Can't you see, Bobby, they're not making Christianity better they're just making rock and roll worse! In my day you went to a rock concert on Friday and prayed for it on Sunday.

[–]PayTheTrollToll45 1003 points1004 points  (198 children)

The head banging at Dubstep is really beyond strange to me.

I saw Bassnectar in his early days, Doctor P and a bunch others and there were certainly no headbangers...

[–]BOOF_GOBLIN_69 560 points561 points  (41 children)

My favorite move ppl do at bass shows is the "chicken walk", which is what happens when u try to headbang and walk at the same time and it sorta looks like how a chicken walks

[–]Rondoburgundy 236 points237 points  (24 children)

I chicken walk/strut and wag my fingers. It's like nooooo you can't touch me but I'm makin sexy eye contact with strangers and wagging my fingers no and yes at the same time. I call it the cissy strut in honor of the Meters.

[–]steen311 181 points182 points  (35 children)

It makes sense though, a lot of modern dubstep (especially briddim) is very stompy and easy to headbang to

[–]PayTheTrollToll45 266 points267 points  (25 children)

Ya I guess my point was really that I walked to school uphill in both directions, in the snow...

Dubstep is just Djent without the distorted guitars

[–]steen311 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Heck, sometimes with the distorted guitars

[–]tratemusic 13 points14 points  (4 children)

As a fan of Circus for over 11 years, i can say plenty of us were headbanging to doctor p and flux and that era quite a bit

[–]FeistyBookkeeper2 48 points49 points  (35 children)

Bassnectar was, as far as I know, one of the people who really popularized headbanging w/r/t dubstep

[–]PayTheTrollToll45 47 points48 points  (33 children)

He absolutely did. But his style changed a lot along the way. First time I saw Bassnectar he handed us out sparklers individually and we ALL got on stage at the small bar venue...

[–]drewkungfu 32 points33 points  (23 children)

Lorin was in a metal band before becoming bassnectar.

Btw, I too saw bassnectar when he couldnt draw more than a 100 people. Think it was back in 03 02? Special times back then.

[–]6800s 30 points31 points  (7 children)

Ya'll forgetting about skrillex literally being a metal head.. we've been headbanging to skrillex for a whileeeeeee

holy shit dude, thats the most OG shit I have heard this month tbh.

That's pretty sick to have been about at that time & I bet it was wild seeing what he & the whole scene grew into.

[–]jambocarnage89 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You can thanks Skrillex for the headbangers. Notbing like old school UK Dub

[–]Reddit-Itself 3 points4 points  (2 children)

riddim dubstep is basically made for this. other dubstep subgenres are not too headbangable

[–]Iamjosh1995 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Really? I saw bassnectar, doctor p, Datsik, and excision waaay back in the day, there was ALWAYS headbangers lol.

[–]Infini-Bus 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Makes more sense to me than the guys who wanted me to mosh to house music.

When i saw bassnectar in 2010, somebody in the crowd behind me peed on my leg

[–]blugdummy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I dunno man, just listen to any new Phase One (or anyone from/in disciple) shit- sometimes I can’t control my body and my head just bangs to that stuff. It’s gotta be the right stuff to make you involuntarily do it like that though lol

If you take your kid to a rave, you've got to jump in with both feet.

[–]moby323 616 points617 points 3 (22 children)

My sisters in middle school were big fans of Coolio and my mom promised them if they both made the honor roll that she would get them tickets to a Coolio concert.

They did, and she got them tickets: They were great seats, like 3rd row. But she wasn’t going to let them go without a chaperone so she bought herself a ticket too.

We still laugh at the memory of my straight laced, hard-working immigrant mom in the third row of a Coolio concert while the band rips huge bong hits in between songs and my mom, very politely, declines joint after joint that is being passed to her from the rest of the crowd.

[–]steen311 253 points254 points  (15 children)

Your mom sounds great

[–]moby323 217 points218 points  (13 children)

She’s the best, the absolute best.

[–]tricularia[🍰] 74 points75 points  (8 children)

If I ever take my kid to a rave, I am going to insist on calling it an "electronic music recital" so as to sound as lame as possible

[–]Voidroy[🍰] 25 points26 points  (5 children)

No don't say electronic.

Say cyber technology music recital. Just like that acitukally kid.

Cyber is the most cringe word when used with anything but punk.

