Both these songs were released in December 1977, on albums by respective bands. Take your pick.

Aerosmith.  That's one of their best songs.  

I would vote for Symphony X's Charon over Kings and Queens, though.

Love both songs, but I'm going with Sails of Charon. That intro with the Uli Roth solo is just mind-boggling :guitar:

That is one of the best Scorpions songs maybe THE best. Kings and Queens is probably in my top 20 Aerosmith songs for sure maybe top 15. So Scorpions take this one.

Yes. I am not a big Scorpions fan. I enjoy them from time to time. With that said, "The Sails of Charon" is the best thing I heard by Scorpions.

I love Aerosmiths earlier stuff, but that solo at the beginning of Sails of Charon clinches it.

I love both songs, and Uli's guitar in Sails is incredible

But Kings And Queens is in my Top 5 Aerosmith songs and part of my favorite Aerosmith album .. As much as I love the Scorps, I cannot vote against Kings And Queens

Aerosmith wins this one

For me, every Aerosmith album up to and including Pump > anything done by Scorpions (whom I do enjoy).

I absolutely disagree. Night in the Ruts, Rock in a Hard Place, Done with Mirrors and Permanent Vacation don't hold a candle to either Taken by Force, Lovedrive or Blackout.

And Uli Jon Roth > Perry + Whitford
