Last year tons of fans came to see Falling In Reverse headlined Warped Tour and in 2011 their debut album, The Drug In You Is Me, charted at #19 on the US Billboard 200. Pretty impressive. I have given this band as much attention as I can, listening to old and new music, to try to understand why you all like them; but I’m still at a loss. So now I turn to you, my music loving community of Buzznet for some help.
I was very hesitant to write a “Tell Me Why” for Falling In Reverse because I know they have a very passionate fan base. However, maybe that loyal fan base can help me out and explain why they are so devoted.
Because honestly, Falling In Reverse; I don’t get it.
I can tell from the new music video Falling In Reverse posted yesterday fans are curious about their new sound and decision to incorporate hip-hop influences in their new music. For me, either way I am having a hard time seeing the attraction to the music old and new. I am confused as to why so many young fans – female fans, are drawn to it. To me it seems very aggressive in a way I can’t relate to and as a woman it’s offensive.
See the video below, I was shocked! You ladies do realize what he is saying here, right?
I know using sex isn’t a new idea in music, but I haven’t noticed any other bands with such vulgar content in their music being celebrated here on Buzznet. Perhaps I am having a hard time because I can usually get a grasp on why our community loves a band so much. I can typically find common ground and “get on your level” – but with this band I am at a loss. So I honestly need your help.
So help me. Maybe I am looking (and listening) at all of this in the wrong way. You’re all tuned into what is cool and why you love the music you love. So, tell me why I should like Falling In Reverse.
Do you like Falling In Reverse?
