They're this generation's Styx.....cheesy nonsense that sold by the bucket load, but will be a mere footnote in rock history a decade from now.

i don't think i could have said it any better than the person above....if i just may add...

There is literally a 0.0 percent chance Creed will ever be nominated for the Rock Hall. In fact, I don't think they even let Scott Stapp anywhere near Cleveland just to be safe.

It really depends how much "innovation and influence" is weighed vs. actual quality. I can't stand Creed's music.

I don't see how aping Pearl Jam poorly earns them credit for post-grunge.
Posted by William on Friday, 03.30.07 @ 22:16pm
Oh great. Shutup about Creed and Pearl Jam people. Two completely different bands. How can you rip off a voice? A voice is a voice, it can't be ripped off. And you may not like the music that they created, but you can't deny all the bands that they helped make popular. Nickelback, Hinder, Fuel, Staind etc.
Posted by Joseph on Tuesday, 04.3.07 @ 15:14pm
I didn't say anything about the voice (but it's funny how many more Eddie Vedder soundalikes there were in various post-grunge bands). My whole point was that Creed and a thousand other bands took most of what they had from Pearl Jam, so Pearl Jam should get the credit.
Posted by William on Tuesday, 04.3.07 @ 16:29pm
I doubt that.

wow, everyone knows creed is 1 of the worst rock bands in history, seriously. And faces in the tree cover is so dumb, hell human clay!? scott stapp is the biggest moron who ever lived, he makes a dick out of himself, got beat up, and was supposedly in a porno with kid rock and some hookers. Hell creed music is just pathetic, with arms wide open? The only way is one? what if I!? Shity post grunge crap. And in 1 of their videos scott stapp pulls himself out of the water? wtf! i wish the scott stapp in the water dragged the scott stapp from the boat and drowned the fucker. The interesting thing is that scott challenged fred durst 2 a boxing match, lol 2 frontmans from the worst rock bands ever goin at, wonderful, it would b great 2 c those guys beat each 2 death and then the world would b a beter place. sorry scot that your human clay hasnt been weathered in your own prison.

I don't care what any of you NUMBNUTS say, they are a good band and they should be in

hahaha...wow...whats wrong with people these days
Posted by Dave on Monday, 04.30.07 @ 11:28am
1/2 Alice In Chains Ripoff + 1/3 Pearl Jam Ripoff + 1/6 Bible Thumping morons = Creed.

