    Creed had riffs for days. Mark Tremonti was the first artist to get his own guitar with Paul Reed Smith, even before Carlos Santana who was the first notable player to use them (he was the 2nd), and I can't be mad at that.

    Liked Creed's first two album, liked most of what I heard from Alter Bridge, they are a slightly better-than-average modern rock band, wasn't too into Tremonti's solo albums.

    Creed would have been perfectly fine if it weren't for Stapp.

    And I would agree that they are the definition of unobjectionable rock.

    ETA: To further this point, I just listened to to their top recommended song on Google Music and, while I have heard it and don't think it's bad, had absolutely no clue it was them.

    Lol, forgot about that video...

    The video for "With arms wide open" is also terrible, not to mention their lousy cover art...

    That makes sense. I can see him doing more acoustic music if he were still around. Maybe a weird, folksy project.

    I'm listening to the Rivers Cuomo solo stuff and there's really no reason to make people pay for this.

    I think that it should be changed to "God Bless America" which is a much better song, imho.

    i'd much rather, if we're going to have a national anthem, have it be something that's not religious. like john mellencamp's "aint that america"

    that was a joke, but seriously, separation of church and state, folks. it's important. the national anthem shouldn't mention any kind of god.

    I am in effect saying Surfacing by Slipknot, but really 5 Finger Prostate Exam is terrible. They could be a decent rock band as their covers are the best thing they've done but fuck if dude isn't ... generic.

    There's a funny bit in Michael Moore's The Big One where he suggests it should be changed to "We Will Rock You"

    Slipknot's People = Shit should be the anthem for the whole world!

    Anything by Aretha Franklin.

    to clarify, I mean that any song she has recorded should be our national anthem. Can you imagine everyone singing Freeway Of Love before baseball games?

    it's good but there are a couple songs that i'm "meh" on, and the singles are so overplayed that it's hard for me to enjoy them. "soma" and "silverfuck" are 100% my favorites.

    my controversial opinion - john lennon's "imagine" is one of the least enjoyable songs ever written. the lyrics aren't just overly-saccharine, they're STUPID. and they're also super hypocritical coming from that dude. the music is grating, especially the vocal melody. it's been used for so many awful shows/movies/commercials that just reinforces my hatred for it.

    if i was given the option between never hearing "imagine" again, or never hearing "don't stop believing" again, i would choose "imagine" because i hate it so much, i'd rather have to hear "don't stop believing". i would actually rather have to hear "don't stop believing" once a day for the rest of my life than ever have to hear "imagine".

    whoo i feel better now.

    Totally agree about Imagine. I found this article about it, which also has a list of 337 songs that people also hate

    I also think those two songs are the best on the album. They're god-tier Pumpkins.
    The end of Hummer is great, too.

    It *is* a good LP, it's just not as good as everyone claims it to be. I actually think Gish is better.

    The second film had an interesting message.

    Everything's not awesome
    Everything's not cool
    I am so depressed
    Everything's not awesome

    Whoa, I think I finally get Radiohead
    Bro, you should check out Elliot Smith
    What's the point? There's no hope
    Awesomeness was a pipedream
    Aye, my spirits be at the bottom of the sea
    Love's not real, I just wanna eat carbs
    Pass the ice cream
    I am not a thing you can just use
    To fill emotional voids with
    Stop, everyone, okay, just listen

    Everything's not awesome
    But that doesn't mean that it's hopeless and bleak
    Everything's not awesome
    But in my heart, I believe (I believe)

    We can make things better if we stick together
    (If we stick together)
    Side by side, you and I, we will build it together
    (Yeah, build it together)
    Build it together (Together forever)
    All together now

    This song's gonna get stuck inside your
    This song's gonna get stuck inside your
    This song's gonna get stuck inside your
    This song's gonna get stuck inside your
    Heart

    Everything's not awesome
    Things can't be awesome all of the time
    It's an unrealistic expectation
    But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try
    To make everything awesome
    In a less idealistic kind of way
    We should maybe aim for not bad
    'Cause not bad, well that would be real great

    Everything is better when we stick together
    (We stick together)
    Side by side, you and I, we will sing it together
    (Always together)
    Party forever (Together)

    This song's gonna get stuck inside your
    This song's gonna get stuck inside your
    Heart

    Same. But I really don't like the Beatles....at all. Just not a fan.

    True story: there's some weird neighbor that loves blasting Chris Stapleton's Tennessee Whisky....4-5 times a night when they're in their pool (it's Florida), which is 2-3 nights a week. Last night I was so fed up with it, that I thought I would get perspective...and decide that as far as songs go, it wasn't the worst. I landed on Aerosmiths' I Don't Want to Miss a Thing as the worst song that could be continuously played so much.

    I still think the neighbor needs a note put at their door.

    I believe that it's been determined that this is the worst song ever:


    Someone actually listened to it 324 times in a 24 hour period.

    And the worst part is Glace Slick was pretty awesome in the 1960's.
