Creed, the Scott Stapp-fronted 1990s staple that Google thinks is the worst band in the world but East Coast intellectuals have decided is not that bad, is going back on tour and recording another album. Their tour, which begins April 13 in Chicago and lasts a month, will feature the band playing their first two albums, My Own Prison and Human Clay, from start to finish. Their new album is currently being recorded, and it'll be their first since their 2009 effort Full Circle.

About the new album, Scott Stapp told Rolling Stone, "We spent about three to four weeks together jamming and writing new material... We feel five [new songs] have the symmetry and continuity within themselves and will make the record. So if you want to look at it from that perspective, we’re halfway there."

So, depending on your perspective, we're either halfway to hearing the return of one of the most underrated bands of the 1990s or halfway to driving off a cliff whenever these new songs come on the radio. What do you think? Is Creed secretly kind of good? Or just totally bad? Tell us below.
