As I read through the common posts, tweets, forums, comments, and etc of the daily hate Black Veil Brides gets in the shit tons on every media site out their that features them news wise or interviews them. Plus on their official media sites as well. Its come to my attention that Black Veil Brides isn’t metal enough, their gay, they sound like such and such band, they are ladies(They are grown men, LOL), they are emo faggots, they are bad this and that, etc. The list goes on and on with the shitty non claimable excuses I have read about how “Gay”, “Not Metal” and “Sucky ass” BVB is.
What are my further thoughts on this situation. I did an informal article on classifying BVB in a metal group. YES. They are TYPE of metal. If you dumbass sheep would put your thinking caps on right and searched Google right then you would realize that BVB is a type of metal. END OF SUBJECT. Plus BVB classifies themselves as rock and roll to begin with. So why put bands in boxes. Just listen to the music and enjoy it. But I had to be frank with people in that post and actually break shit down to tell YOU the hater what genre or sub-genre BVB will be compiled into metal in. Here is a link to my informal classifying BVB as a metal group tumblr post: http://queenofpotatoland.tumblr.com/post/66265297515/black-veil-brides-a-tribute-to-a-band-i-once-hated-now
I am tired of people calling them faggots, emo faggots, what homo they are, etc. Derogatory insults are not pretty at all. BVB is straight for crying out loud. Even Ashley says in a few interviews that he worships women. Bullying is NOT okay. Bullying should end. Can I ask “The BVB haters” a question. What did BVB do to you? Nothing. Why constantly hate on something. If you don’t like it. Don’t waste your valuable precious life on hating. Its not good for your psyche, mental stature, nor health.
People keep bringing up what Andy’s now legendary speech at the Golden Gods Awards 13′. I back what BVB did 300 percent. Have your opinion about it but at least have their side of the story before you the hater has a one tracked mind about. I am so fucking glad I voted for “In The End” to be and won “Song of The Year” because for personal reasons and for the fact it was written for Andy’s late grandfather Urban Flanders(May he rest in peace and will never be forgotten). Andy also via his twitter apologized for the matter. Andy also posted a tumblr post about the situation. I bet NONE OF YOU HATERS have read it nor read his tweets stating the apologies. YOU the haters make Andy and the rest of his band out to be a villain’s of the music community(I know you do it to a lot more other bands too not just BVB) when they do the complete fucking opposite in helping thousands of people including myself more than lately with their inspirational key messages through their music and lyrics. So you can give me those “Oh Andy is an asshole, he acts like a dick.” No he isn’t a dick and nor is he an asshole. Lets do a hypothetical haters. Lets play a game. The “You put yourself in their shoes.” game. How would you feel to get massive amounts of hate on a daily basis day in and day out plus constantly getting critics who may or may not like what you have put out their either artwork wise, music, etc. You worked your ass off for hours, days, and years the project you created with your blood, sweat, and tears. You constantly get shit on with trolls, critics, haters, etc YOU the hater would be guarded too about what someone says about you on the internet or face to face interactions. People are entitled to their opinions. We live in America were the first amendment gives that right. But in the next paragraph I will explain where the first amendment doesn’t cover your ass haters in certain situations.
I have come across a few facebook anti- BVB hate pages. People are entitled do those pages however its come to my attention that even with the first amendment and their right to free speech will get their asses in trouble with the law. Pages telling Andy to kill himself, Andy is a Satanic Pedophile, and on some anti- BVB hate pages their are memes suggesting to kill BVB. With content like that your rights to free speech and to the first amendment are out the fucking door. People don’t realize that doing these such things are illegal as fuck and can be prosecuted in the court of law. Not to mention based on your states or countries anti-bullying or anti-cyber bullying laws what actions and consequences you can face. I took a street law class 3 fucking times in high school. I read my school book thoroughly. So get a life you anti facebook anti- bvb hate page admins. You can hate the band all the fuck your hearts desire it just overly pisses me off that these things AREN’T BEING HANDLED CORRECTLY AND NOT BEING PROPERLY PUNISHED. Have a hate page for all I fucking care. Waste your life on it. I have pity for you. But don’t have your hate page cross the line so much so that it becomes illegal and you have to go to court cause of it. DON’T BE A DUMBASS.
DO PEOPLE USE GOOGLE ANYMORE TO FACT CHECK. USE IT. IT WAS CREATED 15 YEARS AGO. USE IT. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE ILLITERATE TO USE IT. MY MOM AND DAD USE IT. THEY DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT COMPUTERS THAT MUCH. EVEN MY GRANDMA’S AND GRANDPA’S CAN USE GOOGLE. THE FUCK IS THIS SOCIETY COMING TOO. LAZY BRAIN SYNDROME. IF YOU ARE TOO LAZY TO GO TO GOOGLE HERE I HAVE DONE IT FOR YOU HATER. HERE YOU GO: http://www.google.com
If you don’t like it, don’t listen to it. Don’t go trolling to some fan support page or bands official page and paste your hate about a band their. Just gives me reason to call you a closet fan. The logic in that is fucked up and gives me headaches. Just what the fuck.
