Botox, lots and lots of botox

[–]elvismcvegas 2012 points2013 points  (58 children)

Cowboy hats and bandanas so you cant see they are starting to bald

[–]McChoaderton 681 points682 points  (14 children)

Starting to bald?? SHEEEIT, they've been balding/bald for YEARS, son.

[–]Randy_Bobandy_Lahey 172 points173 points  (29 children)

Aka. Brett Michaels

[–]tuberippin 76 points77 points  (21 children)

Vince Neil is way worse.

[–]Randy_Bobandy_Lahey 62 points63 points  (18 children)

Vince is a fat slob who can’t sing live.

[–]Tainted_Bruh 57 points58 points  (9 children)

Keeemstaa ma haaa!

Good god, rockstars need to know when to hang up the gloves. You’re not 26 and fueled by raw cocaine anymore.

Well, only one of those is true.

[–]ChunkyLaFunga 159 points160 points  (2 children)

I have an interesting mental image of Axl Rose aged 20.

[–]No_big_whoop 155 points156 points  (13 children)

Black hair dye, sleeveless denim shirts

[–]deadfishy12 60 points61 points  (5 children)

OMG the commercial with the Ratt problem. Poor old man dancing around for nickels to a 40 year old hit.

[–]boredomjunkie79 63 points64 points  (8 children)

He looks like a monster now

[–]Cyrius 88 points89 points  (2 children)

He looks like he's about to wipe off his "regular person" makeup to reveal that he's the Joker.

[–]beemer789 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Man looks like he’s about to gas a gala full of Gotham’s rich and elite.

[–]SayingPsychiatry 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Looks like he's the ghoulish announcer for the Hunger Games or some other dystopian, degrading, inhuman form of entertainment for desensitized people from the future.

[–]Rousdower9 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I'd say a plastic action figure left out in the sun on a hot day.

[–]YoungAdult_ 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Wow, he’s not someone I would have thought to get Botox.

[–]St0mb 1987 points1988 points  (44 children)

If you think that’s bad, Sinatra hasn’t put out a good record in like 50 years bro

[–]meta_perspective 592 points593 points  (28 children)

I haven't heard anything new from Frank Sinatra Jr. recently either.

[–]internet-handle-1985 4350 points4351 points  (182 children)

More like 2 original members and a bunch of hired guns touring on a huge string of hits from the 60s, a few minor 70s hits, a big comeback hit tied to an 80s movie soundtrack, and a short-lived reunion tour of the original members in 2012. Ex-member who wrote all the early hits is a respected elder statesman of rock and roll and now has a successful solo career totally independent of his original band.

[–]internet-handle-1985 989 points990 points  (30 children)

Main songwriter also was a recluse for many years, and he spent every waking hour with his crazy shrink during the 80s.

[–]Wouju 585 points586 points  (73 children)

sounds oddly specific

[–]internet-handle-1985 671 points672 points  (35 children)

Hugely popular band from California. Guy with the solo career's initials are BW, and his two dead brothers were key members of the band.

[–]PintmasterPaul 454 points455 points  (11 children)

OH SHIT is it the beach boys

[–]OhShitItsSeth 200 points201 points  (4 children)

I once met Al Jardine and his wife while working at a hotel. Nice people, but Jardine himself is one of the shortest people I’ve ever met. Stood nearly a full head shorter than me.

[–]Gella321 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Bon Wenley and the Beagles?

[–]Punchit22 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Banny Welfman?

[–]PotatBdedw3 73 points74 points  (31 children)

Beach boys

[–]paul__k 125 points126 points  (30 children)

Almost also fits for Pink Floyd with Gilmour and Mason wringing the last few coins out of the band while Waters' Wall tour was one of the highest grossing ones overall.

[–]lenfantsuave 78 points79 points  (22 children)

Yeah but you can easily accuse waters of squeezing the wall for every penny it’s worth for 30 years. Like I love their music, but Roger, my man... it’s time to move on.

