Top Ten Bands With Annoying Fanboys

From my own opinions and opinions shared around the music community.

The Top Ten

1 Dream Theater Dream Theater Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band from Boston, Massachusetts. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", only to change its name to Dream Theater later. more.

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

2 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Radiohead fanboys are also pretentious, idolizing Radiohead to a point of annoyance. Usually thinking they are the best band of all time. - cyanblue

3 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin was an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.

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! "

Would Someone Tell Me Why? - 12cc

Fans are stubborn as hell, won't accept you until you bow down and praise zeppelin as a deity. almost as bad as Beatles fans. almost

4 Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Pink Floyd was an English progressive rock band formed in 1965 in London, England. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitar), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters more.

Well, I like more than only The Dark Side Of The Moon. - Userguy44

And there are the kind of Pink Floyd fans who only listen to The Dark Side of The Moon, Animals, The Wall and Wish You Were Here. I prefer Obscured By Clouds, Ummagumma and the two post-Waters albums. - Alkadikce

Pink Floyd is a good band, don't get me wrong. But, Pink Floyd fans won't take any other opinions and think that they are the best band ever, and Dark Side is the best album of all time. - cyanblue

5 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture of Alternative more.

Better to be an annoying Linkin Park fan than a butthurt Dread Zeppelin fan.Led Zeppelin plagiarizes songs and are boring but Linkin Park is amazing.Whoever likes Led Zeppelin is either a 50 year old who is still stuck in the 60's and 70's or just some stupid "born in the wrong generation kid".-LitSavage

6 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

The Rev doesn't approve of this list

Extremely overrated metal band. - cyanblue

7 My Chemical Romance 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

Full of ignorant emos - Brobusky

I like bands :3 "I'm trash" #cutmyself #tumblr - cyanblue

8 Tool Tool Tool is an American progressive/alternative/post-metal band, that was formed in 1990. more.

Oh gosh. - Userguy44

Nothing comes even close. Try it yourself, pinch on ANY tool video on youtube and look at the comments.

Composed of singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jimi Hendrix, bassist and backing vocalist Noel Redding, and drummer Mitch Mitchell, the band was active until June 1969. During this time more.

Joe Satriani said: "I know exactly what Hendrix did, but I have NO IDEA how he thought of it."

Most revolutionary guitarist of all time. Yes.

Most skilled player? No, not by a long shot.

Best Guitarist Ever? No. - cyanblue

Why isn't this first? - Userguy44

Nirvana is great, but a lot of people seem to forget they had much better hits than Smells Like Teen Spirit. - Swellow

I agree with Swellow

I agree with @Swellow here - zxm

Juggalos man... - SevenTreeTool

23 Evanescence Evanescence 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

The fans are really into it too much but still I like this band - ParkerFang
