I like Hard Rock, but Godsmack is an an amalgamation of everything I dislike about the Hard Rock/Heavy Metal genre: Simple, dumb riffs, repeated endlessly. (Like Pantera) Negative, downer lyrics: "World sucks, we're all gonna' die". (Again, like Pantera) But for some reason it WORKS! They KICK ASS! I have their Greatest Hits CD in heavy rotation in my car and at home. They've got KILLER guitar tone too. I like this track in particular: Embedding has been disabled so just click through: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olmlEaMf2wg[/ame] Well, the vid explains the guitar tone: it's a Gibson Les Paul. But WTF? Why do I like Godsmack?
