    Goddamn a lot of horrible sh/it there. Especially that overrated eminem and all the nu metal crap bands and anything emo. Keane? boy that band is nothing special. Deftones also take themselves too seriously and really I don’t know what the whole fuzz is about them. Even decent hard rock and metal bands like Black label or Soundgarden barely haven’t anything new that’s good to listen to. Great singers there, but most new music doesn’t do it for me. MONDO CANE! You just can’t touch a genius like Mike Patton. Serj takian’s whole career has been nothing but a Patton wannabe so he doesn’t do it for me either. Or really he just sucks. But like I said, Mike Patton is the only artist along with noise, experimental, and avant garde/metal or anything that has real soul and passion are the only who put out good music these days. You can list the “heaviest” album there or a modern death metal album, but Mondo Cane’s softest tack is 1000x heavier than that crap.
