Mudvayne and Hellyeah frontman Chad Gray is making no secret of his frustrations with the state of live performances in the music industry. In a candid interview with The Underground, Gray expressed his disdain for bands who rely heavily on backing tracks during their concerts, emphasizing the importance of musical authenticity and hard work.

Gray did not mince his words, stating: “Even more than bands that sound like other bands, what I like the most are bands that don’t play their music… I’m sick of this bullshit”. He highlighted the prevalence of bands who use backing tracks as a crutch, comparing them to playback disasters of the past.

Drawing on his own experience and dedication to musical integrity, Gray emphasized the value of honest expression through music. He emphasized the role of authentic vulnerability and connection in creating meaningful art, lamenting the current tendency to prioritize success over authenticity.
