Those long haired Canadian rock and rollers are at it again!

AEW's Chris Jericho and former lead vocalist of Skid Row Sebastian Bach got into a heated exchange on Twitter yesterday. Jericho was looking a little bit like Sebastian Bach on AEW Dynamite last night which someone posted about on Twitter including tags to both men. Bach said he gets it a lot and Jericho joked that good looking guys look alike. But, it broke down in Tulsa... Or, Jacksonville... Or, on Twitter, I guess, from there.

However it devolved from there, as Bach accused Jericho of not actually singing his songs as part of the band Fozzy.

He wrote: “He definitely does considering that he mimes to a tape.”

Jericho replied: “I sing my ass off every night dude. Do you really wanna go there? Wow! My band is more popular than @sebastianbach !!”

It only continued from there, with Jericho at one point refusing to let it go and challenging Bach to a ‘sing off’.

He added: “Hi… I’m Chris “Milli Vanilli” Jericho. I have 5 top 30 singles in the last five years w my band @FOZZYROCK. I’m a huge fan of @sebastianbach … who had 3 top 30 singles 30 years ago. I always admired him as a singer and a friend! And I still do. I’ve seen the derogatory comments towards me from somebody I considered to be a friend. So with that in mind, I’ll be happy to have a SING OFF w @sebastianbach! No effects, no tuning, no bullshit. Bas is a great singer…but I’m better. You’ve got my number dude. Call me. I’ve never mimed anything ever! And I don’t use *** in a tweet ever. I will f***ing sing in your face anytime, anyplace dude. I’ve been a fan & a defender of u since day one…but don’t u ever question my rock abilities! And leave wrestling out of this…I can hit a G4 brah!”

It should be noted that Sebastian Bach was the lead singer for Skid Row from 1988 to 1996. He has been a solo artist since then releasing multiple solo albums with various degrees of success but none as large as his Skid Row days. "Slave to the Grind" was the first heavy metal album of the modern tracking system of music sales to be certified #1 on the charts in 1991.

As a member of Skid Row, it is estimated that Skid Row sold 20 million albums. Being fair as record sales are different in the modern era with digital downloads, that still is considerably more than Fozzy has sold.
