    You call that music?

    **** me...

    Why don't you kids do the world a favour and educate yourselves when it comes to music. Mainstream is not necessarily good take Miley Cyrus, N Dubz and Jedward for example.
    you cannot throw FOB in with that lot. They have WRITTEN ten times the amount as that lot you listed. There best album was produced when they were not 'mainstream' fyi.

    when was the last time you heard fob on uk radio?

    I love the band. I'll post what I think after reading a few responses.
    I'm not exactly a fan of their music, but i do love a couple of their songs :awesome:

    but they're also absolutely terrible live :sadnod:

    i really like them, i dont know why they get a lot of stick.
    Guys that think there is nothing they dont know about music. They were successful and well known. thats not very cool according to them. its cooler to like the band nobody else has heard of until they get big and.. oh oh they arent cool anymore.

    They've gone really mainstream, bland, appealing to the typical hyper girly-teenage audience, quite generic, they aren't anything new. They don't produce this definitive sound that is instantly recognisable, they incorporated a **** load of pop into rock music, which also doesn't appeal very well to classic rock fans. This is further backed up by their dire inability to even play the goddamn instruments right live - plus they're only in it for the money; which doesn't go down too well with rock fans.
    who said anything about rock. FOB arent rock

    and how exactly are they in it for the money?

    I've never heard them on the radio because I don't own one.

    I hate the band, they're not rock, nor are they pop, they're pathetic wannabes. They have zero attitude and only attract a bunch of 10-14 year olds to their concerts.

    Hahaha first sentence is a cop out answer! seriously poor.

    agreed they are not rock. they are a form of pop. They do have an attitude. Just cause they are not aggressive rockers? They are more subtle than that if you bothered to listen to anything beyond dance dance.

    Its not that they attract girls. Its that guys who like them are discouraged to listen to them anywhere else than there room cause apparently its not cool to like FOB. They have to be the nations greatest guilty pleasure. Its guilty just cause i suppose it isnt socially acceptable. Plus pete wentz is hot.

    anyway the 10-14 year old girl comment has nothing to do with the initial question or FOB.

    Oh, missed the pathetic wannabee comment. not wannabees cause bands like you me at six model themselves on FOB. people wanna be like fob. fob dont wanna be like anyone else. as for pathetic - expand on that, seemed kind of flippant.

    I don't mind some of their songs- catchy jingles.

    Though, they're crap live (I've seem them)- they layer Stump's voice about 15 times in the album, so his single voice live is poor, at best.
