It's hard to decide because they are equally matched. I used to be a bigger fan of The Guess but I switched over to Bachman Turner Overdrive lately. One of my favorite songs of The Guess Who is No Sugar Tonight. I don't use sugar in my coffee or tea so the song gets stuck in my head. What I like about BTO is the Les Paul/Stratocaster guitar combo, I've seen other bands like Pearl Jam that use that combo, you have best of both worlds, single coil and humbucker pick-up sound.

it's a tough call especially where the Guess Who changed members quite a bit, but the Burton Cummings years are golden. BTO is pretty awesome too, but they didn't have enough moustache power.

The Guess Who. There "Share the Land" album destroys anything BTO would ever make.

Guess Who were far more diverse and had the better songs. They could go from classics such as the snarling, "American Women", and ballads, "These Eyes", to goofy novelty hits (cough, cough, cough) "Clap for the Wolfman". BTO on the other were pretty one-dimensional, but they did produce the most under-rated riff in the history of rock music.



Badass viking black metallists Enslaved even snagged it for one of their epics. I think they're even screaming "Not Fragile", but I can't tell for sure. lol.

The Guess Who. More depth, breadth, and longer staying power.
