    A lot of people think the Doors provided the soundtrack for Viet Nam..not so. I still voted for them.
    I agree with Davhaf.....Kaiser March 9,2004

    Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

            ...So tricky, in fact, that the trio that popularized two turntables and a mike are getting little respect here.

            The Doors put out some interesting stuff before Morrison's questionable death, and some absolute drudgery, but Run DMC, I believe, should be given additional props for not only the mainstream introduction of what is now a billion-dollar genre, but also for catchy hit music.

              Run DMC is bad. Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning GOOD!

              RIP Jam Master Jay :(

                They're the kings of rock, there are none higher, sucker MC's -- should call them sire.

                Apparently this proclamation doesn't apply when facing The Doors in this competition, however. :(

                  I'm incredibly biased.. I love the Doors.. They're easily my favorite band... Anyway.. To get away from labeling them as pop.. Here's some of their better stuff, that really isn't publicized as much, if at all.

                  The Soft Parade (one of my favorite songs)

                  Woman is a devil (cool Blues song.. Don't believe was released til 99)

                    I voted RUN DMC, but it's a toss up.

                    Both were very influential.

                    I would say that on the hip hop side though, Fatback he did King Tim (the first rap song to make it on the radio) and Sugar Hill Gang (Who most people think was the first) along with Grand Master Flash deserve as much if not more credit.

                      This one was easy: The Doors.

                      In twenty years, Jim Morrison will still be talked about.

                      Run DMC will be an after thought.
                      Jimmy Buffett quote of the week:

                      "Open season on the open seas and Captain says no prisoners please. Skull and crossbones on a background of black. We ain't stealin' we're just takin' back ."

                          I didn't like the doors all that much, until I saw the movie, but I like them now.

                          RUN-DMC, on the other hand released their landmark album, Rasin' Hell, in 1986, when I was in the 7th or 8th grade.

                          I remember that being a transitional sort of time, musically, for me, as a lot of friends of mine listened to many different things.

                          I also loved the collaboration with Aerosmith on "Walk This Way", which was the impetus for commercial acceptance of rap music.
