Among the Best
Shinedown is a band confident in its live performance capabilities. After each album release, they launch a massive tour, with other popular hard rock bands co-headlining. In 2006, they toured with Seether, Flyleaf, and Halestorm, and they later opened for Godsmack and Rob Zombie. In 2013, the band toured with Three Days Grace and then Papa Roach. Brent Smith and his band have continually found a way to surpass any hard rock subgenre while still associating themselves with the best hard rock performers. In the spring of 2013, Shinedown released two live studio EPs with ten acoustic cover songs. Songs included Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” and Adele’s “Someone Like You.”

To Be or Not to Be
While columnists have classified Shinedown as post-grunge, arena rock, and pop-rock, the band has adamantly stated they don’t fall into any particular hard rock subgenre. “We’re just a rock ’n’ roll band.” Every album and tour carries unique subtleties and characteristics. Their first album, for example, stayed entirely away from guitar solos, while their fifth album, Threat to Survival, was heavily pop-sounding. They have cited Stone Temple Pilots, Otis Redding, Pink Floyd, and Iron Maiden as inspiration, which, perhaps, contributes to the band’s diverse discography. Shinedown’s method of evolving over the course of each and every album has helped them remain relevant year after year. Reality is, most decade-oriented rock bands seem to fade from popularity after an album or two. This is not the case for Shinedown.