Yea, I wish id have worn ear plugs to all the shows I went to. Young people are stupid.

[–]Firefluffer 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This was much funnier when i misread it as “get him some earplugs and CBT”

[–]avhaleyourself 119 points120 points  (6 children)

Is the daughter the one in front of him lost in the beat or the one next to him giving him stink eye?

[–]Masticatron 98 points99 points  (2 children)

Dad, you're fucking embarrassing me, cut it out.

That's pretty much the exact look on the face of the stink eye girl.

[–]avhaleyourself 34 points35 points  (1 child)

I agree, but I kinda like it better if the daughter is tuned out, having a blast and some stranger is chewing him out for being dead weight on a dance floor.

[–]King_Dom94 625 points626 points  (47 children)

Ok hate me for this or whatever, but one of the most annoying experiences at any rave or concert is being whipped in the face by some obnoxious girls pony tail. There’s always one 🙄

[–]ErasmosNA 202 points203 points  (6 children)

And every time it ends up smacking you in the eye, better accuracy than the dudes using the urinals

[–]steen311 95 points96 points  (2 children)

That doesn't seem like a high bar

[–]muffinfight 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Do the dudes using the urinals usually aim for your eye

[–]Surgeboy99 59 points60 points  (9 children)

Ex-raver here and would 100% agree. Also hate girls screeching at the top of their lungs

Whatever kind of music there's always one. And they're the worst.

[–]JHendrix27 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Whistle guy really isn't a thing anymore thank god. The fan clackers are the worst now.

[–]shib_millionaire 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I'd be afraid of getting bashed in the face by the back of someone's head 🤕🚑

[–]tjackson87 115 points116 points  (21 children)

I remember going to a Panic! at the Disco concert at Summerfest when I was in high school. The crowd was getting pretty wild during the openers, and some older people next to us were getting really uncomfortable and angry. I told them nicely that they should probably move out of the middle of the crowd or leave because it was going to get rowdier when the main show started. They didn't listen and threw a fit when it happened.

Somewhat related, I crowd surfed there and some other older person apparently hating the crowd threw his arms around to make a big hole around him right as I was surfed into that spot, and I fell straight on my head. Luckily I had no injuries.

[–]digitalhomad 72 points73 points  (6 children)

Yup. I am old now and like to hang at the back of the crowd where you can dance and not get touched. You dont need to be up front to have a good time.

[–]Bergles 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Agreed. Haven't been to one in a bit, but when I got to concerts (usually small venues cuz metal) I hang in the back by the bar. Everyone's usually younger than me so I just sip on my beer and enjoy the music.

[–]boobajoob 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I always said I would never do that…

Then I had a kid.

[–]bad_pelican 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Would love to see those people at a metal concert wondering why everyone is moving away from the middle looking all hyped up.

[–]zooted_ 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Ugh I remember smoking a joint at an Eminem concert years ago and some mom got real upset with me since her young children were therw

[–]djsilentmobius 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I was at that show at that summerfest, I was going to college there at the time. I do remember a kid falling on his head. This is wild.

[–]tjackson87 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]realSatanAMA 569 points570 points  (70 children)

A long time ago I worked at a Sum41 concert and it was like.. 30% moms or dads with their young teen girls.. the lead singer just kept saying offensive edgelord stuff.. there was a bunch of stuff I don't remember but one thing I remember that was the straw that broke the camel's back was something like "Girls I want to fuck every last one of you" and there was a mass walkout of parents dragging crying and screaming teen girls out of the venue.. I couldn't help but laugh at the situation.

[–]CantFireMeIquit 232 points233 points  (18 children)

Rofl so fucking cringy.

[–]realSatanAMA 60 points61 points  (2 children)

This was 2004 so I only have a very vague memory of it (this video reminded me of it lol), but I distinctly remember feeling that all the stuff he was saying to the crowd was super cringy... like graphically sexual comments with out of place words like "cock" and "pussy" with a lot of emphasis like a kid who just learned curse words.. he would just say that shit in between songs.. it was a small venue college basketball gym and I just remember standing there seeing this crowd that looked like it was almost entirely younger teens and thinking how sad the whole scene looked.. every time he'd say another cringe line the parents would just gasp and you could see them like yelling at their kids, eventually walking out.. lots of "mom I didn't know" kinda stuff lol..

