I Get So Much Crap For It!
Seriously... all my friends make fun of me for liking them. I've liked them for three years and it's always been the same. Apparently, they're 'emo' and 'total sell-outs' and 'immature.'
But I can't help it - I'm completely obssessed with them!! I have all theire albums, all their b-sides, and all their bootlegs. I can dance the entire 'Helena' video. I saw them in concert and it was one of the best nights of my life. I think they're inspiring and adorable and talented and so much more. And honestly, I couldn't care less about what other people think of them! I've never hid the fact that I like them, which some of my friends definitely do.
It breaks my heart that music has become such a hierarchal & elitist thing - and that some of us are looked down upon just because we have different tastes. It sucks. It makes people feel like they have to change themselves in order to be liked by the world, and that is definitely the lastlast thing we want.
