You suck. These dudes work hard and are deserving of the success they are receiving. They did their warped tour stint this year in a van with no trailer...seems like something Buddy would respect. People are allowed to play pop rock. The Downtown Fiction play their instruments live, they write their own lyrics, and they do it well.
You are entitle to your own opinion. I don't know how old people who like this band are, but when I was younger I heard a handful of bands that did it better than these guys... If ten years go by and a new band, such as DTF comes along, and they are playing the same music that was played and was popular way back when they do not have my respect. They are banking off someone's else's idea. Plain and simple.
