This should be a no-brainer. As bad as Beck is, his music can often fade off into the background. At most, if you notice it, you'll get slightly annoyed.
There is no escaping how bad Kravitz is. NO ESCAPE.

This is...tough.

While I agree with Ace above,
when Beck becomes noticed I want to choke him

I guess I'll have to go with Beck as the lesser of two evils
because he has one song I like
"Mutherfuker"

That song can still give me a feeling of paranoia if I suspend my disbelief.

Interesting, I prefer Kravitz' faux-hard rock over Beck's faux-funk myself.
I used to play guitar for Elma and Buistra, and bass for Are You God?.

Beck has a couple of good songs.

Lenny doesn't.

Beck has a ton of good songs. A couple of really nice albums here and there. I heard a couple of tour stories which paint him as an okay guy. I really think for the most part he's at the good end of pop music.

Lenny Kravitz is just appalling. Not comparable at all.

Beck has some mildly alright songs.

Lenny has none. None at all.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

I hate most Beck music, but that Guerro album is really good.
The rest, fuck that shit.

Oh yeah, and that 'Rowboat' song is good too.

Lenny Kravitz has one almost ok song, it's the first single he put out 'Let love rule or whatever.
It's a bad song but I remember the vocals sounded kinda cool the way they were recorded on one part.

So Beck has one full album and one song that I like and LK has one part of one song that I thought was ok.

Beck takes it.

Beck has good shit. Lenny does not ever, never. Hendrix is shooting up in hell, he is so pissed.

Beck: much better songwriter, infinitely better lyricist
Kravitz: not a Scientologist

Wow guys. I'm not saying Beck is the second coming of Bob Dylan or anything, but to compare him to a complete hack like Lenny Kravitz is beyond ridiculous.

I'm going to go against the 24-1 tide here and say that I prefer the earnest pastiche of Lenny Kravitz to the wink-nudge pastiche of Beck.

EDIT: Except that I just clicked on the wrong button. Put that chad back in there.

I agree with this. Plus, Scientology. Scientology. Once again, Scientology.

Lenny Kravitz.

the over zealous phase ruins this song. I don't think it's that bad. if covered by the right band, it would be quite cool.

I sorta like that one, but kravitz is a hack.

so, beck.

Beck lost me some years ago, but I still don't consider him to be 'evils' by any means and don't quite see why anyone would. Kravitz? Yeah, fuck him.

edit: 28-1, haha. PRF agrees on something, finally.
