The Usual Suspects:  Staind, Seether, Papa Roach, Red

 

This was one of the more memorable concerts of the summer-why?  Always ask why when some fucking retard starts an article that way.  Why.  Don’t buy anything wholesale, because if you were not there you do not know.  –Let’s start with the good, but extremely weird band called RED from Nashville, Tennessee.  Red is a Christian rock band.  I would expect to see them at Prayerfest, maybe.  Maybe on the 700 club with Pat Robertson in the morning, but bathed in Satan’s red light opening for the sleaze rock band Papa Roach at Lakewood-GASP!  With people flashing the horns of the devil at them?  And signed to Sony BMG?  It seems at some point this little band is destined to abandon the Christian rock status and that in and of itself is sad.  -What is music if it is not something you can feel passionately about.  Passion of the Christ WAS a hell of a snuff film and pretty fucking hardcore, but rock is cock baby.  Rock is sex and drugs.  Can we have a reasonably good Christian rock band hit the mainstream and remain Christian?  I can’t help of think about bands like P.O.D. and Stryper-talented, but pigeon holed into an extremely narrow gap.  So, my heart goes out to them.  They are extremely talented, and I do wonder how they will end up.  –This brings to mind another question.  Why in the name of Satan unholy does Seether wind up with Christian rock bands like RED and FLYLEAF on the road?  -Seether with Shinedown, Staind, Papa Roach, Nickeback—anything post-grunge and even slightly hard rock makes more sense to me.  –Which leads me to Papa Roach.  Who in the hell is Papa Roach anyway?  Anybody have some SCARS?  I mean, the singer, Jacoby Shaddix (like this is his REAL fucking name, c’mon), and the drummer, Dave Buckner met on a football field and decided to form Papa Roach.  The Name, Papa Roach-we could take that two ways now couldn’t we?  It could mean the tail end of the fattest joint in the whole world, or the king of the most evil fucking bugs on the planet.  They always say cockroaches will be the only things to survive a nuclear war.  One day, Papa Roach could become the master race.  After all, their major label debut was titled INFEST.  So which definition do you think that band has for itself?  Buckner is in NOT in the band anymore-he finds the band ‘strained and antagonistic’ and wants to ‘dissolve Papa Roach.’  I do love a war, and one seems to be brewing.  –I would have liked to see Papa Roach on the Motley Crue tour, which SHOULD have came to Atlanta.  I can see them opening for Seether and Buckcherry –but RED opening for them was just fucking strange.  Unless it was the Angels and Devils tour and somebody forgot to tell me.  –Aaron Lewis and Staind.  From a personal perspective, something about Staind has always made me want to pull my fucking hair out by the roots.  I have never been able to figure out exactly what makes me scream FUCK over them, but it is hard to argue with their mainstream success and enormous fan base.  Their music is out together WELL, and Mike Mushock is an amazing guitar player.  Johnny April is a pretty kick ass bassist too.  –Maybe it is the band’s early association with Fred Fucking Durst that pisses me off.  I have always been convinced that Fred Durst is some sort of retarded musical antichrist that should be on FUSE, everyday, undergoing a very public water boarding session.  The world has definite uses for people like Fred Durst, lol –and it is not just for being a record label president. –So here we go.  Seether.  There are so many reasons to love Seether.  We could start with Atlanta’s own Troy McLawhorn being the newest addition to Seether.  The band could not have made a better choice.  Admittedly, Dark New Day was beginning to go places and is a damn good band-but let’s face facts.  Seether was an upgrade wasn’t it?  The whole point of being a musician is to do something you love and get paid for it.  So good for him and good for Seether.  Fuck yes.  –Shaun Morgan is quickly becoming my Kurt Cobain with his emotional and powerful live performances.  He is not failing to surprise me as an innovative and exciting front man.  Every time I see him, he puts on a different show.  He is evolving, and I can easily see Seether becoming a major arena band.  The size and scope of any tour Seether is on is morphing into something, bigger, better and more engaging each and every time I see them.  It is exciting to watch a band evolve and become more-and with a song about to land on a NCIS soundtrack (which is fucking weird isn’t it, it is going to be a new song-fucking strange), all we can do is wait and see where they go from here. –But yes, go see them.  You WILL have a damn good time!  And if somebody offers you Kool-Aid, DRINK IT.  Take the trip.
