As do others have the right to state what they want too. Your logic just went to poo. I have to agree though that it is perspective. I can get along with some of In Flames newer shit, and I honestly don't believe they sold out. In the interviews they've added that some people just don't know the songs. Their like WTF? Watch some of the newer youtube videos with the Jester Race medley. Half the people just stand around with no clue what to do. Newer Fans should be lead to the holy grail we may consider. Telling them they suck ass and using quite unethical words like "faggot" is not the correct way. Show them the music. I had a conversation with a guy at a Into Eternity concert, in which I would describe him as a "elitist prick". He stated he stated that CoB and IF were so much fucking sellouts, and that they should stop touring and shit. He stated he hated them. This guy was all about fucking stomping on music that had popular/similar sounds/techniques in music today. He went on to rip on a VERY technical death metal band that was playing there, in which the guy was growling like fuck, and the musicians performed very well. I would compare the band to the likes of Nile. Towards the end he went on to rip on the band because they had "breakdowns". There was no hardcore dancing, or anything similar to what that term is usually ment for. Whenever I asked him what his favorite In Flames Albums was, and stated mine was Whoracle. He stated that the Jester Race was the absolute best and started preaching to me like it was the fucking bible. Elitist in every respect. The lowest respect I give to people related to music would be those newer fans who will not give any of their older stuff a listen, simply because its old or "not popular". However I give the same respect to the elitist like I listed above who give no credit to bands that have simply changed or even become "more popular". Its bands like these that are basically gateways to the deeper, harder stuff that many of the older fans like. If you want a broken plane to fly, you do not smash it into the ground. You help fix it and get it flying.
