If you're Chad Kroeger, at this point you either learn to laugh at yourself or you spend your nights curled up in a ball crying.https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/9504215/nickelback-parody-photograph-video-google-photos-ad
The era of self-parody has begun. Quarantine has got everyone all fucked up.
I probably should have said Creed were dorks from the massive success of Human Clay on cause I feel like people generally liked "My Own Prison" and "One" but I don't they were distinguishable too much from the Filter (or Days of the New!) of the world until "Higher" crossed over to Top 40 radio and Scott Stapp started jamming with Robby Krieger what not.7th grade me thought “My Own Prison” was a pretty cool song. But I didn’t know anything about them and I was surprised when my brother told me they were a religious band. Creed came out with their first record around the same time as Days of the New and I was sure DOTN was going to be more successful. Unfortunately Scott got to the meth later than Travis.
I used to be a big Days of the New fan. Not so much nowadays, but I still think they are one of the least offensive of the post grunge bands.I can confirm that Days of the New was one of the countless late '90s rock bands that everyone thought could be next big deal. Turns out peak of their relevancy was Travis Meeks' appearance on Intervention.
According to his Wikipedia entry, one of his last arrests was right in Portland, Maine. Good for us, I guess?
