Title: Stupid Bullshit - Any and all Discussion of Hinder, Nickelback, etc goes here
Post by: Nymyzys on December 03, 2013, 12:28:06 PM
Hinder fired their frontman because he couldn't stay out of rehab.

Three Days Grace's frontman quit several months ago because he had "non-life-threatening" medical issues, only to immediately announce he was forming a solo project.

This exists:

I don't hate Nickelback nearly as much as the rest of the internet.  I have fond memories of Leader of Men.  But, there you have it, regardless.

Nickelback sucks, sure. But it's annoying at how the band (along with Creed) is just a lazy shorthand for "bad taste" when discussing music. For instance, if you're on a band's message board and offer a criticism of a new album, you'll get the fanboy reply, "THEN GO LISTEN TO NICKELBACK AND CREED RECORDS!!!" in an attempt to discredit the other's opinion and shut down the whole conversation. As if the chasm between Band A and Nickelback/Creed didn't exist. "Hey, I didn't like this; I must be a Nickelback fan." Sure.

You know what, for as much crap as Creed gets, I have to admit that Mark Tremonti is a pretty damn good guitarist.

There, I said it.

I've gained an unironic appreciation of Nickelback recently. I wouldn't go see them live or buy an album but they're good at what they do.

Now some of their knockoffs (like the other bands mentioned in the OP) are legitimately awful. Butt rock isn't one of my favorite genres but Creed and Nickelback are obviously the best at what they do.

You know what's a goddamn awful band of this genre that I was just reminded of (because they just came to Maine a few months back with maybe one original member that wasn't the singer)...Saliva! I wish I could forget about them but whenever I watch a WWE PPV from the '00s, they do the theme like 60% of the time!

Creed's 2009 album, Full Circle, is actually really good.  Not good by Creed standards, but just good in general and worth a listen. Mark Tremonti's solo album from 2012 is also quite good and he's actually an above-average vocalist.

I've just always found it funny that some of the same people that bash Creed, will turn around and suck off Alter Brige. I like both bands pretty equally.

It's because Alter Bridge didn't rely on "clean opening, FEEDBACK, decent rock riff ruined by Scott Stapp's very presence" for every song.

Myles Kennedy is also a legit good rock vocalist. It's a little silly that one would hate one and like the other but it's not completely ludicrous.

You know what band I'm surprised doesn't get Creed levels of hate? Slipknot. They combine all of the worst aspects of Metallica and KISS. There are very, very few bands I hate or can't mount some sort of half hearted defense for(I even occasionally enjoy the Insane Clown Posse. The Insane Clown Posse, PEOPLE) and they're one of them.

Nickelback is fucking harmless and always has been. I went to a show at the Joe back in 2006 where it was all similar bands and my girlfriend and I were among the oldest there who didn't have kids, and all the kids were using cell phone screens rather than lighters for the ballads. They're just straight up modern rock bands who are cool to hate, to make judgemental douchebags' own tastes in music look better, and jealousy of these bands' successes.

Hell another band who got this treatment (and still got it until very recently when it suddenly became cool to like them) was Rush, who got fucked with for the better part of 40 years until 2010 more or less, when they put out their documentary. This kind of thing is nothing new. Every so often a band comes along that for one reason or another, people just love to hate for no good reason.

Slipknot was a big part of my rebellious teens, so I listen to them with nostalgia earphones more than anything.  Their drummer is one hilariously talented individual.

Years ago, I'd get angry whenever I'd hear a Creed or Nickelback song. Nowadays the only band that boils my blood is Train.


Re: Rush-They were one of several Progressive Rock bands (including Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Yes) who used to be "cool" to hate. I think ELP are the only ones who still get flack.

Slipknot escape it because they weren't ripping off Pearl Jam but forgetting that "credibility" thing. Joey Jordison being an insanely talented drummer certainly helps, as well, and an argument can be made that they're the ones really responsible for the semi-mainstream acceptance of extreme metal from the early 00's. Mick Thompson is also an underrated and underutilized guitarist to boot, and I think Corey Taylor gets shit on unjustly when it comes to his versatility as a vocalist. Basically, they were a gimmick band that struck at just the right time and (purposefully) spaced out their releases enough to make them always seem fresh in the mainstream rock world.

That they also sounded very different from their "nu-metal" contemporaries (with maybe only System of a Down coming close to the level of intensity) doesn't hurt their case. I think 90% of their stuff is shit, but I'll admit that a lot of their songs would be great metal tunes if they didn't rely on sing-song choruses that completely change the feel. To put it further, they're basically a child's introduction to real metal, similar to how Motley Crue was in the 80's.

