Iron Maiden vrs Pearl Jam 21:44 on Thursday, November 03, 2005
According to the Magazine Hit Parader, Iron Maiden is better than Pearl Jam (for those who care about what magazines care even though this magazine has good critics who know about music because they are musicians) but i want to know what everybody thinks about this.
In my opinion Iron Maiden kicks Pearl Jams ass by alot, instrumentally, lyrically, and vocally.
Unfair/ Bad comparison 16:08 on Friday, November 04, 2005
Dude who the f**k is that magazine? I mean who are they? I follow music & know of most music magazines, ive never heard of them... congratulations, one f-ing magazine said Iron Maiden is better than Pearl Jam..
Rolling Stone magazine said Pearl Jam is better than Iron Maiden, why does it matter?
Also, this comparison is shabby & not really fair... Pearl Jam has been around only half as long.. Iron Maiden has released more studio albums... why not compare Iron Maiden to the Cure? theyve been around about the same amount of time, its a fair match
Anyway.. even though Iron Maiden has been around twice as long... I think Pearl Jam`s music has had a bigger effect on culture & musical significance, is more widely known worldwide.. & will be more remembered.
If Iron Maiden never existed... there still wouldve been Judas Priest... if Pearl Jam never existed..? What then? Theres no one like them, there wouldve been no replacement or another band to fill the void.. unlike Iron Maiden with Judas Priest

Dude have you heard Judas Priest, its nothing like Iron Maiden, Nothing sounds like Iron Maiden, now Pearl Jam has alot grunge followers that sound like them and by the way dont forget Nirvana, you may not like them but their still would be a void filler like you call them even though they dont sound the same, so its the same when you say Judas Priest is a void filler for Iron Maiden, it just doesnt go.
And Iron Maiden is much more known than Pearl Jam. Every body has seen that logo and the mascot Eddie, plus who hasnt heard the trooper or the number of the Beast, but still who hasnt heard Jeremy, but Iron Maiden i believe is more known because of its image, maybe in the music they are known just as much.
Plus i wouldnt trust the opinions of a magazine who puts Britney and Christina on there covers. go to Hit Parader.com and see a magazine that specializes on rock/metal.

"Just remember dude, the american audience isnt the only one that exists in the world, all around europe, Japan, South Amrecia, Central America, Mexico, they all know Iron Maiden more than Pearl Jam, belivieeve me."
Look, dipsh!t - I`m not talking about the USA audience only, I am talking worldwide - How much albums has Iron Maiden sold? Ok.. multiply that by about 4.. that`s how many more albums Pearl Jam has sold in the half time theyve existed compared to Maiden
Record sales dont determine quality of music.. but they DO determine how well-known an artist is - Pearl Jam has sold about 65 million albums worldwide... about 30 million albums in the USA
Which means Pearl Jam has sold about 35 million albums in countries OTHER than the USA. Which is more alone than how many albums Iron Maiden has sold worldwide.. INCLUDING USA.
You can like Iron Maiden more than Pearl Jam, but trying to argue that Iron Maiden is better known is just stupid. Just straight up stupid.
You have no idea the incredible amount of fans Pearl Jam has in South America (theyre more popular there than in the USA) - or fans in Africa; Australia; Europe & Japan. You`ve deeply underestimated how famous they are.
You`re more likely to find someone who owns the album `Ten` than someone who can name just one Iron Maiden song off the top of their head. Deal with it.

This isnt fair if Iron Maiden wins.
You cant compare a band thats been releasing albums 15 years to a band thats been releasing albums for almost 30. Thats just stupid. If Iron Maiden wins its purely & only because once a band passes the 20 year mark, they become considered "classic" & it becomes "cool" & trendy to like them
Look at how popular Ac/Dc is, yet how many people can name ANY Ac/Dc album other than `Back in Black`?
Motley Crue was a joke in the mid 90s, today I see a bunch of young kids in Motley Crue tshirts.. why? Because they passed the 20 year mark
Ill never understand it logically, but its true.. think about it, it applies to basically any band - The longer youve existed, the "cooler" it is to like that band even if youre not familiar with their music - No doubt if Pearl Jam is still around 10 years from now, youre going to see a crap load of kids in PJ shirts
How many kids walking around in Iron Maiden tshirts actually listen to Iron Maiden on a regular basis? Theyre wearing those shirts because, yes, Eddie does look cool, & theyre trying to show off to older people that theyre a "true" metalhead.
Its about "classic" image, not about the music. Ive met cheerleaders who have said `Metallica Rocks` yet dont even know the frontman`s name.
