* TokenMinority: While he is not the only one, Lajon is one of the few black rock and metal vocalists active right now. He is, however, arguably the most well-known, along with possibly Byron Davis of God Forbid, Howard Jones of Devil You Know (also formerly of Music/KillswitchEngage), Derrick Green of Music/{{Sepultura}}, [[Music/BodyCount Ice-T]] of Body Count, Adam Warren of Oceano, and [[Music/{{Skindred}} Benji Webbe]] of Skindred[[note]]Terrance Hobbs and Mike Smith of Music/{{Suffocation}} are also among the most well-known black musicians in metal despite neither of them being a vocalist[[/note]].

* LongRunner: A band that debuts in the midst of the rock era we'd all like to forget as "nu-metal" should, by all conventional wisdom, have disappeared by now. Wrong. 2014 marked Sevendust's 17th (17th!) year since their debut album, with only one lineup change (Lowery to Sonny Mayo and now back to Lowery), and ten albums to their credit as of April 2014. Most of their contemporaries have been lucky to release four or five albums before disbanding or fading into obscurity. As the most prominent rock band since Living Colour to have an African-American singer, Sevendust does not get anywhere near the respect or mainstream recognition that it should.
