You asked for opinions, there's mine.
Is this in the right forum?
Thanks for the opinion. By the way, I intentionally originally included this post in the clan forum because thought might be a better chance to get attention of members from the clan champion Metallica, and to get more attention in general.
Anyway, Godsmack has released a lot of songs worth hearing, that I and millions of other people like. Moreover, I like their sound overall better than Metallica. But I do respect your opinion.
In the last 15 years, Godsmack is the number one selling hard rock band in terms of albums (CDs) sold, more than Metallica or Linkin Park, for example.
"The band [Godsmack formed in 1995] has had three consecutive number one albums (Faceless, IV, and The Oracle) on the Billboard 200. The band also has parked a ratified 19 top ten rock radio hits, including 15 songs in the Top Five. A record breaking amount of top ten singles by any other rock artist.
. . . Godsmack have sold over 17 million records in just over a decade, yet despite the decline of CD sales in recent years, they have proven to be one of the highest-grossing artists in the United States."
