mushroomhead, pretty good band. good music with plenty of talent. too bad they fall under the 'cookie cutter bands' such as slipknot and mudvayne. its been done before, its been done, it worked but now its being over used, ya know, the mask thing. it was cool when one bad ass band wore masks but now every damn band needs to wear them. still a good band none the less. but i still like mudvayne as my fav.

In my opinion, this whole mask-costume-thing will never get used too much. I mean, it's been in the music business for years, that few bands use these crazy masks and costumes to express them selves with a different touch. I love Mushroomhead, i love Slipknot and i love Mudvayne. Well, not that much as the first two bands, but they have few good songs.......

great band i just started listening when my friend let me borrow xiii which is great by the way
Mushroomhead are great! Theyre like Slipknot but with a heart if you know what i mean, its a pity they arent getting alot of media coverage, as songs like "Destroy the world around me" on the XIII album deserve alot more credit than they get, seems that their arch rivals Slipknot have stolen alot of Mushroomheads spotlight which is a pity because these explore so much in one genre.
Just for the record, Mushroomhead have been doing the mask for years, before Slipknot even existed, and Mudvayne rarely wear make up any more.
Mushroomhead are a good band, not great, but good. I totally agree with what Breaker_17 said, they are basically Slipknot with a heart (and more keyboard), and yeah Mushroomhead are much more experimental, melodic and overall a much better band.
mushroomhead are great
see mushroomhead is one of the fews bands that have sold over a million cds without a record label contract very few other bands have done that i think kiss and a couple other bands did it to but in my book that makes mushroomhead 10 times better than any band curently out and by the way mushroomhead formed in early 1993.
slipknot later 1995. so mushroomhead would have been doing the whole mask/jump suits thing before slipknot. but anyways you can't compare the two bands they are totally 2 different bands slipknot mainlly screaming music. mushroomhead has a little of everything metal industrial techno. plus in mushroomhead you got more band experiance. i mean hatrix members integrity members any of you remember integrity one if not the most hard bands to come out of cleveland.oh well i got to go
"never let it go" keep the shrooming alive
Mushroomhead had the masks first,but they weren't popular so thats why Slipknot had started the mask thing.Cuz they got popular first.But Mushroomhead is a great band.Just too bad J-mann left the band.
