I hoped it'd be true
they're not inherently bad, not at all, but they seem absolutely stuck in what they are doing. Like, move on! Do something new already!

I love their first record to be honest. Everlong and My Hero are awesome. But everything is pop rock bullshit

Fuck you Liam you got my hopes up.

Grohl is an absolute horrible songwriter, and his vocals and guitar work are not helping them at all.

Their only good stuff is their first album (more or less), Learn to Fly, Everlong, and The Pretender.

But holy shit do I cringe at everything else. If only Kurt lived.

They're past the point where they could just leave. They'll be around until Dave dies. Like the Stones.

Are they still around? I always thought of Puddle of Mudd being the new Ugly Kid Joe.

I think they are. There was rumor about same lineup reunion but they couldn't make it
However they started a joint co-headlining European tour with Skid Row in October 2013 kicking off the tour in Southampton, UK.
I prefer UKJ comparing to puddle of mud.

:lol:

I think Taylor Hawkins said in an interview that they are taking a hiatus because "the world needs a little break from us". I think some here would agree with that.

I also kinda hoped it was true... They sound great, but at the same time their artistic approach and their sound is a little conservative in my opinion...
