Welcome to the jungle, we've got punch and games.

Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got punch and games.

Everybody has hard choices to make about how they’re going to spend their weekend. Some choices are harder than others. This week’s showdown: The last truly great sleazy rock band vs. the last white rapper to hit the charts while Eminem didn’t have much going on. FIGHT!

Guns N’ Roses Macklemore
What: The remains of one of the last, great, authentic rock ‘n’ roll bands. The remains of a haircut gone horribly awry. Advantage: GnR.
When/where: The Joint, Saturday and Sunday. Surrender, Sunday. Advantage: Push.
They’re gonna make you: Bleed. Dance awkwardly at a mass wedding. Advantage: GnR.
Please don’t ask about: Slash. The Professor Macklemore years. Advantage: GnR.
Offensive to: Cops, blacks, immigrants, gays, Iranians (?!). Jews. Advantage: Oh come on, we’re not answering this one.
Cover versions: Sheryl Crowe. Ed Sheeran. Advantage: Macklemore. EVERYTHING sounds better with “No Diggity.”
