This Week's Question: Worst Music Fans?

Which band has the worst and most annoying music fans ever? Share you nominations here.

This Week's Question: Worst Music Fans?
14
Music fans should be brothers united - but some music fans are unbearable to others. We can respect music from any background, but it's fair to say that some bands attract a crowd which is less appealing than others. And sometimes those fans can even do a disservice to the band they follow, who may or may not be great themselves. This week's question is:

Which band has the worst fans?

It might be a metal band with horribly aggressive fans, rap artists like Insane Clown Posse, or even a pop artist like Lady Gaga whose annoying "little monster" following drive you nutty. Post one nomination per comment, and up vote others that you agree with. We'll collect your answers into an infuriating top 10 list this Friday.

    People who only one song from a particular band and claim that's there favorite band ever.

    or people that wear popular band shirts like the ramones or the misfits without knowing their music
    tuh hah miss
    I hate being that guy. But my little sister spent a decent amount of time and money making me a Kinks shirt. I only know a few of their songs and don't listen to them often, but I'll be damned if someone says I can't wear a shirt my sister made for me because I don't know the music that well.

    The worst are the Che Guevara t-shirts! Most of those who wear his now legendary visage on their chests don't know two hoots about who he was or what he stood for! I remember asking a random cretin about it and he replied with 'Che, full blown metal dude! \m/ '.

    This. I feel as though ever since Mitch Lucker's passing of Suicide Silence happened, a huge fan base randomly appeared only because he died. And most people know one song from them.

    You forgot EDM enthusiasts. Although not a band, electronic music has some pretty lame followers. They act like it's the pinnacle of music and more revolutionary than any other genre before it.

    What I hate are when bands change for the worse and people post "If you were REALLY a fan then you'd listen to them no matter what!" I listened to them because I liked their music, I'm not gonna force myself to listen to crap because I idolize the musicians.

    really annoying straight edge kids that talk about how much they don't do drugs (almost as much as the stoners talk about pot).

    Asking Alexandria. I like a few songs, but their fans are awful.

    Falling In Reverse/Escape the Fate and Hollywood Undead fans are also bloody annoying.
    Nero Galon
    Fearless Vampire Killers' fans drive me mental -_-

    Metallica fanboys! I love Metallica, especially the CLiff Burton era, everybody is a Metallica fan but these fanboys are so full of themselves that they troll random threads going \m/ Metallica \m/! And most of them never heard any other band.

    Agreed. I'm a huge fan of the band, but as a 20 year old guy who looks like James Hetfield, I can't stand their fans.

    A7X fans are actually one of the first ones that comes to mind for me. Especially the ones that raid Loudwire.
    s7peterson
    those are the radicals. you got ones like me, that are respectful of other people. But I do get what you mean.
    shlepy
    Sorry to say this but Iron Maiden fans.....nah Die hard metal fans, or purists are in my opinion annoying, punks too

    *Insert random metalcore band* fangirls

    Well then, Bring Me The Horizon fits that description perfectly.
    tuh hah miss
    Fun story: This summer, I went to Warped. At my location, Sleeping With Sirens, Black Veil Brides, and Never Shout Never were the three bands (in that order) that played directly before Bring Me The Horizon. I'm sure you can only imagine the fangirl population. There was only a couple minutes between sets. I didn't really see any BMTH fangirls there, as they must have known to stay away from the pit area (the openers didn't have pits). Anyways, BMTH got onstage and immediately started a pretty aggressive show. The only thing louder than the music was the annoying fangirls from the previous acts screaming to get out of the crowd. It was glorious. I never thought I'd see the day when Bring Me The Horizon helped crush the fangirls.

    Green Day fans who haven't listened to anything pre American Idiot. Don't get me wrong, I like their later stuff too, but you're not a fan just because you jumped on the band wagon when they became megastars! Beliebers have to take this award though, just for their sheer stupidity. Read some of their comments on Twitter if you ever need a laugh!