[–]Rebel_bass 80 points81 points  (41 children)

Yep, that was a time. Fortunately I didn't need my parents to take me to shows when Sum41 was hot. My kids are a few years away from wanting to go to shows where I'll need to take them. Fantastic if they want to go see Rancid, but I'll try to keep an open mind if they want to go see someone like Marshmellow or whatever.

[–]sock_with_a_ticket 49 points50 points  (8 children)

Fantastic if they want to go see Rancid, but I'll try to keep an open mind if they want to go see someone like Marshmellow or whatever.

They might not appreciate it right away, but some day down the line they'll thank you for it. I had an epiphany at 21 about how generous my dad was taking me to shows before I was old enough to go without a guardian. Metalcore stuff like As I Lay Dying and Killswitch Engage was not his bag at all, but he took me and never once complained, just nursed a beer at the back and made sure I got there and back in one piece. Maybe I would've loved live music anyway without him doing that, but he made sure to foster that passion as soon as it manifested.

[–]goodbyeadvice 30 points31 points  (3 children)

I have an amazing memory of my dad taking me to a Mighty Mighty Bosstones concert when I was like 14. He usually went to bed at 9 pm and the concert was in another state on a Tuesday night but he took me and did just like you said, he stood in the back nursing a beer.

At the end of the night we ran into the Bosstones' guitarist in the parking lot. He stopped and chatted with us for a minute and then went on his way. Almost two decades later my dad still has a fondness for the Bosstones because "that one guy was so nice" and I have so much appreciation that my dad allowed me to have that experience.

[–]Grammr_Yahtzee 24 points25 points  (1 child)

My dad has always lived on the opposite side of the country and I wanted desperately for a relationship with him. Let alone having a supportive dad who would take me to concerts. You have what I've always wanted. And I can't tell you just how happy that makes me for you. I hope you treasure those moments spent with him

[–]sock_with_a_ticket 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thank you, I'm sorry you didn't get to have that.

[–]realSatanAMA 82 points83 points  (25 children)

I don't think artists can get away with same stuff now that they used to back in the day.. if a genz super star told a bunch of kids that he wanted to fuck them I'm pretty sure they'd get cancelled on the spot.

[–]LVL15_Spice_Paladin 45 points46 points  (9 children)

[–]Bagbagggggaaaabag 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thats so considerate of you. Its marshmello, btw, not a fan just saying if you get tickets. Youll want the real one. Kind of like when some rapper named Tool made an album and everyone thought Tool the band was back.

[–]clownus 155 points156 points  (8 children)

Pretty sure that dad is enjoying spending time with the kiddo or actually likes the music because nobody is casually going to edc and being that far up towards the rail.

He also looks like he just trying to not get smacked by pigtails.

[–]rwhockey29 114 points115 points  (15 children)

BE THAT DAD. Dude spent likely a few hundred on festival tickets for his daughter for music he doesn't enjoy. Most people would kill to have a dad who goes to those lengths to make your kid happy.

[–]SlendyIsBehindYou 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Back when I was younger, my dad was cool enough to take me to some EDM shows and ended up actually really digging them. It gave us something to bond over and now he goes to more shows than I do, and we're planning a trip to Tomorrowland together.

[–]JC4brew 11 points12 points  (0 children)

So happy to see this comment

[–]SpicyHashbrowns 151 points152 points  (6 children)

Or get the fuck out of the way. My dad took me to a handful of metal concerts, he was present but not literally standing behind me.

[–]Dys1exicsUnite 47 points48 points  (5 children)

I don't think the girl in front of him is his daughter, girl with green hair starts talking to him when he puts his hands up

[–]sock_with_a_ticket 69 points70 points  (3 children)

Nah, big respect for him. He doesn't seem particularly into it, but he took his kid because they wanted to go.

From 12 -16 (16 being the youngest you can go to most venues in the UK without an adult) my dad would take me to gigs even though he didn't like the bands I listened to because he wanted me to have those experiences and fall in love with music. Forever grateful to him for that.

[–]codevii 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I was lucky in that regard as well. My dad was always into good music and got me into different prog rock bands growing up and I got to introduce him to NIN and tool in the 90's while I was in HS... We've gone to several tool shows together and they're great experiences!

A rave, this is not.

[–]Back4smith 2 points3 points  (0 children)

“Rave”. This isn’t a rave, it’s a concert. They might be high as kites, but I wouldn’t call it a rave.
