Anyone else have any bands they like but they can't stand their fans? Not including yourself of course.

For example, I think Avenged Sevenfold has some decent material, I like them, but their fans are beyond annoying. I can't stand how they practically worship them like they're the greatest thing to come to this earth and suck up to them that much.

Anyone else know what I'm talking about?

Slipknot. God, their fans make me hate being one.

I like My Little Pony. Come at me, bro.

I agree to both Slipknot and A7X. annoying kids these days lol Another i really cant stand is Black Veil Bride fans. There super extreme emo behavior annoys the crap outta me when BVB isn't even about emo topics.
AMP:
Rocktron chameleon 2000
Roland GP16
Audio Technica wireless
Peavey valveking
Clydesdale custom case
GUITAR:

Metal fans in general, really. Personality wise they're usually very nice and friendly but discussing music with them is like discussing the benefits of legal and consensual sex with Gary Glitter, they only see one point of view. I don't really tell people I'm into metal anymore as they assume you're a closed minded prick.

Also, the Robbie Williams fans who say things like "Take That are gay, Robbie was the only one who ever had talent," which is most of them in my experience, can go play in traffic.

Tegan and Sara.

EDIT: I cannot begin to fathom the extent to which their fanbase shit me

Metal fans in general. The whole "if it's not loud and distorted it sucks".
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash
#10
A large amount of the bands I like have shitty fans. Paramore, Radiohead, Lady GaGa, even things like Minor threat or something. It just comes with the territory.
#11
I don't even listen to BMTH to know they have annoying fans "AHH MYY GAAAAAAAWD, HE'S SO HOTTTT!!!!!!!!". That's my sister in a nutshell. The band is ok, I guess
#12
I will always love Coheed, but some of their fans make me embarrassed to call myself one. The band consumes their whole lives, and any light criticism of their material is viewed as heresy. It's beyond annoying.
#13
The fan I hate are the ones that know one song by a band and then never shut up about how much they love the band and how its the greatest thing their ears have ever heard

And I agree that (some) metal fans are dicks but not all metal fan are like that.

Marilyn Manson is huge one for me. I don't think I need to elaborate on that one...

Others (with some generic, delusional fan quotes included):

A7X ("Best band ever because they're drummer died.")
Green Day ("They're still punk! THEY'RE STILL PUNK!)
Slipknot ("Oh, this is the hardest, heaviest shit ever, man!")
The Beatles ("They've sold so many albums. You just have to like them!")
Bob Marley ("What? What's my favorite Bob Marley song? I don't really like his music. I'm wearing this shirt because I like weed.")

I like or respect all the above bands, but their fans can be quite annoying sometimes...

Every band with an 'attractive' singer or other members.

Read: Bring Me The Horizon or every other scene/core band that runs rampant these days.


Also, I don't think I'd find Justin Bieber half as annoying if everyone didn't like him so damn much.
#18
Agree with The Beatles, they made some great songs but they also made a lot of shite.

OT: Animal Collective.

I wouldn't find Justin Bieber annoying at all if people didn't hate him so much and make such a big deal of him. That's far more annoying then the 12 year old girls who love him.

Oh, I forgot all about the bands with attractive members. It annoys the living hell out of me because all I hear/read on anything about the certain band is "OH MII GAWD [insert sexy member here] Iz like, soooooooo0o0o0o0o sexayy. Me nd him iz gunna gt marryed one dai!!"

I like Skye Sweetnam, but there's this group of annoying people who tried to make a religion out of her. Crazy crazy people....... Just listen to the music and CALM DOWN about her

Also Megadeth. I've seen loads of people on Youtube saying crap like "evry band sux xept 4 megadethhhhhhh YYEEEAAAHHH" and suchlike.
Signatureless. And this doesn't count. Because I said so.

'-Core' fans. Like, all of them. From what I've seen, they come in two flavours.

1) Scene Kid: "RAWR i like cheese lol so randum XD brokencyde is so dark n edgy lol I LUV BFMV!!1"

Alternatively...

2) Kiddy Hipster: "Pfft, X band isn't metalcore, they're 'alternative-post-hardcore-punk-metal'. Y band? Oh, no, they're thrash-pop with emo-punk-core influences. "

Totally kills the genre for me.

+1 to Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, A7X, and BVB (even though I like those bands). I'm gonna have to add Escape the Fate to that list as well, I like their music but their fans drive me nuts- I challenge you to look up their videos on Youtube and not find a single comment from preteen scene girls worshiping them solely for their looks- then again, this applies to practically every "scene-core" -and I use that term loosely- band nowadays...

Slipknot fans, and lots of newer core fans.

Also I don't know if this is really exactly on topic but back in my more "heavy" days stuff like this always seemed to happen..

Random guy in public- "Heyyy man nice Cannibal Corpse shirt I love it heavy!!! ... So umm do you like Disturbed?"

Spot on

I've always wrestled with fans of southern rock bands (well, not literally "wrestled": they'd probably love that). Not all of them of course, but some -> the same people who make a HUGE f*cking fuzz about "bands that try to shove their political views down your throats" are the same people who go waving confederate flags at gigs and cheer at singers who hold speeches about "people trying to take their guns" (last year alone I read and/or saw Dave Mustaine, Jesse Hughes, Zakk Wylde and -who else- Ted Nugent tapping into that same 'ol "they're all against us" sentiment). How's that not politics?

If you're gonna be like that, at least be honest and say you're pissed off at the Dixie Chicks because you hate liberals or people who aren't patriotic (AKA anti-war) or something (which many people did, by the way), but there's always this group of people who pretend to be offended because they don't want politics when they're going to a gig, and in these cases it was often just not the case: they only get like that when they're confronted with people they don't agree with...

I like some core bands but I'm neither of those.

A Day to Remember... wait, no, they ruined it.

Kenny Chesney... Oh, he ruined it, too!

System of a Down. No, no, it's their fault I hate them as well...

Turns out I like bands because of them... not their fans.

Well no shit, Caption Obvious. The problem isn't the music, it's the fact that it's damn near impossible to find people who share your interest in certain bands that you can also get along with. I personally love Lady Gaga but considering most people who like Lady Gaga are like 12, it's hard to relate to the fans.

It's simple psychology. If you're surrounded by people with similar opinions, the strength of these opinions reaches the extreme. Put simply, in this context, if you're surrounded by fans of a certain band that you also like, you're going to like that band more.
