Bugs: Recent Topics Paging, Uploading Images & Preview (11 Dec 2020)

Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.

× WELCOME TO TRASHDOME!

This is part of a series of bloody matches to the death. Show support for your favorite game so it will do better in the fight. You can support it by writing why you think its the better game and more importantly by betting (i.e. voting for) it. Please make it clear for when I check the bets later. You have until Friday when I tally the bets and declare the winner. I will reserve my bet for any tie-breakers.

Although you should be familiar with both games, there is no rule that says you have to have played both of them. The only rule in Trashdome is this;

Two games enter! One game leaves!

Yesterday A tear rolled down my cheek as I had one of my proudest moments as a father. My 2 teenage daughters were having a debate over which band was better ACDC vs. Black Sabbath. That's right they weren't debating Miley Cyrus vs. Justin Bieber. They were debating ACDC vs. Black Sabbath and Back in Black vs. Paranoid and Highway to Hell vs. Iron Man.

Me and my doucheyboy brother could settle this debate as we both agreed that we spend more time over our life time listening to ACDC's simplier music but appreciated the greater influence that Black Sabbath had on Heavy Metal and Rock music. So we'll leave it up you. Please vote to settle this very important question.

ACDC or Black Sabbath

Bonus points to Uba and Al if they can guess which daughter like ACDC and which daughter like Sabbath.

The answer should be Sabbath... but AC/DC it is for Back in Black. AC/DC weren't as heavy and were more fun to listen to, especially as kids

Bon Scott is one of the greatest songwriters and singers in the history of rock. AC/DC it is.

The whole of Back in Black is pretty great, not just the title track :)

Plus, AC/DC is easier to spell :)

I'm less of a fan of AC/DC post-Scott (Back in Black onwards), but the Bon Scott material is brilliant. The one song they keep playing over and over as Barnes called it started in the Scott era and has made AC/DC probably THE most recognizable sound in rock.

See if you can track down the Live at the Old Waldorf bootleg. It's on YouTube but the sound quality sucks. There are better quality versions out there you can find, download, burn, and rock out to. "Don't mind these seats here... They're for STANDIN' ON!"

Black Sabbath with the original four was also brilliant, but without Ozzy the band never even approached how good they were with Ozzy. They probably were a greater influence than AC/DC, but they can still get in line behind a bunch of other bands from that era.

Overall album content is a wash; for every four great tracks on the early Sab albums there are four very average tracks, and the same can be said for AC/DC.

Vote for AC/DC for wanting to rock, knowing how to do it, and not giving a shit about your appreciation level for the intricacies of their song structure.

I can't believe that someone would consider AC/DC in the same breath as Black Sabbath.

Sabbath, all the way.

THIS, in spades. Brian Johnson sucks, so only pre-BiB.

jeez, I love Highway to Hell, never realised Back in Black was held in such low regard.

As it stands, I wouldn't put either of these bands on today, but if it comes on the radio, I prefer AC/DC ... Sabbath is played out for me.

Easy: AC/DC

I think both Scott and Johnson are great though.
