I hate to hate Bullet For My Valentine

There’s nothing much to say, really.  I’m sure they’re a great band, very talented and very fresh.  But I don’t like them on principle. 

Too many kids like them and adore them.  Hate me for it, but I just can’t like this kind of band.  I love Metal music, but they’re TOO metal (if you know what I mean), it’s like they’re trying too hard and it doesn’t look natural like Trivium.

Avenged Sevenfold: They’re so damn popular that I can’t make force myself to like them that much.  Although I love the song “Almost Easy”, they’re another band that, to me, looked as if they’re trying too hard to be Metal and badass.  I saw them live last year.  It’s like they didn’t even try (to give it all).  They played like 1 hour, then that’ it, they’re done.  I saw Korn about 4-5 years ago (best show in my life, by the way), and there’s no competition: Korn was so much better live, the energies were like 20 times better.  I think the reason must be that Korn went pass the point of caring about their looks, eventhough I’m sure they kicked ass in their early days anyway.

And why is it that when a band starts to get more and more popular, I, more often than not, like them less and less? (This only applies to new bands, meaning bands after the Nu Metal era)

Now I understand how older people felt when I told them, more than 10 years ago, that I love Korn and Deftones.
