Godsmack is tight and they have some pretty cool riffs. Sully is a great showman as well so you had better throw a mean a$$ accordian solo there cowboy.

seen both Godsmack and Motley, Godsmack 3 times 2001,2002 and like 04. crue twice ( 1989 and last year. Godsmack is by far the tighter band.

brianboitano, Godsmack puts on one of the best shows around. Everything they do onstage is meant to entertain, and they do it to bring the fans a good show, that's what we deserve and every Godsmack concert I've been to has brought it and then some. I've seen them three times and each show was different and amazing in it's own way. Hell, they made Metallica look like b****es in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.
