Resolved Question: Johnny Cash or Elvis
I think Johnny Cash is far better than Elvis Presley
I think he beats Elvis with his music any day, Johnny Cash is a true artist.
He sings from the heart and soul and his music is incredible, and he is very flexible in genres too.
He's also a true legend in music, definitely an inspiration.
He was also a great man, he's done a lot for many people.
I love his character, he would play his music for inmates in U.S. prisons and they would go wild for it! that is beyond badass : ))

Resolved Question: Do you like Elvis
I think he was talented and kind of revolutionized rock, and without him practically none of today's AND yesterday's artists would be here, so for people who say they hate him, he commands a certain respect, just like the Beatles, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Tupac, and others for what they've contributed to the music world.
But I dislike the fact that he stole music from black people and credited himself for it. I heard that he was racist too (not for sure, but I'm convinced that he was).
I don't listen to much of his songs, but I do like a few, like his Christmas songs and Hound Dog and a few others.
By the way, why is Google NOT doing some kind of Elvis-related theme today? It's his birthday!
Bonus Jonas: Do you think that Chuck Berry or Little Richard would be called the Kings of Rock n Roll if they weren't black? I'm kind of convinced of that, because black people created rock and roll, and Chuck and Little Richard came first. Just simply explain (in your INSIDE voice, no need to go all ghetto on me) why or why not? Stranger in New York-how dare you call me a racist btch. You don't know me. And I'm black, so I don't know what you're trying to say, but I'm not racist, so don't be an idiot, it was just a joke, you moron. You sound like a fool.

Resolved Question: Michael Jackson vs. Elvis
I ask this question, but not to be disrespectful in any manner. I personally feel Jackson and Presley were both phenomenal performers, but whose death do you feel was "bigger?" M.J. or E.P.
