LMFAO! I See Stars gets caught with hallucinogens. You have to check out their mug shots. Too funny. I can’t wait for their official statement. They’ll probably blame it on a fan or another band. Just own up to it guys. Please.

This is a huge fucking problem. It’s called ignorance. None of these bands are screamo. Anyway, I get a lot of hatemail (what a surprise). However, here are some quotes that I feel represent my situation.
To the fool, he who speaks wisdom will sound foolish. ~ Euripides
Wise men learn more from fools than fools from the wise. ~ Cato
Matt Good, Nick Martin, and Aaron Stern have all left D.R.U.G.S. following the news of Craig Owens rejoining Chiodos. Considering that Craig Owens is the only member remaining in the band, it can certainly be speculated that D.R.U.G.S. has come to an end entirely. Read a statement from the three members below by clicking “Read More.”
If you’ve learned anything form me it’s that bands are fake as fuck. If you’ve subscribed to me you’re probably not an ignorant twit, but for those of you that still need help just listen to me please. I told you this would happen. Bands like D.R.U.G.S. are just throw aways. They mean nothing. Stop listening to pointless music with no substance. Don’t you understand I’m here for you not just to bash everything (although bashing is super fun too).
just saw an old blog on act as one of yours, and can see where your coming from in terms of drop and breakdowns, but i don't thing you can to refer to them as former metal core kids, the fact is that easycore has been around for quite a while and it's literally just heavier pop punk so i don't see your whole rant about it being a bad thing. Act as one are actually a pretty good band in my opinion.
Bunch of haters in the ol’ mail box this week haha.
yo dawg, listen … I know what easy-core be, and i’m well aware of its origins. It is a bad thing, because to do it well you actually have to be a decent musician. the genre is full of a bunch of clowns that have been playing their instruments for two weeks.
also, you’re probably a nice dude, but you’re too young to have a credible musical opinion. that’s why i’m here. read my blog and thank me later.
I am not dating anyone in AAO..? and I am not even saying this because of them, it's because you literally have a blog dedicated to shitting on bands. The fact that you are sitting there ripping on people doing what they enjoy on a regular basis is fucked.
Ah, you’re right, I did some poor research haha. I’m still assuming that band is somehow related to you finding my blog. i’ll edit my post, not that it matters … no one reads my blog anyway :/
that being said, i think you’ve got me all wrong. i’m trying to help people by teaching them to discern the good from the bad. For example, my most recent post is about how much I like Heavy Heavy Low Low, a semi-obscure band from California.
Even if you don’t agree with what I’m doing, at least my content is nearly 100% original. I could just repost other people’s pictures all day like the rest of tumblr and say something like “derp this picture is cool”.
Also, just because someone enjoys doing something doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be ripped on for it. Some people “enjoy” sticking cucumbers in their ass, and some people “enjoy” making insufferable music. Both are totally worth ripping on.
Wait, so you spend your days finding bands you think suck and talk about them? fuck your life sucks.
My life sucks? You’re the one sitting around searching for hashtags containing the name of your boyfriend’s band.
They aren’t even that bad. Just typical and boring, therefore … annoying. Actually, now that I read the post, I barely even shit on them. I’m not sure what got you all upset, but I’m guessing it’s because you know I’m right.
In case you wanted to know why this girl feels the need to insult me here is my original post about her boyfriend’s mediocre band.
you're an actual dickhead. please do something better and constructive with your life haha.
Chill with the name calling silly; I’m only trying to help you. I’d be more upset with my friends for not telling me I was a bad singer. However, you’re in luck, all you have to do is practice and you’ll (probably) get better. Start by listening to decent bands, then maybe take some vocal lessons. You’re welcome. kbye.
Thanks Four Year Strong (not my style, but actually talented), you guys really fucked things up. Now bands like Act As One and other former metal-core kids want to be just like you. I used to think dubstep fans waited for the drop, but this genre takes the cake, hands down. Why write a song when you can write a breakdown?
Admittedly this is the only song I’ve heard by So Many Ways so I might be misjudging them; however, it is my assumption that most of their songs sound this way. Yell a little, sing a chorus or two, toss in bridge. Anyway, their predictability is not what bothers me. It’s all the weird shit they do.
Like what’s up with the annoying ass solo/lead at the end of the song? Also, fuck off with the preachy talky bullshit in the bridge. This is another thing that Set Your Goals has ruined for everyone. Please Stop talking in songs. Especially when you have nothing interesting to say. On rare occasion does this get a pass, but the lyrics have to be good.
