Ok, these are the 2 gods of the 60's to dis dyin day. I just read a real stanlike article on I'm Not There that made me consider boycotting the film. One thing i hate, even more dan hipsters, is stans. Get that shit away from me. It's not that I don't even like Dylan, I like what I have hear from him, but whereas a hipster can never make me hate an artist, a stan has that capability. So I prety much hate dylan at this point. Her is what a hipster will say. " oh, this shit is totally rad man, far out". Now that shit is comical and annoying, but it ultimately harmless. But a stan will say " Dylan had songwriting abilities beyone anyopther songwriter ever". Dont that shit make u mad? this dumb stan just shitted on ur favorite artist. So much so that i go and listen to Dylanm to prove how dum this stan is and clown some of his lyrics and bad poetry. I mean, this dudes poems is str8 outta 6th form college over her in da UK. See how a stan can spoil shit? i would have gave Bob Zimmermannikis the benefit of da doubt if not 4 a stan. Anyway, the 2 people that get this loyalty to me is Dylan and LEnnon. So who is the best? PS The Solution>>>>Any Dylan album.

Got to go with Dylan. Lennon isn't even as great as McCartney or George Harrison. So, it's really no contest.

Even if Lennon wasn't as great as McCartney or Harrison that still leaves a whole lot of room for him to be better than Dylan, imo.

Red is right

This one was tough. I voted Dylan because I listened to him more recently. Both are great on their game. Dylan had some boring stuff at times, but he could be really powerful on the next track, it's hit or miss for me and when the harmonica gets to high it ticks me. Lennon wrote catchier songs, but he dead.
But among the jackals, the panthers, the bitch hounds, The apes, the scorpions, the vultures, the serpents, The yelping, howling, growling, crawling monsters, In the filthy menagerie of our vices, There is one more ugly, more wicked, more filthy! Although he makes neither great gestures nor great cries, He would willingly make of the earth a shambles And, in a yawn, swallow the world; He is Ennui! His eye watery as though with tears, He dreams of scaffolds as he smokes his hookah pipe. You know him reader, that refined monster, Hypocritish reader, my fellow, my brother!

I fully support people doing drugs on the streets. I'm sick and tired of people being selfish by doing drugs in the privacy of their own homes. Do it on the streets where you can share with your friends and neighbors. It's the Christian thing to do.
