Chelsea Grin Duke It Out
2012-04-04 by andcas | 101 Comments
Deathcore band Chelsea Grin were allegedly involved in an
altercation at Greene Street Club in Greensboro, NC. The
crowd from The Sick Tour are claiming touring members
jumped a bouncer because he refused to sell them drugs.

The vocalist Alex Koehler tweeted an assailant was hitting
on their bus before the dispute. It's uncertain but some are
reporting an unprovoked attack. In either case the man has
opted to press charges over the recently publicized incident.

Allegedly the whole thing is on video which is why none of the band members were arrested. Also CG claims that their guitarist was the one who called the police in the first place. Not sure why they would do that if they were guilty of anything.

i never said anyone was trying to act "tough." i'm just tired of the whole "troo pop punk" scene acting like they're making this incredibly meaningful music when it's not even that different from the pop-rock you hear on the radio. i'm talking about bands like man overboard who start this whole DEFEND POP-PUNK campaign like they're the heir to the descendents or something, and then turn around and write sugary pop-rock with retarded lyrics like "do you hide all the stuffed animals the other boys bought for you?" the whole scene does a good job of hiding it, but they know full well that their target demographic is 17-year-old girls who just found out its not cool to like attack attack! anymore so they jump on to the next trend. there was a kid in my history 147 class last quarter who was blasting emmure on the first day of class, and by finals week he was wearing "defend pop-punk" shirts an man overboard and handguns merch. this wave of pop-punk is just the next "scene" trend. it's the opposite of punk. and i'm not going to lie, i do like a lot of bands that fall under the "scene" banner, i'm not trying to be some hep kat-esque elitest douchebag. i'm also not saying you have bad taste in music, i know you like a lot of good bands. but i'm just bothered by this whole DEFEND POP-PUNK movement when the band themselves know that they're pushing an image just as much as any pop band.

sorry for the massive tl;dr post, this has just been bugging me for awhile.

you don't even know that's what happened, it's all rumors at this point. and obviously a crime CAN be motivated by racism, i'm just saying that the whole concept of hate crimes is stupid because just because a white person commits a crime against a black person doesn't mean it had anything to do with their skin color.

dude that's just his side of the story. i'm not defending what may or may not have happened, and if what he's saying is accurate then that is reprehensible and alex koehler is a piece of shit, but unless you were there you can't know what really went down. for all we know this guy could have provoked them, the rational thing to do is not let your emotions get the best of you and not accuse people of something like it's fact.

dude come on, this has to be the most ridiculous analogy you could have possibly come up with. WWII has been extensively documented and researched by professional historians for nearly seven decades. this is a local incident you learned about on an amateur news website an hour ago, and the only proof you've dug up is a minute long video on facebook.

this isn't at all what i said. racism obviously exists, but it shouldn't be used as a crutch in situations where it isn't even a factor. the race card is played so often that most people wouldn't even know real racism if they saw it. it's like the boy who cried wolf, it's downright irresponsible and just creates more racism.

From what I've gathered (No idea if this has been said in the previous comments) the story is as follows: CG/Attila members asked Cowboy for acid. He got it for them, they refused to pay so he punched (presumably) Alex of CG. 10 to 1 ensues...

That said, if the story is true then CG/Attila definitely are shit heads but at the same time Cowboy shouldn't have thrown dat punch.

I don't know, even if what is being said is true, I don't think that gives anyone the right to call him a faggot and hate on the band. I'm no Chelsea Grin sweater but I just don't think it's necessary to abuse someone when the majority of people who are hating on Koehler weren't even slightly involved in the situation.