Okay last thing. The super contrived stomp part. Completely unnecessary. Super annoying. You’re not Trash Talk, you’re not Trapped Under Ice. You guys, and every other band like you, need to figure out your genre and stick to it. I understand that you are influenced by a bunch of different music. So is everyone else. Did you know that Taking Back Sunday was influenced by Lifetime. Could you imagine if they threw a punk beat into a song like “You’re So Last Summer”. It would have completely ruined the tone of the song.
All you bands out their that aren’t reading this. STOP TRYING TO MAKE A MUSIC CASSEROLE AND WRITE A SONG.
I’m sure no one even knows who this band is, but for some reason tooth and nail signed them. Shit like this just confuses me and I wanted to make sure that you all understand the difference between a good song and good production.
Every day it is becoming easier to afford high quality recording because the technology is getting cheeper to produce and less difficult use. For example, Sent By Ravens has written a terrible song called "Mean What You Say". The song sounds clean and is mixed well so it probably doesn’t bother you to hear it. However, that doesn’t make the song good. Besides the terrible lyrics and cheesy rock vocals, this song has some of the most simple and predictable arrangements I’ve ever heard. It’s essentially a zero on the creativity and talent scales.
I wish that I could write one minute of music and turn it into four minutes like Life On Repeat. By wish, I mean I wish I could live with myself after cutting and pasting an entire song together. Welcome to the future of music. I don’t mean this band; I mean music that completely lacks dynamics. It’s hard to explain, but notice how the breakdown doesn’t feel heavy at all? That’s because it’s not. Not only are they just ringing out while the drummer plays at a different tempo, but all the velocity levels are the same.
Also, about the vocals. There are robots that sound more human than this guy. Fucking chill out on the melodyne.
Okay, I don’t know Cassadee Pope or the guys from Hey Monday, but my assumption is that she is a huge fucking bitch that’s in it for herself. How do you go on a “solo” tour and play songs from your old band and take all new musicians with you? The only way this would be cool is if the guys in Hey Monday didn’t want to keep touring. I have a feeling it went more like this. Hey Monday is not a real band; therefore, the songs don’t belong to her backup musician’s they belong to some record company. The guys that spent the last 4 years touring have been told to fuck off so that Cassadee can make more money. If this is true. Cassadee, you’re a bitch. I’d say stand up for your friends, but I bet you’re not even friends with them. They’re just a group of guys that got told to hold instruments behind you. If I’m wrong then I’m sorry for judging you. jk … i’m never wrong.
Oh yeah here is the article where she blatantly explains that Hey Monday isn’t a real band.
Black Cards released a statement just a little while ago that made it seem like the band would be breaking up. Pete Wentz has now confirmed that Black Cards are not breaking up. Check out a tweet from Wentz below by clicking “Read More.”
You can listen to the outdated and underwhelming debut song by Falling In Reverse “Raised by Wolves” here. There’s not much to say about this song. It’s so mediocre that it doesn’t even get a reaction from me. I’d rather hate a song than just shrug my shoulders at it.
What’s more important to note is that the drama has already started for these guys. Apparently Ronnie has already kicked out Nason or Nasty or whatever his dumb band alias name was. The best part about this is that in Ronnie’s own words Nason "was his brother" and "had his back" the whole time he was in prison. And to repay Nason for all his friendship Ronnie had this to say.
Bahahahahahahaha!!!! I love it. I can’t wait until this band breaks up. Oh, and in case you don’t know which super lame played out scene kid is Nason, he’s the tool in the back.
AWESOME NEWS - Rise Records signs Hands Like Houses
This song is so underwhelming it’s actually impressive. You couldn’t have asked someone to write a song lacking more in emotion. Have you guys ever heard of a little thing called dynamics. Great job Rise Records. Hands Like Houses is another AWESOME addition. You and Photo Finish Records should team up to make a winter sampler. You could subtly title it “The Worst Comp Ever”.
AWESOME REVIEW: With the Punches - "Harvard on The Hudson"
Look, this post is just going to be me being picky. I’d say melodic hardcore/pop-punk/hardcore are genres I’m very familiar with so I just wanted to take the time to teach you the difference between bands that are doing this right and bands that are doing this wrong.