Hell another band who got this treatment (and still got it until very recently when it suddenly became cool to like them) was Rush, who got fucked with for the better part of 40 years until 2010 more or less, when they put out their documentary. This kind of thing is nothing new. Every so often a band comes along that for one reason or another, people just love to hate for no good reason.
The big difference was that Rush was popular for being amazing on a technical level. Nickelback are popular for being lowest common denominator tripe. They are the Journey of their generation: completely manufactured, soulless, and disposable bubblegum pop rock of the era that went from virtually beloved by all to the butt (rock) of every joke, and then nostalgia will kick in and people will listen to them because it's "fun."

Yeah, in twenty years, people will look back at Creed and Nickelback the same way, we look at Journey and Styx now. Still hated by critics and music snobs but beloved by the masses.

Although, Journey is better than Nickelback in every facet of the imagination. Songwriting, playing, vocals, etc.  And I'm pretty sure BUTT is going to have a stroke when he reads Laz comparing them.

Journey are most definitely a better band than Nickelback. I won't even attempt to argue that. They're still fucking terrible and many people felt that way up until a few years ago.

I agree with that assessment when it comes to "Core", but I think afterwards they started to step out of that and take influences from 70's rock and the like.
Title: Re: Stupid Bullshit - Any and all Discussion of Hinder, Nickelback, etc goes here
Post by: Kamala For Kamala Harris on December 05, 2013, 09:47:29 AM
It's fine for bands to display their influences but STP is way too obvious in cribbing from people. They never had their own sound. Their catalogue was somewhat diverse but everything sounded like somebody else. The same thing I'd say is true of Lenny Kravitz, who is another person on a lot of my friends "Most Hated Rock Singers/Bands lists" although I personally never thought he was that bad.

The thing that bothers me most about modern rock as opposed to the arena rock bands of the past is there is really no sense of joy. I don't expect all music (or even the majority) of music to be positive but a lot of the popular rock bands of the past seemed to have something resembling a sense of humor. You could tell bands like KISS, Van Halen, and Motley Crue were having fun and loved what they did but for Nickelback, Creed, Stone Temple Pilots, etc. snorting coke and fucking strippers seems like part of the job and they're just punching a clock like they worked at a bank.

People fucking LOVED Journey back in the early to mid 80s. I think they became something to make fun of when Steve Perry couldn't sing anymore, and they hired a Filipino lead singer of a Journey cover band.

And Kamala, you hit it on the head, but they were just following the blueprints of the bands that came before.

It was WAY before that man. Once "Don't Stop Believing" became a staple in bars, people couldn't resist writing them off. If you ask even the most casual music listener if they know any Journey songs, the only one they can always name is that one (or "Any Way You Want It" but that's another story...).

The only Journey song I like is "Separate Ways." The intro, the build, the way the music has a sense of urgency that Steve Perry's voice perfectly accents, the hilarious video...it may be the perfect pop rock song.

Journey embraced a lot of things that weren't "hip" at the height of their popularity, and now, in the 21st century, those same things even the more forgiving sort tend to find dated and cheesy. It's a shame that the superficial aspects of their look and sound distract so many people from realizing that Journey crafted a number of really solid pop-rock songs. There's a few duds on

That article actually brings up a good point: Little if any of the rock music coming out today sounds like Nickelback, Seether etc. Nowadays bands are borrowing from EDM and shitty folk music instead of the plodding riffs and ugly lyrics of Theory of a Deadman and their ilk. Sure, someone like Nickelback will remain popular and sell a bunch of albums, but their days of dominance seem to be over.

Kravitz is a talented guitarist and a lot of his songs are catchy but his lyrics suck

Another thing that bothers me about him is his reluctance to embrace more of his hard rock influence and instead goes for straight bubblegum pop. His latest album featured Jay-Z and Drake when it probably should have had someone like Joe Perry or Eddie Van Halen.

I think Journey's peak of lameness was the '90s. They just came off as incredibly cheesy in the era of grunge. Though as I was about to write that, I remembered their reunion album (that I was going to dub "ill fated") in '96 was multi-platinum and "When You Love A Woman" was a huge adult contemporary hit/pretty big actual hit. Although it sounded more like Journey ripping off Bryan Adams than Journey.


"Photograph" is my favorite Nickelback song. Either that or "How You Remind Me". It's a nice throwback to the monster ballads of the late '80s/early '90s (another despised subgenre of rock).

