Everyone hated them even when everyone loved them. But when I was a teenager, Sixteen Stone was the shit. And I loved Razorblade Suitcase even more. I saw them headline Woodstock 99 and they rocked that fucker out. Why did we let this band down, America? Was Gavin too pretty? I don't wanna come back down from this cloud. This cloud. This cloud. This cloud.
I'll give you credit, Nick...there's no way this is "ironic" hipster posturing.
I took my sister to see them for her birthday when we were young and they were pretty solid live. A friend of mine offered to sell me their first two albums for $2 each so he could buy drugs, and then got insanely pissed when I checked to make sure they were in the cases before giving him the $4.
I know someone who's not a fan...

I've never NOT been a fan. They've always been one of my favorites.
It all went downhill after Razorblade Suitcase.

Musically they are okay, but Gavin Rosdale is one of the worst lyricists to ever front a group. He makes Scott Weiland look intelligent.
