Of course we're annoying. How else would we rave about their boundless talent? - Songsta41
Always comment on Dream Theaters "genius" which just comes out as half musical jerk-off sessions of pretentiousness. Only for people who think music is a competition - cyanblue
Actually, a lot of Dream Theater fans are supportive.
As you can see, songsta41 is an example of fanboy - wprdhn

Please, don't get me wrong, I do love Led Zep but I hate how protective their fans are. What I mean is that someone will make a list of greatest bands and put let's say the Beatles, but the fans will come in and say "no it's not! It's Led Zeppelin! "

7 My Chemical Romance
My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.
I love how everyone assumes that when people listen to My Chemical Romance that they cut and are emo. First of all, I don't cut and I'm not emo. Most people are surprised I listen to bands. Second of all, my friends listen to them to and they are far from emo. Thirdly, stop assuming you know the person by the type of music they listen to. Just because people listen to the music, doesn't mean they fit into the stereotype everyone claims them to be. - music-is-life

Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.
Their fans think they're the best female-fronted rock/metal band without listening to other bands like Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation and Nightwish who also made a great impact in their genres.
Amy Lee is actually decent at singing, but she is not the best rock female. Sadly, a bit of her fanbase seem to overly worship her. - Swellow