I don't think Buckcherry is that bad. I think their attempt to ape the cock rockers of the '80s is too calculated but "Lit Up" is a really fun song.

Scott Stapp stated in an interview that "Creed 5" is 80% finished, but Mark Tremonti has no further interest in working on it.  This honestly depresses me.

Seether hooked me with "Gasoline". I dig them quite a bit.

Out of all the bands mentioned in this thread, I think Seether might be the worst. Just terrible, joyless (and tuneless and soulless) drivel. My cousin who has the most questionable taste in music I've ever encountered (he's a big defender of Van Halen III and nu-metal era Vanilla Ice) went to a Seether/Trapt concert in '03/'04 and said Seether was the worst band he's ever seen. That was quite the damning statement to me.

Now Trapt is a band that I hadn't thought about in a long time before this thread.

Hey Nyzmys (or anybody), how many lead singers have Drowning Pool had by now? I don't know any band that moved on faster from their singer's death than them. I think they just replaced the guy who replaced the replacement for the dead singer. Let the bodies hit the floor, indeed.

It's Drowning Pool's fourth lead singer. I mean Iced Earth is a band that has had it's share of revolving singers (and other members too) and Black Sabbath had Ozzy, Dio, Ian Gillian, Glenn Hughes, Tony Martin and a few other singers during tours.

Drowning Pool is on #4. The original died on their tour bus, #2 found God, not sure about #3, and now they're on #4.

#2 who I believe went by the name of Gong was actually my favorite, all things considered.

It's Drowning Pool's fourth lead singer. I mean Iced Earth is a band that has had it's share of revolving singers (and other members too) and Black Sabbath had Ozzy, Dio, Ian Gillian, Glenn Hughes, Tony Martin and a few other singers during tours.
I think Drowning Pool is different because their first (and arguably most famous) singer died and then they waited about three months to replace him.

Though in another (equally hated) genre, Quiet Riot is on their fourth lead singer since Kevin DuBrow died and the band has only been back together for three years!

Drowning Pool singer #3 went back to his original band SOiL, who are a decent hard rock outfit and certainly better than Drowning Pool. I remember listening to "Scars" quite a bit when I started high school.

TRAPT? Holy shit, you can never get away from "Headstrong" when it first hit. Out of all the generic hard rock single from the early 2000's, that may be the worst one.

Post by: Kamala For Kamala Harris on December 10, 2013, 03:42:58 AM
I was surprised to find out that Trapt is still together. I guess butt rock really is the modern (or well, '00s) version of '80s hair metal in that even the most marginal bands of the genre will always find them some dive bar to throw them a couple thousand bucks to play a gig there. WWE really overplayed the shit out of "Headstrong" when it was the theme for one of their PPVs back in the day. Even more so unusual and it led to a lifelong dissdain of that song.

Post by: Fall of Epic on December 10, 2013, 04:22:33 AM
It's funny because the song was played out before WWE even got their hands on it. They used it for the theme to June's Bad Blood '03 but the single actually came out the summer before in '02 and like I said before, there was no escaping it. Seemingly all my classmates, television commercials, and radio absolutely destroyed that song in months time and I was never crazy about it to begin with.

Another nominee for generic hard rock single of the early 00's? Adema's "Giving In". The band had their 15 minutes of fame only because the lead singer was related to the singer from Korn (half-brothers? cousins?). Ironically enough, Adema performed at the very first concert I attended way back in '02.

I saw Breaking Benjamin in 2010, and wasn't expecting much but it was honestly one of the best shows I've ever seen.  They were opening for Three Days Grace, but they set an impossible precedent. TDG was actually not bad even though I'm not a huge fan. They earned bonus points for playing the Apocalyptica song, "I Don't Care".

Seether hooked me with "Gasoline". I dig them quite a bit.

When I saw that beauty queen
Watched her paint her face on
I wanna be the one unclean
That she wipes her ass on

Out of all the bands mentioned in this thread, I think Seether might be the worst. Just terrible, joyless (and tuneless and soulless) drivel. My cousin who has the most questionable taste in music I've ever encountered (he's a big defender of Van Halen III and nu-metal era Vanilla Ice) went to a Seether/Trapt concert in '03/'04 and said Seether was the worst band he's ever seen. That was quite the damning statement to me.
Seether are like the ultimate soundtrack for disturbed men who harbor violent revenge fantasies towards women. As awful as Nickelback are, they at least sound like they want you to have fun. Seether is music by horrible people for horrible people.