With The Punches, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to single you out I’m just using you as an example. Plenty of bands are worse. What bothers me is that you’re bringing nothing new to the table and you’re copying a vocal fad that caught fire when Set Your Goals decided to ruin posicore. First of all, your name is annoying. “With The Punches” is so cliche it … wait a second, nevermind the name suits you well. Second, two bad singers doesn’t make one good singer. Just figure out who can get the job done and do it. You might be thinking, “hey, what about Title Fight; they have two singers”. Yes, they do. Wow, you can count. I’ll admit Title Fight went a little overboard with the switching on their first release, but if you listen to the album “Shed” I think you’d be pleasantly surprised at the fact that each singer has found his niche. For example, listen to the tracks “27” and “Shed”, then listen to “Dreamcatchers” (B-Side) and “Flood of 72”. Title Fight, you’re doing it right. With The Punches, you and 700 other bands are doing it wrong. If it makes you feel any better you just got the highest score I’ve ever given out, and the outro to your song is legit.
I honestly can’t think of less talented musicians that are this popular. Who are 3OH!3? I mean like what trust fund allows them to make music? Who’s dad is in the record industry? Neither of them can sing, their beats soooo are boring, and it sounds like they use all the default settings…
go see them live, then come back and talk.
This is 3OH!3 live. Thanks for proving my point. You’re a doll.

Neither of them can sing, their beats are soooo boring, and it sounds like they use all the default settings on their samples. Fucking zero creativity. Anyway, to be short this “new” (played out style) song is terrible as expected, and will hopefully be featured on their last album.
You picked the oldest Black Veil Brides song to talk shit about. They've changed a lot. And obviously they are awesome, look at all the awards they've won, it's pretty impressive. Music is subjective. You may not like a band but that doesn't mean they suck. It's your opinion, and you can not speak for all people. This blog is about your opinion. It's distorted by emotion and biased, making it subjective, not objective. Just saying...
If you went to a doctor and he said you have high blood pressure would you say “hey, blood pressure is subjective, and that’s just like your opinion man”? No, you wouldn’t. Think of me as a doctor of music, and the world as my patient. Here’s a diagnosis for you; listening to Black Veil Brides is very unhealthy.
HAHAHA this video is sooo fucked out. It starts out with some dumb conservative speech that tries to make it seem like “people just don’t get us man, we’re like different or something”. Yeah you are different; other bands actually scream instead of inhaling into a microphone. Siq whisper screams too bro. You’re totally killing it. Speaking of faking it, it’s really weird how your drummer’s hi-hat sounds like the ride and the ride sounds like a hi-hat. You should probably get that fixed or something. Also, Hey video kid, I feel zero empathy for you, maybe no one likes you because you sit around the railroad tracks writing in your journal like a creep. In order to make friends try finding some common interests like sports, or video games or somethings. Wait, what the fuck am I talking about? You like Black Veil Brides you have nothing in common with anyone. Another highlight is at about 1:57. Who drives around cemeteries looking for people to beat up? What is with this video? It makes no sense at all. “Hey you! Guess what, you just walk into the wrong cemetery bitch”.
Well fuck me, I was on wikipedia finishing my rant when I came across some unreal shit.
2011 Andy Biersack Revolver Magazine’s 100 Greatest Living Rock Stars
2011 Black Veil Brides Revolver Magazine’s Golden God Awards: Best New Band
No really, this is Awesome News. The world of music doesn’t need anymore mediocre female fronted bands. In all honesty the best thing about this is that the lead singer is now pursuing a “solo career”. Please tell me none of you were fooled by the fact that she had some guys standing around holding instruments. All female fronted bands are solo artists with musicians slapped on. This happens when the girl isn’t good or maybe pretty enough to start “solo” out of the gates. Just don’t be ignorant and think these people are friends or that they came up playing shows together. I also don’t understand why bands like this make announcements. Who is EVER going to care that Hey Monday broke up?
I pretty much summed it up, but you can read the statement for yourself right hurr.
Are you fucking kidding me? Not only was this completely unnecessary and rude but it was really disrespectful. Just because you don’t care about Hey Monday doesn’t mean no one else does. Has your favorite band ever announced hiatus? Obviously not because for those of us who supported and loved this band today fucking sucks. Grow up you ignorant fucking prick.
"Just because you don’t care about Hey Monday doesn’t mean no one else does."
Actually that’s exactly what it means. You = no one. Sorry, that was a little harsh. Basically what I’m saying is that your opinion is invalid because you have terrible taste in music. Chances are when you turn like 20-23ish you’ll look back and laugh at the bands you listened to as a child.
