ignorant retards often put this band down because of their image. just like i said in my definition of glam metal, i dont give a shit about a band's image, just the quality of the music itself. metalcore as a whole is pretty freakin cool to listen to- the breakdowns are sick and the riffs are cool. i dont care what oli sykes looks like or how huge his fanbase is or how retarded teenyboppers claim to only like the band solely for him. i just dont care. because image doesnt make good music. youre either a great musician with good looks or youre justin bieber. now you tell me who's better.
now that i think about it, the same is true for, oh say, bret michaels (awesome lead singer of poison- this is coming from a straight 17 year old guy btw) where girls who grew up with poison loved them only for how hot bret michaels was. same could apply for any other hair band.

No, we will never rest

Bring Me The Horizon rules!!
2. A majorly popular band from the UK. They don't suck by the way, I happen to like them, and I'm not even "scene". I don't like them just because a scene kid said they were cool, I like them because I found them on myspace, and really liked their sound. So, if you're hating on BMTH, just shut the hell up and go listen to whatever music you like.
2. wow, bring me the horizon is fucking mint.
However, as a band who have profited largely from mainstream and modern musical mediums and marketing techniques - the use of social networking sites, coverage from mainstream rock publications - and their contemporary teen look, they often come under fire from heavy metal purists who claim that they're a band liked by those who want to appear more metal than they really are (thus falling under the designation colliquially known as "scene kids"). Despite the band's best efforts, this image has stuck; indeed, their crowds are notorious for a by-and-large absence of moshing, often ignoring frontman Oli Sykes' encouragement to do so. Also, as they play a derivative of metalcore, they're associated with a very elitist sense of having "watered down" standard Death Metal.

Bring Me The Horizon are fast looking like one of the best hopes for the country's underground - playing extreme metalcore that's tighter then the average schoolgirl they back it up with lashings of style; from their bohemian glamcore image to their intense and energetic live-shows they play the part of the effete fashioncore elite and back it up with the kind of music that conspires to turn your hair grey and your blood to ice.
a band given shitty reviews when they deserve better,
and a band labeled to the max by people who should've actually given time to listen to the cd.
don't piss youself now. kthnx.
They're mostly know more for their image than the actual music which is a MASSIVE stereotype of those in a deathcore band. Around 81% of their fan base is composed of fan-girls who don't listen to the music and more about Oli Sykes, their 'singer'. And no-one know about anyone else in the band. He screams like shit and it will pierce your ear-drums if he ever dares pig squeal. Those poser fake scene sluts call him 'hot', but 92% oof that come from the hair.
Oh and they suck live. OLI USES VOCAL ENHANCERS.
MH 1: Yeah, so what bands do you like?
MH 2: Oh, I like Death, Morbid Angel. Y'know, old-school death metal.
*16-year-old scene girl comes from nowhere*
Scene: OMG YOU FORGOT ABOUT BRING ME THE HORIZON. THEY'RE THE MOST BESTEST BAND EVAR!!!!!!!! AND OLI IS SOOOOOOO HOT!!!!!!!
MH 1: Fuck off, they're shit.
Scene: OMG YOU JUST MOCKED THEM. YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON A LOT YOU FAKE METAL PEOPLE!!!
*Scene chick walks off*
*MH 2: God, I am so pissed off at this madness
MH 1: Let's end it. Tonight.
*Metalheads 1 & 2 find Oli Sykes asleep with his head in a garbage can and a banana peel in his mouth. Metalhead 1 pulls out a hair shaver*
*Four days later, Metalheads 1 & 2 are menacingly watching TV and a news report comes up*
TV Reporter: Today there have been a mass amount of scene kids crying on the streets and killing themselves, saying that their idol "isn't hot anymore".
*Picture of Oli Sykes bald is shown*
Random scene: My life is over. BMTH suck.
*Metalheads around the world rejoice as the last scene kids kills herself*

IMO, BMTH are a band that have progressed with time, and are now pretty good, that is if half the population who have heard the name tried listening to their actual songs and didn't troll or argue that they're shit. You're allowed your opinion, fine, but at least support it.
Pathetic little people such as scene girls need to confess their "love" for the band (primarily Oli), just so they can say it's true. Most of that fucking crowd don't like the band for their music, just their vocalist, which is shame.
lyk 0mfg Oli is soooo hawt! I "less than three" him! Bring Me The Horizon r liek the best band evar! For teh win!" (and various other internet speech purposely worded wrongly.)
Real BMTH fan who sees the band for the talent: Shut the fuck up you vacous whore. *Shoots scene girl*
