Those same idiots would never rag on The Sex Pistols or The Ramones and they "sold out" too.

I KNOW! i wouldnt say they sold out but the ramones and sex pistols arent the most underground bands in the world

It seems that although Green Day has one of the largest fan bases, there are a ton of people that hate Green Day. Nobody hates The Who or The Rollingstones. I don't understand why people are pissy about Green Day. Even the people that just like rock, and don't care about punk or selling out, I just don't get it. Is it eyeliner? 

 

I hate the Stones.

Sold out as in "sold out" meaning not actually sold out, just signed to a major label. According to the real "punk rock" community selling out means signing to a label and getting wider recognition. That's why they're stupid.

yeah thats what i meant, selling out pretty much is letting the label or whoever take control of your shit, the pistols and ramones, as far as i know, never let that happen

The Stones are and always were sellouts. Such a bullshit excuse to hate on a band.

My brother hates on them for the stupidest reasons... He says they're "emo faggots" but I tell him it's not the appearance, it's how they sound, and really they sound great.

Exactly that - because they're famous

 

There will always be people who don't get it - that's fine, let them have their opinion

 

But if you feel it isn't a sound opinion (i.e. hate based on their appearance rather than their sound), then challenge it, don't let ignorance prevail over knowledge

It's just so people can feel better about themselves. Basic insecurity.

They want other people to think they're are as cool as possible so they choose to hate things that are considered popular and mainstream.
