GODSMACK's ERNA: We're Not An ALICE IN CHAINS Clone Band

GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna believes that his band is more original-sounding than they're being given credit for. When asked by Launch recently how he feels about the way the group is perceived by critics, Erna said, "I think the only misconception is that we were pegged as an ALICE IN CHAINS clone band at one time, which I don't get. I don't think we sound anything like them. I mean there's definitely influences there, but there's influence from ZEPPELIN and SABBATH and PANTERA, and everybody else. It's just that we're all molded from everybody from our past. These are some of the bands that we grew up listening to, or enjoy today, and sometimes it triggers an idea. So, there could be hints of influences there, but that kind of got on my nerves for a while. But with a name like GODSMACK, how could people not go there?!"
