So, why exactly is "With Arms Wide Open-Creed" considered horrible?

One of my biggest complaints about the song (and Creed in general) is the criminal underuse of Mark Tremonti. He gets like a five second solo in WAWO. Tremonti's work since then shows that he's far better with a better singer/songwriter (Alter Bridge with Myles Kennedy) and simply allowed to do his own thing lyrically (he writes a lot of Alter Bridge's music and his solo album is pretty damn good).

This. Hell, even his vocals could have been used more (granted, My Own Prison and Ode utilized that, but nothing else really did). He was terribly constricted in Creed. When they play live now, he adds solos to the older songs.

Does he really? That's pretty cool.

Creed is awesome. I mean, yeah, they are bad, but in an awesome kind of way.

I like them. People don't like them because their music is maybe a bit too positive, upliftingish and it's very post grunge. I don't love the song, but I don't mind it. There are way better Creed songs, like "What IF" and "My Own Prison"
if you wouldn't mind i would like to lose
