song is good imo, have no idea why people are hating on this so much, strong song writing, vocals and musicianship, who cares if it's different from their past work, all that matters is that it is a good song.
people are hating it because it sounds absolutely nothing like the band we've been fans of for the last 5 years. that, and this is a blatant attempt at mainstream rock from a band that was originally pretty heavy.
also, they very strongly disagree with you that this is "strong songwriting, vocals, and musicanship."
pretty easy to see the hate, really
