part two of the never ending discussion [Jul. 18th, 2006|10:50 pm]


[music |the weeping song]

i had to continue it; my follow up.

i think many bands do not get credit that they deserve because of many of their fans.

like (my favorite) marilyn manson. the moment you hear that, it's almost comical. thats because the majority of his fans are hot topic worshiping musically retarded dumbasses. it completely mutes the message within the music of many popular artists. like bowling for soup, which was mentioned previously.

it's not the artist's fault that the fans they seemed to have gathered are completely opposite of what the band stands for. i'm just sick of it.

lol, yeah, thats it.

Amennn man. I was a huuuuge Green Day fan (overkill has made me start to despise them) and when American Idiot came out all the lil teeny boppers who were just getting into "punk" decided they were hardcore Green Day fans running around in arm bands and drippy eyeliner, which gave Green Day a bad image, but if you listen to the lyrics on AI they are actually pretty damn good.

first of all, all people are shitty people.
i'm talking about people that have no clue about art.
marilyn manson's music to a common hot topic junky would be like "wow he looks scary and he hates everything so i think i'll listen to him all the time" when in fact he is intelligent; using numerology, symbolism, and history within his music to describe social flaws and personal dilemas.
idiots, like 99% of people, can't even fully comprehend what he's talking about. and my point above is that those dumb people create sterotypes for the artist, when it's just them being uncultured and uneducated.
