    It’s hard growing up listening to emo/punk/alt/etc. Half the bands I grew up with are now accused of SA (some with underaged kids) like All Time Low, Panic at the Disco, Dance Gavin Dance, Good Charlotte, etc etc. And that’s just from memory.

    Ronnie Radke did that and then also came out as super homo/transphobic (Falling in Reverse, previous lead singer of Escape the Fate). Dude leaves transphobic comments on cis-ppl videos that even slightly mention his name in a negative light.

    I don’t see how people can separate the art from the artist; the artist’s worldview is put into the art. Also why give that person money?

      Well it was really easy until you told me about it !

      I mean how often do you really look up band member names? Spotify/Pandora/YouTube/Plex just return songs when you look up their names not their mugshot.

        Honestly I didn’t search for most of these, the information was kind of just placed on my lap through comments and videos that showed up on my daily internet usage. Now I do research on any alternative band before I start to listen now just because of how tainted the “genre” has become.

      Ronnie Radke has always been a piece of shit. He served time in prison after being involved in someone’s murder. And that was just the tip of the iceberg.

      What the fuck happened with Sum 41?!? I knew Whibley nearly drank himself to death like a decade ago but I hadn’t heard much else.

          I’m not doubting you, I’m just surprised. I didn’t immediately see anything in a brief search but I’m just a drunk and could be missing something.

            No, I’m doubting myself; my list was from memory but I couldn’t find anything on a quick search either

      I think you mean Falling in Reverse for Ronnie Radke, not Bring Me the Horizon, but I agree with everything you said.

      Didnt the allegations against All Time Low turn out to be unsubstantiated, or am I making that up?

        There wasn’t anything public at least, but they started a libel lawsuit. That was 2022 and no updates have happened since then, I can only assume the lawsuit was dropped or dismissed???

        Either way there’s pictures of them keeping like hundreds of bras on their bus at a time when the majority of their fanbase was underage. I found a quote in 2015 by ATL on USA Today where they said they had 2,500 bras at a time. Article also says “If Barakat’s microphone stand isn’t covered in bras by the end of the night, he feels as though he’s had a bad show”

        A user on twitter also said that at 21, Jack was signing fan’s breasts regardless of age and provided some photos.

        Just gives me the ick.
