I saw the thread for the non-generic ones, so I thought, why not start a thread for the SUPER generic ones?

It seems to me that lately, everyone's doing the whole Asking Alexandria, Attack Attack!, or Abandon All Ships thing with the generic metalcore riffs, overused synths, dissonant chord breakdowns, and catchy clean singing for all the choruses. If you guys know any other bands that sound exactly like that, share them here!

I'll start it off first with a local band from my hometown, The Light Iris.

The best source for this is the Non-Generic Metalcore thread.

This.

Why would anyone listen to something they call generic?


I think that he who asked the question is, like me, interested in learning of even more bands to make fun of.

How was Confucius death metal?
You've clearly never read any Confuscius.

As I wait on the edge of the earth,
I can see the walls being torn down again
Only to be rebuilt in another name,
On a different day

You probably like a ton of generic music.

Was there a question asked? I do not see a question, excluding the first sentence, wish I figured was rhetorical... I guess not...

We don't start a thread for the "SUPER generic" metalcore bands because there is no depth, complexity, or emotion to this type of music to allow us to analyze, debate, or even make conversation about. Hope that answered your question.

If you ask a retarded question, expect retarded responses. Why make this thread?

I think everyone listens to a few generic bands. Maybe not metalcore bands.

Even Nash.

I like a lot of terrible music, but I'm not sure if any of it is something I would label "generic."

That's not me trying to prove my superiority, I just honestly can't think of anything that I regularly listen to that I'd call "generic."

Maybe Open Hand? They're nothing special.

Here are a few really generic (and ****ing terrible) bands

Arsonists Get All The Girls
We All Have Day Jobs
We Butter The Bread With Butter
Super Happy Story Time Land

I refuse to call them Metalcore though.
I'm an asshole.

Yo bro there's already threads for all those bands ya listed in this forum. But wherever you go, you're gonna have to fight kids who know metalcore. Just give up discussing them now.

Also, why would we want to share such crappy bands, here's a hardcore band from my hometown that I like:

Pfft, their breakdowns are so lame though! And their synth player doesn't even straighten his hair, LOL.

Also fuck off Marsden, I don't even care. You look like an art teacher from the early 90s.
My name is Danny. Call me that.
#25
Also, you know what? You'd have a hard time straightening your hair too if you were going through chemo. Insensitive dick.

Last time I checked on them they were literally incapable of playing their songs live, and then I made it a habit to not check up on them haha.

I still love their first two albums. No shame. Then they started "maturing" which is stupid because AGATG is supposed to be a joke band.
Call me Andrew!
