David J. Criblez of the Island Ear spoke with Hoobastank frontman Doug Robb who admits he’s not sure what niche his band fits into in today’s music scene. Robb said, “I don’t know. It’s not like we were like, ‘We fit in right here!’ I don’t think we are doing anything groundbreaking. We’re not reinventing the wheel. I look at us as a rock band composed of four normal guys who like melody in their music.” Islandear.com has since removed the article.
