MMRBQ is on September 16 at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion and there are some songs we want to hear from Shinedown.

Over the last two decades, Shinedown have cemented their status as one of the most vital powerhouses in modern rock. The band has achieved astronomical success while fully embodying a creativity that defies expectation and transcends boundaries.

Their new album Planet Zero soars. It places Shinedown in the pantheon of artists capable of moving the culture forward, showing fierce commitment to constant evolution. The album debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart and the Official UK Albums Chart, and at #1 on six other Billboard charts including Top Album Sales, Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative Albums Charts.

It is high–concept and hard–hitting. That is why we want to hear plenty of Planet Zero tracks. It takes a look at a strange and terrifying moment in history. Also, it examines its implications for the future of humankind. This all culminates in a dystopian framework. The issue at hand? The toxic division among those of differing opinions and ideologies and cancel culture.

It all sounds so powerful. We’d love it if they brought it to the MMRBQ stage.

Here are 7 songs we want to hear from Shinedown at MMRBQ:

  • "Dead Don't Die"

    “Dead Don’t Die” is an anthem of resilience. The track serves as a reminder that the human spirit can and will preserve, and that what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.

  • "Planet Zero"

    This is an examination of cancel culture and the dangerous dehumanizing consequences if we continue down the divisive path we are on. Will definitely hit harder in person.

  • "Dysfunctional You"

    This song has a great message, as most Shinedown songs do. It’s a message to you that you should just be yourself! We’d love to hear this at MMRBQ.

  • "A Symptom Of Being Human"

    A Symptom of Being Human” is a song that showcases Shinedown’s vulnerability and ability to connect us all through our common ground. It will definitely sound amazing on the big stage.

  • "Daylight"

    “Daylight” is slower and is a very uplifting tune. Phone flashlights/lighters will be waving in the air if they play this stellar song. It’s such a powerful song.


    “Attention Attention is a warning. It’s like your alter ego jumps into the room all of a sudden, and starts messing you with you and pushing you around a little bit. It’s a really good song that showcases Brent Smith’s voacls.

  • "Second Chance"

    We, of course, want to hear a throwback, too. This is a classic Shinedown hit. We love it so much and hope to hear it take our main stage at MMRBQ.
