afterstasis;1502918 said:i find their music to be equally bad, but at least paramore doesn't ham it up.plus, i associate an annoying fanbase with paramore, but at least they're not an annoying AND cluelessly pretentious fanbase.

instantdeath999;1502931 said:Hm, I don't think I've ever actually talked to a pretentious Coheed and Cambria fan... well, one.
back_blows;1502992 said:Fair enough. I haven't delved into Tool a whole lot, but I was merely stating that a lot of the Tool fans I have met will bring up how intelligent and cryptic the lyrics are.
instantdeath999;1503009 said:I actually think they are usually well written, but very straight forward, and not the least bit difficult to figure out.Here's an example.http://www.metrolyrics.com/vicarious-lyrics-tool.htmlLike I said it's not a crack at the song... I love the way it's written.
instantdeath999;1503455 said:Afterstasis, I stand corrected on the pretentious Coheed fan. That 63rebham guy is great.
back_blows;1503473 said:Were you fortunate enough to read his comment in the "What is your favourite kind of dog?" thread? Its deleted now, but it was disgusting.
afterstasis;1503477 said:do tell. i have him on ignore.

Xaris3514;1506502 said:What if I've never found The Who as amazing as people seem to think?
instantdeath999;1508012 said:Well, each member was very top of the chain when they first emerged, Pete Townshend is often hailed as one of the greatest lyric writers of all time, Keith Moon had a completely different style of drumming, etc...As for John Entwistle, many of his basslines were downplayed in the mixes. He really shines live.Of course, there are plenty of reasons to not like them, I'm sure. I just haven't found many