[–]Holbay_Hunter 10 points11 points  (6 children)

But is the music more important than the artist, more like composers of old? Don't know if you've ever heard of the cover band Brit Floyd, but they are amazing, and well recognized. They sell out Red Rocks here in Colorado every year, there's plenty of YouTube about. They're going to be keeping Floyd music going long after all the original members have passed on.

[–]dobr_person 81 points82 points  (4 children)

At least one member has done some sort of lockdown guitar lesson thing and it's weird seeing them as just some friendly old bloke chatting about his hobby rather than a mystical figure on a stage.

[–]ScorpionX-123 36 points37 points  (2 children)

at least one original band member is dead

[–]Fetty_is_the_best 63 points64 points  (7 children)

Switch “few minor hits” to the 60s and “string of hits” to the 70s and this describes Pink Floyd to a T haha

[–]epserdar 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Add ten years and this is Van Halen lmao

[–]saltysteph 614 points615 points  (44 children)

"Looks like we have a RATT problem."

[–]FlashZordon 220 points221 points  (4 children)

That commercial was their saving grace lmao.

[–]SummonTheDerp 54 points55 points  (15 children)

That would feel so bad to have been hair metal legends in your time and then end up being just insurance commercial fuckers

[–]jollysaintnick88 1488 points1489 points  (68 children)

FORTY DOLLAR screen printed shirts

[–]Iron_Maiden_735 578 points579 points  (53 children)

Lmao I spent $80 at an Iron Maiden concert for my shirt. Worth every buck.
Edit: To all the people saying it’s a waste of money, it was one of the best purchases I made

[–]5thEditionFanboy 212 points213 points  (22 children)

Legacy of the Beast tour? The pricing nowadays is just insane

[–]Kara_mella 155 points156 points  (13 children)

I bought a bootleg shirt from a dude in the parking lot. It was an amazing show!

[–]PostalDrummer1997 72 points73 points  (7 children)

Did that at the slayer farewell tour $10. I did drop $40 on a maiden legacy of the beast shirt though

[–]cillit_bang_bang 375 points376 points  (42 children)

"Actually, our new record is the most personal thing we've ever done."

[–]lanternsinthesky 244 points245 points  (38 children)

"It is our heaviest album yet" but it turns out to be super tepid and boring

[–]ImDero 122 points123 points  (4 children)

"We're really going back to our roots to make something that our long time fans will appreciate."

-Hardcore punk bands from the 80's releasing a new mostly acoustic album

[–]lanternsinthesky 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Honestly though I don't think there is a single 80s hardcore band I wanna hear a new album from, because it will most likely end up as bad as that Black Flag album

[–]ASS_EATING_JESUS 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Over produced, boring, repetitive album, sounds like it was recorded in a 10 million dollar studio (it probably was), boring instrumentation, etc etc

[–]BplusHuman 1834 points1835 points  (312 children)

This is a very best case scenario. Most are playing Indian casinos, state fairs, and cruises for mortgage payments... Or members are having Twitter meltdowns... Hell of a retirement plan

[–]buttered_jesus 101 points102 points  (27 children)

Ah. I remember my friend talking about seeing smash mouth at our local state fair. About twenty people showed up.

I still try to see Everclear on their summer tours though. They perform with an entire pack of bands like this (Marcy Playground, Toadies, Sugar Ray once) and it's honestly a good time.

[–]lucidspoon 31 points32 points  (4 children)

I saw Everclear and met the members at the Indiana State last year. Haha

[–]buttered_jesus 15 points16 points  (2 children)

They're so nice! I remember I had an Alien T-Shirt on and Art was really into it. Then I asked if he liked it enough to play "Queen of the Air" and he told me to fuck off lol.

[–]Colin_Bowell[S] 641 points642 points  (152 children)

I'm mostly referring to some very popular bands that haven't put anything out worth listening to in a decade or more but still pack venues with old and new fans because of old songs.

