what are your thoughts on bands like fall out boy, panic! and the disco, my chemical romance, the used, blink 182 and green day?


my thoughts on this band are, they suck. they have almost no talent. but, someone out there is having a better day everyday because they listen to one of these bands. why do we have to rag on these bands everyday?

just because they aren't as talented as some of the masters of music, we should not rag on them.

you know the feeling when you hear a song by your favorite band and your just happier for the next few minutes or so because you love that song so much?

that's what all of those stupid kids feel when they listen to these bands, so please don't rag on them anymore, because they're doing the same thing for others as the real talented bands do for you.

I don't care for fall out boy, or panic.

Some of MCRs newer stuff is not totally technically lacking. I like MCR, The Black Parade is great, I agree that their older stuff is kinda meh.

Green Day and Blink-182: the guitar parts are easy as piss, but I still like them.
#7
Hmm, I see you listed a listly list of clearly no-talented bands.
Tell me, how many hit singles have you had?
#8
Oh wow. Another kid with an opinion on how we should be.

Nah, everyone has their rights to insult people. It's freedom of Speech. You can't change that.

EDIT: Whitehelijumper makes a good point. They also always insult the talented bands.

I rag on those people because they seem to always rag on the good stuff (like Rush). Anyone who rags on Rush automatically pisses me off.

the music doesnt need to be super technical to get its point across...unless the lyrics are ****e

it's true, they do make ppl have a better day. It happens to me. I remember how everyone on forums, and youtube comments were all like yo fallout boy is soo gay, they suck bla bla bla, and i was like ya they do, but sometimes when i was down, i listened to some of their songs and it made me feel better. respek to all da bands out dere
#12
I have to agree with TS. Even though i personally don't like those bands.... But Dance Dance is always fun once in a while.
You may have a 10 x 10 stack of marshalls and i may only have one, but mine goes to 11.... Beat that
#13
Green Day has no talent?

Idiocity. They wouldn't write songs anywhere near as well as they do if they were untalented.

don't think i'm saying nobody should listen to these bands or anything, i used to listen to them as well.

the point i'm trying to make is that we should rag on NO bands because music is here for everyone to enjoy and the point is to make people happy. if someone has a better day because of some ****ty band then i'm happy. i don't like the bands and i think they are untalented, but they help people out, and for that i respect them a lot.

music is a beautiful thing people.

Meh...You just sound condescending to fans of that kind of music. What you're doing is patronizing them.
Even if they are crappy bands (with the exception of Green Day and Blink, who are pretty good), they are good to someone else, and they don't need you telling them it's OK for them to listen to them.

You're vaguely educated opinion is F*CKED by the fact that you keep calling them ****ty.

Chilli Peppers = crap
The Beatles = boring
The Who = the who? Oh yeah, that BORING band, yawn

The reason I hate on these bands is that they are the death of the music industry. Over commercialised under-though bull ****.

There is a specific talent needed to make a pop-rock song. Its not like these bands are popular for no reason.

No, there is a specific image and a good marketing strategy needed.

You get used to it after a while. Actually, I've learned to laugh at it.

"Who's that chick screeching?"
"What's with the guitarist's whacked-out sense of humor?"
"Jeeze, why isn't Neil Peart more grateful of his fans?"

And don't call me a traitor, Rush was my first love.

Right, even if the people that listen to these bands are "stupid".

Sounds a bit hypocritical, to put it nicely.

dude, i think at least those emo dudes can play their instruments, even if their riffs are made of 3 chords in different orders, and their solos dont show any theory (well, excep for MCR, even if i hate em, i read their guitarrits interview to see what the dude had to say, and he knows theory very well) we must worry for disney, who sell idiotic music that even 16 year old dudes buy

btw im sixteen and i hate that

Psssh...When you can write a song as good as Longview, come back and talk. Green Day were big on the underground in Cali before they ever got famous. Not saying all those bands were, but you can't just cite good marketing as the cause of their success.

yeah, i was high earlier. i used to like blink 182, greenday and fall out boy a lot. they do not suck. i agree that you do need some talent to create a song, and that song has been recognized by thousands of fans.

i hate people that always use that as there argument...bands don't have to be technically talented to write a hit single...there are thousands of guitarists out there who are thousands of times better than billie joe armstrong who don't have hit singles...just becuase he's on the radio doesn't make him or his band any good

that said, this is an awful thread...

Well spoken for a guy that's had only 40 minutes to sober up. And considering that marijuana has a half-life of 2 hours... seems fishy.

I love MCR with a passion. They are pretty talented for a mainstream band and they have amazing lyrics. Another thing I like about them is that all their albums are concept albums. I like the fact that they can incorporate such awesome story lines into their music.

Also, just because a band isn't so technically advanced doesn't mean they are crap. It's just a matter of taste and opinion, and calling people stupid because of what bands we like just makes you sound ignorant.

THOSE BANDS ARE NOT TALENTLESS. if you don't like them, just say so. but seriously, these bands have made landmarks in their genres. emo music would not have started without MCR. punk would not be alive without Blink and Green Day.

so yes, we shouldn't rag on them. but to say they are talentless is not true.

mcr did not start the emo movement, and punk would be just fine without the other two. there are a lot more bands out there.

MCR didn't start emo. In fact, they aren't even emo. Can't really decide on their genre. And punk could have been fine without Green Day and Blink, they just added to the awesomeness.
