I wouldn't call that numetal, screamo, punk crap the standard of tone today. It doesn't take anything to get that tone. (gain all the way up, mid's scooped). I actually believe people have a higher standard for tone today than back then. Now they have 100's of pedals, back then they had a wah. Today they have a hugely, wider selection of amps than what was available then. back then it was, Fender, Marshall, Vox, Ampeg, hiwatt or Laney, that's about it. It just so happens that people back then had better tone because they had great vintage equipment, actually knew how to play the guitar, and actually knew how to work with their gear to get their sound.
I am Comfortably Numb... :D

Oh yeah...STICK IT TO THE MAN!
