Battle of the Bands: Rocktober,Beatles and more!

Well it is October again. Like I did last year I will theme it to "Rocktober." I heard some radio station call October that many years ago and I like it. I'm sure with November and December my blog will continue with the themes.

Who better to kick off Rocktobermania (yeah, I just made that word up) with than the Beatles. I think "Helter Skelter" is one Beatles song that really rocks!

The Song: Helter Skelter

The Beatles on Vinyl. A classic band played in a classic manner. 

Contender One: Aerosmith

Contender Two: Motley Crue

Welcome to my Rocktober party! I am kicking it off in style with the Beatles, Aerosmith and Motley Crue. Your vote decides who wins! Vote for Aerosmith or Motley Crue in the comments. Stay tuned for more Rocktober posts!

Classic rock tune. Scary implications as well.

Both bands kept true to the spirit of the song. I was pretty sure that I'd vote Aerosmith, but Motley Crue surprised me with their hard-driving version. That's my vote: Motley Crue.

Great song choice. I vote for Aerosmith because they're Aerosmith, who look kind of silly now but they're still Aerosmith. Did I mention that I love this song? You've Rocktobered me.

YAY another Rocktober person! I almost thought about putting together a Rocktober bloghop, but wasnt sure about how much time I'd have to dedicate to it. But all my posts this month will have the Rocktober theme. I've been doing this since I started my blog 2 years ago.

I really like what the Crue did with this song. Giving my vote to them.

Great battle!

I vote for Charles Manson and his Family. They dindu nuffin'. The Family was just misunderstood, that's all.

OK, seriously, I'm voting for Aerosmith AND Motley Crue. I didn't like either recording, but I discovered that when I played them BOTH, SIMULTANEOUSLY, it sounded great!

OK-OK, seriously-seriously, I'll vote for MOTLEY CRUE.

Great song! I still love the Beatles best obviously but I will go with Aerosmith. I liked their rendition a bit more than Motley Crüe

I thought for sure that I'd vote for Aerosmith because they are one of my very favorite bands. But I liked Motley Crue's version best. It almost pains me to do this but give my vote to Motley Crue. :)
Great Rocktober battle!

Another good battle, it's great to be back.
I love Aerosmith and never been big on Motley Crue. Good thing I like Aerosmith's version better, so it's not a hard choice for me. Please place my vote for Aerosmith.

Mike, as much as I like Aerosmith their cover just didn't cut it for me. I preferred Motley Crue's version. The vocals and booming bass guitar just suited the song so much more. Give my vote to MC. Good battle and have a rockin' Roctoberfest!
