    Every now and often we get people from the audience who come up to us and say things that just don't make any sense at all or they're totally hilarious. This thread is dedicated to those comments and the people who say them. :lol:

    Just remember dear audience, we love you, but you're crazy sometimes. :nuts:

    hehe, can't say I've encountered anything of such.

    Though there is one guy here in town known as "Patches". Always gets wasted and screams "KILL ALL POSERS" in between every other song. Sometimes steals the mic and says it through that as well. lol

    but really that's as much as I've witnessed =/

    For section 3 guy maybe he had OCD and wanted the instruments to have even numbers of strings instead of uneven hahaha!

    There was a guy I knew that thought every band was copying essentially Manowar and Malmsteen. We went to concerts with him just so we can argue with him afterwards about this hahahahaha! I think after a few times he finally caught on to us and stopped expressing himself even though I am sure he never changed his mind!

    My band played away from our hometown a week ago.

    Then there was a wasted old man who steps forwards (while we are playing) and starts to scream "STOP IT!!!!" Then he headbanged some, puked and ran away.

    I have a habit of shouting, "play Hammer Smashed Face!!" regardless of what band is on stage if that counts.

    Not necessarily what the audience said, but what I heard:

    Dude: Man, you guys melted my face!
    Me: What?! I hit you in the face?! I'm so sorry, man!

    This was an actual fear, because when I play the only things I have control over are my fingers. My other limbs just kind of flail around, most of the time taking my guitar with them.

    "play some Korn"

    Gets shouted a lot around here.

    other than that the kiddies at the hardcore shows can't really shout because their jeans are too tight.

    /Thread really lol

    Nothing weird has been ever said to me apart from "can you get me the singers number" which at the time was weird cause it was a well known fact that me and the singer were together, and he meant it.

    Almost every single gig in here, there is always some few bums that keep shouting "Wall of Death!!" or even "Puffokout !!" (Referring to a local band's song about taking a knife hit, but in french :p)

    People here are crazy as shit (in the good way !), every single bands (either local or international ones) often state our town as one of the craziest place to play a gig 'coz, we aren't in great number as we live in a small town but every single motherfuckers in here knows that having a great metal shows with great bands is a privilege in such a small town :p !

    After a show.

    Kid: Hey what kind of pickups are those in your guitar? I like your tone. And i need new pups for my guitar.

    Me: Oh, they are SD Blackouts.

    Kid: OHHHHH....i don't want a black metal sound i guess ill just buy EMG's

    :scratch::lol::scratch::lol::scratch::lol:

    I don't even play anything close to black metal...so i would like to know how he came to the conclusion they sounded 'black metal'. I was in a metalcorish band at the time.

    :wallbash:
