|Worst live bands I have seen this year|
The unnecessary information in brackets is me trying to justify why I've endured these bands live.
(w/ with confidence & mayday parade)
Somehow even more annoying and horrific live than on their studio album. Holy fuck, their lead singer suffers from the boyband-syndrome, they sound terrible and empty (lack of bass and backtracked electronics, ugh) and I spent their entire set on my phone, hoping they'd notice. Hoping they won't get any more popular.
|2||Miss May I|
(w/ casey, being as an ocean & thy art is murder)
By no means terrible, this band is about as bland as it gets. Everything sounds 'okay', but they are so inoffensive and lack anything memorable, which might be even worse than being downright bad.
|3||Sleeping With Sirens|
(seen them three fucking times, ugh.. w/ mallory knox, state champs, this wild life etc.)
Yeah, christ, they are bad. They have two guitarists yet need the lead guitar backtracked? Kellin has some impressive vocal moments but for the most part he sounds like a whining goat. Also their crowds are a nightmare for anyone that doesn't think twenty one pilots' blurryface is better than ok computer.
(w/ the technicolors & the maine)
Their lead singer comes off as the biggest douchebag to have ever roamed the planet. That (disgustingly attractive) lad thinks everyone wants to fuck him and acts like it. While the band sounded fine, his stage presence ruined their entire set.
The Home Inside My Head
(w/ microwave + blood youth, as it is & neck deep)
I have a thing for generic, whiny pop punk. While real friends are by no means amazing, their music is enjoyable (for the most part) but man, their lead singer is unable to show up.. sober and not stoned out of his fucking mind. Besides that, their bassist is an annoying attention-seeking guy desperate for the crowd to sing about his 'bony knees'. Fuck off.
|the bands you were there to see intentionally are worse tbh|
|Why would you do this to yourself?|
|1st. Godspeed You Black Emperor (just the absolute worst, people just talked over them it was so boring)|
2nd. System of a Down (only saw them once they'd got fat)
3rd. Monster Magnet (set fire to a cardboard cut out of an electric guitar)
4th. Marilyn Manson (three times, consistently terrible)
5th. Down (no energy, Phil had got fat, prob spliffed out of his mind)
6th. Black Sabbath (they'd got fat long ago)
7th. Deftones (when they got fat, saw them in '97 and they were good)
|My worst was a complete accident;|
When I was way younger I used to go to a lot of local firework displays every year with my grandparents as a kind of family tradition. One time we went to a radio show hosted fireworks display which had been merged with a carnival, and they had a 'special guest' to appear live on stage; Lil' fucking Chris.
Horrible. I absolutely hated the music and was surrounded by a load of 12 year old pre-Justin Bieber fanatics screaming 'WE LOVE YOU CHRIS' every micro-second.
Only stuck around to humor the grandparents for one song and then I was done.
|Doof, saw SOAD too, but got shitty tickets, so the sound was distorted.|
JesperL, the 'justifying' bands didn't really justify anything (maybe Casey only)
|'2nd. System of a Down'|
Dude. System were fucking awesome live when I saw them a few years back.
|I don’t have any super shitty experiences this year besides local bands. |
|Aerisavion - System looked like they'd been on the road for a millenia, fat and tired, barely moved, going through the motions|
|That's a shame, although I must admit whenever I watch a live show of them from the last year or so Serj's vocals have been getting progressively worse. I know it's probably an age thing, but still sucks. |
|^ noticed that too, but they did sort of drag around, Serj looked like he straight up needed a chair to sit on, barely even moved his hands.|
|Real Friends always happens to open for the Wonder Years whenever I decide to go see TWY and I cannot fucking stand them, live or recorded. |
|I've seen Real Friends twice and they pretty much exclusively work as a pop-punk opening act. Pretty good live but they could've been any band cause I just come to crowdkill. |
|Slayer were particularly lifeless in 2015|
|Going to see Manson in February, I'm expecting it to be terrible but I'm going because it's Marilyn Manson and I want to see him before he dies.|
|The end of the Sleeping With Sirens one was absolutely perfect. God I can picture those hot topic spawns jamming TOP rn ewwwww|
|‘I'm going because it's Marilyn Manson and I want to see him before he dies.’|
The sad truth to that statement is painful.
|The guy's wearing so much toxic makeup, when he dies, his wrinkles are going to home the world's most dangerous Daisy roots.|
|If you're not enjoying live acts then you'e not drinking enough therefore you are doing the whole going to gigs thing wrong|
|I really enjoyed 4 when I saw them on that tour recently, I can kinda see the vocalist being off-putting but once they got into the swing of things they had an infectious energy. They also did this awesome glow in the dark drumming segment which really added some variety to the gig.|
Also saw the Mayday Parade tour but luckily enough instead of Waterparks the first support was All Get Out who ruled
|Godspeed You Black Emperor look criminally boring when i see vids of their live shows |
|yeah fair enough sinternet, the glow in the dark drumming bit was really cool. just wish they'd find a new vocalist lmao|
