Great idea. Great article as well. I love watching shows live and I have only heard a few backing tracks that were noticeable and it was really distracting and not as enjoyable.

Great column idea!

I'm not super-knowledgeable on sports (the sports forum is slightly intimidating), but I see myself enjoying these.

Black Veil Brides are the Greg Oden of the Warped Tour scene...meaning their shit is busted and they need to run off to Miami.

This is a great column. I wish he would have called some bands out though; would have been great. He's also namedropping CJ Wilson so extra points.

Meh their music sucks but are they really known for backtracking that much? I thought the big controversy was just because of their fake amps. I got the impression he was mainly talking about bands like I See Stars and Crown The Empire.

Hellogoodbye, for instance, uses a primary vocal backing track. Saw the guy drop his microphone once and what do you know, his vocals kept going. Lame.

Great article from a great frontman of a great band. Thanks for sharing this. I look forward to the next one.

I think key word here is "tasteful." Added ambience and texture through use of loops and backing tracks is cool. If you straight up play the track and fake along to it. Horrible.

On a side note: no one seems too angry when fall out boy does this with their new stuff. Or are they doing it tastefully

Would you guys consider vocal harmonies on the back track to be too far?

Backing tracks with vocal harmonies, strings, keys/synths, or even more in a pinch (band member quits, etc.) is fine.

But if you're going to walk up onto a stage with your guitar (or mic, drum kit, or anything else), you better actually play it.

Yeah, they should have brought a choir on every tour to sing that 15-second snippet
