If you were born in the late-eighties or early-nineties, you’d have been alive long enough to remember the assault of Grunge & Hard Rock which ruled the Rock music airwaves at the time, including its evolution into the form of Alternative Rock during the later-nineties that saw Rap Rock & Butt Metal reach unprecedented levels of mainstream appeal; Suddenly, everyone wanted a chain-wallet, a soul patch & some JNCO’s to look as tough as possible – While sad for some, many were thankful when these genres were usurped by Emo, Electro Pop & Indie as the noughties went on, erasing every existence of these Hot Topic-adjacent bands from the market. The silence came, enveloping the industry in cheerful Folksy “HEY!” chants & stripping everyone of the brooding rage they all held inside – But then, right when you were least expecting it, Shinedown appeared with a new look, a new energy & a fierce attitude unlike any other.
