View Full Version : SOMEBODY tell me why the fuck these guys are doing so well!!!

The Last Act of Defiance. They are a local band here in Tucson. They are full of themselves and their music is terrible. But people eat them up. They are ALWAYS getting huge shows (Reel Big Fish, Authority Zero, Saves the Day, RX Bandits, Gym Class Heroes, Plain White T's, Bayside, just to name a few) and it makes no sense whatsoever. I have inadvertantly seen them live about 3 times and I've yet to be impressed. Somebody tell me I'm not going crazy!

Uh, wow, how the fuck do they get shows? They sound pretty boring to me.

06-10-2007, 11:52 PM
MY band is better than them, and I don't even think too highly of MY band. And believe me, they are even worse live than they are in these recordings.

06-11-2007, 01:12 AM
They've got a quality that people already know in the music they listen to and respond to. It's not about who's better - don't be a tool and blindly go on believing that it is.

Oh, I didn't mean to have it come across like I think we deserve all this attention and they don't. I just meant to say that I don't think to highly of my own band and I think that they are worse than us. I just don't see the appeal (or talent) that these guys have.

Didn't like Pennyless Thoughts and Vinegar, but I could at least tolerate the other 3 if they had a different singer. I don't really like his singing. Bandwagon is their best song.

Aw, someone's jealous!

06-11-2007, 12:30 PM
Don't like them but I see why people like them.

06-11-2007, 01:55 PM
They sound pretty shit. They definitely aren't the first shit band to find a following and get gigs.

06-11-2007, 04:12 PM
Because people post threads about them on forums.

EDIT: Does Bandwagon remind anyone of a crappy Don't Drag Me Down by Social D?

06-11-2007, 04:26 PM
It kinda reminds me of that song Dain. But I can't see how posting this on a forum would get them success. They still suck.

06-11-2007, 04:32 PM
They do suck. I got sick of that Bandwagon song in one minute, and I tried listening to some of the others. They really do suck. Tell them to go listen to some Led Zeppelin, then they'll know real music.

06-11-2007, 04:42 PM
WHat I'm saying is even though Thomas is saying they suck, he's still giving them free promotion.

06-11-2007, 05:34 PM
Don't worry, it's the same everywhere. It's not a matter of who's better, but a matter of who can sell the most tickets.

But yeah, they do suck. A lot.

06-11-2007, 06:04 PM
hey guys while you're at it, check out my band http://myspace.com/dtoxrockers

Good work. I give it a 5/5.

06-13-2007, 07:19 PM
I actually went to go see them again last night. The vocals were actually clear. I was surprised. Of course, all the songs were very simple and they still didn't show any talent anywhere, but they got a bit better from the last time i saw them.

And Dain, if it's making a negative image for them here, is it really promotion?

06-13-2007, 07:38 PM
All publicity is good publicity?

06-13-2007, 07:40 PM
Exactly, just because your saying there bad doesn't mean that everyone you link them to is going to hate them. You will probably gain them a fan or two by putting the link here.

06-13-2007, 07:56 PM
Which is fine by me as long as they explain what exactly appeals to them. I didn't come to here to lower their fanbase, I just wanted to make sure I'm not crazy for not liking them.

06-13-2007, 08:15 PM
Bad Publicity FTW! [/whoringband]

06-19-2007, 02:14 PM
