Well, they'll still have Claudio being a dick and/or stoned.. so who knows.

In 2002 and 2003, this band was one of my favorite bands. Funny how a bunch of shitty live shows and subpar albums can change my feelings on them so much.

Heh, yea; AFI is completely off topic to this convo :)

Ten years ago, AFI had JUST signed to small Nitro Records; it'd be another 3-4 years until they'd define their new, amazing sound (1999).

I speak only for myself, but:

I don't hate them "because they're popular". That's completely not my style--from Jersey, I've seen bands like MCR in the smallest of basements and houses. When they exploded, I most certainly never hated on them for a moment.

Coheed is a different story:

I saw them many times. On the Thursday/Thrice tour, Claudio stopped in the middle of my then-favorite CoCa song (Delirium Trigger) and just started going on some baked out rant about him getting high and stepping on a nail, while the rest of the band tried to force him to carry on. It was embarassing.

I saw them in Webster Hall; they had to play Welcome Home twice. The second time, Claudio was a complete dick to everyone.

I know all about Claudio's drunken rampage in Canada.

I saw them open for Underoath, it was weak.

In the SSTB era, their live show was more spot on (perhaps because the songs were much simpler). I appreciate a long song, but some of their newer songs border on excessive--some of them are very excessive. Just because you CAN, doesn't mean you SHOULD.

Coheed has just been on a downward spiral for me. I imagine other people feel the same way, though I do imagine your'e correct--a lot of douchebags hate on a band for getting success.
