can anyone explain to me, why certain fans go way to far. It seems like a few select bands, have insane obsessive fans, who are the most loyal in the world. While other bands just make music and have casual fans.

Bands like Rush, Grateful Dead, Mr. Bungle, skinny puppy, Insane Clown Posse, Nine inch nails.

i just dont get it.

anyone take a whack at it for me?

All bands have die hard fans, whom are crazy and obsessive and silly.
They just kinda get shoved into the corner by all the casual fans when a band gets famous. Whereas if there's no casual fans its the Crazy's time to shine.

also gn'r, ac/dc, and usually for the somewhat older fans: springsteen.
weird how that works, i guess it's usually what people are first introduced to (esp. w/ ac/dc)


My mind is going. I can feel it.

All bands have those type of fans, it's just that certain bands are more popular and/or trendy. ICP aren't necessarily "famous," but they're popular, and a bit of a trend if you ask me.

I'm a HUGE fan of black metal. I burn churches and eat raw goat heads for breakfast. ololol

No but seriously, I am a huge black metal fan.

All I know is that Rush fans and Dead fans might be extremely loyal but they should definately not be put in the same boat as ICP fans.

kind of like cult movies that spawn a whole scene of music and fashion.

i.e. rocky horror, clockwork orange, etc.

I think you forgot Gwar, I don't think they've ever had a casual fan.
