Melvins, easily.

The Pixies are a bland pop group. Sometimes Frank Black screams a little or they play their little Beatles-y songs through some distortion, but I don't know what the big deal is. I've tried to "get" the Pixies, but I'm just bored by them. I like a few songs, but the reverence people have for them is inexplicable.

The Melvins have been consistently great for years and years now. They are a spectacular rock band.

The Pixies suck. Yeah, yeah, spare me your arguments. Believe me, I've heard it all before.

The Melvins have sucked starting with Stag. But their early output . . . incredible.

So, based on the least amout of sucktitude, I gotta hand this one to the Melvins.

I think Gigantic by the Pixies earns a chuckle but nothing else moves me.

The Melvins win hands down although I miss Kevin Rutmanis and am not to keen on their current output...too classic rockish or something.

I loved the Pixies in Jr. High/High School and I still like some of their stuff but the Melvins are far more entertaining.

Good pop songs does not the Melvins beat.

That's accurate but contentless; the Melvins have a lot of records, and if you weren't in to them why the fuck would you be listening to more than a third of their discography?

I cannot imagine my life without the equal influence of both dogs and cheese.

However, I have owned more cheese than dogs.
