i think he's laughing cos they're not unknown by any means. it's creed with a different singer.
seether dont suck cos they're mainstream, they suck cos they make shit music.
While that is true, their sound is totally different. Their talent really shines on "Blackbird" and "AB III", the Creed sound (in which they were always labeled as since "One Day Remains") is pretty much absent nowadays.
that's the problem with trying to follow up great albums. audio secrecy was by no means a bad album, if another band had released it for their first album it would probably be held in higher regard. it's just that come what(ever) may and the self titled albums were really good. audio secrecy also had a bit more of a catcy tone to it, but was still pretty damn good.

Re: WTF is going on with the Music Industry
I heard a report on the Radio that Slash was quoted as saying "Corey (Taylor) is a great guy but he just didn't feel right for us" about a week ago when talking about the Taylor to VR rumors. A shame if thats true.
