What's a "Phase" band you may ask? Well these are bands that as a young kid or teenager that you thought was the greatest thing ever but then whenever you go back and listen to their music, you find yourself cringing at it and also at your past self questioning why you even liked the band in the first place. Don't worry most people tend to have at least 1 of these bands, however most bands that are phase bands tend to be Pop Punk or Boy Bands.
1 Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.
I used to love all there new pop stuff just 2 years ago. I eventually grew out of it, thank god. - MattAffterburner
Although I was never a Pop Punk kid or an Emo kid(Especially not the latter) some of these were phase bands. But then again certain bands were too whiny for me(Simple Plan, Falling In Reverse, etc) - DarkBoi-X
2 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.
Hopefully I won't ever grow out of My Chemical Romance or Linkin Park. That's why I listen to them regularly, but also only from time to time, so they don't wear out their value - Lanturnizer6
Believe it or not, I used to be emo. My phase was obsessed with this band and I only listened to the Black Parade. However it was on constant play on my Kindle for a while, before it was replaced. - MattAffterburner
I even have "phase" metal bands - I now wonder how I thought some metal bands were the greatest ever? But that was before I joined this site. - Metal_Treasure
This may be true for a lot of people, but I still really like this band and return to some of their songs every so often.

I don't think there would be much point in denying that they are a phase band. Where did you come across that word? It occurred to me that perhaps a reason why boy bands tend to be short lived would relate to them being "phase bands" (their original fan-base grows out of them and instead of gaining new ones a newer band eg 5 seconds of summer (which I don't consider a pop rock band but more just a boy band) tends to take their audience). I think girl groups could apply just as well. By the way I have never hated One Direction or boy/girl bands in general I am just noting this. PS. Noticing Metal Treasures comment this does not surprise me I think probably any band could be a phase band for somebody but of course this list is about the most common ones.
I have never been a fan of them anyways. - RadioHead03