Re: Drowning Pool-I remember after 9/11, a lot of radio stations banned the song "Bodies". Which is fine by me because the band (and the song) always sounded like Nu Metal taken to it's knuckle dragging next level.

My cousin who has the most questionable taste in music I've ever encountered (he's a big defender of Van Halen III and nu-metal era Vanilla Ice)

I'm not a defender of Van Halen III, but I do (or did) own V-Ice's Hard to Swallow on CD.  I paid a few bucks for it at a used CD shop over ten years ago for the lolz, and it didn't disappoint.  Ice's lyrics are as hilarious as you'd expect ("what ya tryin' to do, make the ice melt?  Don't you know my cream is good for your health?) but Ross Robinson's production is actually about as good as nu-metal gets, since he had to work extra-hard to get something out of an artist who brings nothing to the table.  So while it's probably one of the most awesomely bad albums I've ever heard, there are elements of it that I like non-ironically.  Also, after all these years I can still recite some of Ice's verses from memory.

Here it is, a dope hit, Ice man comin' with a dope hit, cuz a few suckers need their throats slit, jealous cuz I went multi-platinum, now I'm gonna blast you in the head 'til you're dead with my Magnum lyrics, might be simplistic, but I'm no simp on the strength cuz I know how to pimp it, now I got grip and suckers keep sinking in my quicksand, Vanilla Ice vocal hitman, got the number three in my crosshairs, sittin' on the rooptop BOP BOP BOP and you fools drop, "Pop Goes The Weasel"* was a big fl-flop-flop, press didn't like your records cuz it wasn't hip hop-hop, but this ain't a dis cuz you sold gold, still I made a killin' cuz it ain't even a tenth of 11 million, givin' my rhymes spice, my DJ's on the slice, Vanilla Ice is back on the map with the wrath of the ICE KING



* Scratching is played in lieu of the phrase "Pop Goes the Weasel" for unknown reasons.  Upon doing some research, I learned that this verse, which is the first verse on Hard to Swallow, originally appeared on Ice's second album, the one after To The Extreme where he tried to sound like Cypress Hill.  In that version "Pop Goes the Weasel" was not removed, but it was also much closer to when the beef with 3rd Bass occurred.  By '98, that feud was old hat, and perhaps the reference to the song was removed, so as not to alert the discerning rap-metal fan that the lyrics were recycled from a previous recording.


FAKE EDIT:  Looking up the lyrics online I learned that it's actually "brothers didn't like your record," not "press," which, let's face it, is pretty rich coming from Rob Van Winkle.

TRUSTcompany's second album was alright.  They did an interesting cover of "Rock the Casbah".  In 2003, I took a video editing class in college. My final project was a WWE highlight video with "Downfall" for the background music.  I don't remember which particular clips I used, but I a few of the skaters in my glass were about to bust a nut when the video was over, wanting to know what the song was.

I looked them up and they released a new album as TRUSTcompany in 2011.   went ahead and downloaded it, and.....its a TRUSTcompany album.  I haven't heard the screamer yet, but it's really not terrible.

I brought them up earlier in the thread because they came to Maine about 3-4 months back.

I remember liking them slightly more than most of their butt rock brethren because I was deeply entrenched in my "Classic Rock That Rocks" phase in the early to mid '00s and they toured as an opening act for a couple of the dinosaur rock acts (I'm pretty sure they opened the Aerosmith/KISS tour that my parents wouldn't let me to go and I know they've toured with Motley Crue) and convinced myself they were a bit of a throwback. But really, those guys were just a slightly heavier version of Devil Without a Cause era Kid Rock.

My biggest memory of TRUSTCompany is that they looked/acted more like a mid '00s screamo band than an early '00s butt rock band. If they came out three years later, they might have ripped off Fall Out Boy instead of KoRn.

RE: STP

The similarities are there sure, but I always thought STP got a bit of a bad rep in the early-mid 90's. Any non-big four rock band that dropped during the height of grunge was automatically dismissed as Nirvana/Pearl Jam-lite.

Take Silverchair for example. Were labeled Nirvana rip-offs right from the start but had their own sound. I'll go on record and say that their third album, "Neon Ballroom" was one of my favorite albums of the 90's.

When it comes to riding on the coattails of grunge, I think the biggest offender might be Candlebox (who, I admittedly do enjoy and think "You" and "Best Friend" are great songs) though I think an argument could even be made that they were doing their own thing.

This kind of thing still happens today when a legitimately good record drops that happens to have similarities of a popular sound but is quickly dismissed as trying to cash in on the flavor of the month.

