I caught them at Download - wasn't really sure what to expect - they're just so much fun


I can only assume Don Broco's T-Shirt Song is in homage

Not sure how Skindred survived the nu-metal era. They're absolutely awful. Wouldn't put then above Ultraspank or Spineshank

There was a lot of mediocre bands in the nu metal era with the odd catchy tune. WWE/WWF used to use a lot of them for PPV soundtracks etc

Anyone here of the band 'Live' ??? There track 'I alone' is great

Ah i think Skindred are fairly different to the likes of Sphineshank and they have some decent tunes. Also they seem to be unreal live going by videos

Height of Callousness by Spineshank is a smashing album.

Lightening crashes is a great tune. Very good album was throwing copper. WHat's the connection between Live and Nu Metal.

Really wish there was a thread about nostalgic kerrang/scuzz/MTV2 bands of the 90s/00s

Still love listening to old Papa Roach, Hoobastank (The Reason and Crawling in the dark), Jimmy Eat World among others. Remember they played Tenacious Ds tribute all the time

At one time Tribute was on every third or fourth song.

Papa Roach, Slipknot, Hoobastank, Jimmy Eat World, Sum 41, Blink 182, Tenacious D, Limp Bizkit, Korn, Linkin Park, Marlyn Manson, Rammstein would have been main stays on Kerrang back then.

If there was a song/music video you loved you might leave the channel on for hours waiting for it to come on.

Many a house party back in the day was backed by Kerrang on the tele.

I'm still a sucker for that Kerrangy nu metal zeitgeist everyone else seems to hate, so it's good to see the love in, here! Also remember WWE aping the style constantly for their PPVs around 2001-2004/5. That's why me and herself go to Download, to be honest with you. I'm a Transilvanian Hunger kind of guy, but I don't want to go to some of the perceived 'better' festivals on the continent where it's oh so serious all the time. Download's got that Kerrang whack off it. I can see a fairly ballsy bit of death metal in one tent and then go and sing along to the emo club night stuff in the other tent.

And yeah, Skindred are still around because they're phenomenal craic live. And they usually wouldn't be my thing at all.