Thank you Dave for making me laugh harder than I have for the past 3 weeks or so.....hehehe
Posted by SG on Saturday, 09.8.07 @ 15:12pm
Heh, love this "Essential Album" addition to the pages. My Own Prison, for example, is a surprisingly tolerable, occasionally great, trip down memory lane for those that missed the early 90's alt-radio, and in particular, the Seattle acts.
Posted by Casper on Friday, 09.21.07 @ 13:40pm
Pshh... Stapp is such an Eddie Vedder wannabe, it pisses me off. Listen to his voice. That alone should ban him from stepping foot in the Hall of Fame building.
Posted by Tom on Sunday, 11.11.07 @ 09:35am
Perhaps if their lead singer wasn't a jack ass...but it's all over now.
Posted by Jared on Saturday, 03.22.08 @ 23:32pm
However much Stapp sounds like Vedder, no one can write melodies quite like guitarist Mark Tremonti. If you hate Creed just because of Stapp you should check out Tremonti's new band Alter Bridge, they are unlike any other band out there today.
Posted by Steve on Sunday, 07.20.08 @ 21:45pm
Creed should definately be entered into the rock n roll hall of fame.
Posted by Adam Parker on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 06:29am
uh - NO!
Posted by Dameon on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 09:01am
I, for one, think that Creed deserves to be in the R&R Hall of Fame. I'm a huge fan of both Creed and their former frontman, Scott Stapp and they are the best band out there, in my opinion.
Posted by V. J. Raven on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 11:23am
Why does everyone think that just because we don't believe a band doesn't deserve induction into the Hall of Fame means that we are haters?
Posted by Dameon on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 11:46am
I think they should. They were a really entertaining band and had a great live performance as well. The lyrics were really good and sent out positive messages that were well received and understood by their fans. For the number of years that they were together....they were really successful so why not give them the credit for it? Just my opinion of course & long time fan.
Posted by Pooh on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 11:52am
EXACTLY, Daemon. It's called knowing who has been influential, incomparable in what they do, critically acclaimed, been important, etc.- and Creed in all likelihood will not be considered for the HOF. Big commercial success alone does not automaticlaly make one a legend or an important, impactful artist.
Posted by JR on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 11:59am
I love it when haters know so much about Scott Stapp yet they hate the guy. They know every move he does. Get over it! It's about the band and the music. Move on! Words from the Bullets song "I laugh aloud 'cause my life Has gotten inside someone else's mind" So true haters! He's in your mind....LOL
Posted by Yes Sir on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 12:00pm
Alter Boys?? That's funny! Their touring I think trailer parks now. Their running low on cash and the weasel looking lead-singer they have blows.
Posted by AlterBoys on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 12:08pm
For the number of years that they were together....they were really successful so why not give them the credit for it? (Pooh)
Posted by Dameon on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 12:48pm
For those of you bashing CREED, you are just jealous HATERS!
Posted by Kim on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 13:11pm
Yeah, I think I du have sum of there albums, Kim.
Posted by Liam on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 13:15pm
I have a couple as well. They had some good songs and I know a lot of people loved them; but such is the life of a Rock Star and the love and hate that follows them. It is in my humble opinion that they will never be inducted - sorry!
Posted by Dameon on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 13:31pm
All there songs were good on each album. I buy rock now and it's mostly filler songs. Everyone of Creed's songs was worth being on there. For that alone, they should be inducted. Weathered was at the top spot for eight weeks, few records can beat that. Weathered just had an underlying solidness to it.
Posted by lee on Monday, 07.21.08 @ 18:39pm
To me there are several reasons why Creed would deserve a place in the Rock Hall of Fame:
Posted by Barreegriff on Tuesday, 07.22.08 @ 06:10am
Looked at this list as to why Creed should be in the Hall. I'd agree w/you on #1 & 4, and that's about it. It wasn't the band's w/similarities to Creed's style, it was the other way around.
Posted by Cheesecrop on Tuesday, 07.22.08 @ 17:11pm
are you kidding they made great music!! I loved them and wish they were still together!
Posted by terri on Wednesday, 07.23.08 @ 07:32am
Vamos la CREED no Coração
Posted by Danilo on Wednesday, 07.23.08 @ 18:05pm
Creed emerged from a good-sized pack of post-grunge contenders to become one of the biggest-selling rock bands in America during the late '90s. so they should be in
Posted by Bob on Saturday, 08.9.08 @ 22:28pm
Oh god no. They are terrible, all their songs sound exactly the same, and just everything except their guitarist is bad. But I must admit, Tremonti is a great shredder, especially if you check out his work with Alter Bridge.
Posted by Joey on Wednesday, 08.27.08 @ 09:43am
These guys aren't terrible. They're AWESOME! But that doesn't mean that they're good. Does that make sense?
Posted by Me on Thursday, 10.2.08 @ 17:55pm
Creed is terrible.
Posted by AirSuppleee on Thursday, 12.18.08 @ 21:26pm
If creed gets in the standered would be set so low that soulja boy tell em and Katy Perry would be welcomed into the R&R hall of fame for there acomplishments such as making the world a worse place.Creed is a skid-mark on rock history and a overall terrible band.
Posted by Chris-31 on Sunday, 01.4.09 @ 22:24pm
Creed is Legendary. The most successful and biggest rock band from 1997 - 2004
Posted by Alter Bridge on Friday, 03.13.09 @ 23:38pm
Eeewww! Creed?! I admit I liked a few of their songs but they are nothing to write home about!
Posted by Antonio on Friday, 04.3.09 @ 05:13am
its the rock and roll hall of fame. its like shitting into your hands instead of using the toilet. and then arguing about which shit is stickier. its archaic. dust. but creed still wont get in :p
Posted by dave rocks on Sunday, 04.5.09 @ 15:46pm
Attention one and all:
Posted by Cheesecrop on Saturday, 05.2.09 @ 05:48am
However, they did pioneer a new (terrible) style of music, that some have termed as "post-grunge." Look at Nickelback, Hinder, Daughtry, Fuel, Staind, Puddle of Mudd; whether they admit it or not, they draw a tremendous amount from Creed.
Posted by Sam on Tuesday, 02.23.10 @ 14:37pm
Creed is a band Tallahassee, Florida that became one of the 90’s biggest-selling rock bands. Creed disbanded in 2004 after three multi-platinum albums, selling an estimated 35 million records worldwide. The four original members, Scott, Mark, Tom, and Ryan reunited in 2009 and created a new album called Full Circle. In April 2010 they began The 20-10 Tour to perform their new album. InSeats.com has great deals on Creed tickets for all of the stops on their current tour.
Posted by jenn on Tuesday, 06.22.10 @ 14:47pm
Jenn you have their names totally wrong. It's Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips, and Brian Marshall. Tom and Ryan? No idea who that is.
Posted by JB on Thursday, 06.24.10 @ 21:39pm
"Were they super innovative? Well actually despite those that say they are a PJ or Alice in Chains rip off I'd say Creed WAS. Creed was one of the first to use a combination of clean guitar tones in aggressive music for dynamics purposes. Most Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains songs are one or the other - pretty much straight up solid guitar sound but no drastic switch from clean and melodic to anthemic beat you over the head chorus in the same song."
Posted by Sam on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 07:11am
Creed, along with Nickelback, will be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Shame.
Posted by Lee on Monday, 07.22.13 @ 14:24pm
Calling Creed a Pearl Jam ripoff s an insult to Pearl Jam.
Posted by Max on Sunday, 04.24.16 @ 12:11pm
You posters are hilarious. Hang tight my friends. It's not up to you to judge unless you're willing to open you're own life to be judged. Throw down or shut up.
