While the US crowd was surely jealous that Tool and Soulfly only performed on the two UK dates, Ozzfest 2001 still boasted a hell of a line up. Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Black Label Society, and Taproot made their return to share the stage with newcomers like Mudvayne, Drowning Pool, and Marilyn Manson.
A handful of bands on the tour were short lived (Pressure 4-5, No One, and Systematic, to name a few) but were still fortunate enough to hear from the majority of these artists. Here are three from the second stage you may have forgotten about that are still out there rocking.
Formed in 1996, The Union Underground released one studio album, An Education In Rebellion, before disbanding in 2002 to focus on other projects. Bassist John Moyer went on to play with Disturbed; Bryan Scott fronted Cult To Follow and Into The Fire. For over a decade, it seemed like the band was finished. In 2016, Scott announced that a new lineup and new music were coming soon. They are currently recording a new EP and have been touring throughout the summer.
The first and only band signed under Marilyn Mansons Posthuman record label, Godheads goth/metal/industrial mix made them a perfect addition to this diverse Ozzfest. With ten albums under theirbelt, Godheadwas able to bolster a strong underground and mainstream following. Their last release was 2014sThe Shadow Realigned, a remix of 2006sThe Shadow Line). Vocalist Jason Miller, however, has kept himself busy as a solo artist playing country music thats Though Godhead is not currently active, they havent worn out their welcome and could certainly make a comeback if Miller finds the time.
Hailing from South Florida,Nonpointhas been churning out new music every few years since 1997. Songs like What A Day, Bullet With A Name, and their cover of In The Air Tonight continue to make the radio rounds.Nonpointmay not be as prominent as they were back in the early 2000s, but their consistency to deliver enjoyable music makes them a great supporting act for many of todays groups.
Looking at the lineup today, it seems a little out of place to see Papa Roach and Linkin Park sharing the stage with Mudvayne and Slipknot, but Crazy Town is by far the most surprising band on the list. While Butterfly did enjoy a comparable amount of radio play around the world similar to Last Resort and In The End, its just hard to imagine that the same crowd moshing to Dig and Down with the Sickness would be singing youre my butterfly, sugar baby. Still, thats the beauty of Ozzfest, right?
And to answer your burning question, yes, Crazy Town is still touring.
Ozzfest 2001 included another fantastic lineup full of bands that are still touring today. Though we will probably never get Papa RoachandCrazy Townon the same tour as American Head ChargeandHatebreedagain, this incarnation of the festival offered a mix of music that would be replicated the following year. Once again, Ozzfest 2001 brought metal fans across the US a show that could not be missed.
