Over the next few years, [[FaceOfTheBand Scott Stapp]] let fame go to his head and got loopier and loopier in terms of antics. They split not long after "Weathered," their last album for 8 years.

* EpicFail: [[http://lostmedia.wikia.com/wiki/Creed's_Infamous_2002_AllState_Stadium_Chicago_Performance_(Lost_Footage) The last concert]] for their world tour celebrating ''Weathered'' was so bad that the fanbase sued the band ''and won'', costing them millions of dollars and contributing to their break up the falling year. It was a result of Scott, having recovered from a throat infection, ignoring the labels on his antibiotics and downing a bottle of whiskey right before the performance. As a result, he mumbled through five songs, got tired and literally tried to ''take a nap'' onstage during the middle of the concert, even laying down. It was so bad that officials put a stop to the concert immediately.

* {{Yarling}}: Scott Stapp's method of singing, and consequently, one of the [[NotChristianRock many]], [[WalkingShirtlessScene many]] reasons people love to hate the band.

* TheAlcoholic: Stapp, to a notable degree.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: Stapp, to such a degree that the rest of the band now largely focuses on Music/AlterBridge, while he's, well, [[http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/11/27/creed-singer-scott-stapp-s-fall-from-grace-from-40-million-albums-sold-to-living-in-a-holiday-inn.html doing his own thing.]]

* CreatorBreakdown: Happened to Scott Stapp...repeatedly. At one point, the band was ''sued'' by concertgoers as Stapp was reportedly "so intoxicated/medicated that he was unable to sing the lyrics to a single Creed song." Eventually led to the souring of his relationship with the rest of the band, and Creed's (temporary) breakup in 2004. He may or may not have gotten better, depending on who you ask.

* NoIndoorVoice: Scott Stapp has a habit of bellowing rather loudly on even some of the softer songs. It's mostly {{Yarling}} but it occasionally approaches CarefulWithThatAxe levels of angst.

They reunited in 2009 and, surprisingly enough, still [[NoseYodeling sounded]] pretty [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZejtZI6JzY good]]. They did a short tour followed by a brand, spankin' new album that some music critics said heralded the end times.

* FollowTheLeader: Critics often accuse them of ripping off Music/PearlJam, especially Eddie Vedder's [[NoseYodeling style of singing]].
