Shinedown had some fun with their rider during a 2009 tour, where they paid tribute to the famous Foo Fighters rider by requesting assorted sugary cereals, but not the ones from "the Color Me Badd reunion show last night," and Van Halen's legendary brown M&Ms request by demanding the purple Skittles be removed from the fruity mix, because according to the band, "Purple is for terrorists."

Shinedown also requested a 12 pack of assorted local micro brew beers or "awesome imports." Apparently drummer Barry Kerch is a beer connoisseur and "gets angry without a good beer … this is not to be confused with an alcoholic, they go to meetings."