The GOTJ is pretty much the new Ozzfest. A festival a lot of bands think is beneath them but play them anyway for the big paydays.
The GOTJ is weird-it gets bands that would seem fitting if Ozzfest were still around (In This Moment and Emmure aka even fans of Oceano and Chelsea Grin think we suck) as well as bands that Ozzfest would reject if it were still around (Puddle of Mudd). That and a whole lot of Horrorcore rappers, some rappers who were big in the 90's/00's and guys that you are shocked would even show up (This year's being Wacka Flocka Flames, Machine Gun Kelly and Flostradamus, whose like a a decent sized EDM DJ/producer)

Puddle of Mudd deleted their Facebook page (http://www.metalinsider.net/social-networking/puddle-of-mudd-delete-facebook-page) after a shitty live show and lip synching. Also, did you know that Wes Scantlin has been arrested for cocaine possession and domestic abuse. Oh, that this band is performing at this year's Gathering of the Juggaloes? Now you know.

And Scantlin just got busted again for DUI! If he keeps this up then he's just gonna drift and die.

I just got an e-mail telling me that Scott Stapp is performing here in January. These are his first on-stage appearances since his meltdown last year. Who expects me to pay $30 to see him?

Local alt rock station just announced that Breaking Benjamin is going to be doing an acoustic show in Portland in February. An unplugged version of MY POLYAMOROUS FRAAANNND!? Sign me up!

My favorite Breaking Benjamin memory is when I saw Weezer (with a then virtually unknown, The Fray, as opening act) at La Colisee in Lewiston in '05, one of the security guards was bitching about how he had to miss the concert with Three Doors Down and "The Broken Benjamins" in Portland that same night.

lead singer of Nickelback tried out for a Christmas play, but didn't make it.



He never made it as a wise man.

Breaking Benjamin does a really good acoustic show.  You'll enjoy it if you go.

Wes Scantlin stopped a Puddle of Mudd show to accuse a fan in the crowd of stealing his house. Did you also know he was arrested last month for trespassing and vandalism? Now you do!

I'm genuinely baffled as to why Puddle of Mudd still gets work. This is like the 4th or 5th time Wes Scantlin's flipped the fuck out and left the stage and the venue had to refund everybody.


You think even the dumbest rock promoters would be like "Huh. Maybe not worth it." But I guess the dumbest rock promoters are pretty fucking dumb.

Puddle of Mudd & Buckcherry are up there for bands with the dumbest songs. At least, Nickelback sometimes shows some vague awareness of irony.

I still maintain that Buckcherry's "For The Movies" is a great song. Way better than 90% of the lunacy posted in this thread.

Puddle of Mudd opened for  Korn years ago and there was some kid, probably around 15, sitting a few rows up from me who knew every word to every song they (Mudd) played. I kind of felt bad for him.

If that was the MSG show from 2002 then a 16 year old Reine was in attendance in the cheap seats going crazy for Korn's cover of Metallica's "One".

13 year old King Kamala was pissed that Mama Kamala wouldn't let him go see KoRn with opening acts Disturbed and Trust Company on that same tour in '02!

In retrospect, I should be relieved I was too young to see any numetal concerts. I did go to a Taste of Chaos tour show with an off prime Deftones headlining in '06 but most of the bill was terrible scream.

That was the one, and I loved hearing that live. When they were announced for the Metallica tribute show I knew exactly what they were doing because of that show.

My first concert ever was seeing Korn at Roseland Ballroom in 1996. My mom is an over protective Jewish mother and had to go with me. That was an interesting site, having her go to a Korn show (with rap group The Pharcyde opening). She likes a lot of newer music, at least at the time, so she didn't mind Korn that much. We also went to The Offspring later that year and Family Values. We both ended up getting a contact high at that show.

Not a bad hard rock song but I kept waiting for a catchy hook since the 'chorus' of the song wasn't doing it for me and the hook never really came. Just a straight ahead rock song although Kroeger's vocals still annoy me.

Even the guitar riff that the song was clearly built around just lacked that necessary catchiness to my ears. Felt like something a Disturbed would throw out around 1999/2000.

Chad Kroger calls out Corey Taylor and calls Stone Sour "Nickelback Lite". I can't think of a less interesting musical feud.

Just found out my friend's band is opening up for Collective Soul in a few weeks.  8)

I would argue that they were slightly before and marginally better than the bands ITT but they definitely still qualify as butt rock IMO.
