I was once a deemed hater of Black Veil Brides. A band known of its wide-spread hate throughout the internet through many hate blogs, hate Facebook pages, and twitter pages. I have been scouring the internet this week to get into the science of what makes a Black Veil Brides hater tick or what fuels there fire. Its simple. Give them what they want. So I decided that reading many, many back logs of posts, tweets, and articles of supposed BVB hater “Bloggers”. What is fascinating to me is there lack of knowledge to back their claims and to start-up rumors about a band they hate so much about. I will give you examples through out the article you are reading(This article was a struggle to produce cause of the fact I want this one to be an epic one). I will say this though. I am proud to be in the BVB army and a apart of something so amazing that “Grinds some gears.” a little. Which makes me giggle cause they are hot and bothered cause BVB has so much success and all they have is computer to type on. Black Veil Brides is one of those bands either they love or hate. I am glad and grateful to have experienced both spectrum’s of being a BVB hater and now a huge BVB fan. But I am truly blessed the order it came in though. Hater before becoming the fan. Becoming the BVB’s fan was one of thee greatest things to ever happen to me. The moment when I let my guard down and let BVB’s music, message, and lyrics pour into my soul, my heart, my life, and let the healing process begin so I can continue living my life in a positive manner and gave me the strength to carry my life on is by far one of thee greatest feelings in the world. I can’t tell you the feeling it feels to let a band into your life especially one you just moments before betrayed with words and disagreed upon. I view this as purgatory karma. Karma at which it made me want to suffer in a beautiful paid back way as in life gave you melons here you get to fall in love with a band you hate(NOW FUCKING LOVE WITH ALL THE POTATOES IN THE WORLD) the weird and cool way how good karma works out that way. What a beautiful thing I have been blessed with. BVB’s music has helped me out so much throughout in 2013. This year has been a big year for me. It’s the first year I gave a “Second Chance” to band that I hated upon. It was the greatest feeling in the world to let BVB’s love through their music go through my heart. soul, and veins. Fuck hating. As you will continue to read on throughout my new article you will see why a band like Black Veil Brides needs all the support, love, and backing up they deserve.
Please note this article took me awhile to create in my head. The vortex of the information I researched for this article was just too great for me. I went on to as much hate blogs, Facebook pages, and twitter pages to better understand what comprises the thoughts, actions, and psychological matter behind a Black Veil Brides hater. It is although sad to read what one has to slander against Black Veil Brides and their hateful actions towards a band of positive manner and major success. It still concerns me at the health and well-being of these really active Black Veil Brides haters. I have found that constantly hating and having negative thoughts/attitudes towards something or in life in general can really badly affect ones health stress wise. Although I could careless about these haters it just concerns me. One can have their opinion about Black Veil Brides. Love them or hate them for all I care but haters are you okay. Laughing out loud.
In this article I am going to discuss what I have read and learned from these hater blogs, Facebook pages, and twitter pages. One thing is for certain these people want attention and are desperate for it. They get a rise from posting such a portentous tweets, status, posts, or whatever it is they do to get attention. It’s generally sad that I do what I do to get positive feedback they do it to get negative feedback. I write articles, reviews, and rants to express myself in a positive manner. They do theirs for negative manner and to express themselves in a negative way. What is sad though is psychologically they think they are doing it in a positive manner and doing a greater good for society plus doing a service for the world. When in reality its the exact opposite. It’s generally sad when someone is so hateful they have to get a personality and post slander on the internet. I hope I explained that into context for you.
Can a band give you an irreversible sexually transmitted disease. NO. On some of the Black Veil Brides hate Facebook pages I have read that Black Veil Brides music gives people AIDS(Auto-Immune Deficiency Syndrome) It was truly heartbreaking and really annoying to read something like that posted not on only one hate page but three separate hate pages on Facebook. AIDS is only given to someone who is infected with it. Music is not infected with AIDS. Good grief. Laughing my ass off. Use your noggin and think before you type is what I preach. It’s truly sad to see a beautiful band like Black Veil Brides get such slanderous remarks against them. I do agree there is bad music out their. I won’t name any names because I respect people as human beings. Plus it’s not cool at all to joke about AIDS. AIDS isn’t something someone should joke about. It’s a horrible disease one who gets it. My thoughts and prayers go out to anyone affected with the disease because it’s a death ridden disease I would not want to plague on to even not so on my closest enemies.
