Quick music poll #2

Which band do I hate more, Steely Dan or Aerosmith?



Oh, you hate Aerosmith more. Mostly because there are more opportunities to hate them. That Steven Tyler is goddamn everywhere.

I'm betting on Aerosmith as well. Way more visible. Always in the news, on TV, etc...

Donald Fagen - just another guy from Jersey who you probably wouldn't know if you walked past him on the street.

Do I detect some snark directed towards The Dan? Hey, complex melodies, intelligent lyrics, and a name taken from a William S. Burroughs reference. I'd say that outclasses Aerosmith.

I like Aerosmith so I'm voting Steely Dan.:-)

I should add that I *do* like Steely Dan, so it's easy for me to hate Aerosmith with undiluted venom.

Must be Aerosmith. Can't be Steely Dan.

Thanks to everyone for their input. The consensus seems to be Aerosmith, but after further thought, I've realized the real answer is, of course, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Skynyrd vs. Boston--now that's a cage match from Hell. And the winner could play Aerosmith for the Grand Title of Jeri's Eternal Torment.

March Madness, here we come!

Oh don't get me wrong - Steely Dan is good. They're just not charismatic.
