Holy shit... just surprised the hell out of myself. I gave Bon Jovi the clean sweep. The first two are obvious, and although I think 'Pyromania' is a better album than 'Slippery...' the highlights of those discs... for me, the best BJ songs off 'Slippery...' are better than the best off 'Pyromania'. And same with 'Hysteria' vs. 'New Jersey'. Both classics, but 'New Jersey' definitely has the best songs, imo. And the last two are obvious too... but zomfg, did not expect a clean sweep.

What about Bounce Vs X

 

Ran out of questions for this poll, or I'd have done their entire discographies...

Why are you so surprised?? Its an absolute no brainer for me. Bon Jovi have been and always will be about 100 light years ahead of Def Leppard........I doubt a single DL song would make my BJ top 10 or even 15!

 

Albums like s/t, New Jersey, Keep The Faith, Slippery are some of THE best rock albums ever recorded. They have had a few wobbles along the way, but those 4 are right up there.

I went BJ - S/T, Then DL - High N Dry (easily btw), DL - Pyromania, DL - Hysteria, BJ - Keep the faith (easily) & BJ - These days (underrated)

 

It was tough in the middle though...big fan of New Jersey but had to go with Hysteria.

The biggest shocker mate is Pyromania > Slippery :yikes:

I don't like "Pyromania" either. In fact, Bon Jovi win every round for me - with the exception of "New Jersey" versus "Hysteria". As much as I love "NJ", nothing really touches "Hysteria", but DL can't come close in the other contests....

Yeah that was the closest one for me, but 'Born To Be My Baby' & 'Wild Is The Wind' absolutely slaughter anything on 'Hysteria'

 

For me anyway.

And you forgot "Living In Sin". However, IMHO "Hysteria" has absolutely no filler. The standout tracks aren't as good as those on "NJ", but overall it's a pretty flawless listen from beginning to end....

Darn near what I'd choose...except I'd replace Have a Nice Day with Something For The Pain.

 

I went every other in the voting, starting with Bon Jovi for the debut

Bon Jovi - S/T - Easily the best of these two in every dept and still the best album Bon Jovi have ever done.

 

Def Leppard - High 'n' Dry - Kicks 7800 Fahrenheit's ass big time

 

Def Leppard - Pyromania - A bit of a closer call, but 'Pyro' is definitely the better disc and it's got 'Photograph' on it.

 

Def Leppard - Hysteria - Both good albums, but 'Hysteria' gets the vote for me, due to more consistency, even though it is way to over produced.

 

Bon Jovi - Keep The Faith - One of the Better Bon Jovi discs and better than the patchy 'Adrenalize'.

 

Bon Jovi - These Days - Songwise, this kills 'Slang' hands down.

Okay, who voted for Slang? :whistle:

 

I voted for Slang....as 'These Days' is just too light and fluffy for me....LOL After Keep the Faith, BJ lost the plot for me to some degree.....

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
