can someone briefly explain to me why this specific band recieves so much hate? they're no worse than many of the other bands in that genre (Like Moths to Flames, Arsonists Get All The Girls, Upon a Burning Body). Let's keep this objective
Ever seen them live? They've opened/supported at some shows I've been to in the LA area, and the way this guy carries himself on stage just screams douchebaggery. He struts the stage with a forced "tough guy" look, acts like an asshole to everybody, then seems to enjoy the negative response he gets. I don't think he understands the difference between an us-against-the-world mentality and an i'm-gonna-instigate-as-much-shit-as-i-can-and-then-pretend-like-everyone-is-out-to-get-me-for-no-reason mentality. One's an underdog, one's an asshole. Guess which one he is?
Also, the lyrics are pretty hilarious when you see the person who's bellowing them.
