  1. Green Baron gave reputation to pen in MM2017 Final Four: Metallica vs. From Ashes To New   
    This is sad to read.

  5. Green Baron gave reputation to Vigo in MM2017 Final Four: Metallica vs. From Ashes To New   
    One of my favorite albums from the last few years is losing to a terrible rap metal group. I know they'd lose to Thrice anyway, but it's still disappointing they're losing this matchup. 
  6. Green Baron received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2017 Final Four: Metallica vs. From Ashes To New   
    Metallica, and it's not even close

    Metallica, and it's not even close
  8. Green Baron received reputation from breanna. in MM2017 Final Four: Thrice vs. I Prevail   
    Thrice and it's not even close
  9. Green Baron gave reputation to pen in MM2017 Final Eight: Alter Bridge vs. I Prevail   
    Jesus Christ, if this tournament ends with I Prevail vs. From Ashes To New I'm going to retire.
  10. Green Baron gave reputation to ChosenOne in MM2017 Round 4, Set 2: Dance Gavin Dance vs. Sick Puppies   
    Gavin can dance right on out of the tournament because Sick Puppies released their best album
  11. Green Baron gave reputation to American_Idiot in Fall Out Boy - Mania   
    Can't say I really like this one either, so I'm overall 0/3 on their songs released so far. "Champion" was alright, but the lyrics are so cliche to me. This has it's decent parts, but Patrick's high notes in this song are a turnoff for me and the chorus, while catchy, does not need to be so fast.
  12. Green Baron gave reputation to xeph in MM2017 Round 2, Set 8: Night Verses vs. From Ashes To New   
    Choose wisely. Choose bravely. Choose Night Verses!
  13. Green Baron gave reputation to pen in MM2017 Round 2, Set 7: Skillet vs. Holy White Hounds   
    Everyone who voted for Skillet will pay for their transgression.

    probably because they realized it's not going to be good
    (yeah, I didn't like Young and Menace - or Champion, for that matter, but I'd have to say that's the better of the two)
  15. Green Baron received reputation from pen in RIP Chester Bennington   
    Linkin Park is still an incredibly popular band amongst people my age and younger who are into rock, more so than any other band. A lot of people I know were raised with the band, grew up listening to a lot of their songs and were affected a lot by Chester's death, which is something I didn't notice with any of the other deaths. Yes, I was born when Hybrid Theory came out. I've noticed the Minutes to Midnight-era stuff is what people love as well, which makes sense because that album came out at a perfect time for us to listen to. They were still very much "our" band, even if we were on the younger end of the spectrum.
  16. Green Baron received reputation from Kalt in RIP Chester Bennington   
    Still can't believe both of them are dead... if you told me this four months ago, I never would have believed you
  17. Green Baron received reputation from Koldes in RIP Chester Bennington   
    This feels different for me because Chester was a voice of my generation. Whereas I still loved bands like Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots, they were very much clearly "90s" bands that belonged to Generation X, making most of their music before I was born. They were the elder statesmen of alternative rock that had already defined themselves as anthems for people who grew up in that timeframe. Linkin Park, as a 2000s band, was always one that fit in with my age group, perhaps the most popular rock band of the decade, and one who, as clichéd as it sounds, connected with people my age and younger. The people I talked to who like alt/rock music, and even some who wouldn't call it their favorite type of music, knew and respected their biggest hits. "In the End". "Numb". 552 million views for "Numb" on YouTube, one of the top five most viewed rock videos in history. I've said this before, but "Numb" was the first song I ever loved. I heard it in the April of 2004, when I was on a plane and I was bored and I listened to my dad's MP3 player. "Numb" was the one that I loved the most, and I played that damn song over and over again. The worst part was that I didn't remember the title of it, and it took me years to find out what that one magical song was. When I heard it again, I instantly knew that was the song. The first few seconds came back and I remembered, that was the song. They were the first band with screamed vocals that I enjoyed, and it played a role in changing my mind from me despising heavy music to me appreciating it. They were undoubtedly a gateway band, but their best songs still hold up today.
    When I was 12, I had a dream that Mike Shinoda had died, and it was on the news. It wasn't a nice feeling, but I got over it quickly. I'm reminded of that dream today because after it happened, I told myself, I won't have to worry about that for another 30 years. Someone once told me that you know you're getting old when the celebrities from your childhood start to die out. I just didn't expect it to happen this early.
