Hey everyone.
So I've been in my band for about 2 years now, and we're just starting to regularly play venues and stuff. We're pretty much punkrock or just plain rock, and we're doing pretty well. In fact, we won a Battle of the Bands just a few days ago.
However, at this battle of the bands, a hardcore/screamo band thats older then us and more established then us played too. We beat them fair and square, and now we've been hearing that they've been nonstop talking **** about us and out music.
I understand that they only like hardcore stuff, but I really don't think thats any reason to down on our music just because its a different genre.
We've never badmouthed them, since we're trying to make a strong connection with all of the local bands we know.
Now their fans are constantly spreading stuff about us sucking and whatnot, and our fans are talking back sometimes to a violent extent.
Long story short, there's several kids who want to fight us for things we never even said.
So my question is...
What the hell? is this normal?
Should we stop trying to be the nice guys and join the "rivalry" Their trying to start?
Its mostly entertaining to read the hate mail but it gets old.
Thanks! Olly B.

it's always gonna happen. the same thing is happening with me and my band but it's only like 3 people. they say they're trying to "be on top"
it's pretty stupid

Seriosly? Depending on who the guys are that want to beat you up, if this was my situation, i would get a couple of the bands i know just to take sides with me. that or kick their asses! good luck! keep us up to date with this!

So they have myspace or something? Send them a message about it on there, if not catch them at one of there gigs.

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

They hate you because you're not a real punk band obviously...
Because any real punk band would've kicked their ass already...

As a Metalhead,I kick every single ****ing pointed headed punks ass I see,whether it be at the mall (where they seem to infest) or at a show (why the **** do they always have hardcore/metal shows together anyways?)

You Know why?

Take the high road, they're only making themselves look bad by spreading it, and you'll only seem to prove what they're saying if you retaliate.


I'm sorry, but the last time I saw bands having unlikeable turds in them, they became multi-millionaires (Metallica/Megadeth, Guns n' Roses, Yngwie Malmsteen)

Who's the unlikeable turd in Megadeth and why are Metallica and Megadeth apparently the same band?

Don't say Dave Mustaine.

haha wow thats a lot of responses.
Well dude im not saying we play straight punk its just like pop.punk.rock idk
theres quite a crowd at my school who downs on any genre that isnt screamo
its very immature.
and i didnt mean it took us two years to start gigging
We've had a few lineup changes and such
And we're jsut now REGULARLY gigging.
Im just trying to decide if we should be mature about it or just have the damn fight. haha

I don't see the problem with Dave, he seems like a cool guy to me. Don't bring in his Metallica days.

This is just plain childish.
You beat them at music, you are better than them in the first place.
