It’s easy to get discouraged these days, with seemingly every day bringing more news of a keyboard player being kicked out of the band, of someone trading in their Glamour Kills hoodie for a denim vest, or kids jizzing over the reunion of some crappy dadpunk band from 15 years ago.
But then there are glimpses of a brighter future, a future where the 90s are just another decade, the idea of releasing your music on dead formats as an ‘artistic statement’ is laughable, and nobody acts like listening to a given band’s music is an accomplishment… where no butt is in pain!
in b4 IMNs get buttmad about being called buttmad
TRIGGER WARNING: worship of rly crappy bands from the 90s
When I see stuff like this image (via Not So Posi After All, a must follow) and pages like More people like Emmure than they ever will like your shit death metal band who recognize that there is nothing more embarrassing than taking yourself and your opinions too seriously, I feel like there is hope… I believe we may be on the verge of an ANTI-BUTTHURT trend (srs). It took me years to realize that there are more important things than music, and that when you act like a butthurt fggt it doesn’t make people think ‘wow he rly knows what he is talking i want to hang out with him soooo bad,’ it just makes them think you are a butthurt fggt.
I know it seems mean to laugh at someone else’s anal pain, but it’s for their own good, trust me– a little tough love goes a long way
I believe this is because in the same way as the internet exposes kids to zillions of bands, it also shows them countless examples of butthurt fggts– sort of like ‘scared straight,’ only instead of illustrating the horrors of heroin addiction by visiting some AIDS-ridden drifter in the hospital, seeing the horrifyingly embarrassing consequences of butthurt is as simple as clicking through the Absolute Punk forums. Yes, there are still plenty of devastated rectums and there always will be, but it honestly makes me hopeful that at least some kids are making the right choice from day one: BUTTHURT, NOT EVEN ONCE!
Wat u think??? Is there really an anti-butthurt movement, or am I just a hopelessly naive idealist?? Will trolling musicfags be the next planking?? What was the miracle cure for YOUR butthurt?????
