Best: The most superior. Of the highest quality, excellence or standing. http://dictionary.reference.com...

The burden of proof rests heavily on my opponent.

Lets get started.
So my opponent is saying that the band Lonely Island is better than any band in existence. Aish that is a big burden to prove and I highly doubt anyone could prove it.

For one thing my opponents tastes in music are not at all substantial evidence.

Judging by the video http://www.youtube.com... their genre is rap. Also they use filthy language. I for one don't like rap much, as do many, and I don't like filthy language, as do many. You will find that most people like rock. There are also many other genres like hip hop, jazz, electronica, metal, heavy metal, screamo, indie, classical, opera and many more.

In this poll [http://www.lazylightning.org...] the people liked, in order; rock, indie, country, other. Rap wasn't mentioned on the list so I assume some of the twelve percent who chose other had rap as their favorite.

In this poll [http://www.kh-vids.net...] of the three choices rap is last.

As rap isn't even the best genre of music how can this band be the best band in the world?

I wouldn't call it rap but do you see how many views they have. And what do you mean rocks the most popular. If you go to Itunes, most of the songs in the top 100 are rap, and for youtube, they have the most views (except for Justin Bieber in which girls view whore it)

It has about 2million views. This vid has 84million.
So I guess Michael Jackson is the best singer in the world. And is 40 times as good as Lonley Island. (sarcastic of course).


//If you go to Itunes, most of the songs in the top 100 are rap,//

But I thought my opponent said Lonely Island isn't a rap band. So whatever they are I guess their genre isn't as popular as rap.

And please provide links.


//and for youtube, they have the most views (except for Justin Bieber in which girls view whore it)//

Haha that's funny as I showed Michael Jackson has 40 times as many views.



My opponent has done nothing to prove Lonley Island is the best band.

There most viewed video has more than 100 million views followed by 55 million. I said there not all rap but they have some. Michael Jackson doesn't have as much views as there songs. Go to there channel and search by most viewed.

How does that prove they're the best band in the world?

My opponent has provided very little proof.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro constantly used homophones like "there" and "they're" incorrectly. Con provided sources, unlike pro. Con's arguments made more sense than the pro's.
