I actually liked Creed. I just think they got so overplayed that they became bland. Not to mention Stapp's voice was so distinct that all the songs sounded alike.

You might say the same of one Hootie and the Blowfish.

And now, a nice cover from Creed:

Creed and all the other bands such as Godsmack are all rip offs of Alice in Chains. For Gods Sakes come out with something original.

I agree with both Hepcat and BB. Great band that got played out too fast.

Not cool. Not cool at all.

Not ok with people covering good quality classic rock songs. Really pisses me off. The only one I have come to tolerate is Phish covering a couple things, but IMO Creed shouldn't be even getting near a Doors song. The talent of Jim Morrison is WAYYYYYYYY above whatshisfacesucksass from Creed.

I had to go to a goo goo dolls concert in Charlotte last month (long story, don't ask, it wasn't my choice to go although the Music Factory venue is awesome!) and we saw this band...Switchfoot open for them and they covered Wont Back Down by Tom Petty...absolutely butchered it. I was severely disappointed.

Did you listen to the song? I like The Doors as well and would never say Stapp's as talented as Morrison, but in my opinion it's a damn good cover -- primarily because it doesn't depart all that much from the original.

Yeah I listened to it, and I will give it to them that it is a decent cover and yes they did not stray too far from the actual song, I just appreciate classic rock way too much for someone like Creed to come in and think they can cover it. Its a staple in classic rock music and I don't appreciate other bands thinking its ok to cover it. If Jim Morrison was still alive, I don't know how much he would appreciate it either.
