Anyways. I stumbled upon an interview with Andy where he talks about the bands success and their general work ethic and I can to realise something... I actually agreed with him on a lot of the points and liked his outlook and work ethic. The dudes, although pretty and definitely not making music i would listen to, are actually doing some honest work with a relatively good intention.
It's not shocking, it's not breaking borders but what it is doing is providing a bridge for younger listeners to find new and more dynamic music. Hell - when I was 11 I thought Bon Jovi was the shit - look how wrong I was but if it wasn't for them and their saccarine sweet pop rock I would have never found GnR, then Metallica then GWAR.
So Andy Six and Black Veil Brides - I apologise. For now.
