Why do people hate these guys again? I mean, they're not god's gift to rock, but they're certainly not the musical antichrist people think they are. - Nickelstickman

I don't know much about this band nor do I care to look into them considering all the crap they get. Only song I know from them is Savin Me, and I like that song, I'll admit. Don't shoot me. - Mcgillacuddy

They aren't my cup of tea either but Hinder or 3 Doors Down is worse. - BoredJeff02

I understand that band isn't getting back together anytime soon (Sorry for rubbing salt in the wound). The only reason why I can think of is why their hated is because this band is considered emo. Still though their a decent band Black Veil Brides being worse though. - BoredJeff02

Honestly, this is an emo band I can actually enjoy. Quite creative and need I say it, not a bad band at all. - cjWriter1997

They were one of the most hated bands of the 2000s. Back then, if you liked the band, people would make fun of you. It's sad that these days they are getting more appreciation than in their prime-time. The Black Parade is one of the best albums of the 2000s and their best work to date. - gothictomboy66

People freak out when I say I like My Chemical Romance because apparently they are emo. - mmarce445

I listen to Symphonic Metal, Technical Death Metal, some Black Metal, and Grindcore and I think that Slipknot are real metal.

They deserve their hate their logo is a ripoff of Overkill's logo and further more "The Hail to the King" album is a rip off of the "Black" album by Metallica. - BoredJeff02

There is no proof that A7X ripped of Overkill's logo. If two pictures would be same, then I'd say Overkill ripped off old pirates logos. - zxm
