Cage Match for today we put new champ Smile Empty Soul against Saliva for our year 2003.

Smile Empty Soul jumps in this week after beating Cold with “Bottom of a Bottle” off their self-titled album in 2003. This album did great things for the band coming in at 94 on the top albums Billboard chart but seemed to not spur any other greats. And they are still around but get no radio love. Check out the video below.

Saliva came straight out of Mississippi jump in to fight with their 2003 hit "Always." It was on the album Back Into Your System and hit #1 On the Modern Rock Tracks. This song was Saliva's best hit to date. Song below.
