Welcome to another edition of
BATTLE OF THE BANDS
BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by Far Away Series and StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands. is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week. (See below for further details.)
threatened promised, I’m going back to my rock roots for this one. Psychedelic Rock left a big impression on me (read more about that HERE) and I’m still getting high on the music, all these years later.
♫♫ To make it even more
this battle features Heavy Metal vs Hardcore Punk♫♫
[reference only – please do not vote on this one]
“White Rabbit” is a song written by Grace Slick, lead vocalist for the American psychedelic band Jefferson Airplane. Recorded for their 1967 album, Surrealistic Pillow, it was released as a single and became the band’s second top ten success, peaking at number eight on the Billboard Top 100. The song was ranked number 478 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and appears on The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. – Wikipedia
