    I've garnered a lot of criticism from people who don't understand the concept of music being a universal language. I listen to a lot of JRock, and I've had people tell me things like "oh, you listen to that Chinese shit? You don't even understand the words, how can you enjoy it?", and one of my personal faves is "Chinese musicians look gay!". First of all, they're Japanese, and second of all if you're going to be spreading the xenophobe vibe into my atmosphere then you better step! And third, the one who inspired me to pick up the guitar happens to be one of the most beloved musicians in Japan, he's on my avatar btw (R.I.P, hide). :bowdown::hbang::shred:

    Ha, really? When I saw them (supporting also) they were booed off too. I wonder if this is a common occurance for them. :scratch:

    Which leads me to the most ignorant thing anyone has ever said about music to me. Some girls I was talking to were saying how they liked Bring Me The Horizon, which I thought was weird because they usually like acoustic pop sort of songs. I asked them why they liked them and they said "Because the lead singer is hot." :spock: Now there are so many things wrong with that, but the one I can't figure out is why they would think he is hot. :lol:

    Really? :nuts: (The dude on the far right (Looks like a drummer :lol:) is the only one that looks normal for a metal band to me)

    Anytime you ask someone what they listen to, they all say the same thing... "Oh I listen to everything!"

    And I always follow it up with, "Including death metal?" ;)

    Or if I feel like giving them a chance, I'll say, "Including metal?" To which they typically reply, "Oh yeah! Ummm... you mean like... uhhh... Nirvana? Or ummm... uhhh... Red Hot Chili Peppers is metal, right?" :rolleyes:

    Bring Me The Horizon got bottled off the stage at Reading Festival last year, they didn't receive as a severe bottling as Good Charlotte in 2003, but BMTH were a 'surprise' band so people weren't prepared haha.

    this kind of thing gets me really angry because I feel like I literally try to listen to everything (which to me seems almost impossible; there's so much music out there!) and when i come across those kinds of people they generally listen to everything they hear on the radio... not really the same as "everything". they like rap, pop, country and "hard rock"... that covers everything, right? :lol: we all know that jazz is just elevator music, not real music. metal of any kind is just noise. reggae is just pot smoking music and it is also the same exact thing as ska and rock steady. and all foreign music is in another language so it doesn't matter. :nuts: :lol:

    Yeah same happened when I saw them, it was at gigantour and they were a surprise band before Lacuna Coil (Who were ripped off on the sound but were actually pretty good) and by the end everyone was chanting "Fuck off! fuck off!"

    I've just remembered, I was in HMV looking at CDs a few weeks ago with my girlfriend and some of her friends. one of her friends Emma picked up a Bloodbath CD, look horrified by it :ugh: and said to me "you listen to this? you're horrible :("

    :lol:

    that's fuckin' awesome! :lol:

    i love girls' reactions to metal. i played miles of machines for this chick once. and she heard the very beginning and was like oh that's really crazy. so then when he started playing it distorted it all of a sudden wasn't as cool anymore...? btw... this same chick told me she went to a thrice concert like it was the coolest experience of her life... :scratch:

    i don't like them very much. i just find it interesting that she was turned off by the distortion and to my knowledge thrice uses quite a bit as well. not only that, but the opening part and the part when the distortion kick in are the EXACT SAME THING. :nuts:

    Me too, to an extent. I haven't heard too much beyond that first big album, but I did enjoy that one. Not much replay value since the first year that I bought it, but I liked it at the time. :yesway:

    they've got better I reckon.

    they did the whole 'make the heavy parts heavier and make the mellow parts more mellow' thing, which is called maturing apparently :lol:

    I thought 'maturing' was directly correlated to the number of songs on your album that feature a full string ensemble. ;)
