yeah I understand I feel as if most people on this site especially would side with your opinion. I'm in a band too, but we're four different guys with four different beliefs; whether it's religion, race, politics, and a bunch of other stuff, it doesn't matter to us. It influences our lyrics but that's it. To me writing music and playing it with your friends is the best thing. I wouldn't let any of my beliefs stand in the way of that.
I agree with you completely. Fuck what they say, play for your fans. That's all that matters.
