    The Ramones,

    They can be dead and people still love them more than life itself.

    Nine Inch Nails has some pretty damn loyal fans. You have to be to when you wait 5 years for new material.

    KMFDM after 20 years has a pretty large fan base.

    I would say Modest Mouse, but hipsters are fickle and I think their fan base is constantly changing.
     
  10. You've got to be kidding me.

    This is the most pointless thread I have seen today.

    If your gonna post something so vague and stupid expect some flak from older members.

    I'm not so certain about Metallica fans after the debacle of St. Anger.

    MOK Bass, if you like Slipknot, then I would reccommend checking out the Locust, Daughters and Combatwoundedveteran. Also, Melt Banana.

    You may discover something you like.

    As for Metallica, I was a huge fan and Cliff was a bid influence on me in my younger days. When the "Black" album came out I could see were they were going and it depressed me. When Load came out I knew the Metallica I had rocked out to for all those years was dead. I think Metallica lost a lot of fans during their change to becoming Alternativica and now Nü-Metallica.
     
  15. Britney Spears has some pretty loyal fans.

    Also Tool fans............THEY ARE INSANE! If you make one negative comment about Tool they will kill you and then eat your bones.

    I agree Tool has some pretty hardcore fans. They could rule the world if they wanted to.

    maybe posting your favorite bands in your signature would free up some tb bandwidth. :cool: I don't stick with any bands thru the "bad times" this isn't like being a sports fan. when a band's new album sucks, it sucks. :p On a serious note, i'd have to say Uncle John's Jug Band has some of the most loyal fans ever. After 8 years off or so, we're getting amazing support for our upcoming 20th aniversary tour. :cool: :D
