, you can be just as good as those who created it.

The Rolling Stones- First glance at this and I said CCR right away. Then I thought about it, and sometimes I don't give enough credit to the Stones because of their huge catalog. They are very hit or miss for me, but they still have more singles I enjoy than CCR which I didn't realize right away until I looked at their Wiki pages, and they have three albums I really enjoy compared to CCR's one album.

Jimi Hendrix- I'll go Hendrix just because he doesn't have the cringe worthy moments that the Doors have.

Led Zeppelin- Pretty easy choice here and I'm just a casual Zeppelin fan.

Bob Marley- Bob Marley is a little overrated when it comes to reggae, and the Clash are a little overrated for bringing reggae into punk.

The Beatles- Probably my two favorite bands. That's disappointing.

The Kinks- Doesn't matter how hard the Godfather worked, he can't beat that fantastic 4 album stretch from 66-69.

David Bowie #7 vs. Queen
Elvis Presley #98 vs. Arcade Fire
The Rolling Stones #27 vs. Creedence Clearwater Revival #70
Jimi Hendrix #45 vs. The Doors #28
Led Zeppelin #67 vs. Miles Davis #99 vs. Metallica #44 - Could Miles have a chance if hard rock fans split their votes between LZ and M? Probably not.
The Clash vs. Bob Marley #5
The Beatles [NA] vs. Simon & Garfunkel #13 - again, my heart goes to Beatles' opponent
James Brown #38 vs. The Kinks
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

Aracde Fire was (+5) on AM... but interestingly enough they were only (-4) with the non-AMers.

I think it's pretty funny Miles and Metallica tied again.
