I grew up in the late 90s and the early 2000s. This was an era ruled by a band that I LOVED, but no one else seemed to like at all.

There was a level of bombast, heaviness, and melancholy that I really didn't hear from other songs on the radio at the time. In fact, when I finally got Creed's 2001 album Weathered, I was surprised to find that many of their songs were much more intense. And again, I LOVED them. (continue)
