I don't like Creed, but I don't like Mudvayne either.
I'm ridiculously picky about lyrical content. I think Creed is sappy, plus . . . they're religious. But, millions of people all over the world disagree. Each to their own, I always say. Mark Tremonti (guitarist for Creed) is
an amazing guitar player.
There are two extremes of music that I won't tolerate:
Screaming, hacking, look-how-mad-I-am music
and praying, crying, falling-down-on-my-knees music
I like lyrics to be subtle. Subtelty is a lost art in this generation, where the listening public is bashed mercilessly in the face with unrealistic and often childish displays of emotion.
Scott Stapp (of Creed) takes himself way
Mudvayne is just ridiculous.
