    Now that's going too far... :mad:

    When it gets to the point that they look like a BOY BAND I just might not like their music so much anymore.

    Well, I guess it depends on the kind of music they were making. :erk:

    i dont really know. i liked them before i saw them, so i think id still like them, but be surprised as hell b/c they dont sound like theyd look like that. i know id like them, i might just refrain from ever going to see them live.

    This question is nullified by another. Would a band that concerned with image be as concerned with making good music? Can U find an example lol.

    But if they sounded like Opeth, I would listen to them just as much.

    edit - Is sounded a word?

    lol, who are these morons?

    I dont think it would effect my listening of them. But i think the look the guys have now, fit the music perfectly. Layed back-like-long hair- bell bottoms. I know many people who looked into Opeth because of the blackwater park promo shots.

    why wouldn't they? i think growing your hair, wearing black clothes, etc... is somehow being concerned with image as much as a boyband... so yeah...

    Even for a hypothethical this is very unlikely. It simply wouldn't be the case. Opeth's music is music that sells another image. Forests, long hair, sunnies and 70's flared pants are all on the agenda, but Opeth's music in no way screams 'modern, trendy and fashionable'.

    Even for a hypothethical, it's just very null, void and... useless.

    People don't even care if you're fat as long as you're in a metal band.

    I would still like them...I never see what a band looks like until I'm already into their music, so I would be kind of surprised but I would already like the music enough not to care if they looked like douchebags.
