Usually, I'd say that's the case, but considering Mr. Bungle is often lumped in this genre, it can't be all bad. So, as usual, I wade through all the bullshit to bring you about 60 minutes of 'good' funk-metal. Now, I might be a little biased since I grew up with Faith No More and Snot and things of that ilk, but whatever, some good tunez here for springtime, and not a 311 song among 'em.
Some highlights include a cut by Tom Morello's (Rage Against The Machine) first band which isn't really that bad, and has some fancy guitar work of course, and a cut by the pre-KoRn band L.A.P.D. (which apparently stands for 'Love and Peace, Dude'--how stupid is that??) Also, some classix like Fishbone and Sugar Ray (yes, they used to be a funk-metal band) thrown in for good measure. ALSO a demo cut by Red Hot Chili Peppers...possibly their oldest song?
