No kidding. I was towards the back of our group one time and saw a car back out of his driveway indiscriminately, nearly taking out three or four of us. Fortunately, we had a shoulder to bail on, so not one person dropped a bike.

Don't forget the people who go full road rage mode the second they see a cyclist.

They had a discussion up here on the radio recently trying to name a band that came out in the past 5 or so years that could sell out a stadium, it was on sports talk but the guys who do the morning show used to be the morning guys on WBCN, the former alternative rock station up here, they coudn't name one nor could any listeners.

That kind of makes me wonder, though: how many bands ever wound up selling out stadiums within their first five years of existence? I'm guessing the list is pretty short (relatively speaking), especially in the last couple of decades.

I agree with this, and it was discussed in the segment, but in all honesty there really aren't any bands that have come out recently that I could see getting to that level ever.

The next Rolling Stones is no where to be found.

Even Guns 'n Roses took a few years to get to stadium level, and that's touring behind one of the greatest rock albums of all time. I can't think of any rock bands that have come out recently that could ever fill those shoes. Be sure, though, there were plenty in the 90's-2000 era (Avenged Sevenfold, Limp Bizkit, Korn, Slipknot, Lamb of God and probably a ton of butt rock bands I can't remember).

Oh, Foo Fighters! The kings of butt rock.

Exactly, 15-20 years ago yeah they existed, recently though the true band, in all forms, is dying.

I don't necessarily disagree that we're in a lull, but I believe you were saying that Soundgarden was the last of its kind. I just showed you there was an entire generation of music after they came along that packed out stadiums and festivals.

I never said Soundgarden was the last of its kind, I said there are no more true multi talented musicians/frontmen coming out these days.

I hope it's just a lull but with everyone being able to produce music these days with a laptop I don't see many more true rock bands making it big.

"Fell on black days" is still one of my most favorite songs of all time.

Chris Cornell's songbook is an incredible album. I'm not a huge audioslave or soundgarden fan, but the first time I heard songbook I couldn't stop listening to it. "As hope and promise fade" is incredible. Seems like a fitting song given the circumstances...