[–]TheOther18Covids 442 points443 points  (51 children)

Went to The Offspring in December. Fucking outstanding.

[–]Bedsweater 112 points113 points  (6 children)

I never saw them, I loved their album smash. I did see pennywise earlier this year, they were awesome!

[–]og-biebs 83 points84 points  (5 children)

I saw them on the 2014 Summer Nationals Tour. The Vandals, Pennywise, and Bad Religion opened. The Offspring played all of Smash start to finish, then came back out for a second set of stuff from all their other albums. Best concert I have ever been to.

[–]WonkaTXRanger 29 points30 points  (10 children)

It sucks Dexter had to sell the jets.

[–]Mucl 134 points135 points  (8 children)

There are also bands that cant even pack a venue still at it. A band I played with opened for puddle of mudd twice, and a few other bands of that calibur.

Basically promoters round up like 10 local bands with a following and get them to sell tickets for like 20-35 bucks a pop depending on who it is. Whoever sells the most tickets picks when they play, right before the main act obviously. You get like 5 minutes to set up and 25 minutes to play. Everything is back lined and the drums are a shit show half the time. Your band only sold 5 tickets? You get to play at 5pm.

It's a fun experience I guess but I wouldnt recommend it.

[–]karma_trained 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Can i ask who it was? I saw a lot of puddles shows

[–]QueefBuscemi 71 points72 points  (51 children)

Or members are having Twitter meltdowns...

You can't say something like that and not give some juicy examples!

[–]drevmeister_fresh 172 points173 points  (23 children)

The lead singer of Trapt was headstrong and taking on everyone a few months ago, even challenging Ice-T to a fight. https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/03/in-a-time-of-crisis-a-panicked-nation-comes-together-to-watch-nu-metal-band-trapt-melt-down-on-twitter.html

https://www.screengeek.net/2020/04/16/trapt-band-twitter-war-ice-t/

Not proud of it, but it was my primary quarantine entertainment for a few days.

[–]greg19735 41 points42 points  (10 children)

While funny, i certainly wouldn't consider Trapt a major band. But that was the first thing that came to my mind.

[–]rwhaley2010 13 points14 points  (5 children)

That band has way too big of an ego for only being famous because people downloaded their shit on Limewire, thinking they were Linkin Park.

[–]VHSRoot 43 points44 points  (16 children)

Billy Corgan has entered the chat

[–]sparkyjay23 63 points64 points  (21 children)

Rolling Stones are the example of doing it kinda right. They still tear shit up.

[–]lookoutnorthamerica 51 points52 points  (7 children)

Springsteen, too, last time I saw him he played almost four hours. Best part, the concert was a thirty-five song setlist that didn't include some of his biggest songs (Born In The USA, Glory Days) and still felt like a totally complete and filler-free show.

[–]DaveGr0hl 58 points59 points  (3 children)

Or members are having Twitter meltdowns...

BACK OFF, I'LL TAKE YOU ON

HEADSTRONG, I'LL TAKE ON ANYONE

[–]really_good_sandwich 43 points44 points  (22 children)

I like to call it the casino circuit. Every band or singer graduates to it at some point

[–]BplusHuman 61 points62 points  (19 children)

Just once I'd like to hear "the bassist from The Dropkick Murphy's, invested in good performing mutual funds, bought a reasonable house and rental property. Now he volunteers at a school on the playground because he thinks it's a good time"

[–]Ryanmiaku 32 points33 points  (7 children)

Check out the lead singer of The Offspring, might not be as mundane as your example but he's absolutely successful and living life to the fullest

Edit: A Word

[–]pexxan 483 points484 points  (19 children)

Youngest person is 55

[–]man_man16 175 points176 points  (12 children)

Nah the youngest person is 6 because some idiot decides to bring their kid

[–]CapnMaynards 40 points41 points  (9 children)

A guy brought his kid to Maiden. On the floor. General admission. Right up front. I looked at him like he was nuts. Like dude, do you not realize what the fuck is about to happen here? After two songs he tossed the kid over the barricade and sent him running. Good timing too, because the next song was 2 Minutes to Midnight and the place went fucking mental.

