Hey, beautiful! Today something happened to me, and it just struck some anger in me, so I’m just gonna rant here for a second. I’m sorry in advance if you guys don’t like rants, but I just need to cool off, and this is the best way to.
As you can see from the title, I’m gonna be talking about BVB Haters. Now, if you don’t know, BVB stands for Black Veil Brides. They’re a rock band, and one of my favourite bands.
I will just say something real quick before I get carried away: when you insult, hate or hurt something that I like, or even love, it stings like hell. And this goes for everything from music, art, your partner, your family, your friends, your favourite book, anything.
Think about what you’re going to say is going to be helpful, or just hurtful.
I get that not all people like rock music, but they don’t have to show your hate, which is completely meaningless but I’ll talk about that later. You don’t have to force your hatred and fucked up opinion on me. I didn’t hold you hostage and make you listen to BVB, did I?
I have many reasons why I like them, and I will be touching on that later, but if I ask you why you hate BVB you’re going to say one of the following, if not all:
- ‘I just don’t like them’
- ‘Their music is horrible’
- ‘They’re stupid’
- ‘People only like them for their looks’ (which isn’t even answering the question)
- ‘How could I like them?!’
I’ll go on to tell you 5 reasons why I like them. And these are from a long lost.
•Their lyrics speak to me on a spiritual level.
If you guys ever heard a Black Veil Brides song, you know that their lyrics are deep, and have an actual meaning. My favourite lyric of all time is actually from ‘Perfect Weapon’, ‘Like birds whose wings are broken, you live without direction’
•They stand up for us and themselves
I love the fact that they never let someone step over them. I am sure if you’re a BVB fan you have seen the countless videos of Andy calling out people at concerts. If you haven’t already seen them, then I think you would appreciate this playlist I made.
•They have a messed up sense of humour
I know that this one is a bit weird, but if you think about it, not a lot of people laugh at my jokes because they’re very controversial -I found a couple amazing people who have the same fucked up sense of humour as me. But back to topic; in countless interviews, they oh so slyly make inappropriate jokes, which I like to shout out. Anyways, you get it.
•They are dedicated to their music and fans
When they go on stage, you can see the emotion in their face; they’re living their dream while making us happy. Even by just looking at videos of meet and greets, you can see how happy and who sincere their words are. They do this for the BVB army, they do this for them, they do this for both out sanity.
•They have made a place for the outcasts
I know this seems all ‘Tumblr-y’ but it’s true. The BVB army has become my family; we support each other, we help each other through tough times, and most of all we work together to defend what we believe. It is one of the best fandoms that I’m in, and I hate calling it a fandom, because we’re not, we’re a family. We welcome all people who want to join the BVB army, even you!
Oh and just so you know I don’t have a favourite member, all of them are awesome. I hate choosing favourites, but if I had to, then…..I adore CC, and Andy is fucking awesome, but I love Jake, and Jinxx, and Ashley is so relatable, so I will choose C-and-ke-inxx-ley.
