I have a feeling Anthony Ranieri is turning into Brandon Flowers and just going to bash all popular bands for the sake of bashing them. Call me crazy, I just don't want Ant to become a prententious douchebag.
Funny that all those "popular" bands also coincidentally make garbage in autotune and neon clothes into a shitty ass trend in order to get 12-16 year old girls' daddys' money. Call me crazy, but I think that's more the case.
And anyway, just because he's in a band that everyone knows makes him pretentious? Because I'm not in a band, I'm just in love with music and passion for honest music and reward for hard work, and I talk the same shit on this garbage. Does that make me pretentious? Pretentious about what? It's how I feel. I feel like true diy music is being raped and made a mockery of. It's possible he feels the same.
