    The Chain takes the cake easily for me.

    There's a lot to like about Tusk between the drums, the marching band, and that moment when they really come in at 1:36. The Chain, however, just has such a great melody throughout that encourages me to sing along. Then when that base line starts at about 3:05, oh boy.

    For the first umpty years of my life... I would have said Tusk!  No thought needed at all.  (age spoiler)  I was a kid when that video came out and thought it was SO COOL when they performed on some award show and the USC band came marching in!  I've always loved marching bands with their drumlines. <3

    Fast forward a bit... GOTG2... So, yeah, the theme there with Yandu and Peter... that hits very close to home.  I am an adopted dad.  My son is my son.  Biology or not.  I decided when me and his mom got married that he would always be MY son, period.  A little more background: One of my good friends growing up was adopted and never felt like he fully belonged in his adopted home.  Then later on when he got older and met his biological family he never felt loved or included there either.  :(  So, yeah... that whole movie tugged at personal heart strings.  Especially when my son told me I'm his Mary Poppins... <3

    Tusk had a hell of a head start but The Chain has definitely made up a LOT of ground to the point they're neck and neck now.

    Hmm, I'm the only Tusk vote so far. And it is indeed a tough call.

    Had to go look which was released first (The Chain).

    They fought like cats and dogs, snorted as much cocaine as they could and released one of the best selling albums of all time. Interesting though, the The Chain wasn't one of the main singles off that release, but the full stops in it really makes the rest of the song that much better.

    Voted Tusk tho for the way the intensity ramps up, and yeah....drum line and horns!

    I can't vote against The Chain.  Rumors is one of my top five favorite albums of all time.

    Voted Tusk tho for the way the intensity ramps up, and yeah....drum line and horns!

    They STILL fight like cats and dogs.  I think they cleaned up off the drugs (prob just switched to pills, lol).

    Indeed, Mike Cambell needed a new gig after TP died.

    Hey! Another vote for Tusk.

    Maybe, but I'm old school.

    Song battle has promise, and Mac has been in news plenty. So they're still relevant imo...and active.
