You sum them up, and so many other bands, beautifully. Too many bands are now reaching out to the "pseudo-intellectual teenagers and faggots". And yet oodles of praise come to these ill-concieved... I don't know what to call them. These bands continually promote themselves with an image that makes it seem intelligent to enjoy something disturbing and off-colored. This should be kvlt stuff for weirdos, not mainstream trash.
