It's just a song people like what they like guess we just have to deal with it if we think differently.That was one of the songs off the first album I wanted them to play. Get Inside is a song that can get the crowd going and it makes a good set closer. I saw them close with it in 07and it was fine.

It was a good show. Halestorm, Stone Sour and Disturbed all did well. I wouldnít know how A7X did because I didnít watch their set. I don't listen to or care for A7X that much but I would think they would do more from City Of Evil isnít that the album that got them big and made them well known to everyone.

But thats just my theory. I don't mind anyway I've already seen them play a greatest hits set with the Rev, so I'm most looking forward to the new stuff.

Get Inside, however, I do not understand, they have three albums, an hour is enough time to play every popular song from them. I do hope this is rectified when I see them in London on Halloween.
Great point. I always assumed it was a tribute to the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas but lyrically I see what you mean now. The movie was about taking drugs to an obsessive level so I'm sure that has something to do with them not playing it.

I hope time heals those wounds and they go back to playing it at some point. I'm not a huge fan by any means but I really dig that song, especially live.

As far as Get Inside it's probably the Stone Sour song most like Slipknot to me. Definitely Top 3.

Didn't know they dropped wait and bleed, well anyway the point still stands, if you watch the making of the last album they point out it got the ball rolling, its what started them moving forward, like unholy confessions by Avenged, it was the first song to get them big airplay an shiz. Bother would've really put them on a high with a radio friendly hit. However, I never quite understood why Bother ss listed as 'Corey Taylor' on the Spider-Man soundtrack, off-topic, but its always confused me!

I can honestly say i've never heard Get Inside played on the radio before. But they played the shit out of 'Bother' when the album came out. I have no clue what Unholy Confessions is from A7x as i'm not a fan of theirs at all. Even if I don't like a band I can usually understand why they're popular but with A7X it completely boggles my mind as to why they're as popular as they are. It was cool to see Mike Portnoy trying to help out the musically less fortunate during their show though

Asylum is a good opener for Disturbed's show but the impact of it being the opener was lessened by the fact that not a lot of people know the song yet. Once the album comes out that should change though.

I'm going to the show tonight in Toronto. I've seen Disturbed twice i t he last 2 years, and while I like them, i'm mainly going for Stone Sour who I haven't seen since 2007 when they opened for Evanescence.

I think the dissapointment in playing Get Inside wasn't because it's a huge hit (although they made a video for it that got some rotation on MTV, MuchMusic, etc.), but because it's a concert staple for them, albeit after only 2 major tour cycles. Or it could be because there aren't any songs from the self titled album in the set at all.

Touche my friend...Touche....

Sadly "Bother" is what sold the album here in the US and damn near everywhere else. However I do think "Get Inside" is what sold it more for the diehards that didn't care for Bother that much and maybe slightly resented that the song was so bigh. It was a great opener like they did in '02 when the album was just released and it was a great closer around '07 when their next album came out. It just seemed to work w/ 30-30/150 as opener and Get Inside as the closer. I enjoy Get Inside the most on that first album but yes there are several other quality tracks they haven't done in awhile off that new album.

Pretty dead on there.

If they're going to play songs from City of Evil (in my opinion, their weakest album overall), they should be playing The Wicked End, Strength of the World or M.I.A. In any case, they're supporting a new album with a relatively short set. Sort of anyway. Their sets are always short. When headlining, they play for like an hour, which is kind of lame.

They should've played I Won't See You Tonight pt. 1 in honor of The Rev.

I just saw Uproar in Holmdel, NJ last night. Some people there were saying that it looked like M. Shadows wasn't actually singing and that it was prerecorded. I didn't notice anything that would make me believe that did anyone else? Not a fan of this band anyways but that would piss me off.
