Bad as in recent Shinedown/Nickelback. A.K.A. lousy bubble gum pop "rock"
I sure hope that's not the case for Skillet. I don't think I have it in me to bump another band out of my fave five (like I did with Shinedown), because they went with a watered-down pop rock sound when we know they can deliver so much more than just that.
I really don't think I can survive if AB goes in that direction (thankfully, they always give me the assurance they won't and assures quite the opposite.)
