I have always thought there is no way I will ever write about Blood On The Dance Floor but the actions they made last night made me think how bad example they show to the younger generation…or basically to anyone.
If you are following music related things on a daily base - unrelated to who your favourites are – you might have heard about the petition BOTDF started a few months back to make Kerrang! Magazine finally mention them in one (or more) of their issues. I still find this ridiculous. In my opinion a band have to earn to be on a magazine because of the work they are doing and the impact they`ve got on the writers and not because they are running a campaign like this to beg the magazine to write about them. WTF?
Then, Blood On The Dance Floor started to insult said magazine out of the blue via their official Twitter account last night and they felt hurt in the end and ended up blocking the magazine`s account. What was the point? This made me laugh on how desperately they are trying to seek some attention.
See how this all happened:
What`s the point to attack the magazine when they just post about their Instagram?
Standing up for yourself when no one has attacked you until you started attacking others? Haha nice one!
This behaviour is equal with the behaviour of a 13 years old fangirl of Justin Bieber who spends her days behind the computer and insults others who don`t share the same opinion then acts like she is the aggrieved party of the “conversation” when clearly not (based on real experiences).
A band with a big fan base of young people – no matter how rock ‘n’ roll and badass you`re trying to be - should not act like this. Especially if they are grown up professionals and would like to be treated exactly like that. If a band makes an example as this one, the naïve suggestible teenage fans will think it`s normal to be vulgar, start fights and bully others via the internet or even in real life. It`s everything but acceptable.
Blood On The Dance Floor really should back off, think and learn from the negative criticism sometimes instead of constantly attacking everything and everyone. There is a good reason they are not in the magazine and they won`t be in it until they don`t realize that (hint: the thing called ‘music’).
This is only my opinion based on the impression the band made on me. I am not here to defend Kerrang! (they did that pretty well themselves) or attack the band. I simply share my thoughts on certain things because this is what a blog is for whether it`s positive or negative. Clearly I am not a fan of them and don`t understand how could they even get a record deal…but whatever, that is a different topic.
If you`ve got thoughts on this, please feel free to comment. I`m back to write about myself and (in my opinion) quality music.
