I went to the show mainly to see Streetlight Manifesto and Whole Wheat Bread, but this band was playing before MxPx, so I had to sit through their set. It was long, it was boring, and they might be the least funny individuals ever. They did a remake of one song no less than 8 different times, all with different genres. Hearing Reel Big Fish do a Death Metal version of a ska song, especially a bad ska song like they did, was not a pleasant experience. The instrumentals were so sloppy and still just as unoriginal as they are recorded. Probably the worst part of the show though was the fact that they played for 2 hours and did 3 encores. It was horriffic.
Now, even though I generally hate underoath, many people told me to check them out live because they put on an excellent show. So, being the gullible douche that I am, I went and checked them out when there was no one else playing at warped tour at that particular moment. Im really sort of upset I even bothered. The guitarists are amazingly sloppy live, to the point of just annoyance. Spencer doesnt even bother utilizing any range, he just shrieks like a woman giving birth. Aaron's voice is quite bad too, making one of the most enjoyable parts of their music (his vocals) a complete wash. They also pick some terrible songs to play live. Im still questioning how they could leave out "Returning Empty Handed" for the two singles off of TOCS. Damn those scene kids.
Um yeah the Sex Pistols broke up in the 70's for a reason. I also would appreciate if you got out of my face and stopped spitting at me, Mr. Completely-generic-vocalist-in-the-genre. The instrumentals were trash, and when you are "too punk for your equipment to work", you really need to retire. The only saving point of this band was the fact that I had this painfully hot chick near me who I thought I had a chance with. PS: apparently I was wrong.
Oh god, between Lacuna Coil and System of a Down at Ozzfest this year was supposed to be Hatebreed as well as Distubed. Thankfully, the former band canceled. Distubed, while they performed competantly, make their way onto this list because of the overly long set of generic radio metal trash and the fact that the singer went into a speech about "Fuck the tastemaker and all of this emo/screamo bullshit with girls pants and mascara". I guess he didnt get the memo that both Atreyu and Norma Jean were playing the second stage. Whoops.
I saw them on tour with the Suicide Machines. Um that vocalist is really bad. And Um they play painfully generic metalcore. They can shred though, and they do it liberally through their live set. The vocalist kinda sucks too. Meh.
|this is funny. U2 and RHCP put on better shows.|
|I was going to look into going to a Disturbed concert eventually. But I guess I'm not now.|
|replace Disturbed with Evanescence. they performed at the grammys a couple years ago and were just HORRIBLE|
|I kind of hate Reel Big Fish. I was going to go that that same concert (different venue I'm guessing, for the same reason as you) but, all my friends had gone to the same show a week earlier while I was on vacation, since they were all going to be on vacation when it was in our town.|
|underoath does suck live|
|underoath just sucks|
|This list is stupid...you haven't heard that they suck live...you've already seen them and made that conclusion on your own.|
|he toook the title from a nofx cd.|
|M C R.|
|6: Blink 182|
|I've never been to a real live show so I can't say.|
|I don't know that I'd see any of the others if I was paid to, but AGT didn't suck any time I've seen them play. Was it with the old or new vocalist that you saw them? I've seen em play a few times, and they kicked some ass....maybe your venue just sucks|
|I just dont like any band that is tr00 punxxx 4 lyfe with25 dollar tshirts on sale and still unable to have a working guitar/bass amp. |
|Well, most of them suck in general, so yeah..|
|When I saw Reel Big Fish they were good...Hehe, maybe its because I like them normally. |
|I've seen Underoath live and I'd have to say, they put on a pretty good show. |
