Puddle Of Mudd : Control

Puddle Of Mudd : Control

Oh Jesus, here's more. Staind's support on their upcoming tour (say no more), and discovered by no greater mind than Fred Durst, Puddle Of Mudd are guilty by association straight off the bat. Unbelievably, their album 'Come Clean' was the highest-charting debut rock album ever in the US. Ever! This, from a band who sound virtually indistinguishable from thousands of other thugs in big shorts and whose debut single features the line 'I love the way you look at me/I love the way you smack my ass...'. Should we be laughing? Is there a conspiracy going on?

One more question. Why do bad American bands feel compelled to violate the English language? Puddle Of Mudd, Limp Bizkit, Korn, . Staind, Linkin Park, etc... What's it all about? Do they know they're wrong, or are we witnessing a musical genre led by disgruntled Spelling B losers? A slap on the wrist to all of them.
