I am preparing myself for the onslaught of Creed hate. I think I am the only person on the planet (ok, besides, like, one other person that I know of) that likes them. I don't understand what is so horrible about them.

Honestly, I think that most people HERE dislike them because they've bad-mouthed pop groups or whatever. Not sure if they've eve dissed NSYNC before. Not really sure what they've said about other people, like Fred Durst (I just remember Fred ging off of Scott Stapp that one time).

I think that if Creed would have said something like "we love NSYNC" then everyone wouldn't be so up in arms. But that's just my theory.

Me, I may not feel as strongly about them as the others, but I guess I'm a little upset that NSYNC didn't win. But when you don't release an album at all last year, its not surprising. I love them and think they should have won, but that's the breaks, I guess. Maybe next year. I'm glad they were even nominated. It means that people are still thinking of them at least.

I'm not necessarily a fan of Creed, but I do find their songs catchy.

oh, yeah, I definitely wanted NSYNC to win over Creed. No contest for me. I am dissapointed they didn't win. But, I like Creed. I just don't understand the (apparent) blind hatred people have for them. And I wouldn't expect them to say "we love NSYNC". And really, I could care less who they like or don't like. I don't like them based on who they like and don't like.

You and me both. I don't own their albums, and they're not one of my favorite bands, but I certainly don't dislike them. I don't change the station when they come on the radio or MTV.

I think people viscerally dislike them so much because they're Christians. I really, truly believe that. Sixpence None the Richer? They were popular with "Kiss Me," but when people found out they were a Christian band, their popularity sank. Same thing with Lifehouse, Jars of Clay and dc Talk. Marginal mainstream success, and then dropped like a hot potato when the truth came out. And those are some of the best bands in the world, period.

And that really and truly sucks.

If that is the case, I think that is very sad. And not just because it's a Christian band. I just don't understand the concept of hating someone (or something) based on religious affiliation.

And it really does suck.

Also, I did not know that those bands were Christian bands. heh. Except maybe Lifehouse. I might have know that.

That's cool. Because all I ever hear is how much Creed sucks. I mean, obviously there are people who like them or they wouldn't have won, right? :) But it's nice to hear that some of the people who like them are people I consider firends. heh

Most people dislike them because of what they see as Scott Stapp's "God complex". Noone that I know has ever dogged them because they are Christians (in fact, the few friends I have who do like them are, interestingly enough, atheists) but because they think Scott Stapp is a pompous asshole. Also, while, individually, I think the members are talented (I happen to like Scott's voice and his drummer and guitarist are pretty fucking talented), when you put it all together, I don't think it's terribly inventive music. So yeah, I think it's because of Scott Stapp's supposed asshole behavior, and because people can't understand why a group that isn't "musically gifted" gets so much attention and has so many fans.

I've personally never seen this diva behavior that everyone talks about and, like I said, I have respect for the talent of each bandmember, so while I don't salivate over them, I don't so much get that blind hatred thing either.

yeah, I've never seen or heard, specifially, about this "God complex" or his diva behavior, so I can't judge that.

As for the music, I don't know how invtentive it is or how "musiclaly gifted" they are. I just know that I like the music. I don't think it's bad music. But I hear that a lot. That Creed sucks, or their music is horrible or whatnot.

And even if Scott Stapp is an asshole, it probably wouldn't change the fact that I like their music.
