I would just like to clarify that, since I am the god of this universe, any band (or music-related-type-person) that you banish to the island will never be able to leave it alive. I killed off all of the magical wish-granting unicorns there years ago. Any and all attempts of escape are futile.

Now, with that out of the way, I have a new band to send to the slaughter....




Fall Out Boy. You cannot imagine my relief that I escaped high school before these guys became popular. Unfortunately, I have to put up with my still-in-high school neighbor who has posters of them all over her walls, but I'm sure that one day she will forgive me.
Dammit, Maverick! Why don't you play by the rules?!

Sorry, I can't hate a band of nerds named after a Simpsons character just because they are associated with a bunch of myspace douchebags who like them. They've got a ginger dude in a trucker hat and glasses FFS. There's no way he's ever been anything resembling emo! Put their fans and their manager and their record label on an island and then there's no need to hate them. People don't suck because they listen to Fall Out Boy. Fall Out Boy just happens to be listened to by people who suck. It's like hating the swastika. It's not the swastika's fall the Nazis liked it. Prior to them it was just a beautiful shiny star. Maybe Fall Out Boy is a beautiful shiny star.

The Sex Pistols.  I don't care how good they're meant to be - they inspired all of the shitty pop-punk that has come along in the past 10 years. 

 :clap:

See, I get that an album-studio or live-wasn't the way to 'get' the Sex Pistols, and that the only way to get them was to see them live, in a club, whilst being jostled about proto-mosh style by people in shredded, spray-painted T-shirts and swastika armbands and spit upon by the band in between songs. I'm perfectly sympathetic to that. But it does make me think that, once historical reassesment comes in, they're doomed to fade into more of a odd curiosity than an actual musical inspiration-an 'important' band instead of an actively liked band. (If they haven't done so already...)

EDIT: And if anyone has evidence to the contrary, I'd be glad to see it.

I honestly don't think anyone ever liked the Sex Pistols. They were sort of like Paris Hilton. They were a big news story. In the future, people will assume Paris Hilton must have been popular with all the fuss about her. But she never was. The Sex Pistols shows happened too fast for anyone to have seen one after they'd heard about those crazy Sex Pistols shows. By the time you'd heard about them, they were gone.

That said, I don't think any of those pop-punk or new-punk fuckers listened to any real punk bands, least of all the Sex Pistols.

I mean, the Sex Pistols inspired music like Reagan inspired music. Reagan's solo albums sucked.

*big-ass picture of Coldplay*

I assume Anais is sharpening her axe and booking a plane ticket to Detroit at this very moment....

EDIT: Incidentally, I love how two of them are laughing uproariously and the other two look like they're smiling on the outside but dying on the inside.

I saw the end where the whiny little twat who fronts them was playing his new Christmas song or something, a song which seems to have the same melody as that "Nobody knows the troubles I seen" song.

Okay, Coldplay I can agree with. Send them to a cold, boring island.

The fact that their music sucks was also a factor in my decision.

Does Britney Spears count as a band?

I have always hated her "music" and every time I think I am rid of her she comes back.

And now Courtney is loading up her Glock and looking up directions to Harrington...
