Fantastic. I love being metal.
From the little bit that I heard of Cancer Bats and Bring Me the Horizon, they weren't the worst bands ever... but I wouldn't miss them if they wound up dead.

I did but the gag was we were talking about how I was listening to Nickelback and how I would be removed from the site, so I put that I was listening to the Village People with the word "better?" after it to see if anyone would say something like, "On second thought, go back to Nickelback."

What's "badass" about The Used, MCR, Aiden or the other countless pop bands that have headlined this tour?
Although In Flames, Parkway Drive, Dragonforce and Unearth have all been on it. I guess you were refering to them?
P.S Dragonforce suck as much as my job.

there has been absolutely nothing badass about the TOC for many years. the only one i went to was in 06 when as i lay dying and the deftones played. oh plus atreyu BEFORE they sold out. now its like pure emo garbage. BMTH might be ok, but all they are gonne attract are scene kids...

BMTH are good musicians..word is they have a sh*tty live performance though..
TOC is becoming more "approachable" and appealing to the masses. before BMTH, no bands really stuck out enough to make me wanna go.
but I'll definitely be there.
don't hate on bands just because you don't like their sound.
if you're not attending, find another tour and stop bashing this one. they do what they can. back off.

i thinking of taking a 10 hour bus ride just to see BMTH. missed them last time and dont plan on mkaing that mistake again.
-- and to some of you, you'd think you might have a better use of ur time other then dissing a tour just because you dont like the bands. Us fans dont really need or want to hear it so dont waste your time saying s***, ok? most people don't really give a f*** bout what you have to say anyways.

Hey e-tak...
That's what the comments section is for. To discuss the article, whether you like it or not. If you dont give a f***... don't read the comments. In the same token, do you think us fans of real metal give a f*** whether or not you like these bands or that you're going to take a ridiculously long busride to see that show? Everyone has just as much right as anyone else to post or to enjoy(or hate) certain bands.

you do, otherwise you wouldnt have posted.

Besides the fact that most of these bands are either garbage or complete crap(both of which burn well, excellent suggestion Caveman) none of these bands are popular enough to draw the kinds of crowds this tour usually aims for. In Flames being one of the godfather bands of melodic death metal, i can see how that year drew in some crowds, and the A7x year must have been packed simply for the fact that every person with sh**y musical taste(there are alot of you out there) is all over that band's d***. But this just stinks of extra tickets for the bands to wipe their a$$ with.
