They really have nothing original about them. Dunno why some are so salty about it

They are nice for what they are, a novelty type of band. Nothing innovative here. Enjoyable to listen to and fun just not original


Considering the current state of bro country, dull pattern nonbro/roots/Texas country, thousands of similarly obscure "mix guitar and macbooks" bands and the ubiquitous R&B/pop scene, a really great LZ ripoff is pretty fricking original, actually.

This. It's like the new Bruno Mars stuff. It's nothing groundbreaking or original, just a new take on stuff that's already been done.It's not necessarily a bad thing, it's still fun to listen to.

So much this!

Seriously, you count the number of tracks played on 92.3 not from 15 or more years ago that feature actual f$&king guitars and drums on one hand, and they’re all by bands that were popular 20 years ago. All of this synth pop being pushed as rock makes my blood boil. Greta Van Fleet is a breath of fresh air in a stale genre.

Of course it’s better than bro country and shite like that. I think they are fun to listen to, but they aren’t original. It’s not really a knock on them.

For example; Sturgill Simpson has obvious similarities to old school country artists, but he’s put his own spin on it combining psychedelic rock and other genres. No one really compares to him in country. GVF isn’t anything I haven’t heard before, and no matter what anyone says, it’s absoltely a LZ ripoff. I like them, just calling it what it is.

Kingdom Come got blasted for being clones of LZ in the late 80’s. Apparently most of you would really like them!

Hopefully GVF will silence all the critics who decry a lack of originality

They've released a cover of Adele's rolling in the deep

Yes they did, and they disappeared into obscurity very quickly. Just like GVF will be a fuzzy memory in a year or so. Kudos to the band for being mentioned in the same sentence as Led Zep, but only novelty acts like 21 Pilots fire up today's youngsters.
