How many of you have had concert expiriences seeing your favorite band of all time but yet you hate the crowd more than anything?

For me when I went to see Modest Mouse a year ago parts of the crowd didn't know what was going on when they played their old stuff. People were starting fights and began to kill my mood after traveling 200 miles to see them on a school night.

I went and saw Ladytron last night and kept on being harrassed by two gay guys trying to dance with me and kept on asking me all these weird ass questions. (I have nothing against gays btw)

At Built To Spill I had these two british chicks who were drunk as hell spilt beer all over my clothes laughing at me about it.

Just situations like these just kill my mood and make me enjoy the show less and less..
Fender 72' Thinline Telecaster
Fender 72' Telecaster Custom Deluxe
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

It's obvious I don't like fender at all

HORSE the BAND

Taste of Chaos in MN, I got pissed at some people who were pushing, not moshing, pushing during A7x's Seize The Day, first off it is a slow song so why mosh? And it also is one of my favorites so I was pissed about getting hit numerous times while trying to listen...

Oh well....I guess that is just asshole concert-goers for you...

Was at a TOOL concert and some kids in the crowd actually moshed during Wings/10000 days, a song about Maynards mother's death.

When I saw Buckethead people were moshing to Soothsayer.

Needless to say I was not amused.

I went to see Coheed and Cambria when they happened to be touring with Avenged Sevenfold.

2 totally different bands, 2 EXTREMELY different fan bases.

In general, the Avenged Sevenfold fans were dicks (no offense to you UG AX7 fans) and wouldn't shut up when Coheed and Cambria started performing and acted too cool to cheer when they did their set.

BUT OF COURSE

when Avenged Sevenfold comes on,

they practically shat themselves.

I really don't think it was good thinking on both of the bands behalf to tour together.

Mostly because both of the fans bases are extremely different and they kind of clash. :/

I think even Claudio said once that the fan bases were just really different and they didn't think they would tour with Avenged again because of it.

i personally dislike metalhead crowds, not themselfves but their style, actions and dress. I dress slightly, how to put it, "preppy" sometimes or like a "bro", an p eople always give you looks at metal/hardcore shows. Last show i went in a red tommy hilfiger shirt with white stripes and i became a target for scruffy longhaired idiots in the pit. got 4 clotheslines and wa son the ground 6 times. i knocked someone the fuvk out though, inadvertantly but it felt like payback!!

Moshing to Tool is really good if the people around you are familiar with the songs!

Sorry, but because you listen to Tool doesn't mean you're intelligent.

I hate going to shows and I'm one of the oldest there. The rest of the kids don't give a crap about anyone else, are drunk, are a mix of those two, are are just scene hipsters who annoy the people there to support some good music, not some talentless band chugging the low E string for half an hour.
#15
I hate moshing too :p I also hate 2 meter dudes that stands right infront of me...
#16
I hate when entire crowds stand there with their arms crossed...

Because I end up doing it too due to massive peer pressure.

It's okay to do silly dances folks.

If you go to a show with metal bands there will be moshing...its kind of a traditional activity thats been going on at metal shows for like 30 years...
I don't think that it constitutes calling the people who do this asshole concert-goers

if people aren't really moshing, just trying to pick a fight or do that stuff out of the pit where others are just watching then thats wrong and they are assholes, but if you're near the pit or something than it is only expected that it will happen and it has to be accepted


personally what pisses me off is the hardcore dancing at a metal show and vice versa...there is a place and time and that is not it lol...people tried doing that at the last black dahlia murder show and JFAC show and lets just say there was no more hxc dancing after about 30 seconds haha

another thing that really pisses me off is excessively drunk/high people that get all sweaty and keep bumping into you, spilling drinks on you, hitting you and blowing their ganja smoke in your face when your trying to enjoy the show...they can go to hell

None of those bands are hardcore.

Seriously, please stop saying hardcore if you don't know like likes of Verse, Champion or Bane.

I hate people who take ****ty quality videos/photos on their phones, when they're in front of me. If you're near the back, you can just see loads of lights in the audience (phones), and it spoils any effect the band are trying to create with lighting.

And then they post it on youtube, where you can't even hear the fricking song, because the sound quality is so awful. What a ****ing waste.

funny how A7X keep coming up in this convo...
im a massive A7X fan, so i was gutted when i ended up getting shoved out of the way by a bunch of scene dicks when i was near-ish the front
also, i nearly died when Bloodsimple (who supported them) were playing cus i couldnt breathe, it was that tight
so i ended up watching from the back, which wasnt as bad as i had expected, but i still would've preferred being at the front

Been to 2 gigs(), green day at MK bowl, which had a good crowd, and Stone Sour, where the crowd was amazing, everyone siging all the way through Bother and Through glass, most the way through the rest of the songs, and there was a small pit for the heavy songs.

I've only been to a 311 concert and everything was fine. The crowd, I was in the second row, around me was well mannered enough. I think 311 fans are pretty chill though.
