throwing in a few power chords does not make one "metal"

anyway I heard PT started out playing Pink Floyd covers so what do they know about metal?
Tool has crap to do with it. Tool may be a better band but that doesn't make PT "overdressed emos". Sorry.

I honestly feel Tool is massively overrated. I also think PT is a damn good band, I'm not too fond of the singer, but you don't get into a band like that because of the singer. Definitely not emo in any way, shape, or form.

How much emo do you listen to? Maybe you just haven't heard enough.

90% of teens have turned to pop and hip-hop.If you are part of the 10% that still listens to real music, copy and paste this message to somewhere seen. DONT LET ROCK DIE ! This is not meant to offend anyone.
Both quotes are from some chick's signature on another forum I frequent (though you'll most likely find the very same on various YouTube videos, anyway).

Terribly annoying to read. I never understood these comparison charts - you can't compare Swift to Skillet or T-Pain to Nickelback, they're all totally different things.

Not sure why I can't fathom the second quote... just can't. Where do people get off on the notion that 90% of the world's teenage population only listen to rap/hip-hop? Who makes these statistics?! Aaahh

Erm, sorry for the semi-rant. Responses here are super though, haha. :D

I think the funniest thing about that second quote is the implication that somehow in the past most teenagers didn't listen to pop music.
