"My Own Prison" is a boring, overlong slog. Another extremely obvious SOAD vote.

I really liked "My Own Prison" when it came out. Scott Stapp really didn't begin to seem like a clown until Creed's second album, where he turned the whole spiritual messiah figure thing into a gaudy self-fulfilling prophecy. None of their music has aged well, but the familiar Scott Stapp caricature wasn't really a thing when they were making the rounds for their first record. They were just one more band riding grunge's coattails.

I'd vote for it over a lot of the other junk in this tourney, but I've gained a newfound respect for System of a Down through these matchups. I don't like this as well as "Chop Suey" or "Toxicity" but I'll pick it over Creed eight days a week.

Stapp at his most Eddie Vedder here.

My Own Prison: This is legitimately a very good song but I've always hated his voice so much. In the music video, why is the guitar player pretending to sing? It's obviously not him... Scott's face and personality make me angry. 2:47.

Innervision: Never heard it before. I love their singing. Not a fan of the song, though. 1:28.

Going with Innervision because I hate Scott Stapp.

some of the shots of him in this video are so blatantly copied from the Jeremy video. the only thing missing is the patented Vedder upwards eyeroll.

Scott does beat Ed in the lower jaw extension though.

It is him. It's a different voice than Stapp's.

I think it would be pretty good with a different singer. It's my opinion. Jerk.

Well, he's imitating his voice then. It sounds like Stapp to me.

I don't think I'd ever heard "My Own Prison" before today, and when that voice came in but before they showed the guitarist singing, I thought "oh, I didn't think Creed had second vocalists". It is clearly a different voice with a different timbre, but the delivery is similar because... well, they are Superserious Creed Boys

I know "One", "Higher", "Arms Wide Open", "My Sacrifice", "One Last Breath", and that heavy one with the CGI video of dragons fighting or whatever where Stapp goes "LOOK AT MEH!!!"

Probably the best of the songs, though

You're right, it's a second vocalist. I am listening through my work computer speakers, so...
But, damn... would've been way funnier if he were pretending he was singing in the video...

That live performance is so bad... I just feel sorry for them. Mostly Scott. He's unbearable.

Don't say that. I'm not the only one who does it and I've been doing it for years, so... Damnit now my hands are sweaty.
