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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

You know what band I took a liking to in the early 2000's, that were famous for five minutes, and have fallen off the face of the earth? Default.

"Wasting My Time" was a modest hit for them but this was actually the highlight of their first album:



The record was produced by Chad Kroeger :(

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.

Ugh, Candlebox. If you ask me, their mix of grunge and shitty buttrock was more than likely a bigger influence on Creed and their ilk than Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains etc. were. Awful band.

You know what band I might hate just as much as I hate Seether? Puddle of Mudd. "Blurry" and "She Hates Me" would both be in my personal list of Worst Songs of the '00s.

I was at a sub shop and Nickelback's "Rock Star" came on the alt rock station playing over the P.A. and me and at least two of the workers there were mouthing along to the lyrics.  8)

"Blurry" is one of the few Puddle of Mudd songs that I actually like.  Fuck "She Hates Me", though.  "Spaceship" was pretty enjoyable due to the lyrics being ridiculous.  "LET'S GET IT OVER AND JUST GET NAKED!  I'M A HOLY ROLLER AND I OWN A SPACESHIP!"

His story is like that of a wrestler turning heel.  One minute I'm watching VH1 and he's on there just having had a kid with his high school sweetheart, writing "Arm Wide Open," then a few years later, he's left her for some supermodel, broken up with Creed and trying to break into acting.  At one point he was saying in another interview, "people said my band wouldn't make it.  I can't wait for people to tell me I can't act."

I find it amusing how his former bandmates don't want to help him out. I don't doubt that he's legit crazy but it's funny how the rest of Creed have more or less washed their hands of him and are letting him suffer.
