So, there's a hardcore band from Staten Island, NY called Vice
. And there's also a newer hardcore band in Ohio called Vice. Now neither of these bands should be confused with defunct hardcore band, The Vice (or the magazine, for that matter).
Anyway, the older Vice is apparently pissed at the new Vice for using the same name; an understandable situation. However, seems that when the newer, Ohio Vice didn't readily agree to give up their name last month, the NY Vice resorted to some old-fashioned threats of thuggery. We spoke to a nice fellow from the Staten Island Vice this morning, and although it seems that those messages are indeed real, we weren't able to determine how serious the threats therein were. Either way, if you're interested in any of this, you can click on the image below to read the relevant exchange.
Now, we'll assume that neither band will abide by this, but we thought we'd attempt to let you guys settle this one. In a perfect world, the better band should keep the name, right? Right. So listen to a song from each Vice below, then vote for the better band:
Vice - New York
Vice - Ohio
