ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 7D RIGHT HERE..... http://eastwest.ilgpress.com/sevendust/media/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.94.197.44 (talk) 17:29, 13 May 2008 (UTC)


I'm looking for an article on actual sevendust. i've heard of this band, but i'm more interested in finding something to help me with my garden. How come there's no information about the pesticide here?

Sevin dust and Sevin liquid are the pesticides. "Sevendust" was an adaption of this word to use a band name. --Ironcladben 17:01, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I believe this band origanlly formed in 92 under the name rumblefish...in fact, they have a song named rumblefish...I know someone who played with the band when they were still local...

  • I don't believe that it is terribly accurate to say that Morgan's screaming on the album is just a 'rumor'. It is pretty obvious by watching the videos and the DVD's that he IS the screamer.
  • I've seen them live, and I can attest that at least in that situation, Morgan does do the screaming. --Greyduk 23:07, 7 July 2007 (UTC)


  • I updated the singles :D -Xanarki

NOTE: UGLY IS NOW AT #12, LOOK AT BILLBOARD.COM!!!

    • Everything I've heard about Sevendust implies they were originally called "Crawlspace". DMighton 14:45, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
    • That is correct. I have a cassette tape of the Crawlspace release somewhere and remember seeing them live here in Atlanta. Also, there was another founding member not listed: Lee Banks was an original guitarist.

Rumblefish vs. Assdrop[edit]

I've never heard any clarification on this. Why did they change the name of the song from Rumblefish to Assdrop? I never even heard of this until I bought the Greatest Hits package.

dildo It was originally titled "Assdrop" and they changed it to "Rumble Fish" but I don't know why.

Stillrain...?[edit]

Anyone know the history with a couple of the guys and the band Stillrain? Might have just been Clint, I know he reformed with those guys to create Dark New Day. This could be important to the article.

DELETION?[edit]

If someone finds the articles used before 4/29/07, will the page not be deleted? I might try to find it, but if it's just going to be deleted it's no use in trying. Please tell me before it's too late! Indie -0 14:51, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Separate Articles?[edit]

I haven't seen any discussion on this, so I'll ask. Why is the Sevendust Discography page separate from their main article?--Greyduk 23:07, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Discography not on page[edit]

There's no discography on this page! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.16.92.47 (talk) 15:32, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Era[edit]

Why does every album titled section contain "Era" after the years? 2007 is not an "Era". —Preceding unsigned comment added by JeffHCross (talkcontribs) 23:29, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

I knew I forgot something. JeffHCross (talk) 23:42, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Genre[edit]

I'll dispute the "heavy metal" and (to a lesser degree" the "alternative metal" tags here. Sevendust really aren't metal at all. Which isn't a put down, I like them. Just a statement. So, can anyone give a reliable source for these tags, as allmusic isn't reliable on heavy metal genres (see reliable source noticeboard for that). Cheers Prophaniti (talk) 17:09, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Added a reference from MTV.com categorizing them as heavy metal. Akerans (talk) 18:41, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Financial troubles[edit]

Does anyone else find the whole "Financial troubles" section a bit too one-sided and overly detailed?

-Hsxeric (talk) 20:02, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

I don't think it's overly detailed, but appears to be copied word for word from Revolver Magazine. If anything, should be rewritten. Will rewrite, it's on my to do list. What do you mean by one-sided? Akerans (talk) 18:47, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

musicmight.com[edit]

"Musicmight is a Rock database established online by Garry Sharpe-Young in 2001. Want to add information to this database? Just register - it's simple!"

Considering they are a site similar to wikipedia.org, removed this reference. They are not a reliable source since they may contain original research. Akerans (talk) 19:22, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Nu metal[edit]

There has been an editor who has championed taking away the application of the term nu metal to this band. The subtraction of the nu metal genre has been repeatedly reverted by multiple editors. The person has not given a reason on any talk page or otherwise as to why he or she is deleting this description of the band. I had told this person that he or she can bring it up on a talk page to discuss, but the person has not done that yet. However, (s)he had some recent invisible messages which involved stating to discuss the issue on a talk page. Therefore, I decided that I would take the initiative to bring it up on here. Genre feuding and genre warrioring are activities that I loathe, and I would like there to be some sort of end to this pending predicament. Also, I would like an explanation from the anonymous editor as to why (s)he wants the genre of nu metal to be removed from here and why there is other genre changing activity lacking explanation on other pages. Backtable Speak to meconcerning my deeds. 04:56, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Agreed, wouldn't mind some sort of explanation for the constant removal as well as the addition of invisible notes, asking others to discuss in the talk page first, without (s)he doing it themselves first. I went ahead and added a source for nu metal within that articles body (using sources in the infobox is usually discouraged), so any further removal if it will have to be justified here. HrZ (talk) 11:32, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Source[edit]

here' a pretty handy source i found [1] it elaborates by saying that sevendust are mainly an alternative metal band, but it also says they've had run ins with other labels like nu metal and industrial metal I call the big one bitey 12:28, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

infobox image[edit]

There are two images as of today

Sevendust 2010.jpg
Sevendust.jpg

In the first image, which was in the infobox until a few hours ago an editor changed it without explanation, you can see the lead vocalist, two guitarists, a bass player and a drummer. They are clear, in focus, but guitarist standing to the right of the vocalist is somewhat obscured by the vocalist, but otherwise everyone is seen clearly. It is compact and effective. In the second image you see a vocalist, both guitarists a bass player with his right shoulder to the camera, and a drummer. No faces can be seen clearly. They are spread out. The grainy nature of the image makes it difficult to see anything. There are other subjects in the image (possibly a roadie and a security person) who are at the same scale as the members. The lighting is poor and no one can be seen clearly. They are spread-out and it is far from effective. The first image is the better one. Walter Görlitz (talk) 20:16, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
