    Another matchup that isn't even remotely close. Pearl Jam should take this with ease.

    The Deftones were decent. I was never immediately angered by the utter mediocrity of their music when they came on the radio, unlike most of today's rock bands. But they don't even come close to the greatness that is Pearl Jam.

    Easily one the greatest rock and roll bands of all time IMO. Not just grunge (wow thats starting to sound like my mantra) or alternative rock, but all time. They recorded a slew of absolute rock classics in the early 90s. Ten, Vs., and Vitalogy are all classics that still remain close by my stereo.

    Pearl Jam takes this one easily.

    Pearl Jam songs to check out: Evenflow, Alive, Jeremy, Once, Black, Animal, Daughter, Corduroy, Rearviewmirror, Better Man, God's Dice, Evacuation, Go, Last Kiss

    Last Kiss may be my least favorite song by a band I absolutely love. It is such a whiney, depressing song. And every other sing you listed, X, is AMAZING MUSIC.

    The riffs through Ten were the stuff of legend, and thank you for putting the best song on the album Ten - that being "Once," on your list.

    The Deftones, to me, could disappear tomorrow and nobody would notice. Pearl Jam is not going anywhere anytime soon.

    I agree, "Last Kiss" was just crap IMO, I know It was done with good intentions, but still It was crap, one of Pearl Jam's only dull moments

    Doesn't matter though, Pearl Jam still takes by miles. I grew up on Pearl Jam, and even though I wasn't a big fan of theirs at first, most of their stuff did grow on me in time. They were a mellower type of rock band, something that you could wind down to, like Pink Floyd or The Police. Plus They make excellent long distance driving music.
