In my area, there is a kind of war between bands of different styles of music. It's basically between the Emo kids who churn out MTV pop-punk music, and everyone else. Last night there was a local show where some pretty cool bands were playing. It was also headlined by a local screamo band. They sat in the back and talked amongst themselves about how these other bands sucked so much, and they ruled and were going to be famous. You may like emo, and that's cool, but these other bands were soo much more talented than the emo band. One band in particular was getting pretty angry at the shouts from the emo guys in the back. So they said something to the effect of Yeah, you guys wear makeup so it looks like you're crying on stage (ex. My Chemical Romance)... And you're guys... But I guess that's cool. So the emo guys basically made them end their set and yelled at them in front of everyone for 20 minutes about how You can't do this to us, we're headlining this show! It almost escalated into violence after that. All the fans of the emo band were all drugged out on who knows what and ready to fight. So I left, so pissed that these guys cut off a really talented band, and they're all good friends of mine (the guitarist is a real prodigy, in my opinion). Have you ever encountered band wars like this on your local scene I guess this one has been escalating for a long time. There were defaced posters and alot of tough guy talk I guess.
