Creed's first album is the ONLY respectable thing they did. Even then, Stapp is just a Vedder rip off. The BAND is good though. Alter Bridge is a much better band than Creed ever was and their singer is way better than Stapp is, they just aren't as commercial as Creed so you probably haven't heard of that band.
Personally, I think Pearl Jam is maybe the best band of the last 20 years. They started off completely grunge but then changed into their own sound like great bands do. I love their new albums for what they are, they aren't commercial really and they have some deep songs.
Chris Cornell still has the best rock voice right now, it's perfect.
And Led Zepplein is great, but people need to realize they stole a good deal of their ideas from blues artists and whatnot, but did change them up to sound more rock and all of that, doesn't change the fact they were great.
Beatles got real good when they stopped caring what people though and wrote good stuff (the later years).
Everyone will always sound like things previously, there is nothing you can do about that. ALL metal has taken things from Black Sabbath, because they basically invented metal. So saying bands like Metallica, Pantera, etc, are terrible is insane, but some are saying that cause they take a lot of Sabbath's elements.
