    I know a lot of people hate them a lot, but I have to admit, they’re awesome. She’s amazingly hot. You can’t really see in this picture.
    Cassie is probably my favourite song, but the entire album is dope.

    Also, inb4 anyone complaining that they’re a Christian band.

    Artistic tastes have nothing to do with “elitism” and everything to do with personal opinion. It is of my opinion that this particular band sucks. It says nothing of Xian rock or emo grunge chick singers. All it says is that thsi particular one band failed to please my ears personally.

    You should never defend your tastes. Just enjoy them and damn the rest.

    Never heard of them. Smacks of manufactured band and rehearsed angst. I likes my disenchanted singers drug addicted and genuine. This chick looks like she went to music school and majored in rebelling against “society”. Upon reading their wiki I can say they are definitely manufactured. That bio is so fake it reads like a 15 year old cutter’s wet dream. I especially liked her ‘don’t fuck with me ‘tude’ when she talked about her Christianity (please stop referring to it as faith. Faith can pertain to any religion. It’s Christian faith. Thanks.). She posits the brain masher: if a… Read more »

    Stating your opinion is when you say for example, I don’t like this band. I think they’re bad.

    Elitism is when you go, Oh my god, they’re so bad, look at me and my exaggerated emotions about a band I heard just a few moments ago.

    I wasn’t defending them, I just pointed out how fucking cliched everyone is. Defining themselves by what they don’t like. Yeah right.

    I know half these guys since we’re both from the Austin/Temple area of Texas. I jammed with Pat, the bassist, who was really cool and not bad. The guitarists, Jared and Sameer, are average at best and have HUGE ego issues. James, their drummer, flat out sucks. It takes little talent on the drums to do what he does. Lastly, Lacey is an arrogant bitch who wants it her way or the highway. I saw them 4 times in Texas, mainly in Austin such as Red 7, Emo’s, or Stubb’s, and all were opening for better, lesser recognized, more talented… Read more »

I wasn’t contending their existance, just the pointlessness of them being there in the first place. But you getting defensive sort of grouped you with them on my read-through.

Some people seriously believe that by not liking something, it means they have good taste. That’s completely ridiculous. So many people literally define themselves by what they don’t like. It blows my mind how anyone could think that that has any meaning whatsoever. And when it comes to things like metal, and Christian bands, I’d rather jam a pencil in my eye than discuss it with anyone who thinks like… Read more »

    It’s a sound I haven’t hear 10 000 times before. For that I’ll tolerate the vocals. If any of you know of a band that’s the same, but better (there has to be), let me know.

    However you define taste, most people don’t have it. No matter who you are or what you like, chances are, most people think you have bad taste in (insert subject here).

    @dieAntagonista: That’s not elitism. That’s like saying people who don’t want to eat McDonald’s, for whatever reason, are elitist. It has nothing to do with being better than other people, and everything to do with your taste. Music is probably the most subjective of artistic experiences. Personally, I like my music to not be overproduced crap created to turn a profit like McDonald’s. Maybe it’s because I’m a musician.

    And I really only meant Cathy who immediately said she “hated” the band.

    Eh I checked out the clip, as well as a few others (many bands have bad clips once in a while) but I can’t get out of my head that it seems like they’re trying too hard (especially the lead singer) to be hard, or to represent the “misunderstood” angsty teen group… It’s one thing to have a new sound and new methods and to call yourself original, but I’ve heard this style of music, same type of lyrics before… When the guys purposely cake on eyeliner that thick, it tends to be a good indication that the band is… Read more »

Not her not liking the band, but exaggerating like that. Also, your perspective on ad hominem attacks are outdated.
