Holy shit. Remember Trapt? I remember being in a car, being excited because my friend told me about this awesome new band he'd downloaded, then he played "Headstrong". That began my slow descent into hell.
I had a similar experience with that band Puddles of Mudd. I had never heard them and this guy I knew was talking them up like they were the next Nirvana. Needless to say I don't talk to that kid anymore.
That same friend made me see Puddle of Mudd live. I've never seen so many jean jackets without sleeves in my life.
