Shinedown Tickets: What to Expect
Shinedown is often said to be a "melodic hard rock" band that owes much of its flavor to the grunge bands of the early 1990s. Shinedown has been compared to Nickelback, Alice in Chains and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Shinedown at, times, features dark music, while at other times is clearly reflective of classic, Southern rock.
The Sound of Madness features emotional, often politically charged, songs, as evident in their single, "Devour," which was a protest to George Bush and the Iraq War.
