    ok, in my best Borgo, the slight "come hither" glance that promises a summer slip 'n slide, the tusseled hair that guarantees an exhausted cardinal knowledge...the fact that she is smokin hot :D

    Anyone who listens or listened to Creed should be shot in the face for the sake of humanity.

    It amazes me that a wannabe Pearl Jam dud sold as many records as they did. Wow the 90's really sucked hard.

    I have a few creed songs from their 1st album on my ipod. I still like Creed's 1st album.

    That a really terrible thing to admit.

    Almost as bad a Ruby's thread from earlier in the week. This may be worse though...

    the problem is that rock is dead. this isnt the 60s/70s anymore when drugs and social problems motivated people to create interesting music. hip hop has ruined everything when mtv and the media brought it to the masses

    people are like sheep...you show something on tv and they are into it

    While her fappability pushed it over the top, so did Mutt Lange who also made massive albums for AC/DC and Def Leppard.

    I would NEVER listen to a Creed album.

    Good read, except I dont think Katy Perry deserves to be on it.

    She is a GREAT pop musician.
