Don't blame the bands for having shitty asshole fans. I got my ass kicked at Periphery with forearms to the face for 2 and a half songs before I got out of the pit. Does that mean Periphery is bunch of assholes who don't giove a shit about their fans? Hell no. If you ever get a chance to be on a stage playing with a band, you'll realize that you can't see 10 feet from the stage. A lot of times bands can't see that shit on stage, and almost all the time, they aren't looking for it to either.
Hate the asshole fans, not the bands.
I never said it was the bands fault but when a hardcore band plays the fans "usaully" and in this case was a wanna be tough guy. Being in a pit and getting hit is gonna happen but being up front on the rail minding your own business then getting hit by some dude for no reason shouldnt happen,Im not blaming the band for that fan cause im sure they would not condone some dude hitting a women.Needless to say every show for every band has atleast one asshole fan in the crowd.With that being said i wanna know why converge was brought up in a thread that had nothing to do with them in the first place?