Funny thing is there were some old people there too, right behind me. They, too, did not realize what the fuck was about to happen. During the opening number, where they once stood was only a swirling mass of bodies. I hope they survived, but I doubt it.

[–]ttchoubs 93 points94 points  (15 children)

Used to sing about the horror of war, the ills of big business and being an outlaw only to become conservative after age and wealth

[–]Vega_S10 386 points387 points  (45 children)

I'm ashamed no one has mentioned Motley Crue yet.

[–]MinnyWild11 135 points136 points  (22 children)

[–]Brelen_Raven 52 points53 points  (2 children)

Me and my brother always jokingly sing in his mubles, haha!

His mumbling is kinda nostalgic for me, my parents used to watch live Crue DVDs all the time, so I almost like it, aha

[–]banjotooie1995 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Oh my that was brutal lol

[–]thedeadlyrhythm42 18 points19 points  (1 child)

That shot at :22 is what does it for me every time.

That outfit barely looked good 50 pounds ago. It's not doing you any favors now, buddy.

[–]Courtjeztur 17 points18 points  (2 children)

I'm firmly in the "They suck now but fans don't care" on this one. I loved Motley Crue growing up in the 80s and still listen to their stuff. Fuck I'm old.

[–]KISSfanFOXV2 800 points801 points  (99 children)

Sad how some of this applies, at least in part, to KISS

[–]GayyFieri 234 points235 points  (44 children)

KISS has been reviving that dead horse since the eighties all thanks to Gene. As soon as sales of merchandise runs down he starts another reunion tour going again.

[–]rainbowsixsiegeboy 94 points95 points  (34 children)

So basically milk the band for every cent they can

[–]GayyFieri 135 points136 points  (27 children)

Gene's pretty much said the only reason the band exists is for him to get laid and make money. That's why they've made cartoons, movies, comic books, posters, , lighters, action figures, stuffed animals, condoms, vibrators, coffins, bed sheets, makeup, alarm clocks... anything they can slap their name on and market they will gladly do.

Now that he's elderly and his wife threatened to leave him (and a huge settlement I'm sure) if he cheats on her again he just uses the band to market his bullshit merch

I feel bad for Paul who seems like a genuinely good dude.

[–]rainbowsixsiegeboy 41 points42 points  (18 children)

I mean everyone sells out eventually but really having your merch on both president elects just to cash in thats where you over step the line

[–]GayyFieri 64 points65 points  (17 children)

They sold out immediately. I'm not exaggerating, he's said the only reason he got into music was to make money. Kiss is all jingles behind a ridiculous stage show anyway.

At least Van Halen were talented as fuck and wanted to actually make music when they started.

And it's well known where Gene stands politically. The only reason he was kicked off the Apprentice is no one on the show could have a bigger ego than Donald Trump

[–]MediaMoguls 12 points13 points  (0 children)

He literally refers to KISS as a “rock and roll brand

[–]joeclark5 327 points328 points  (30 children)

Yeah, Paul can barely sing now, it's sad. They were great but should have retired about 15 years ago.

[–]Timcwalker 34 points35 points  (0 children)

The longest 5 year career in music history.

[–]DETtigersOWNyou 69 points70 points  (24 children)

I took my father in law to see U2 a few years ago and they actually crushed it.

[–]Doctor--Spaceman 28 points29 points  (2 children)

They've broken the stereotypes for a lot of older bands, thankfully. They've still got all the original members, still making popular songs, Bono's voice is still decent.

[–]zehamberglar 287 points288 points  (55 children)

Ctrl+f: Blink-182.

Bless them, but they are trying so hard to stay relevant when all anyone wants from them is for them to be themselves. The moment they started putting kids dabbing and flossing in their videos, I knew they were desperate.

