Meat Loaf, ‘You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth’ vs. Alice Cooper, ‘School’s Out': Greatest Summer Song Battle
Meat Loaf and Alice Cooper have pulled off some impressive victories in our Greatest Summer Song battle, but now they'll have to face each other for the right to make it to the next round -- and you get to determine the winner.
After starting with 32 of classic rock’s best summertime songs, we’re now down to four. Once again, it's time for you to cast your votes and keep cutting that number in half until we arrive at the greatest summer song ever made.
Meat Loaf has been steadily building steam throughout the competition, narrowly beating Judas Priest's "Wild Nights, Hot and Crazy Days" in the opening round before pulling off back-to-back landslides, first making quick work of the Cars' "Magic" before moving on to crush Van Halen's "Summer Nights."
Cooper, meanwhile, has had his own moments of triumph, starting off by defeating Y&T's "Summertime Girls" by a wide margin before squeaking past Journey's "Stone in Love" and scoring a fairly narrow victory against Bob Seger's "Night Moves."
So which song will make it through to the finals? That’s up to you. You can listen to both songs below so that you can make an informed decision, and you can vote once per hour until voting closes on Aug. 17 at 11:59PM ET. Your choice for the Greatest Summer Song of all time will be revealed on Aug. 25, 2015.
