Can't wait for the album, these guys (girl) are one of my favorite bands.

Edit: Okay they're starting some beef on that one answer. It's worse bands out there then CIWWAF and Boys Like Girls. And calling Fall Out Boy Bullshit? I like these guys but I don't like when bands talk shit about other bands. Talk shit about crunkcore if you want to bash something...

I adore these guys. I love how every time they get asked where the name comes from they give a different story too =p I never want to know for sure where it came from.

Also, I love their answer to #6

There is a huge difference between saying you don't like a band and saying that Fall Out Boy do not play or sing on their records.

i was going to say i liked their answers until the bullshit about fob and panic. are they really trying to say that fob does not sing/play on their cds? :|
i have yet to see one of these interviews where the band doesn't end up looking ignorant or like assholes (or both). great concept, but just..ugh.

I would've been better if they just addressed the lack of genuine musicianship in the industry today instead of calling out bands specifically. But I do love 1997.

It’s one thing to not like a band, but it’s like they’re implying that, just because a band writes catchy pop music they have no talent. Then they take a picture with Jeffree “Fucking” Starr…I mean…come on guys!

1997 are gangstas for talking shit about other better bands to feel better about themselves

but in all seriousness, 1997 are so sloppy live. Cute & FOB are always on target when i see them live

wish more bands would use their answer for #6 haha

This may be a little OT but I really don't understand how J* ends up being "friends" with so many legit people. How are they so accepting of him when he is an embodiment of what the fuck is wrong with not only the industry, but a lot of the "scene" in general. And I'm not talking about his appearance because I could not care less about that. I'm talking about his attitude and how he treats others.

It's not "funny" or "ironic". It's plain ignorant, obnoxious and disrespectful.

It sickens me.

I like the band, but I sense some jealousy that those other bands are bigger than them.

I don't think it's a big deal that they talk shit on bands like fall out boy or boys like girls. That's their opinion on them. We all have our opinions. It's whatever.

I don't think there is jealousy because these bands are bigger than them. Maybe they're just pissed because they hardly get recognition for the music they make. It's damn good music, too. They all have talent flowing through them, go to one of their shows.

I don't get what the big deal about Jeffree either. They aren't saying anything about loving Jeffree's music. They're friends with him, so what?
