Let me start off by saying that this isn’t an article on things scene kids like, but rather an address to everyone “in the scene”. Brokencyde is the joke of the day. Everyone hates them, and yes, we know, the fact that they call themselves a band, and are allowed to make “music” is appalling.
BUT, Brokencyde is GENIUS. Their whole purpose is to create such an anti-fandom that it generates them ten times the amout of press and buzz as any other band that is ten thousand times as talented. I don’t think people have really caught on. This band is a legitimate joke. They are working the scene to their advantage. Every time you, Buddy Neilsen, Anthony Raneri, Jason Tate, or anyone else posts something on any site about Brokencyde, they are only enabling them further.
I wish I had thought of it sooner. I would have started a joke band, and been so awful and offensive that people could not do anything but talk incessantly about what a disgrace it was. With all of that coverage, Brokencyde is able to attract people, and somewhat of a reputation for at least being well known, and talked about EVERYWHERE, all the time. They’re making money just pissing people off, and getting a reaction that is actually kind of funny. I mean think about it, people, respected, well known musicians are taking time out of their lives to write about their utter disgust for what is, and has to be a joke.
If you want Brokencyde to legitimately go away, stop talking about them. This blog post is technically contradicting my beliefs, but only in hopes of provoking a movement. For Brokencyde to vanish, people need to forget about them, just like every other mediocre band that attempts to break through. News websites and message boards, delete all of the threads created about Brokencyde. Fans of music and culture, erase them from your memory.
If people continue to publiscize their hate, they are simply publicizing the band, and thus further allowing them to infiltrate into the music world. Unless people one hundred and ten percent block out, and ban the thought of Brokencyde from their lives, minds and vocabulary, we will all continue to be played.
You may not realize it, Scene, but thejoke is actually on you.
please re-blog this, and let’s get this started. There are so many talented, dedicated bands that deserve the attention wasted on brokencyde.
