In the business that I manage we deal with screen printing/heat pressing of tee-shirts and jerseys a good bit. I recently had a request for “Breaking Benjamin” to be put on a few tee shirts. Now, while I have heard of this band, I do not listen to the radio so I had never actually heard them. So, in an effort to see if they were as bad as I imagined, I visited their myspace page. Wow, I thought that people stopped listening to this kind of crap a long time ago. What is hilarious is that these guys take themselves so damn seriously. Just look at how dark and emotional they are! Lead singer Ben Burnley has said that Nirvana is a huge influence. He has stated that he learned how to play guitar by listening to Nirvana’s Nevermind on repeat. Are you kidding me? What the hell went wrong then? Kurt Cobain would laugh and piss all over this shit you call music.
