The band was booed off stage. You dont know how much of a dick the singer is, it was ridiculous. He was tryting to tell awful jokes on stage, started smoking in between a song and recieved a fine, was bottled and booed. The music sounded quite good, but they need to lose the singer, he is a complete egoist.

They had just finished a song, and he went "Sometimes I wish I had a mirror on stage so I could look at myself whilst I sing" and he just got booed off and walked off stage.

And Lostprophets old stuff is just mental and amazing, you cant say stuff like Godzilla, Shinobi, We Still Kill The Old Way and To Hell We Ride is bad.

Lostprophets suck, but that wasn't my point. The point was I doubt Lostprophets fans would like this music.

I should have said "worst live band ever" because of his attitude. Y'know how like Axl Rose can ruin GnR?

Anyway the frontman just said "Sometimes I wish i had the mirror onstage so I could see how I look when I sing".

Attack! Attack!, the other support were a hell of a lot better.

also, i wouldn't call danza scenegrind. heavyheavylowlow is scene grind, psyopus is more like mathy metalcore, along the lines of ion dissonance maybe, but with less breakdowns. i'd say that ion dissonance bridges the gap between psyopus and tony danza.

Lostprophets are basically a pop rock band who are essentially quite serious about the music.

Yes I'm sure one person smoking in a large venue (which I'm assuming it was considering Lost Prophets were headlining) is going to be super harmful for you. The point is the dude likes to uphold an image of not giving a ****, and you're just being a baby about it.

One person smoking on-stage is not going to magically transform the place into a "smoky venue". No worries, your precious lungs will remain pure and undefiled!

I think Eric is awesome, though. When I hear that some Lostprophets fans booed him offstage for lighting a cigarette and joking about wanting a mirror, it's just funny. The mental image of an outraged teeny crowd is hilarious.

all i have to say is the lostprophets were good on their first and second releases. i love both records but now the band sucks, but they didn't always suck. as for this one, i clicked the thread and was appalled by the first page. never did listen to the band its about.


Edit: this band is terrible. id rather listen to brokencyde or pop country. yeah i went there.

First two albums were amazing, third album dropped the ball a bit but sitll had some really good songs, fourth album picked the ball back up.

"No, Don't Shoot", the video/song posted, was meh, ok. Overall though, I thought this band was just crap.

But, then after taking a peek at the rest of their stuff, it's actually not too bad.

i liked the band better when they didn't take themselves as seriously like on flamingo trigger. i feel like i should support them though because theyre from ohio like me

I love this band. The Flamingo Trigger, Introducing and Selt-titled are all brilliant albums.

Their last album was my favorite and I hate that hardcore shit. These dudes need to release another album soon, I'm itching for new material.
