You have a strange definition of notable.
Oh, you mean the one that is defined as doing something that is worthy of note? Because that band has done nothing that fits that term.
Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them.
-Johannes Brahms

Also, I assure you that I'm not an undercover ink agent
Lol yeah, let's use a quote from a musician about basically whinning about critics and people putting down I'm guessing his own work to make your point. Oh no, people don't like things and will speak up about it, the nerve!

no. i meant the one about housewives.

please turn this into a sentence. as far as the rest, you missed the point. it's not the speaking up part, it's the disgust for people who don't share your view. and how you get off on attacking them for it. think of it like a complex explanation of "misery loves company."

you see, you feel like they haven't done anything noteworthy, because you don't like their music. it has nothing to do with how successful they are (e.g. i feel like lady gaga is not noteworthy, because she hasn't had a single release that i can relate to, respect or even remember, except for that song about oral sex (she kept saying "poke her face" in the chorus), but i've only heard it once... on accident. my point is, it has nothing to do with her popularity, just as your assessment of INK's noteworthiness has nothing to do with how many people like them.

i like INK's music, mostly from their hardcore transition period, because it's largely relateable for me, for the things i was going through at the time, and nothing will change the memories i have from those years. noteworthy is relative to perspective, just like good music, and because of how much their music means to their fans, INK is noteworthy.

Here's an point you can't argue against

Sure I can argue against it, as you're doing the same thing. You're disgusted by how I view the band and so you're attacking me for it, getting off from trying to be being victorious in this argument. So I ask, how are you better than I? I can also argue that your point has very little to do with mine and you're using your own personal connection to their horrible music as a basis for being right. Oh and if you want to attack my grammar, you could take a page out your own book and learn to capitalize your words.

It's like arguing that Bud Light is more notable then a craft beer in a beer discussion because you had a personal connection to it. While that's nice and all, it's still a below average party beer and your point really doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things.

some people only drink bud light. i know a few of those people. i dont criticize their taste when theyre clearly not up for trying a darker ale like "blue moon". it's all a matter of personal preference, and when it comes to INK's music, i prefer their lyrics and sound to many other hardcore bands that i find repulsive.

thanks for giving me an illustration to work with tho. :)

its okay to ignore grammatical rules. its just not okay to be ignorant of them. a little something i learned from the great kurt vonnegut. and i wasn't attacking your grammar, i just genuinely can't understand the babble that i highlighted in bold. i dont care for grammar nazis.

i'm not disgusted, i'm concerned, because you have a pigeon-holed view of what's good. but thats okay. you know what i'm saying? we're both right... INK is awesome, but theyre also terrible. same as bud light is colored water, but it's also beer fit for a king.

not everything is so black and white. dont let the obligation you feel towards "others" on this site or in your life affect how you feel about music. its not fair and it wont make you happy to pretend. i used to pretend to like 70's and 80's metal, until i realized how sad that music makes me. it was so shallow lyrically, unrelateable, just awful. but other people liked it. i couldn't understand why. so i pulled the plug.

if you're being honest to yourself about hating that terrible INK music, then go right on hating, but dont try to force those of us who enjoy it to conform to yours and jason's tastes.

To be frank, I don't pretend with my tastes in music. I like what I like regardless of how others view it and what I don't like, you bet your ass I'm going to say something about it. I always have and I always will. If you don't like my opinion, oh well then.

I think it's hilarious that 4+ years after that Tate drama bullshit, they STILL aren't even relevant. They've been at it for what seems like the past 6 years yet aren't even doing anything. Sucks.
yea i totally agree! playing shitty tours like the all stars tour 2 summers in a row, opening for tours with bands that no one cares about over the last year like ETID, Suicide Silence, Attila, Issues, Norma Jean, Playing 2 weeks of Warped Tour this summer, debuting at # 9 on the billboard heatseekers charts this past january without distribution, etc. etc. really seems like they aren't starting to do well....
