I can understand someone not liking them but "radio butt rock?" I've never heard anyone even begin to denigrate them that way. There's so much to their sound that it's quite an insult to hurl one of the few consistently creative bands out there into that pile.
I don't mean to lower them to the standards of 3 doors down, seether and the like but the chord transitions and melodies just IMO not appealing. I get it, they were pioneers of a sound and were around for quite some time allowing bands in our genre to exist them having paved the ground, but it just has this alt-rock feel I just can't get into for the life of me. I don't really know how to describe it its just unaplealing to my ears.
