Well i have realized that it is more mainstream to HATE on Justin Bieber than to be a FAN of Justin Bieber.
Personally I gave up "hating" other music styles, as well as lifestyles in general, many years ago and Justin Bieber included. I realize that he makes bad music, looks like a fool and is a complete sell-out but why should I or any other person care? Is Justin Bieber really degrading your quality of life that much? Sure its a shame other musicians, that pour their soul into music get minimal recognition while Justin rakes in the millions. But would the world be better if Metal was more popular as Justin Bieber?
WE would lose our identity, we would lose what makes US unique, and the sheep would flock to metal and claim it as their own without truly feeling metal like we feel metal.
So yea Justin Bieber is pretty lame I know. But why not just make a couple jokes have a little laugh and brush it off and let bygones be bygones. We dont need to kill justin bieber and even if someone did another "artist" would just fill the void he left. After all this type of music has been consistently popular since the 70's: Disco 80's: Glam 90's: Boy Bands NM: Justin Beiber.
Let the sheep follow sheep and let us metalhead's remain the Goats. \m/
This time next year, 15 year olds will have forgotten about Justin Bieber and will say that One Direction is "killing music" and an "enemy of metal", with metal referring to Asking Alexandria and A Day To Remember. Biebs might even manage to enter the realm of "real music" if he continues to go in a more "mature" direction, such as his latest album.
It is actually bands like asking alexandria,a day to remember,avengede semenfold and shitknot who is actually the enemies of metal, and they are a threat to real metal because kids think its metal when its actually emo shit who tries to be metal.
I used to think that way, but kind of stopped giving a fuck. Those bands aren't metal in any way and are taking some fans who might otherwise get into metal, but there's still tons of people into metal and its in no risk of dying out. Plus, ADTR is awesome-entry level with a lot of dumb fans, but no fucks given, great music.
I agree,but it annoys me that people think metal is emo.
