    Mixed feeling here. On one hand, it's nice to see a band (or bands) playing something that at least has some musical interest to it, unlike what I've been accustomed to hearing for the last 15 years (at least) or so.

    On the other hand, this band doesn't even attempt to hide the fact that they're trying to be Led Zep 2.0. Nothing wrong with taking some Led Zep vibe and fusing it with their own style, but this is just way over the top trying to mimic Led Zep. Yes, Led Zep did rip some songs off, but, they did it their own flavor and character added to it.

    I don't want to bag on these guys too much, but currently, I see them more of a gimmick than anything else.

    Well, three straight number ones. Gotta love Shinedown playing second fiddle now. Now that's a overplayed band.

    Early/Mid 90's Offspring was awesome.

    Playing punk shows with Rancid en shit.


    Then they got rich and caught tGhey.

    (I sold my copy of Smash in 8th grade to my eventual PK college roommate. His mom grounded him for a month. Lol.)

    Started leaning towards Sugar Ray and Smashmouth instead of Rancid and NOFX.

    The signed with Columbia and their shit got weak.


    Dudes have been a band since '84. And they've been sellouts since about '97.
