I was thinking about this and thought I'd ask UG.


See bands like MCR, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco etc...they all get loads of hate. But before they were "big" (well in MCR and FOB's case anyway) they didn't get have as much **** as they do now.


And I'll admit, I like MCR, I like (old, pre-This Ain't A Scene) Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco (don't worry, I listen to other stuff like Opeth, Converge etc too), but before they were "big" ie Pre-Black Parade, Pre-Dance, Dance.

And after they got big, they got hordes of fans. Irritating, scene fans looking for the new cool thing.


So do you think that bands become more hated just because they get more irritating fans, or have these bands always just been hated and now they're in the limelight they're a bigger disscusion point.


Please, discuss.

EDIT: Okay just to show I'm not just using emo kids as an example, Trivium, BMTH (who I personally hate) and other metalcore/deathcore bands also get the same deal.

Sometimes. But most of the time bands seemto change to ATTRACT these fans...

Yeah, particularly when their fans are mostly "goth"/emo/punky teenage girls.

The odour of fish at an MCR show must be overwhelming.

It's unfortunate, but very true.

I know what you mean. Lots of fans put me off certain bands. I'm a huge Trivium fan, but there are hoardes of pathetic sceney fans who parade about "Triviums iz teh rulez" and it really annoys me, when I associate with them.

But in the case of those bands you mentioned, most of their music is ****.

You're right. It has nothing to do with the actual music, but the people who listen to the music.
#17
this shouldn't even be a question, its obvious. i dont kno why anyone would say 'no', there are bands out there that are hated more becuase of there fanbase, on top of the music they make

for example....i dont like simple plan, because i dont like there music. thats just me. but when i hear about them, i think of there whiney, 14 year old emo fans, being ballsy enough to say things like 'simple plan is one of the greatest bands out there!!" and that makes me dislike the band even more, as odd as this may sound

^ Thats sad that you can't admit to liking a band because of other fans. If you like a band say it , don't hide it for fear thats ****in' stupid.
#19
i think that the fans help with all the hate, definitely. but that's not the only thing, if i thought MCR or FOB made good music, i wouldn't give a sh*t about the other fans.

but gladly, i despise them just as much as any other guy.

like this forum and RHCP? lmao..

they're a damn good band, but jesus man.. it seems like everyone who obsesses over them gets way too into them.. refusing to admit that someone in the last 15 years could possibly be better than frusciante (best guitarist of this era thread..), to just straight up getting offended when you say you don't like something about the band.

Yah well the bands tend not to be that intriguing in the first place. AKA we might be able to listen/tollerate them, but we get a bad first impression with whiny little emo kids and then when we do listen to them we probably go "URGH! this sucks balls" cause all we can think of is the whiny little emo kids. Most things are based off first impressions, if a first impression is bad and there is continual exposure to that music it'll probably be seen as bad for a while (unless you can't stop the music playing in which case with enough time you'll start liking stuff about the music)... I used to not be able to stand death metal but as I kept listening to more and more of it I began to like it and now love it.

i try and listen to music and understand where people are coming from when they like the band.

I'd listen to Fall out boy or My Chemical Romance before three days grace, any day
#31
It makes me think of the band as being more stupid when they have these crappy teen fans, but its not detrimental to their music.

Yes because there's only one person in the band.

I personally hate most Straylight Run, Taking Back Sunday, and Brand New fans because they're like, "Zomg Jese/Adam/John r leik s000 h0ttt0rz!!!!!! lolllololoololo," but I still love their music. Also, the A7X "xXhxcXx" kids that think they're the metalest thing ever.
