That was a hard choice! I have loved both of these bands the better portion of my life, but gotta go with the Peppers.

Loved them both, but have been on the RHCP bandwagon since 1987 when they had their original lineup. Scar Tissue was the first single from 'Californication' which was the return of John Frusciante as guitarist, once he kicked his smack habit. Possibly the best stuff they have done although I love their entire body of work.

RHCP, FTW!!!

Both are pretty good. It would have been a tougher call for me if I would have liked the RHCP song you selected more. I went with 1979.

Both these bands do things I love and hate, but these tunes represent each band well. I went with Scar Tissue because the groove of it works some kind of magic on me. And, I love Frusciante.

I do, however, want to add that Pumpkins' Gish album is an underrated stoner metal gem.

Didn't care for either of these bands, although they both did a couple of
songs I actually liked. Thought RHCP was the better of the two bands
as a whole, but I picked 1979 / SP here. Just thought it was the better
of the two.

Love both songs, so the videos had to be a tiebreaker. And we all know 1979 isn't losing that one.

Surprised Scar Tissue is losing. Both songs are great but Scar Tissue is just one of those songs you want to sing along with on a long ride somewhere.

I like both bands but RHCP is definitely better and has much better tracks. However, I wouldn't consider "Scar Tissue" one of their best songs, although it is good. I still gave it a slight nod over "1979."

This one really wasn't that tough for me. I like rhcp fine, but smashing pumpkins is one of those bands that got me through my teen years.

I can remember the day I picked up 'Gish' from Repo Records in Charlotte...I also bought Dinosaur Jr's Green Mind that same day. I actually saw SP at the very beginning of the Siamese Dream tour right before it broke big at the old Boathouse in Norfolk Va...they were awesome...the Boathouse was sick...it used to be an old fish packing house that was turned into a music venue. It was literally on the dock in the harbor. It got destroyed beyond repair during Hurricane Isabel...it was like watching a band play in your living room...if your living room was a shack on the docks. The next time I saw them was later on that same tour at the Township auditorium in Columbia and it simply wasn't as urgent or unhinged...or as good...of course state of mind had a lot to do with things I'm sure. Jerry Garcia was playing at the Hampton Coliseum that same night and me and my now wife picked up a friend of ours from there between sets and things got rolling in a hurry.

The first one is up there among my favorite shows ever.
