Maybe this is old news, but it's something new and disgusting to me. Yesterday, I was at a used record shop, and found Die Kreuzen's album "Cement" in the bargain bin. Having remember them somewhat from the early eighties (and the price being $3.99), I figured I'd see what they were up to in the early 90's.

After 5 minutes, I could not get the thing out of my CD player and out on to the street fast enough. What the fuck happened to these guys?? Motley Crue did what they were doing a million times better! Rolling Eyes

Worst metal ever. I can only hope that that band has disbanded forever, now.

ACK!

The first Die Kreuzen LP was excellent. I still remember Tim Yohannon's Max R & R review. It was simply "This is fucking great, this is fucking great, this is fucking great...." Over and over. That was it. I think their second record was pretty good too. Thanks for the tip, I'll stay away from this "Cement" disc if I ever see it.

I remember that interview. I also remember alot of us walked out of thier show after they transformed into "Balad" metal band. Sounded like bad soul asylum.

I thought their first album sucked. I never listened to them after that. They gave me one of their "Ed Gein" shirts 'cause I had a band called the Ed Gein Fan Club. I did a Johnny Rotten and wrote "I Hate" above their name on the shirt.

I was really shocked...I'd heard them in the background at First Ave or Grumpy's back in the day, and had the impression that they were challenging Husker Du for the land speed record.

I don't get the Soul Asylum reference, as it was all screeching high pitched vocals, with (literally Rolling Eyes ) wheedley-wheedley guitar solos. A prime example of a bad metal band.

There's an example of a band that made a direction change and shouldn't have.

I like Soul Asylum. They transitioned well in to the mainstream because they had talented songwriting. The backbone of any good band.

Yeah, but to be fair, weren't Die Kreuzen one of many, many great punk bands that started sucking in the latter '80s?

DRI is the only other band that I can think of that took a similar route. Then, again, I stopped listening to NEW punk after Squirrel Bait 1986 (I liked them a lot) so I'm no expert.

I hope the list isn't too long.
