Cage Match: Alien Ant Farm vs. The Darkness [VIDEO, POLL]
I love doing our Cage Match around one-hit wonders. These two bands — Alien Ant Farm and The Darkness — made it big, but only for a little bit. I still like ‘em, though.First band up for consideration is Alien Ant Farm. These guys came out of Califorina and started touring in 1995, and surprisingly still tour today. These guys had a post-grunge and nu-metal sound. They had their big one hitter in 2001 with the remake of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.” It did very well on radio and was also on WWE’s Tough Enough.

Band two is The Darkness. These guys are from the UK and kicked off around 2000 and rolled to 2006, then took a break but currently are out touring again. The debut album was ’Permission to Land‘ and wielded a top hit with “I Believe in a Thing Called Love.”
