You could come up with something better? I think the quote is really all you need to understand that this is funny and dumb.
I could not. I'm horrible with witty titles. And I suppose you're right. The quote pretty much does sum up the interview/thread.

That is ridiculous. Ugh. Especially the bit about Christians. Just... stop it. You have to be trolling.

But I have to admit, I like the DVD idea.

........Ben's statement is obviously slightly hypocritical (particularly if you look at the bands previous album), but i can see where he is coming from and he is right when he says Asking Alexandria are coming away from that scene.

Seriously, it bothers me that they think they're so creative and innovative. And the part where he whines about Christian bands talking about their faith makes him look like a fucking twat.
and the funny thing is that most christian bands (underoath, august burns red, as I lay dying, norma jean) are of a higher caliber than these guys. I'm not even christian but I respect how these guys keep their faith as an important part in their lives and make great music to boot.

Shit, if anything, I hate the fans more than the bands.

thats not fair. i don't really get why people are annoyed by what other people are wearing/how they do their hair/etc. its this guy who thinks he's God's gift to metal that's the real problem. i know alot of people like to hate on slipknot but this guy is insane if he thinks he can compare his sad excuse for a band to slipknot, especially SK's earlier material

This coming from a band that sounds like papa roach meets august burns red. Who are they also to tell christian bands not to preach on stage? They can do whatever they want. P.s. these ass wipes look like every scene band band out their.
please don't ever compare august burns red to these fucks. just as a favor i'm asking you as another human being, please.

Or ABR. They're both on the mainstage. Just seems like a coincedence.
at minnesota at least, ABR (and a day to remember) drew the biggest crowds at warped. even bigger than relient k and simple plan, who were both huge a few years back. so idk if jealousy or not but either way he's completely off-base about the christian bit. the most I have ever seen a christian band talk about a religion is literally less than a minute the whole show, and its not even preaching. its more along the lines of "we're christian but thats cool if you're not, we hope you enjoy our music"

Two things:

1) Anyone who is telling this band to not make music as a career because they're doing it for the money: Quit your shitty job that you only keep because of the money. You hypocritical fucks.

2) If this is a shot at TDWP or ABR, this is pretty low. Two of the best bands in the scene right now, not to mention ABR is legions more talented than AA.
i agree with half of this post. the bottom half.

Exactly, they're only saying what they play for. AA are just a bunch of douchebags with big egos. It's only a matter of time before they start embracing themselves as the second coming of Motely Crue and start promoting that on stage.

How can anyone truly expect a band to quit just because people think they're in it for the money? They're making a living doing what they love to do.

Some of you really love being dicks on here,and have zero positive comments on anything.
