Which one rocks harder ?  

 

Spandau Ballet.

 

Seriously, these songs...if you left either of them on my lawn, I'd tell you to clean up after your dog.

Final Countdown sucks.

Eye of the Tiger sucks a little less.

For Wrestlemania I promotions we had Hulk encouraging Mr T doing his bench press yelling "Eye of the Tiger" and both of them trying not to laugh

 

that gives the edge for me

Funny, I just watched 1 - 4 with my 11 year old a couple weeks ago.

He keeps walking around the house saying "I want you...and you...any you...and ESPECIALLY you!!!"

Says Apollo is his favorite movie character.

I love all those songs.  Plus throw this one in for the cheesy glam rock genre:

Saw them in Elmira last summer. Them and White Lion opened for Queensryche. No one was paying any attention to Autograph until the encore when they played this haha!

That’s because that’s their only good song.

 

Did Queensryche have their original singer, Geoff Tate?   I saw them, again, at a free show at Mohegan Sun 3 years ago but without him.  They were good but it wasn’t the same.

No more Tate unfortunately but valiant effort by the new guy! Very good job!

 

and Agree on Autograph completely but it was hilarious, like a bunch of ants teaming up on a melted popsicle

Queensryche was Tate and the guitar playing of Wilton and DeGarmo. DeGarmo left awhile ago. Not the same band anymore really. 

 

And it wouldn’t surprise me if nobody knew that was their song until they started playing it.

Start at the :30 sec mark.  Watch it through and feel the desire to rip someone's head off.  

 

And definitely Eye of the Tiger.

Gotta give the nod to Survivor and Jim Peterik based on general body of work

Eye of the Tiger rocks more.  Especially since it will be remembered alongside Rocky which always pumps people up.  

 

However, when I worked in a bar at last call my manager would always play The Final Countdown.  For that reason, I will always have a special place for it in my heart.

Had to shut it off before I ripped out my eyes and ears off.

As hokey as that song (Eye) seems now, nothing was worse than this scene in the movie:

I know. Just terrible film. It was always good to watch for a laugh.

Agree the 2 songs referenced in the OP are horrible.

 

Just thinking about those songs requires me to cleanse my musical palate. 

 

For this type of genre, I recommend this:

 

Sie is der hellste Stern von allen!

Neither, but Final Countdown reminds me of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, a team I truly loathed.... so I will say Tiger.
