Holy crap this band is terrible.

lp670sv 04/13/11 03:23 PM

He almost seems sober...

StepsInADance 04/13/11 03:23 PM

I used to hate them, now I hate them and anyone who actually thinks this is good.

mister fresh 04/13/11 03:23 PM

4Who4What 04/13/11 03:25 PM

lp670sv 04/13/11 03:26 PM

love the three man mosh pit in the second video

SmileWithASmirk 04/13/11 03:26 PM

not bad not good but not bad , though ill admit , there starting to grown on me..

HANDSONDECK 04/13/11 03:27 PM

Presented by bud light... fucking priceless.

Also, the fact that people like this band appalls me.

Fringe 04/13/11 03:27 PM

Didn't mind the first song so much, it was okay. The second was ehh...

I'll never understand why so many kids idolize this band

Thomas Nassiff 04/13/11 03:28 PM

So so so so so bad

downrightamazed 04/13/11 03:29 PM

Hahah. I like checking out bands like these whenever they get mainstream exposure and this one did not fail to deliver.

The first one is a straight up radio rock tune, no screaming and just melodies all over the place.. And then the next one is crabcore in full effect.

Also, what the fuck did he say in the bridge of the second song? He started saying "This is the medium for me to say this, all you people here, all you people watching on tv...." and then he went straight into "We don't want to die....So buy or cd so that you can keep us alive".

..What the?

honestykills 04/13/11 03:29 PM

this sucks.

xlife2lifelessx 04/13/11 03:30 PM

this was bad, like really bad

jjm1 04/13/11 03:30 PM

the sad thing is i only had heard of this band through isanyoneup, so many images i can never get out of my head from going to that site.

Redpaperkut 04/13/11 03:31 PM

This band doesn't deserve to be on TV, let alone a stage.

I am Mick 04/13/11 03:32 PM

such a shit band

whoelsebutchris 04/13/11 03:35 PM

They're okay, I can't stand the new album though.

xxero182 04/13/11 03:36 PM

seriously, how the hell did they get on Kimmel? are they really that big? they are not good enough for that

WerdnaNBD 04/13/11 03:36 PM

This is really the only way I ever pay attention to shitty core bands like this.

A lot of shitty music sells a lot. What's your point?

UnderclasHero 04/13/11 03:38 PM

Sounds a lot better than usual. You know, not being drunk and everything.

Large music sales does not mean good music.

"SUCK IT" was the point. Pretty self explanatory.

Your Ten after Two avatar takes away your right to have an opinion.


Go hang yourself.

athdrummer19 04/13/11 03:47 PM

this band is fucking garbage.

BLeClair12 04/13/11 03:53 PM

Not only was that absolutely horrible, but they've got to be one of the most uninteresting bands to watch perform that I've ever seen. Some bands simply cannot perform live, but make up for it with stage presence. They're just a double shot of awful.

The fact that anyone could still take this band seriously after that episode is baffling to me.

hogfan1228 04/13/11 03:56 PM

I can think of 100 bands that deserve to be on a big show like this more than them. Then another 100 that I'd rather see...

Dirge07 04/13/11 03:57 PM

...this can make it on Kimmel? Wow...

quizonmyface 04/13/11 03:57 PM

Sumerian Records facebook page said earlier today that Asking Alexandria are one of the 'most ground breaking and talented groups in music' (or something to that effect)

I lol'd.

HeavenResign 04/13/11 04:00 PM

31k sales...that means this band is as popular (in terms of current album sales) as Circa Survive. That is just sad as hell.

TheRealJohnOC 04/13/11 04:02 PM

lol at the middle of the song rant in the 2nd song. This is my first time listening to AA. Does the lead singer always sound like a whiny mix of Jeremy from ADTR and M Shadows?

yayitsjoe 04/13/11 04:03 PM

...why?

eatbabiesyum 04/13/11 04:03 PM

way better than i expected, and still terrible. oh and the screaming was horrrrrrrible.

Chrisj182 04/13/11 04:04 PM

Awful, the next ADTR. Still, got to love a British band on live American tv.

yeah you're totally right. nickleback sells a ton of albums so they must be the best...oh and miley cyrus is better than most bands because she sells more than them.


but whatever, since you'll listen to anything with mindless chugs.

Young Machetes 04/13/11 04:11 PM

Hahaha. I'm fine with bands like this, as long as they put out enjoyable music.

There is nothing enjoyable about Asking Alexandria.

Napzz 04/13/11 04:12 PM

Their music is fun...

armoireofdoom 04/13/11 04:13 PM

I can't believe they hit 31k on the top 200. That means there's thirty one thousand people I dislike.