Black Veil Brides is NOT gay. All five of them are heterosexual individual meaning they prefer women and only women. Sandra Alva a former Black Veil Brides drummer is an openly gay human being. All of BVB support LGBT equal rights and marriage. I writing this article support all LGBT equal rights and marriage cause I have a few friends who are openly gay, lesbian, transgender, and bi. I am a closet bi myself. I got bullied as a child and throughout my school years with the term “Faggot” cause i wore nothing but black and band t-shirts to school. I have overcome my bullying. But It really pisses me off when I see derogatory terms thrown at BVB. I actually awhile ago on a grocery shopping trip experienced the “Emo Faggot” term to be said to me. I also got the all famous looks for just being myself and just wearing a BVB t-shirt out in public. I was proud wearing that shirt. It makes me feel awesome and grateful to be a part of something so great. I love the message BVB carry’s. But what was said to me in public really opened my eyes of the level of bullying Black Veil Brides gets on a daily influx. Its fucking disheartening to go through such a thing in public. It’s a cry shame that people can’t keep their opinions to themselves without hurting another individual. Bullying is never okay. Period. I hate bullying. I had to go through it all my life. I of course flip them off and walked away cause that is who I am. Made me think for a while about my time of being a former BVB hater and I never wanting to ever go back to being one ever again. BVB is my life now. To get called “Faggot”, “Emo-Fags”, “Emo-Faggots”, and all the amount of derogatory terms in the planet must get tiring on a day-to-day basis. My heart, vibes, and love goes out to the 5 individuals that comprise BVB who receive this amount of hate everyday. I am truly grateful and thankful that the BVB army steps up and tells BVB they are amazing, beautiful, cool, genuine, and bad ass people on a day-to-day basis because they need to be reminded everyday what their music does for us and how much it means to every single BVB army member. It’s truly great how the BVB army outweighs the haters. 🙂
I also have come across some conspiracy theories of these BVB haters. I have never had one of these ever when I was BVB hater. In fact I rarely said my opinion about BVB when I did hate them(NOW I FUCKING LOVE THEM). I just went on with my day as these extreme BVB haters should do. Its preposterous if you ask me. The conspiracy theories are Andy Six sings to auto tune, BVB rip off from other artists, and this one that made me go outside to scream and lol at the same time Andy sings just like that Justin Bieber guy and their music sounds so much like Nickleback. Okay to back up some shit here. BVB DOES NOT USE AUTO TUNE. Andy sings naturally to ROCK AND ROLL music not POP music and uses no programs whatsoever to tune his voice all edgy and out there. BVB writes their own music. I am tired of reading every where they ripped off Avenged Sevenfold and so and so. I tell these haters time and time again. Go purchase Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones deluxe edition and view the DVD of the documentary of the making of Wretched and Divine. Its one hundred percent REAL. One hundred percent not SCRIPTED. One hundred percent ALL THEIR OWN SONGS AND COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL. Go and read their lyric booklets in their you will read a music copyright from each musician of who composed what song and all their entertainment company information from agents, lawyers, etc. Which means they HAVE legitimately written everything ALL themselves with the right copyrights, measures, and legalities. By the way, Andy hates auto-tune he said it in an interview once. I heard him say it. Don’t get me started on the Nickleback and BVB argument. In my opinion BVB is way different musically than Nickleback. BVB has more anthemic stadium or intimate venue songs and pure rock and roll songs that one can have a good time and party too. Nickelback has bar worthy songs in my opinion and is not my personal cup of tea to begin with. Plus in my opinion BVB sounds a hell of a lot better than Nickleback. Have your opinions, I will respect yours. Those were mine, I hope you respect mine as well. Please respect them. Andy does not EVEN come close to singing just like Justin Beaver. Andy has his own signature, unique, angelic, soulful, beautiful, charismatic, and edgy singing voice. The beaver has his. I can listen to Black Veil Brides music all day and never get bored with listening to Andy’s voice, the dual guitars, kick ass drum beats, killer bass, and the guitar solos, bridges, breakdowns, etc. I listen to all their CD’s from WSTW(We Stitch These Wounds), STWOF(Set The World On Fire), and W&D:TSOFW(Wretched and Divine: The Story of the wild ones). I can hear the progression they have made individual that being said with Jinxx, Ashley, Jake, and Andy. CC progression from STWOF to W&D was as he said it best “Take it to the next level” progression. CC stepped in for Sandra Alva when she left the band during the changing period of WSTW to STWOF eras. Sandra went on to another band called Modern Day Escape( A killer band I would urge people to check out). With each member of BVB maturing individually and together musically with each record they produce is phenomenal and ground breaking. I loved hearing with each record their individual and together “Take it to the next level” feats. It’s just insane that people come up with conspiracy theories of a band that writes and records their own style of music for millions of people around the world. There’s Google to back your claims haters. But I guess “Lazy syndrome” gets the best of people enough that stupidity makes these stupid claims above. Stupidity kills.
