I definitely remember Anders getting shit online for his dreads back when he first got them. At the time a lot of people were labelling them sellouts and the Jonathan Davis-esque dreadlocks only added to that shitstorm. Personally I thought the dreads suited Anders. As far as the band's dress sense during that time goes, it was often stupid but I always figured it was being done somewhat ironically. Especially the [Link]In Flames t-shirts and the shirts & ties. Anders did have some really weird clothing choices around the Come Clarity touring period though and obviously the hipster hamster look is lame AF.
