Performers at this Event
Alice In Chains
Alice In Chains Remove performer from this event
Alice in Chains represented the darkest side of 1990s grunge rock. Taking a page or two from such previous doom-rock purveyors as Black Sabbath and the Melvins, the band lyrically depicted the hell of drug addiction (and other hardcore topics) perhaps more convincingly than anyone else of the era....
The Smashing Pumpkins
The Smashing Pumpkins Remove performer from this event
Of all the major alternative rock bands of the early '90s, Smashing Pumpkins were the group least influenced by traditional underground rock. Lead guitarist/songwriter Billy Corgan fashioned an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop, creating a layered, powerful sound driven by swirling, distorted guitars....
Soundgarden
Soundgarden Remove performer from this event
Soundgarden was a seminal Seattle rock band who helped to define the sound that came to be called grunge. Despite starting years earlier, and having a sound that more closely resembled Black Sabbath or Led Zeppelin than their contemporaries, they are usually considered one of the ‘big four’ of the ’90s Seattle grunge bands, along with Alice in Chains, Nirvana and Pearl Jam....
Bush
Bush Remove performer from this event
The first--and initially most successful--group to emerge in the wake of Nirvana's crossover to the mainstream, England's Bush took the famed Seattle band's angsty formula, added an even more palatable pop sheen, and took the whole package straight to the bank....
KoRn
KoRn Remove performer from this event
Korn's cathartic alternative metal sound positioned the group among the most popular and provocative to emerge during the post-grunge era. Korn began their existence as the Bakersfield, CA-based metal band LAPD, which included guitarists James "Munky" Shaffer and Brian "Head" Welch, bassist Reginald "Fieldy Snuts" Arvizu, and drummer David Silveria....

Old-fashioned L.A. hard rockers whose reputation stemmed from their blistering live show and their party-band ways. ~ Rovi
Papa Roach
Papa Roach Remove performer from this event
Firmly established as one of the leading nü metal acts, with powerful rap-influenced rock that eventually moved into hard rock. ~ Rovi
Lamb Of God
Lamb Of God Remove performer from this event
One of heavy metal's most consistent and challenging bands, with an uncompromising approach that garnered both respect and sales. ~ Rovi
Stone Sour
Stone Sour Remove performer from this event
Although Slipknot made their mainstream debut in the late '90s, singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root got their start a few years prior in Stone Sour. Described as a cross between Metallica and Alice in Chains, the group spent several years playing the Iowa bar circuit before the two men joined Slipknot....

The Sword
The Sword Remove performer from this event
Not to be confused with the Canadian heavy metal band from the late '80s, named simply Sword, the Sword are a retro-metal four-piece hailing from -- of all places -- the singer/songwriter oasis of Austin, TX....
Hollywood Undead
Hollywood Undead Remove performer from this event
Their faces hidden by masks--and real names clouded by slang-style monikers--Hollywood Undead formed in 2005 when members Deuce and J-Dog came together around the concept of portraying suburban teens through the angst and menace of hard rock and hip-hop....
Volbeat
Volbeat Remove performer from this event
Volbeat, a Danish metal band begun by former Dominus leader Michael Poulsen in October of 2001, became a dominant force not only in Danish metal, but in Danish rock as a whole, charting albums and singles on a regular basis....

Jul 21, 2007 - cserrano on The Smashing Pumpkins
pick your pocket full of sorrow, run away with me tomorrow

O! Nostalgia! The Pumpkins are, in a mushy and gross sentimental way, my favorite band. They were my first favorite, and for years seemed to mirror my changing interests (Billy started wearing dresses and apeing Marlene Dietrich hand gestures at the exact moment Glam rock and pre-code film infiltrated my brain... creepy).

The band always seemed like a bit of a secret, even when they were huge. Small awkward songs that seemed so big. Gut-wrenchingly teenage lines that will always hold an eternal truth (see title). Snarling guitars exploding out of lullaby-esque atmospheric waves (*the* band of the ADD generation...). A man whose hair disappeared as he became more and more famous (mirror images of Samson and Icarus rolled into one, really). Beautiful!

"Siamese Dream" stands as an angsty love letter to the human race... the most bitter songs are also the sweetest. "Adore" is just the best album ever, OK? Dancing out of tombs and into wombs on each cloudy day.

Billy Corgan is a genius, and enough of an egomaniac to think he actually matters. So he does.

"Zeitgeist" is a really good album. It's different. A band who no longer remembers who they were... but that's good. Times change. Better to forge anew than become The Police or Fleetwood Mac (*cough*). It's not their best, and maybe some of that heart and awkwardness is lost in a guise of maturity... but it's still there somewhere. Lines like "Of course I love you, baby / Coz I'm alive" couldn't be topped by Bolan, Dylan, or St. Augustine. And "Stellar" is, like, one of the best songs ever!

It's rock n roll, OK?! It's not a science. Sometimes it has to suck to make it special. And for that very reason, Billy Corgan is the patron saint of a generation's inner 14 year olds, for better or worse. re still amazing.

Nothing like them

One of my favorite groups of all time. Their music ranges from richly overdriven, symphonic guitar riffs to subdued, melancholy tunes that somehow evoke the feeling of old motion pictures for me. Although they have been on a downward spiral for some time now, the music I grew up with still holds a special place in my heart.
