Seether, I have to say, is one of the better bands out there. For example
"Back off, we take you on, head strong to take on anyone, I know that you are wrong, headstrong, we're headstrong!"
-Headstrong, by Trapt.
That is a crappy band.
As far as modern music goes, Seether, Linkin Park, Staind, The Mars Volta, Trust Company, Three Days Grace, and A Perfect Circle are all pretty good. Slightly older but just as good (too bad they called it quits) was Smashing Pumpkins. Their Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness cd was quite possibly one of the best cds of any modern music act.
But then again, there's only one METALLICA!!
And all at once the crowd begins to sing: Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same
