In 1995, the Rose Garden celebrated its opening with an inaugural concert by David Bowie, with Nine Inch Nails opening. Over the next 18 years, the arena enjoyed many more high-profile concerts, NCAA basketball games, bull-riding contests, several Disney on Ice shows and zero Blazers championships. 

Earlier this month, the Rose Garden changed its name to the Moda Center. Friday's sold-out Taylor Swift concert is the Moda's first show.

What does that mean for the stadium's future? To determine who's got the better mojo, we decided to do a side-by-side comparison of the Thin White Duke and the Alarmingly Thin White Girl. Based on the implication of these results, all we can say is: Enjoy the dynasty, Blazers fans!
