I had one alcoholic beverage and this is now really bugging me: Is Creed or Puddle of Mudd the worst band of all time?
On the one hand, Creed totally rips-off Pearl Jam and they preach Christianity, but on the other hand, Puddle of Suck rips-off Kurt Cobain and they were discovered by Fred Durst. Well, Nirvana hasn’t put out an album in a while, so maybe it’s okay to rip them off. And maybe since Pearl Jam sucks now, it’s okay to rip them off as long as you rip the 1991 Pearl Jam. In terms of band name, Creed is terrible for the obvious reasons, but Puddle of Mudd is just stupid. A puddle of mud? It turns out I was in the same room when they came up with it: “Hey, what should we call our band? We rip-off Nirvana so maybe it should be like the same but different like Wirvana or Nirvono?” Then I said, “I think it should be something that reminds people of a pile of shit because that’s what you are.”
