SHOWDOWN: U.S. Royalty vs. American Royalty

Alas, there is no street beef between the bands U.S. Royalty and American Royalty. There are only questions: Which band is more regal? Which one best represents the U.S. of A.? Sadly, this AWESOMELY EXCLUSIVE CHART doesn't help much:

HOMETOWN
D.C. L.A.
MUSICAL STYLE
Slightly tarnished AM gold
with literary aspirations
Mildly eccentric indie-electro
with pop tendencies
MOST RECENT RELEASE

PRIMARY VICE
Fashion Techno
UNSCIENTIFICALLY COLLECTED BLOG QUOTE
"Unlike some albums where I feel one emotion or another when the last notes fade, after listening to Mirrors I simply feel satisfied." –Music Bleep "... the music doesn’t sound like something that would go over well on a Martha’s Vineyard vacation and that’s a good thing." –Potholes In My Blog
SAMPLE LYRIC
"They offered me their finest wine/We danced and drank to pass the time" ("Equestrian") "Don't you/Try to tell me/What I already know/Yeah" ("Levrolution")
POTENTIAL ADVANTAGE IN A BACKSTAGE ALTERCATION
U.S. Royalty has four members, American Royalty has only two or three A peace offering of medicinal Venice Beach nugs?
ON-THE-RECORD STATEMENT ABOUT THE OTHER BAND
The band was asked for a comment, but so far has not provided one. "We think it's a funny co-incidence, and it's come up before recently as we've both begun to garner national buzz. We think they're a great band and respect what they're doing even though we've got really different sounds."
