People on UG that are just stuck in the world of metal. Im not sure if you guys are aware, but theres other genres of music out there. I'm especially sick of hearing "fall out boy and green day suck, there just made up of 3 power chords"

the power chords theory is getting on my fucking nerves. Yes, maybe those bands do play with just power chords, but there obviously better than you. I'm not sticking up for those bands, but im just saying, all those people who bash them, more than likely have never even listened to them. And its all coming from those same kids with the metallica and ozzy osbourne avatars .

anyway, anyone else annoyed by it?

Yes.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

I've heard other genres and I don't care for most of them. I don't see what the problem is.

I agree that some people being too stuck with one genre but I do hate Fall Out Boy and Green Day. I have no problem with the music ability of these bands I just think they sound really lame.

I'd rather not give a shit and just listen to Beck. Who cares what everyone else is listening to, or to what some unknowledgable arrogant prick thinks.

By making this thread and alleged 'rant', you've pretty much sunk down to the same level as the people your against.

I don't know about anyone else. But, I started out listening to them. So, how could I not know what they sound like if that's I first started to listen to?

Thanks for your opinion Evan. But, people have opinions just like yours. Can't really change that. So, don't worry about it. Let people think what they want, if your god..you could kill them or something..but your not. So, your gonna have to deal with it like all of us mortals.
#25
I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU! Give mcr, green day, and those bands a chance because they rock.

You see the problem is metalheads bash mainstream music on purpose. Most bands (except for rap and pop) are mainstream BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD MUSIC!

So don't say bands suck just because they are mainstream... unless it is pop or rap... then it sucks

/rant.


most of the people you're talking about are 14-year old noobs who just heard of Metallica a month ago...the vast majority of metal fans on UG, at least the ones I've come across in the metal forum, are pretty open-minded when it comes to music. I mean, we have classical and jazz fans all over the place in the metal forum...

But DON'T use the "obviously better than you" argument. Fame and success don't equal skill.

Dude chill out. People are allowed to express their opinions just as you are doing now...and if you're sick of hearing about how green day and fallout boy suck, then don't go into threads called "Fallout boy sux".

I got two options for the thread starter

1.) look for my thread on "band Bashing" and rant there (read the rules first please!)
or
2.) STFU! You don't know if the guys who criticize the Green-Day and Fall Out Fags can or can not play guitar better than theose Shiiiety bands. I know I can, and Im not that good!

I'm a little sick of random bashing of the fore mentioned bands. I liked Green days earlier work.. i don't care for Fall out boy.. but there are much worse and annoying bands of their genre

i dont. people randomly say it at the most uncalled for times.
#34
Actually I'm willing to bet 90 percent of the people on this site are better musicians than the ones in falloutboy and greenday. Fame has nothing to do with talent, unfortunately. Its the reason many great jazz musicians have no money and play in club bands for a living.
#35
Get over it and move on? The elitists who bash other bands instead of saying politely, "I dislike *name of band**," most of the time don't know what they're talking about anways.

People can say and do as they please,
although old green day is decent.

It's not black flags or social distortion, or even the rammones, talk about 3 power chords....
I don't even shred

that was a good point.

It depends what you class as 'metal'

Slayer, Cannibal Corpse etc are called metal and they suck.

However, Rage, Audioslave and Led Zep are called metal and they rock.

So ummmm.... Please differentiate...
