Some bands, (whether they're good or bad), simply have horrible fan bases... It's not always their fault, though of course, sometimes the artist is a bad influence and attracts the worst of fan for themselves.
During November. Ultimate Guitar readers set forth to nominate and vote for the worst music fan bases ever, and this is what they got. You may not agree with the entire list, but the people have spoken.
Do you agree with the results? Let us know what you think in the comments section, or on FaceBook...
Those Pitchfork reading, sandal wearing, vinyl listening, moustache growing, duck-face posing, indie-rock grooving, camel riding, ukelele strumming, poem writing hipsters aren't so bad... Until you see them in person...
Here they are posing for the camera because they think it's about to take a picture...
#09). NIRVANA FANS:
Hey, nice Nirvana hoodie. Looks pretty fresh, though... Were you alive when they were around? No, they didn't exist. Yes, they were a great band. No, you shouldn't wear the same hoodie every single bloody day.
#08). Beatles fans (who believe that everything after the 1970s is not music)
The Beatles are undoubtedly one of the greatest bands of all time, and set the template for almost every songwriting musician that followed. But, they are not the only artists worthy of existence, and there's plenty of music created since that rivals them. The Beatles were just four great musicians, not the very oxygen of Mother Earth. Seriously, take a walk or something.
#07). Black Veil Brides Fans
They're full of faux goths and annoying poses. And that's just the band; wait until you see their fan base!!! (Note: we have no idea if the people in this picture are fans, or if they are in the band. It’s hard to tell.)
#06). KORN Fans
Korn are great at what they do, but some of their fans are a little stuck in the 1990s. Guys, you gotta learn that rap metal has moved on. Hell, Korn have moved on too. They're not all bad - it's the fans of "Path of Totality" that you want to worry about.
#05). Random "Metal-core Band /Fan-Girls"
This subset of women do the rest of female music fans a disservice... It's that small group of fan girls who don't really understand metal, but have realised that dressing in skin-tight black pants, (or black tights), with cut-up rock t-shirts hosting MAJOR eye-catching cleavage gets some SERIOUS attention from burly male metal head dudes. Hopefully who are actually in a band.
#04). UG Comminity
#03) The Directioners.
One Direction are a bunch of totally useless c^#ts, and so are anyone who likes them. What else do you need to know?
#02). Insane Clown Posse Fans
While we think it sucks that ICP fans have been targeted by the FBI and classified as gang members, there's no doubt that anyone who is impressed by lyrics like "F--king magnets? How do they work?" is douche-tastic.
Justin Bieber fans don't just have soppy lightweight boring gutless weird loner tired small meek baby weird misguided shameful music tastes. Oh no. They also call themselves "Beliebers." Ugh.Nuff-said!
