Well to give you the same answer that xFiruath gave you...

"We serve a wide range of metal and rock fans, whether we personally enjoy the music or not. One man's crap is another man's treasure."

What he said.

This singer reminds me of the guy from overkill, what with all his crazy hand movements...but then i hear his voice and I think Robert Plant lol

dudeman, do you realize the stupidity and extreme absurdity of that last statement?

Does America Online new only report things about America? No, it reports all things that it's readers would most likely be interested in. things that mightnot be exactly what direcly effects them, but is still vastly relevant.

This band, seemingly influenced by bands like Led Zeppelin, in an age where "rock" is predominantly dead, have risen up and made an interesting niche in the music scene. People who listen to metal, both contemporary and classic alike, a genre that evolved from rock, would be interested on occasion to hear about a band like this. I know i am, and I listen to bands like Brain drill and Gojira.

all i'm saying is it's an upbeat mainstream band that kinda reminds me of hanson, but it really doesn't surprise that they're on here, this site has really gone downhill in the last few years. and a site with the name metal underground shouldn't be supporting this mainstream hippie-core crap, you can read about this band on mtv and vh1 websites, this is like me going to the cmt website to read about deicide.

Hippycore? You sir have inspired me to create a new genre!

On another note, some people take this site's name way too literally. If we were to cover only the underground bands, we'd be called UndergroundMetal.com not t'other way around.

either way it's not metal and metal is in the name of the website maybe "musicunderground.com" would be more suitable if you're going to be covering bands like this.

I can respect a desire to not see bands that would be considered less than "underground" or "metal" showing up on here, but unfortunately there are too many variables to let anybody go. To use my previous example, I don't feel Disturbed is metal at all, but a couple hundred thousand people would vehemently disagree with me. "Metal" is a very fluid concept. Is Vintersorg metal? It's all acoustic and uses only clean vocals, but is clearly not anything close to rock or pop. Is the "Damnation" album by Opeth metal? No growls, no distortion, yet it sure as hell isn't Hanson. It could even be argued that by modern standards Black Sabbath isn't metal, but it sure influenced what we have today.

I'm also going to have to disagree that the site quality has gone down. We post more news, about more bands, than ever before. We also have seriously upped both the quality and quantity of both reviews and interviews. If you have some specific criticism about something you feel could be improved I'd love to hear it however, as we want to be the best metal site on the web.

all of these bands you are naming in one way or another sounds metal, the answer does not at all, it's a cheap led zeppelin knock off. i now dub this band led hanson.

While I understand your argument. And I do agree to an extent, you have the option not to click on the article. The band's name was in it. Unless this is the first time you have heard them, I'm sure you knew if you liked them or not. The name of the site isn't going to change, domain names being what they are, and we will probably see some more stuff about this band in the future.
Point taken. Acknowledge and move on. Not really a fan of them myself. I just poked my head in to see if the new song was worth it.

Again the moniker of metal can be disputed more than ever these days. Igor Cavalera said that Justice were a very metal band, but I'd disagree with him. In my opinion, Ill Bill and Necro fall under the metal tag almost as much as rap, but thousands will disagree with me. Some people consider Led Zep metal, so if The Answer are a Led Zep knock off as you say, then alot of people will consider them metal by those standards.

and the a$$holes that think led zep is metal don't know metal. i'm a huge zeppelin fan but they are not metal, and i dont really agree with the fact that their news is posted on this site, but more so than the answer, zep did in some ways help shape metal, the answer is nowhere relatively close to metal, i don't mean to come off as a complete d***, thats just the way i see it.
