WHAT’S WRONG WITH MODERN ROCK RADIO? JUST ASK 12 STONES.
Amy Sciarretto of Noisecreep’s description of 12 Stones as “radio rockers” is perfect, given the band is best known for vocalist Paul McCoy’s rap cameo on the radio version of Evanescence’s smash hit “Bring Me Back to Life.” I haven’t heard a lick about 12 Stones since then and didn’t even realize they were still around until today when I saw that Noisecreep is premiering their new song “We Are One.”
Seems that 12 Stones have gotten hip to the times and dropped the rapping shtick, but unfortunately they haven’t dropped the yarler vocals and sucky radio alt-rock shtick too. They also don’t seem to realize that the four chord progression they use in this song is the same one that’s been recycled by NickelTheoryofaSmileEmptySaliva for the past decade. Oh well, you’re still about 10 years behind the curve, guys… maybe next time.
For a lesson in what’s wrong with today’s rock radio format, head on over to Noisecreep to listen to the completely generic and unoriginal new 12 Stones song.