Black Veil Brides haters do just about anything to get attention on the internet. I have come to that conclusion. They either will Photoshop something very horrid of the band of something horrific or write something so hurtful that it’s just too much. I also have come across biased journalist who have a professional job and get real paid money to write for a living when I am sitting here writing this and get diddly shit cause I do this out of the greater good of devotion and love out of my heart and soul I have for music and a band who I think deserves a “Standing Ovation” instead of getting boos at an award show cause BVB won an award for “Song of the year” which marked BVB the first ever band getting three Golden Gods in a row. Bands like BVB who have similar messages and lyrics deserve “Standing Ovations” instead of hatred on a daily basis. It’s just makes me scratch my head on how parents raise their kids now days. Do parents teach their kids to respect others even if they don’t like that individual whatsoever. People can co-exist with one another if people were not so cruel, deceitful, and malicious towards each other. It’s about time the metal community comes as a whole. We don’t have to go “I love you” to each other all the time. Like when was it okay for someone to hate someone else’s music choices because it was not their cup of tea. It’s not fucking okay. Bullying is not okay period. I don’t give a fuck if someone likes Justin Bieber, One Direction, Selena Gomez, or whoever the fuck it is they listen too. I don’t go up to them and say I hate the bands you listen to go die in a corner. That is wrong. Instead people should just ignore people who have different music tastes than other people do and go on with their day. Its simple. Just like I don’t get this shit at all and I experienced it at the BVB concert I went too. I get that if you are a dad and need to go and be their for your kid who wants to see BVB I get that. Go to the bar and have a good time in their instead of just being their and crossing your arms like a badass and half flipping off BVB. I caught three assholes doing this at the October 3rd Black Veil Brides and Bullet For My Valentine concert I went to at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, WA. I saw these three dudes being all macho and shit. If you don’t like why be their for a band you hate. Go to the bar and have some coffee or water. Go somewhere else besides being there with a hateful appearance. Thank you BVB for ruining these fuckers day cause you guys were doing what you loved doing and that was performing in front of people who truly cares about your music.
BVB haters its simple. Don’t listen to the music or pay attention to it if you don’t fucking like. Best advice I can give to you all. Go live positive lives and don’t be a negative Nancy on the internet. If you are respectful to us we will be respectful to you. Simple as potatoes their.
I am truly proud to be in the BVB army. I know all of us have our faults and shit. We are all not perfect. I am not perfect and never claim to be. It took me 6 days to comprise this article and gather the thoughts into context into a complete article. YOU all are worth it. YOU are amazing to me. YOU all mean so much to me. Every time I get feedback from one of my articles. I have to say this. I go freaking nuts and I cry happy tears cause being at 21 and finally finding my calling in life is blessing. I truly appreciate, love, am grateful, and take all the comments I get in gratitude and stride. YOU all are the world for me. I can’t wait to make this a career some day to kick some ass in the rock and roll journalism field because I am finding that great journalists are lack in this journalism field too as much as there is a lacking for rock and roll music in society. I hope to make it a live someday and make it so that people get excited about reading again the ones who hate reading. Thank YOU. I send nothing but my love and wishes to each and every one of you. I love you all.
Black Veil Brides music does so much for me the list can go on forever. BVB not only inspires me to better myself they also make me believe in myself too. I struggled with that all my life. I never believed that I could do things. But they have opened my eyes and inspired me with much perseverance that if I work my ass of enough my dreams can come true. I can’t wait to lead my own legacy and show people my excellent writing skills. Thank you BVB for being there when I needed someone the most. YOU five lovely individual are amazing, gifted, talented, and beautiful soled human beings. I love you Black Veil Brides so much more than I could scream.

Now the fun part has come to show you the sites, the blogs, the Facebook hate pages, and twitter pages I have come across or was betrayed by in the passed by:
http://www.theprp.com <—– the trolls
http://www.blabbermouth.com <—– the trolls
http://www.loudwire.com <—– the trolls
http://www. noisecreep.com <—- the trolls
The twitter hate pages
https://twitter.com/BVBsuckscock <—— Hasn’t tweeted or followed anything but really, really. Okay then. lol.
The BVB or miscellaneous hate blogs
http://ihatejulietsimms.tumblr.com/ <—– Towards a girlfriend of BVB. We are all human. Be a grown up. If you don’t like Juliet’s music. Don’t listen to it. Plain and simple. You don’t have to be an ass to someone cause of “Jealousy”. No need to hate someone.
http://cateyemetal.wordpress.com/2013/03/31/black-veil-brides-the-justin-bieber-of-metal/ <—– Not a way to go about calling BVB the “Justin Bieber” of metal. Not even close. Not a hater though. Just thought this was really stupid that I needed to share.
Last but not least the lovely Black Veil Brides Facebook hate pages:
Most of those BVB hate pages are inactive to mostly active. I believe the inactive ones come out when something like what happened at the Revolver Golden Gods 13′ happened which I fully back and support BVB on what they did or one of their favorite bands hates the band they hate. It sucks that they have to waste their lives away on a perilous meaningless page instead they could be doing something with their lives. Sad. Their you have it. Mariah’s “Potato Queen’s” TMZ article on everything BVB haters. Now eat some potatoes for me BVB army and have a good one. ❤