[–]IngeniousMoron 54 points55 points  (4 children)

A couple months back when Tom got that government footage released I had to go listen to Aliens Exist. That led me down this crazy nostalgic Blink trip listening to their old stuff. I can't believe how good the albums were from when they picked up Travis to the untitled album before Tom left.

Idk that flossing stuff hurt to watch

[–]Avast_Ye_Scallywag 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Sometimes when the kids are in bed late at night and I've settled with a few I watch old concerts of Blink on Youtube and feel very very sad.

True story.

I just wish, impossibly, that they never grew up, and never grew apart.

[–]divineaffirmation 414 points415 points  (144 children)

Staind, TrapT, and Puddle of Mudd come to mind

[–]JacketYT 290 points291 points  (45 children)

Trapt sold 600 albums lmao

[–]Swaggurai7 173 points174 points  (5 children)

Bro you gotta check the Pandora numbers.

[–]PiBBzYx 25 points26 points  (12 children)

Their twitter beef with Trivium is their best content.

[–]itwasbread 33 points34 points  (7 children)

Imagine being the fucking headstrong guys and trying to go up against Trivium.

[–]PiBBzYx 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Ohh boy it goes about as well as you'd expect.. Pablo is savage from what I remember haha. They genuinely believe they're a bigger, better band.

[–]itwasbread 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Fucking HOW. Trivium has released album after album of absolute top tier metal to both critical and commercial success, Trapt has one big hit, 2 small hits, and of the 3 songs 2 suck ass. How delusional does a one-hit wonder have to be to beef with a band that is consistently floated as one of the best in the genre.

[–]TheHadMatter15 49 points50 points  (17 children)

You know what 2 of these 3 have in common?

Fred Durst

[–]satansmetatron 20 points21 points  (3 children)

You mean that dude whose whole stage persona is a bad imitation of Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies?

[–]william_liftspeare 24 points25 points  (9 children)

Yeah Fred Durst was the tastemaker in the late 90s/early 2000s. Better or worse there's a lot of bands that blew up back then because he would publicly endorse them on MTV and take them on tour with Limp Bizkit. I honestly don't think the rock and metal world has ever seen anyone with that level of cultural influence on an individual level honestly.

[–]yobatman12 24 points25 points  (22 children)

Didn't Staind break up though because Aaron Lewis wanted to go solo?

[–]makin_more_nanobots 49 points50 points  (0 children)

It says that they haven't put out a good record in decades, not that they have never put out a good record.

Def Leppard, Kiss, Whitesnake, nearly every 70s and 80s rock group.

[–]17Argos 149 points150 points  (36 children)

Styx, Foreigner, Journey

[–]joeclark5 60 points61 points  (7 children)

Yeah, they all have different singers now, just not the same.

[–]LordOfHorns 104 points105 points  (3 children)

Actually the guy from journey sounds more like Steve perry then Steve perry does anymore

[–]rakfocus 29 points30 points  (2 children)

and he's filipino - 10/10 would go to a journey concert. Arnel Pineda literally sounds the exact same

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WwNYY-rqIY

[–]SheepLovesFinns 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Don’t you dis Styx

[–]Angelbabysdaddy 14 points15 points  (5 children)

I saw styx and yes about 8 years ago and Styx was the best show I had ever been to. Tommy Shaw is a fucking rock star and their Dennis De Young replacement was fantastic. Don't remember his name, though.

[–]rfuree11 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Ratt playing geico ads

[–]Julps2 53 points54 points  (11 children)

Saw them 3 years ago when they toured with Megadeth, had very little interest in them before the show (only went for Megadeth), but I have to admit they gave a pretty solid show.

Deep Purple on the other hand...

[–]Nearly-Acceptable 20 points21 points  (6 children)

Has Deep Purple gone to shit? I got a ticket for a concert which got delayed bc of Covid...

[–]Julps2 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Saw them 2 years ago when they toured with Judas Priest and let's just say that they show their age. Ian Gillan can't reach half the notes he used to, don't expect anything like Child in Time to be played. Also with Richie Blackmore missing it's just not the same.

