    BUSH! (The band, not George H.W., George W., Neil, Barbara, Jeb, etc.)

    Since Bush were pretty big in the mid-to-late 90's, when NIN were really popular, I'm sort of surprised that there isn't a thread about them.

    I thought they were lame in their heyday, a sort of second-rate Nirvana. However, over the years I have reevaluated their music and am now a pretty big fan. I would still give them a second-tier status, behind their 90's peers, like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, AIC, Soundgarden, STP, Smashing Pumpkins, NIN, etc. That said, they have some really great singles ("Everything Zen," "Greedy Fly," "Sound of Winter," etc.) and their albums are all pretty solid. When you see how rock radio was dominated by nu-metal, emo, and bands that were pretty generic in the years that followed, Bush look even better in hindsight. While their biggest singles are on the first two albums, I feel that, overall, their post-reunion albums are better.

    I saw Bush last night in Boston. They are touring with Chevelle and completely blew them off the stage. They stuck with all the hits and singles from their entire career and Gavin looks and sounds awesome for a guy who is 50 years old and is a very underrated frontman, imo, very charismatic. They are awesome live, very high energy and just a lot of fun.
