Well I've never heard anything by them, so I can't comment. They're not that popular here in the UK I don't think. But from what I've read here I guess we're lucky. People's comments haven't made me want to exactly go on a Creed downloading spree

Creed being popular or not so popular is a different issue.
There is a concept of "Creed Bashing"...I dont know why :question:

cuz theyre musical snobs!

I like the new Creed song they play on the radio. I liked all of Creed's music when it FIRST comes out but then it loses something after the 1000th play on MTV, VH1 and the radio and then you kind of like want to protest it!

Just to clarify: What I meant was that's the reason I haven't heard anything by them, because they don't get played much over here

Where do you live AcrobatMan?

Creed is over rated, over played and they remind me of a boy band for some reason.

crys

I'll answer in detail because I live in Creed's hometown and was around them before they were famous...

Many U2 fans hate Creed because:

Scott Stapp is a hard rock Bono-knock off
They are pompous
They are trite
All their songs sound the same - or are going for the "Where The Streets Have No Name" feel, only with loud guitars
They are overrated (though no critics like them)
They really are not a good and talented band

Basically, Creed is trying to be a hard rock U2 - and it's blatantly and offensively obvious. And they're failing miserably.


The backlash is coming now if it isn't already in fullswing.
