Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

Too Aggressive huh? Well they were probably just trying to make sure everyone in the talent show was talented When bands are over-the-top aggressive it's 99% of the time because they don't have any real talent.

That said, I have no idea how any screamo band made it into the show...
#11
I had to change my lyrics also for talent show, but dude no worries why do they consider your band aggressive?

You guys could rework you're music and cover some softer more crowd pleasing music.
#13
obviously you don't want to play in the talent show anyway based on how you've described it. find another way to show people your band's talent

Suggest a battle of the bands. That's what we did at our school.

Eh, talent shows arent cool. Honestly. Go to a public place and rock out, and get some friends there, if you wait long enough some people might come.
#16
I hope you do, so that you are immediately reprimanded after a quick internet search by the school administrators.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

ya well at my school we cant use electric guitars because there to heavy apparently :S, and its acoustic guitars only in talent shows... im like ok wtf thats not true

You don't like religion forced on you, now don't force your music on others.
if your not happy with it. after the talent show set up a gig in the same gym and play and see how many people will show up.

Bring in some sorta rights and freedom acts and proclamations and fight them useing legal facts. I wouldn't give up on something you want to do, just debate and fight it. Fight for your right to rock. but fight fair, not whinning and complaining, come up with logical reasons and what not. Good luck.

Haha, this sounds familiar.

They censored one band from playing "Screaming at a Wall" by Minor Threat, and I'm not sure what they disallowed you to perform.

But then again, I know I wouldnt want to hear the utter garbage that is a 1:30 second long yellfest.
#27
i did a whitechapel vocal cover at my talent show, there was only like 8 kids head banging with me everyone else was like
but that was a bit back in grade 9 lol.
#29
It's not our own music, we were going to play Motorhead or a Metallica tune that isn't over played.
#30
IS it because of the lyrics? My band had to play Killing in the Name with "Stuff you I won't do what you tell me" in a show at school.

What, are you only able to play one genre of music?
If you really want to play tell her ye'll do an acoustic number.

Maybe 'too aggresive' was the teacher's nice way of telling you that your band aren't that good.

Biggest fail ever. WTF? Why didn't you just stay true to the songs message?


Because I'm sure some people don't "**** you" screamed at them for a minute.

Meh. Talent shows suck anyway. See if you can find some actual shows for your band in your area, they're way more fun.

I was at a talent show last night

because my best friend was playing in it, and my other friends were going to be there.
