EJ, you are correct, boybands should die, and it seems like i may have to do some culling of the Rambots herd soon, for i am not going to listen to that crap, but that is my opinion and i still say my opinion stays and its the only one that matters, so say Bye Bye Bye(couldn’t resist, i know i should be shot for that though) Hymson.

ej and riley youre both right…hymson: youre going down…riley: im gonna hold you to that ‘i should be shot’…on the other hand…if the band is a joke and its only purpose is to mock boybands…a parody band…count me in

The music isn’t too bad. Some of the videos aren’t that bad either (I liked the Larger Than Life video). I just hate the bands themselves.

Boyband eh? hmmmmm. i say we use our robots and attack them. It would be funny if Dean use “It” and chase the boybands away.

Actually its not there fault, its the people that write the songs for them. The people that write those music are going down.

Ya, their music isn’t the best, but all you guys know that you would get on stage, sing and dance around for the money they get and millions of girls constantly wanting your attention… Don’t try to deny it.

i deny it…im not a sell out and im certaintly not gonna sell out my principals or my manhood…ive never been shy or anything and love making scenes and stuff but i have could never bring myself to seriously be in a boy band…i might go on stage with some friends and make fun of boybands by pretending to be with one, but thats humor…

Mike, I agree with you. I would rather go on stage n make a fool outta myself than going on stage and pretend to sing & dance. If they atleast play and write their own music, then i’ll think about considering them as a boyband. Otherwise they are random people picked from the street by the record company to make money. Greedy Record Companies!! Napster all the way!!!

Remember they are adding this filter program to it this weekend so download as much mp3s as possible.

hmmm… how did i get into the Napster thing???

Well, we can have a true boy band. Get a couple of guitarists, a keyboarder, drummer (someone on my team would like that), and a head vocalist. I call vocalist!

it would be pretty hard for a keyboarder or drummer to dance around while they played…plus that would make it not a boy band cuz it goes against the ‘principals’ of boy bandism (principals is in quotes cuz its more of a lack there of)…boy band: group of overpayed, talentless boys who wear makeup and havent hit puberty, and all sing and dance around stage in a choreographed routine…no randomness or sponteneity…this means that there by definition cant be a lead singer. if you have a lead singer and the other people actually play music then it becomes a band that just happens to play bad music

oh…well thats acceptable i suppose…at least members of that type of band are their own people not someones puppets…though i think calling it a ‘real band’ is maybe pushing it…but to each theyre own

ok now for everyone that knows me, you know i’m a freak and do most things to get a rise out of people or just for kicks, but if i were to oin a boy band it would be a felony for me to touch those girls so why would i do it? and besides they do not write their own music, or play their own instrumemts, so i ask you this: how are they a “band”? to me they are puppets on really big strings, and yes N*SYNC’s label must have wanted to throw that in everyone’s faces, and i think that is hilarious, i wouldn’t mind the money for doing absolutly nothing but looking good, but even I have some self respect, yes I have some self-respect (hard to believe aint it)