[–]AlexSSB 131 points132 points  (17 children)

I wish Mötley Crüe would sound better today

[–]phantasmacorvi 34 points35 points  (8 children)

I think their music sounds fine, but Vince's voice is so destroyed from years of drug abuse, he can barely mumble the words.

[–]rwhaley2010 38 points39 points  (1 child)

God sent COVID-19 because that was the only way to stop Motley Crue from doing their reunion tour

[–]LordOfHorns 90 points91 points  (4 children)

I’ve seen many bands at shows like this, usually they put on a decent show. I’ve never been to one of these shows thinking “man they’re washed”.

[–]Darktrooper2021 39 points40 points  (5 children)

“The Reunion Tour”

[–]AlexTheTownPump 171 points172 points  (45 children)

Guns N’ Roses by far. Highest grossing tour of the decade and instead of releasing any ounce of new music, all they have to show for it is an $1k boxset with fake tattoos, a picture book, and some demos that were widely shared amongst the hardcore fans already for years. Basically the same set list for every leg of the tour give or a take a few cover songs. They were pretty good shows when Axl can sing but not worth the money anymore. I had tickets to their summer tour this year and I’m so glad to just now submit for a refund.

Thankfully there was a group of extra dedicated fans who tracked down and leaked a shit ton of unreleased material not long ago. Unfortunately all of the material was from the early days of the Chinese Democracy sessions but there’s a few good songs with vocals. Most were instrumentals. Funny that the demos which had vocals and were later released on the album had the same exact vocal tracks. Album came out in 08 and most of the vocals were recorded in 99 lol.

[–]whatafuckinusername 75 points76 points  (6 children)

Who cares if they haven't put out a new record in a decade, if the old music's good enough. Billy Joel's last original pop song was released 26 years ago and his tours still rake in $100 mil+.

[–]Thazgar 261 points262 points  (45 children)

Happy to considers AC/DC not a suitable candidate for this starter pack. Their last and probably ultimate record was amazing.

Iron Maiden is still strong too

[–]HappyBunchaTrees 46 points47 points  (10 children)

Yea, seen Maiden live a few years back. Touring a new album, has the original line-up and they all sounded great. Not sure what Janick was doing though, I think he was in his own world throwing a guitar around the place.

[–]Hwight_Doward 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Saw them last August for their hits tour, Bruce cant quite hit the high notes as well (probably due to his throat cancer) but they still put on one hell of a show

[–]Bluberberg 87 points88 points  (9 children)

The Rolling Stones still record bangers

[–]BirdlandMan 67 points68 points  (7 children)

Paul McCartney is still rocking too. He put out a pretty solid album last year.

[–]Skibub 30 points31 points  (2 children)

I saw Elton John last fall and even tho his voice changed a ton he was fucking amazing. Best concert I’ve ever been to

[–]DarthNightsWatch 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Maiden and AC/DC shows are top notch. Dudes are grandpas and still have more energy than some 90’s-00’s bands

[–]TheFineHat 94 points95 points  (5 children)

My favorite band Beethoven hasn’t released a new album in centuries. 😔

[–]word_vomiter 33 points34 points  (4 children)

Original line up is almost gone.

[–]timeup 29 points30 points  (2 children)

They look like a group of someone's aunts

[–]realtrapppshit 48 points49 points  (6 children)

This is one of the reasons why seeing King Crimson was awesome in 2019. Yes they did a bunch of older material but the group has had a decent bit of hiatuses over the years. Also they have reformatted into a 3 drummer lineup. The sound is overall less heavy but it’s still more than a pure nostalgia act.

[–]she_hulk98 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Well King Crimson is just Fripp. As long as he can still play it doesn't matter who's on stage with him.

[–]KryptikMitch 48 points49 points  (9 children)

Ted Nugent has only gone as high as a #13 hit and that was 40 years ago. On a side note, fuck ted nugent, on account that so many songs are about wanting to fuck underage girls.

