Six Bands You Didn't Know Were Still Around


Coal Chamber
Speaking of bands who somehow found a way to keep it going despite all the odds, Coal Chamber quietly disbanded in 2003, but they're back! In 2011, they reformed without anyone really caring or noticing, and they've been plugging away at reviving nu-metal ever since.

I have to give Coal Chamber for one thing, though: they're a lot funnier to listen to than most of the bands on this list. While Sevendust is just boring and generic, Coal Chamber is hilarious and stupid. They also have the weird hair and piercings to laugh at. I'm not sure if they kept that since reuniting, but I hope so.


Powerman 5000
And finally, there's Powerman 5000. These guys are seriously dedicated, having released ten albums of their bullshit industrial alt-metal. It's sort of an accomplishment that they've managed to keep this going for this long, so kudos to them, I guess.

I would have thought Mindless Self Indulgence (also still a band, sadly) would fill anyone's need for music like this, but since they only have five records, I guess Powerman 5000 is there to water it down a bit and satisfy all your aching yearning for more.

I personally don't care much for these bands, but the dude that wrote this article is an absolute idiot. I know lots and lots of people who do like these bands. This article is complete trash.

How do you even have a job writing about music like this when its obvious that you've never actually listened to an entire album by any of these bands. Go back to reviewing the greatest hits of Donnie and Marie and leave the Rock N Roll stuff to someone actually qualified.  Please sir, if this is your day job....QUIT IT!!!

Mmm...it's a fairly shitty list because at least one of those bands have had no less than 10 top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. I actually think 5FDP has grown and matured in their style of music. Powerman 5000, Coal Chamber, Se7endust, Chevelle and Saliva, all bands who I still listen to, if not for nostalgic reasons, haven't really moved past their prime sound and are stuck in the early 00's. (BTW: Filter used to be good, and nobody makes fun of Jimmy Urine. I think the author is just a scene jumper, trying to hit up the latest trends to stay relevant.

i...actually kinda like most of these bands. i don't think they're earth-shatteringly great or anything, but i enjoy their music. so i'm inclined to be offended by this article. but then i remembered that it was written by corey "post-hardcore/emo is my favorite type of music" deiterman. consider the source before you rage, y'all.

I've opened for both Saliva and Powerman 5000. The fact most of you don't even know who I am speaks volumes for how well those guys are doing. At least Chevelle still sells out arenas (like the aforementioned Bayou Music Center).