I know the BVB haters will NEVER stop and will never stop in letting us know about their opinions. But I am warning you permanent BVB haters if I see ANY content anywhere on the internet posted about BVB or any of their members that is illegal I will report your ass to the proper people. I WON”T tolerate any messages containing “Kill yourselves emo fags, Lets shoot BVB with a gun, any vile untrue content about the band members, and any negative actions towards the BVB army.”
Another thing I have come across lately is that people believe BVB’s music is satanic. However, I know that their lyrics make some religious references I want non fans to know that BVB is completely a secular band like I am completely secular amateur journalists. Secular meaning no religious partakes in any religious activities or matters.With this being said. BLACK VEIL BRIDES IS NOT A SATANIC BAND NOR DO THEY WORSHIP SATAN. LOL. BVB is fully a rock and roll band not a Jesus band. If you want a Jesus band listen to Underoath, Kutless, Anberlin, etc. Nothing wrong with Jesus bands its just that I don’t like the “Please Like us If you Love Jesus Bait and Switch motive” behind Jesus bands. I hate that.
I know we can’t live in a world that can’t accept us “Freaks” and the song “We Don’t Belong Here” is a true testament on how the worlds negative donkey asses have upon the people who want to help and change the world. The people who are different are the ones who get bullied the most in today’s society verses the normal folk. I know bullying awareness month has passed but It should be every month. Bullying is not okay. Stand up for someone that is getting picked on. Help people out. Their is no greater reward in the world than helping someone out without repay. “Paying it forward” is what its all about. I hope and wish bullying can be eradicated someday. I hope one day that some of you BVB haters give BVB a second chance like I did. When I gave BVB that second chance. My whole world changed. The world became more beautiful, my creativity went through the roof, and they gave me comfort in knowing everything is going to be okay. BVB helped me resurrect something that I thought I lost forever which YOU the reader and or hater is reading right now. BVB helped me resurface my love for writing again from the ashes. I can’t tell you the reader the feelings I am feeling for this band. BVB has given me hope, the oxygen to breathe again, the power to have my dreams come true some day that I will make happen( AYE magazines you better be looking for me in the future. 😉 ) So I urge you the hater to go into BVB’s disc catalog with an open mind listen to the lyrics, the guitar/bass bridges, hooks, solos, etc and the killer drum beats plus added on piano and orchestra workings done by Jinxx. (So please tell me their untalented fucks, NO) when they are clearly not. If you want proof they record THEIR own music purchase the deluxe edition of Wretched and Divine and watch the making of documentary plus read in all their lyric books in the back their is the legal music copyrights by ALL THE MEMBERS. So quit saying they are motley cure and kiss ripoffs when clearly those bands inspired and influenced BVB in their music and look(THEY didn’t ripoff their look nor plagiarize their look, If you look in comparison of Motley Crue circa 1985 to BVB circa STWOF(Set the World On Fire) era they have two totally different looks. KISS had and still has to this day the mass theatrics with the famous white and black make up. BVB has black warpaint and black signature face paintings suiting to their personal preferences. BVB took influences from KISS in theatrics and make-up styling s but NEVER stole KISS’s look nor theatrics. It just makes me laugh my ass off when people coin BVB as Kiss and Motley wannabe’s without doing their full GOOGLE research and basing their opinions off firsts impressions. Jeeze.) Plus Jinxx is a classically trained musician ranging from the piano to orchestrated music. Andy went to the school for Creative and Performing Arts. CC and Jake taught themselves how to play music since they were young kids.
So it comes to wrap this rant up. I hope these BVB haters do their research on www dot Google dot com. It enthralls me how stupid, stupider, stupidest the world has come to. So happy I fell in love with BVB’s music and their message. BVB is about follow your dreams, leading a legacy, being who you are, never giving in, never backing down, and always having a rock and roll good time. If you the hater see anything wrong with that then you are really mistaken. I find it cool to have learned so much from a band. BVB got myself out their again. I owe it to them for me to make my dreams come true and to thank them some day in person( Plus mention a little epic apology in the near far future…I can’t) I hope you haters realize that hating is a mere waste of time. You might be pissed off at me for telling you all off. Which I could careless. One way or the other. But seriously do you have shit to do in your lives instead of constantly spending your precious life on hating a band that didn’t do shit to you. Seriously get a hobby like knitting, skateboarding, graphic designing, writing, making music( don’t hear any of you BVB haters making any hits lately), anything what you set your hater mind to. Hating a band for a certain amount of time gets pretty monotonous.
All I can say is I am so happy that a band like Black Veil Brides exists on earth. Such five beautiful soul men they are. I hope to interview them someday. They are cool guys and down to earth. The put on killer live shows. They have me as a forever fan for life. I am happy and inspired knowing Jake Pitts is a fellow born Idahoan. If he came from Idaho, succeed, and make his dreams come true today. I know I can make my dreams come true too. YOU can make your dreams come true too.
NEVER GIVE IN….NEVER BACK DOWN….. RISE UP AND CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE…. CAUSE…TAKE JOY IN WHO YOU ARE…CAUSE WE KNOW OUR WINGS ARE FLAWED… BLACK VEIL BRIDES OUR OUR HERO’S BUT DON’T FORGET THEY ARE ONLY HUMAN.. LET THEM LIVE
