Nothing in particular, just people feeling the need to chime in on every band/subject/show just to shit all over what other people like.

Probably shouldn't have posted this, just irritated today. Oh well.

I really don't myself. As for the people who chime in on every topic weather they like the band or not. YES! that is extremely annoying. If I don't like a band on here I don't purposely go on the thread and talk shit about them. If I have no intrest I don't bother saying nothing. But some people just wanna do that all the time because they think it makes them "cool". Well it doesn't, it just makes you an asshole.

I think people are under the impression that pointing out how a popular band sucks makes them knowledgable on what is actually good in metal.

I agree, if I have no interest I don't comment. When I do comment negatively on a band, it's because it's a band I should be interested in but I think they've done whatever it is wrong/badly. So I do have interest, I just don't think it turned out well. That's called debate/discussion and has ever right to go on.

If I weigh into a thread about a death metal band saying they suck, because I don't like death metal bands. That's different.

I don't really comment on things I don't like, unless it's a genre or band that I normally like, but I think has failed in this particular occasion. In that case, it's more noteworthy that it sucks. I wouldn't jump into a conversation about things I don't like because I'm not interested in them... because that may very well be (or might not be, but how could I even tell?) one of the cases of "it's not them, it's me".

"I hate when people say they like the same thing as me. Hey guys, I'm posting something about how I like Band A. I don't give a fucking shit if you also like them, just leave me alone. I hate people that compliment my tastes."

I turned it around for you, but its the same idea. If you are going to post your opinion (on something as subjective as music) in a public forum, then you open yourself up to comments. You presumably told us all that you like Band A because you expect other people to, but if everyone hates that band, then thats your own fault. Go sit in your closet by yourself and talk about how good that band is if you don't want input.

Only valid if it's from people who normally like the style Band A plays. If it's, to go back to my previous example, a death metal band, and people who don't like death metal say the band sucks, that's irrelevant and irritating.

Wow, I am in shock. We finally agree on something. :eyes: I don't go out of my way to participate in threads of no interest to me, most times I don't even click on them (unless I'm really really bored). But yeah, if you are posting something on a public forum, you open yourself up for a variety of opinions, positive or negative. I consider myself well rounded in all types of rock/metal music, so I have just as much right to bitch about say, the Goo Goo Dolls, as I would about Amon Amarth. Not that I have a complaint about either band at the moment, just using two ends of the spectrum as an example.

yeah of course you have the right to, but there's really no point in it in my opinion. if people want to complain about a band they hate so much, then that's all on them. i'd rather not waste my time saying how much i don't like a band.

i guess no point really, to talk to people with similar interest to the band. but in my opinion going to threads and commenting on bands you hate or just complaining about a band you hate in general is a waste of time.

The way I see it is just be honest. You either like a band, or you don't. However it's just wrong to go into a thread and go "these guys fucking suck they're a disgrace to music, they should be shot like dogs, etc...."

I agree with avoiding negativity, but I see it just the same way I see positivity.

yea i agree it's a waste of time in my opinion. haters should leave the thread to the people who actually like and want to talk about the band. i'm sure they would want the same with threads with bands they like. i'm sure everyone would throw a shit fit and think it's completely wrong if someone bashed on a band like Iron Maiden, Behemoth, Mastodon, etc, but they think it's perfectly okay to bash on a band like Lamb of God.

i don't know but i love positivity and get irritated with people who only have negative things to say.

That's the thing that bothers me. If you have reasons why you don't like a band you should at least try to explain them in a better way. But most of the time people say stupid shit like that and it just makes them come off as immature assholes.

The main reason I avoid bashing bands I don't like is becasue you never know what that band may truly mean to somebody else. No matter how much you may not like a band that particular artist could've been around for someone else here and helped them through some hard times, or even saved somebody's life by discovering them. So people need to think before they thoughtlessly bash a band. Just because they aren't shit to you, doesn't mean that they don't mean the world to another person.

Sort of agree, but also, the point of this was "why does everyone care about other people's music tastes", but why do you(those complaining) care what other people think about your music taste?
Honestly I'd hope most metalheads were thick skinned enough to not give a fuck about others opinions on how what they love sucks, considering this is how the general public views all sorts of extreme music.

I think its cool to share opinions, but when people go from showing their opinion to attacking the band and the poster, then I think it's really immature.

For example, I don't like Limp Bizkit, but that doesn't mean I hate you or the people in Limp Bizkit (except for Fred Durst)
