I saw Volbeat the next night in Fort Wayne, IN. Danko Jones played just before Volbeat. I had heard the guys on That Metal Show speak very highly of Danko and sought them out on iTunes and Pandora weeks before the show. I couldn't really find anything worth listening to. It was all very Nikleback-ish and lyrically very immature. I hoped it would at least be tolerable live. I was wrong. The set list included songs with sexual content ripped straight out of the 80s. Danko's "Big Bob the DJ" style of talk/rap/speak while whining over being dissed by girls and his love for oral sex was about as cheesy as anything I've ever seen since I was 14. I might have liked that then, but c'mon! In a nutshell, DJ takes douchbaggery to an all time high accompanied by a drummer and bass player will hopefully be able to use their awesome talents in a musical act instead a side show.
As always, Volbeat was awesome! Great set list, very tight playing, and the addition of Rob Caggiano was just the right move!
