Did you ever have any regrets or second thoughts about naming the band, Hatebreed? Always wondered if the name ever caused negative reactions by people or restricted you guys from any business opportunites at all?
I don't regret it but yes it hinders the band. We think WWE, UFC, and some big movie & TV opportunities have escaped us because certain people are weary of anything having anything to do with the word "hate" but keep in mind we are a grammy nominated band and have sold over a million records so I doubt that would have been possible if people didn't dig the name/logo/sound/message etc. We'll always use the negative for the positive so we'll keep on keeping on.
