1. In the eyes the very newest members of any band's fanbase: any band after any album they release; that same band once they work hard and earn the respect of a large-scale audience by giving the world music various types of people can enjoy. "HOW DARE THEY BE SUCCESSFUL? THE SELFISHNESS OF IT ALL! I WANT THEM TO BE BANKRUPT AND MISERABLE AND COMPLETELY UNKNOWN, THAT WAY I CAN RECOMMEND THEM TO PEOPLE WHO TELL ME 'Nah, I'll pass.' !"

2. A nonsensical term slung about by high school students to describe bands they have no true interest in (only their t-shirts) after the band released an album said fans were not even born early enough to experience. see also: False aging/wisdom/experience in a teenaged body

3. A band that truly is only in the music industry for the money see also: Metallica/Slayer/Tool/Avenged Sevenfold

4. A fan who is truly only in a fanbase for the sheer trendiness.
STEVE: "My kid brother's really into Metallica."
GREG: "Really? That sounds rich! Hey Alex, what did you think of Death Magnetic?"
ALEX: "Oh my fucking God, don't even get me started on that bunch of sell out nerds with a clear opera fetish! Trust me man, I was at their very first show back in nineteen-eighty-whatever and take my word for it: they haven't made a good album since Ride the Lightning, which was WAY better on vinyl, by the way!"
GREG: "Um, Alex, you were born in 1996. Records are obsolete and no one even makes record players anymore."
ALEX: "What's you point, faggot?"
