Not only do they sound like shit, they looks look even worse.
Edit: I've noticed that core bands don't look "metal" at all. I mean, look at the old school metal bands, even some of the newer ones (Pantera, Metallica, Death, Slayer, Slipknot, etc) look like they belong in the genre they are playing. I'm not saying you have to look the part to sound good, just some bands look how you expect them. These guys just look like seven more loser who couldn't decide if they wanted to be emo or gay.

5 second research claims they have a singer, a screamer, two guitarists, a bassist, a keyboardist, and a drummer. Slipknot's line up is still the most retarded.

Why would you post Converge in a discussion about Woe Is Me and Foxy Whatever (I don't remember the second word, it begins with an 's' though). And I still don't like Converge, he sounds like his nuts are on fire. I will say that Converge is for sure better than those two bands, at least Converge sounds like it makes sense (actually, I haven't listened to Woe Is Me yet, which is why I asked if they're worse than Foxy Shizzzam).

foodit: Converge isn't a bad band and I can see how people are influenced by them, but that still doesn't mean I have to like them. Just to clarify my words.

for what I've heard, I think they're more annoying than emotive. To define my terminology, emotive as in 'making me feel emotion' and emotional as in 'with great emotion'. Can't deny that they're emotional, but I don't get that feeling you describe from Converge.

Sure, you can reBUTT all day long. Opinions cannot be wrong, that is the glory of them. My point is that when you reduce with Occam's razor you are left with the fact that the argument is on subjectivity (or simulated objectivity due to defining subjectivity to emulate objectivity). Arguments on subjectivity are silly. Fun, but silly. Everybody is correct in subjectivity, no matter how unsound they seem (because soundness is relative).

If I am making an opinion about objectivity then yes, I can be wrong. If I say, "it is my opinion that in base-10 mathematics, 2.0 plus 2.0 is 5.0," then I am completely wrong. This isn't objectivity, it is subjectivity.

BLAH BLAH BLAH. This needs to be reduced to Godwin's Law already.

technicolour
09-05-2010, 04:30 PM
it depends what your arguments are based on.

For example: if you were to say: sgt. peppers is better because it sold more albums. Then you'd have to argue why album sales, and popularity make an artist better.

lordofthefood1
09-05-2010, 04:55 PM
Yeah, but that is the illusion of objectivity that gets reduced with Occam's razor.

Selling more albums is objective (semantics aside), but you still are subectively saying that album sales are what makes something better. We could argue why something is better than something else and it could be fun, but I think it is useless in the long run. It boils down to both 'neither of us are correct' and 'we're both correct in our own minds'.

blah blah blah blah blah.

I know I've said that Sgt. Peppers and ITAOTS are the greatest albums of all time, but I don't expect everybody else to agree, nor do I think there is a point in trying to convince everybody of it.

And I know I've just been arguing with somebody why Daisy is Brand New's worst album, but that is for the purpose of being silly and trying to get him to understand my words instead of putting words in my mouth (the point isn't Daisy at all, the point is that the guy isn't reading my words correctly). So far you haven't posted the words yet, so I haven't been able to put any in your mouth and therefore have you tell me why I shouldn't put words in your mouth.

RentACar's been around for a while I believe
Pretty sure he appeared out of nowhere a while back after searching his own username and dragged up a quote from months ago, and we all laughed at him and abused him. Think that was him anyway.

Either way, I don't recognise him except for from that time, but I've only been here like 6 months max, so...

I actually liked it (mostly because of the monologue before the last chorus.) It made me lol.

The more I listen to WIM's album, the more I keep drawing comparisons to sceney weenie bands everybody made fun of but then everyone grew to like as the years went by...I predict that this will happen to this band. I'm calling it.

Also, the drummer was in Of Machines, and they were pretty sweet. Makes me realize how WIM's drums are so ridiculous.

Not on UG. Just because it doesn't happen on UG doesn't mean it doesn't happen everywhere else.

People were mainly bashing Four Year Strong a few years back for the same reasons as A Day To Remember, because they were mixing pop-punk with hardcore. Although ADTR was far more on the -core side.

Pop punk is exactly what it sounds like it is. Punk rock that appeals to a mass amount of people and/or is catchy. Not much sense to try and make out of it. I don't think that's a label that can really be proven to be anything else.
