Does this Band Suck? An Actual Exchange

posted by on September 22 at 12:53 PM

In an Audience During a Show

Person 1) Does this band suck?
Person 2) You mean the band thatís playing right now?

1) Yeah.
2) Why are you asking me? Theyíre right there, playing.

1) Itís too loud. I canít hear the singer. Iíve had three Beam and Cokes. And beer.
2) You suck if you canít come up with your own opinion.

1) I heard theyíre supposed to be good. All these people said theyíre great.
2) So what do you think?

1) They donít sound like Radiohead or Blondie at all.
2) Blondie?

1) Someone told me they sound like Radiohead and Blondie. I think they sound terrible. I paid for these tickets and they sound terrible. But maybe itís just the sound system, or theyíre having an off night.
2) I donít think they sound good either. I saw them the last time they played here, and they were terrible then too.

1) Iím still not sure.
2) Were your Beam and Cokes good?

1) Yeah.
2) So you can formulate an opinion.

1) Yeah but thatís a drink.
2) But it shows you have the power to formulate an opinion.

1) No, it shows I have the power to get intoxicated.
2) Well youíre the one who dragged me to this show. And it sucks.

1) I can formulate an opinion. Jack Johnson sucks.
2) Youíre right. What does that have to do with this show?

1) Nothing. But I know sucky music.
2) Then you should know this music sucks.

"I heard they're supposed to be good."

Famous words.

Classic. It is true, some people do not know they have the power to get intoxicated. They only have the power to like Jack Johnson.