[–]compactdigital1 45 points46 points  (17 children)

Counting Crows. Dude literally "sings" in his normal speaking voice. Still riding the 'Mr. Jones' train.

[–]thefallenfew 13 points14 points  (5 children)

He’s actually made a great career for himself doing analytics. I listened to him speak at a conference. I found it pretty interesting that most folks who attended had no idea he was the lead singer of Counting Crows lol

[–]KaiserWilhelm713 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Iron Maiden is still good

[–]Ale4444 401 points402 points  (102 children)

Edit: these replies missing the point ironically are fun.

Greenday has changed. That’s okay, to some it sounds good. To some they “suck” now, like the image above. And below this comment are the fans saying “they’ve never sounded better”.

This starter pack is on point.

Just say Coldplay.

I haven't heard anything from them since Mylo Xyloto, which I really didn't like.

What are they up to?

[–]atropicalpenguin 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Another thing ruined by Gwyneth Paltrow (/jk, I'm a sucker for Ghost Stories).

The Rolling Stones still put on unbelievable shows! They end up mostly playing their hits because that’s what people want I guess. Their tour this year was canceled of course but if they tour again you should really go see them. Might be the last time. Absolutely a wonderful experience. Stones fan are nuts and it’s always a blast.

Weezer.

[–]coldwind81 212 points213 points  (5 children)

Weezer is the most inconsistent band I have ever seen tbh

[–]SpittinVen0m 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Weezer put on the best sounding live show I've ever seen, and I've been to alot of concerts and dont even like them that much. They even brought out this elementary school band class to play island in the sun with them, it was awesome.

Weezer escaped that realm in 2016

[–]KingRapaNui 22 points23 points  (0 children)

And reentered it the following year

(I say this as a PD fanboy)

[–]SypherGS 68 points69 points  (9 children)

"Bon Jovi"

[–]S_is_for_Smeagol 11 points12 points  (3 children)

They used to be amazing. Then Richie left, and they've been a shell of their former selves ever since.

[–]BridgeFromTheFridge 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Ah yes, the superannuation tour

[–]k-maldonado23 133 points134 points  (44 children)

Lol thought of SOAD.

[–]FINNCULL19 86 points87 points  (2 children)

Yeah, but they’re all still talented, and they’re still touring. They just haven’t put an album out due to Serj and Daron’s creative differences.

[–]Buzz2olluxbuzz 67 points68 points  (1 child)

Serj, Daron, and John arguing

Shavo just wants to bop

[–]Lewke 38 points39 points  (7 children)

serj is doing fuckin great though

[–]Fl4shbang 10 points11 points  (2 children)

True. I do prefer Scars on Broadway though, as much as I miss Serj's vocals, probably because my favorite SOAD album is Mezmerize and Daron wrote almost all the songs on it.

[–]divineaffirmation 102 points103 points  (21 children)

They haven’t put a single record in a decade let alone a good one.

[–]drfunkenstien014 40 points41 points  (19 children)

That’s what happens when you let the guitarist write everything.

[–]PettyBox 29 points30 points  (9 children)

They all write, but the guitarist pretty much decides what goes on the record. That's one big reasons why Serj isn't keen on doing another record with SOAD as it's mostly a Daron show.

[–]drfunkenstien014 11 points12 points  (8 children)

I couldn’t remember his name but yea, he basically took over. He wanted to sing and I believe he didn’t let Shavo play bass on one of the albums because he thought he could play the parts better. And then he got addicted to heroin and yadda yadda yadda

[–]333threepeat 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Well considering Johns a big trump supporter now I doubt they’ll ever do anything together again

[–]drink_this_puppy_554 23 points24 points  (16 children)

You know which groups don’t fit in this category, though? In the past year, I’ve seen Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Slayer, Primus, and 311. All of them kicked ass. Unfortunately, for each one of these, there are at least ten floundering bands.
