I'm not saying we should like these 'artists', after all, I don't 'like' my baker for making the exact same types of bread as any other baker does. What I am saying is that we should be thankful for these miscreations. Why? Well, they keep the lackbrains away from the shows we want to go to. Most of their fans are teenage girls or boys with cellphones, selfie-sticks and little hearts painted on their cheeks. These fans, who are still too young to have a voice worth listening to, screech and cry during the entire concert. Some of them faint, are being carried to the first-aid tent and start to whine when they wake up because they missed a part of the gig.
If a metalhead faints, it's because he got either to drunk or recevied a firm boot in the face in the moshpit. Do we really want to cast out the stale pop-artists and have their fans infiltrate our world? I don't think so. Drop some of them in the front at a Conan show and they will immediately irritate the shit out of the entire audience. That is, if they survive. I really don't think a 13 year old girl could survive the brutality at a metal festival. She will implode, melt or suffer a heart attack.
Selfie-sticks are already one of the world's most idiotic inventions and taking them to a concert really proves the owner is an absolute selfish cunt. The only suited place for a selfie stick is right in the anus of the owner, preferably with the biggest part first. Furthermore, I think people should have a volume meter and when it's too loud or too high pitched, they should insert a sock in their mouth and put some duct-tape over it.
By they way, these fans aren't just irritating us. They irritate the organisers as well. They don't drink, they don't eat, they don't spend any extra money because all of it goes to agenda's, bags, drinking cups, placemats, stressballs and other useless crap which will end up at a flea market the next summer. They don't even buy CD's. They 'Spotify' their favourite artists. No wonder those concerts are incredibly expensive but hey, mom and dad will pay.
So leave them there, at those huge events. Some of them will come crawling back to real music when puberty is over and finally discover the immense variety of music made with blood, sweat, tears, heart and soul. Then, and only then, will they be welcomed into our elitist little club because let's face it, 'true' music fans are elitist sons of bitches, right? However, we don't seem to grow up to become dull adults with nothing else to do but to complain about they youth of today...
...well, maybe sometimes
