There not emo.

BFMV rock and they deserve to be in the RNRHOF for obvious

Posted by Frodijr on Friday, 12.29.06 @ 10:57am

No, they are extremeley emo. also i saw iron maiden in new jersey last year, and they opened for them for reasons i have yet to figure out, and i, allong with about half the audience, were outside of the hall waiting for their set to end so we could hear the amazing iron maiden which truly deserve to be in this hall of fame

anybody who says bullet are emo, are pure wankers.. their vocals are simply "new age" .. which alot of dillusional tits class as emo.

Dont criticize and slag off a perfectly worthy hall of fame metal band, bullet rule.

Anyone who doesn't already know that emo is actually a type of hardcore punk that lasted for about the last half of the '80s and then died out should be neutered.

bullet deserves it, they are bringing back the riffs in metal. and for the record bullet is not emo. who ever says that should also have there balls cut off and/or ovaries ripped out!

there are one of the best and i hope 2 god they get in

They are incredible and definately deserve to be in the HOF. And whoever thinks BFMV is emo can probably count their IQ points on one hand. And for the record, why shouldn't they have emo bands in the hall of fame? They put a fricking rap group in this year.

Posted by Tyler on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 17:55pm

Hell yeah, BFMV are the only band I know which is willing to play how they like (e.g. Jason Jay James [the bassist] scream singing)

i think every band inducted in to the Hall should have at least on full popularity bar on at least 1 country itunes store (not necessarily US)

B4MV do not have one, btw

Posted by Liam on Thursday, 05.17.07 @ 11:52am

Liam, that's not necessarily true. If I'm not mistaken, the band Velvet Underground got inducted into the hall despite not doing well commercially. Mainly because they had a big influence on a lot of well-known artists today.

Posted by maplejet on Thursday, 05.17.07 @ 12:45pm

That's got to be the silliest criterion for induction I've ever seen.

personally, I don't think that artists should be discussed for the Hall even in hypotheticals until at least 15 years have passed. If this site was started 15 years ago, Mr. Big and EMF might be the most commented on bands.

Posted by Kit on Thursday, 05.17.07 @ 13:13pm

WTF is this a joke? I see in no way how this is considered. BFMV suck so bad and yes people they are emo, emo metal if it makes you feel better.
There are so many other bands that deserve to be in it than them. This band is at the very bottom for sure.

Posted by EMO IS GAY on Friday, 06.29.07 @ 12:42pm


But let's not get into that debate.I don't think they'll get it in.

Posted by Orion on Thursday, 08.9.07 @ 19:37pm

doesnt matter if they're emo or not

what they are is shit

dont't you DARE compare these shitters to Velvet Underground

Posted by liam on Wednesday, 08.29.07 @ 12:39pm

btw THATS the same Liam as the 'thom-yorke-elf' comment

not me.

but this is still a shit band.

Nothing new.
Nothing good.
No Potential influence that future bands couldn't get from the rest of metal

Posted by liam on Sunday, 09.9.07 @ 12:14pm

I will be surprised if BHMV get into rock hall of fame, and deeply disapointed. Their fans are just angsty teens and girls who think they're hot. They have no rhythm, and bands like Rosetta and Latitudes desrve to go into the rock hall of fame, because they are able to craft epic songs that are both hair raising and soothing. And i bet no one whos left a comment here has heard of them.

Posted by Andrew on Thursday, 11.29.07 @ 12:35pm

"And i bet no one whos left a comment here has heard of them."

You just lost a bet.

Hi, how I can send PM?

Posted by proslaviy on Monday, 09.15.08 @ 20:08pm

All this one deserves is, No.

Posted by Tyler on Thursday, 10.23.08 @ 08:53am

alright. im a huge fan of bfmv. and they kick ass. i would consider them screamo.. but who cares hhahaha. they rock ....extreme talent. so suck it. and im not an angsty teen.. most people would consider me a jock.. and i love this SHIT!

Posted by Jake on Tuesday, 11.4.08 @ 21:19pm

I love Bullet For My Valentine, but I don't think rock & roll is realy their kind of music. And besides: They are not emo.

Posted by a certain someone on Tuesday, 02.10.09 @ 08:12am

No, they're just emotional hardcore.

