Battle of the Bands: Overtime More Smoke

My last Battle of the Bands ended as a tie. I thought I would try and fine two more covers of the iconic "Smoke on the Water."

The original if you needed a reminder..

The two below are the contenders. I ask you leave a comment telling me which one you liked the best. The winner is the one with the most votes.

Contender One: Mr. Big

Contender Two: Rock All Stars

Who will win? The 80s/90s rock band Mr. Big or the band I am dubbing the Rock All Stars. You all decide. I look forward to your votes.

I'm going with Rock All Stars in this showdown.

The Rock All-Stars! That was awesome. The other guys weren't bad, though.

My BOTB, a blues classic.

I'm gonna go along with the crowd on this one and also vote for the "Rock All Stars", primarily because of the organ and better vocals.

Well, the All-Stars were definitely slick, but I'm giving my vote to Mr Big.

I liked Mr. Big's live version better than the all-star band, so I vote Mr. Big.

Mary B said...

Definitely voting for the Rock All Stars! I love what they did with it.

Birgit said...

I give this to Mr. Big because it seemed more cohesive where the All Stars were all vying to be heard.

Although I hated, hated, HATED the beginning of the All-Stars version. That was so unnecessary. But the actual song played through was every bit as amazing as the beginning was annoying, and I very much preferred their sound over Mr. Big's. Definitely a vote for the All-Stars for me.
