    Yeah. I'm no NIN fan but I went to their headline set as the alternative was even less to my liking. The crowd didn't go much past the sound board, if at all that.

    That'd represent a rather guitar heavy top line. Not saying it's not possible, but it's been a while since they've been that "similar". I'd guess you'd get one of those three at most.

    I actually resent paying full price for 12 minutes of music. First album was a Weezer rip off, the two tracks I've heard have been Beatles rip offs. Thoroughly enjoyable but derivative as heck.
