I don't understand people that hate Mumford. They are the worst type of people.
Mumford & Sons is the worst type of band

I've been listening to the album. They really aren't. It's good music, and to say otherwise is some hipster bullshit because they became mainstream.
I decided that I didn't like them well before they became mainstream or even before they were on the radio. They started getting a little internet buzz, I listened to the album, and thought it sucked. Nothing about the band comes across as sincere to me. All image.

Really? I believe (with good reason) that they come across with complete sincerity.

Care to explain?
It just always seems to me like they're playing dress up whenever I've seen videos of their performances. Their image seems to be their biggest concern.

I don't know why people take it so personally when I say I can't stand this band. I have plenty of friends who absolutely love them and it's not like I'm planning on ending our friendships because they like Mumford & Sons and I can't stand them.

If you love this band, great. Nobody else's opinion should impact whether or not you enjoy something

What's a ''good'' type of band, in your opinion?

I don't actually believe they are the worst. We all remember Brokencyde. Read what I was quoting when I said that to see why I worded it that way

Don't care if you like the band or not, that's fine. What bothers me is that you question their sincerity because they "play dress up." You have an anberlin username, do you question their sincerity because of the way they dress? I've seen them three times (and love them), they certainly don't make a habit of wearing jeans and t-shirts all the time...
Anberlin don't write songs to fit a certain aesthetic or dress like they're touring the oregon trail. Having an image is fine. Wearing different clothes on stage than you would if you were going to Target is fine. It should be secondary though.

I don't care if you or anyone else likes the band. Go for it. Support them. They just seem like characters to me
