This is a hard one for me....two of my favourite New Wave bands are in the ring, and it's not gonna be pretty.

I LOVE The Cars. I'm gonna give Easton the one-up on Andy Taylor for guitar playing, but I've got to give bass superiority to John Taylor. The Cars' shared vocals are great, but IMO, so is Simon LeBon. Simon survived a boat capsize....Ocasek has a hot wife.....it's pretty much neck in neck.


That being said, Duran Duran were my first ever favourite group, and i'll give them points for (once again, IMO) a more solid output in the early days. That and nostalgia...it'll get you every damn time!

Duran Duran for me.

Duran Duran.. I have always loved them. Still love them. Almost cried when I saw them at the Jimmy Kimmel show. They were close enough that if I had shoved a couple girls out of the way I could have touched them but then I probably would have gotten kicked out. *sighs* They were so close.

I had to think about this one but when you consider Duran Duran's videos you have to give it to them. You HAVE TO.

Petra OWNS Stryper

I saw Petra live when I was 8. They were better than Duran Duran and they had a keytar and parachute pants.

Plus, when Tolch made me stand in line in the freezing cold for like two hours to meet DD, Simon was a douche.

Simon wasn't a douche. Security were douches.

Duran-2.
Hell, if nothing else for the "GIRLS ON FILM" video (long version). That sucker owned me for many, many days (at 5-minutes a shot, if you will).

The Cars. DD sucks.

What eloquence! It also happens to be correct. :D

THE CARS for me by a landslide. I hated DD when they were new, I hate them now, and I'll hate them when they put me 6 feet under.

And I love the CARS. And Ian Jane is very rarely wrong.
