Bad Religion Slams Bring Me The Horizon Then Social Media War Errupts between them
Bad Religion guitarist Brian Baker blasted Bring Me The Horizon online last night after spotting a note from the band hanging backstage at a festival both bands were playing.
“THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT TO BE STOPPED EVER. THEY MAY NOT HAVE A PASS. THEY CAN ESCORT WHO THEY WANT WHERE THEY WANT WITH OR WITHOUT A PASS” a photo of the band posted backstage said.
Baker says he was going to stop the band each time he saw them to “tell them how much their band sucks”.
Oliver Sykes, the band’s frontman, was clearly pissed at Baker for his comments about his band and replied to him online:
“You should of, I could of asked you why you’ve been going before Christ and you are playing under us, you sorry old wrinkly bastard. P.s saw you a couple of times and you said nada. Willy Woofter.”
Apparently, BMTH drummer Matt Nicholls also saw the post and left a comment of his own, referring to Baker as a “dickhead”.
“I can’t imagine being as old as you are and still acting like a 14-year-old girl. Saw you at least ten times and you didn’t bat an eye lid. You got bigger things to worry about nowadays anyway, like ya pension, or cold weather. Dickhead.”
Bring Me The Horizon vocalist Oliver Sykes also chimed in:
“Yeah, we are not your enemy, winter is your enemy.”
Baker fired back with a scathing reply to the band about their poster backstage, referring to it as a “display of arrogance”.
“It seems you’ve missed the point entirely. The issue here is entitlement. My post was a comment on your collective delusion that working local crew at a thirty-band festival should be required to memorize your faces to spare you the indignity of breaking stride on the way to your backstage oasis or, even worse, the humiliation of carrying credentials.
“Your literal display of arrogance (and the hilariously unrecognized irony within it) was what I was sharing with my followers. I honestly don’t know if your music is bad or good — it’s not for old people.
“I meant that you suck as humans. Sorry for the confusion.”
