Re:(Disc)overed – Puddle of Mudd

I know my last two “reviews” (or me shit talking anything I don’t dig) have been pretty negative but are people actually trying to get the early 2000’s music scene back up and running again? With Limp Bizkit and Blink 182 both making new albums, it almost seemed too terrible to be true. Do we really want to go back to a time when the radio airwaves were dominated by nu-metal acts that were trying to be Nirvana or even worse, pop punk? Apparently, some people do really badly. And they’re probably really stoked for this shit taco that just came out. Remember Puddle of Mudd? Those dudes who were big when you were in middle school for a song that’s chorus goes “she fucking hates me?” The Fred Durst produced band that wore backwards baseball caps and could make you stop believing in God? Well, they’re back. And holy shit, it’s worse than we could imagine.

First off, dudes aren’t even releasing an album of new material. I’m not complaining, cause I’m not into truck stop music, but I never thought they’d go this far. The dudes are doing a cover album. Yep. A cover album. Don’t worry it gets better (but not really). They’re surprisingly staying away from doing a Nirvana cover but instead, they are doing a cover of the Rolling Stones “Gimme Shelter.”

Gimme Shelter – Puddle of Mudd

Hey Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, you guys almost blocked the release of the Verve’s 1997 classic “Bittersweet Symphony” because they sampled a horn section for too long, but you couldn’t slap Wes Scantlin (the lead singer of Puddle of Mudd) and co with a restraining order to make sure they never come near a Rolling Stones record again?  Too late now. If you thought that wasn’t cringeworthy enough, they also cover Zeppelin’s worst song “D’yer Mak’er.” I didn’t have the balls to listen to it, because the original sounds goofy to me, so I can’t imagine what these clowns do to it.

Can someone please stop this band or the early 2ooo’s from repeating itself? I get some kids my age feel it has some nostalgic value to it or something, but to those who still think that: GROW UP ALREADY. This stuff is de-evolution caught on tape.
