And you thought the swine flu was bad? Creed is back.

Swine flu ain't the worst of it; Creed is reforming for a tour and a new album this summer.

And if that wasn't enough to make you cough up your lunch, singer Scott Stapp calls this special occasion a "renewing and a rebirth."

However, while this is a most unfortunate announcement and a giant setback for humanity ... I, for one, am quite excited.

Yes--excited. Why? Let me tell you why. There was so much DREADFUL music dominating the charts in the late nineties (e.g. Creed), that all that swill (see also: Limp Bizkit, boy bands, Masta P, etc) spurred on some of the best music as a reaction to the big load of crap on the airwaves. So a return from the schmoes of Creed could spur some kids to get together and write some incredible new reactionairy stuff. And if you ask me, that's what the music world needs right now--someone to hate, some awful bands to loathe. Who better than the grand-daddy of 'em all.

Creed, welcome back.

Of course, it's possible the rest of the world has picked up on the fact that Creed and it's fantasticly self-righteous music is a joke, and will treat this "rebirth" as such. Could be duller than when Guns N Roses put out Chinese Democracy. But my hope is that America eats it up so young America can chew it up, swallow it, and spit something new, exciting, and wild back in their faces.

Nice headline. I loathe Creed about as much as I do Nickelback. Ick.

i have actually had that discussion at great length at the bar a few times: who is worse?? Nickleback or Creed? Nickleback seems to be the lesser of the two evils.

You may be on to something, perhaps Creed's return is what CAUSED the swine flu...

BTW - The secret word I had to type to post this comment, was ingous.

As in, "Creedingous" - The heinous disease people contract when they listen to Creed. Symptoms include: thinking you know what good music is, singing through your nose, and trying to resurrect your career by making p0rns with other male rock stars.

Used in a sentence: "Don't listen to 'My Own Prison' or you'll get creedingous."

- You know who this is.