Posted by S.R on Wednesday, 03.18.09 @ 16:24pm

NOT EMO first of all. They're the New Wave of British Heavy Metal! so the have some emotional songs, big deal, its called a ballad, power ballad or metal ballad. Metallica had "The Unforgiven" and "Nothing Else Matters" and those were emotional. Definitely a great band and one of my favorites. True that 80% of they're fans are under 30, but i know plenty of people over 30 that like them. Plus what does it matter how old they're fanbase is? most of Slayer's or Anthrax's fanbase is older(over 39), so should we count them out? Metal influence is hard to do now, after the likes of Metallica, GnR, Crue, Slayer etc. but if they have longevity they will get in

Posted by Brandon on Tuesday, 04.14.09 @ 01:02am

emo sucks!
BFMV sucks!
Fall out Boy sucks!

mrxyz...now, you have to understand...if "akatsuki" doesn't like a band, that means they automatically "suck"...that's just the way it is, nothing can be done about it!!!

Oh, Brother...!!!!

Posted by Gitarzan on Friday, 05.8.09 @ 06:18am

Bullet is not emo.
So many doesn't know what emo is - . -

Whats So Emo about them?

Their songs that is about something emotional?

Only Fag bands like Gorgoroth doesnt have that, look at metallica, Pantera etc etc, their idols!
Don't tell me that some of their songs are anti-emotional : )

Posted by Howard on Wednesday, 06.10.09 @ 08:58am

"They're the New Wave of British Heavy Metal!"

I just feel like pulling out old quotes and no the NWoBHM was decades ago.

Posted by Dude Man on Thursday, 09.10.09 @ 14:35pm

Hey all! :D , I listening to Bullet For My Valentine for 3-4 Years,believe me, bullet is NOT emo,thare are METAL!!!! ...

........Bullet Is The Best!!!........

It's a ROCK and roll hall of fame, not EMO MAINSTREAM hall of fame

Posted by LOLUMAD on Tuesday, 10.13.09 @ 14:06pm

I really don't care for Bullet, but those who call the emo are just plain stupid. Emo started out as a type of hardcore punk(see Fugazi). What we have today is I guess what we can call a second wave of emo, but today's bands(My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Bot, etc.) hardly resemble the first generation emo.

Bullet are like A7x. Popular with emo crowds(which has more to say about their images), but not emo. Really the only mainstream metalcore band to avoid the emo tage is Killswitch Engage and that's because they're just too far out.

Posted by Dude Man on Tuesday, 10.13.09 @ 14:26pm

i dont no y ppl say their emo. some metal lyrics r a little emo, and do u call them emo? no! u just wanna piss alot of ppl off!

Posted by chris on Friday, 11.13.09 @ 16:15pm

wow thats all i can say to have to ppl who say bullet is emo, actaully it really cracks me up, not once have i heard in any of their lyrics about cutting themselves or crying in a corner, im a huge bullet fan im glad their around trying to bring somewhat of the 80's back their truly a amazing band whose totally underestimated and misclassified by critics who dont know good metal anymore i just got to say this band is gonna go far and all us bullet fans are gonna get the last laugh when their inducted and leave u haters with a big "told ya so"

Posted by jake on Thursday, 11.26.09 @ 16:59pm

Dear Jake

I'm sorry to inform you, but this will never happen. And stop using the word emo. Apparently you have no idea what emo is.

Posted by Liam on Thursday, 11.26.09 @ 18:08pm

Dear Liam

sorry that u cant read right cause if u read what i wrote you would clearly see that i wrote emo once and bet you havent even heard one song by BFMV and of course your trying to judge to be considered cool by your friends who probably have no good taste in music

Posted by jake on Saturday, 11.28.09 @ 17:13pm

I think they should be in the hall of fame cause they are letting Rap groups in

Posted by RICK on Wednesday, 04.14.10 @ 17:43pm

Once, I was sticking a BFMV poster in my room and my window was open because I wanted some fresh air. Then someone shouted BFMV are emo, then I threw some rocks at him, then punched his balls 9 times, and drowned him. Be careful of what you say about BFMV if you're with me, I'm really defensive to BFMV, in fact, I'm the most defensive person towards BFMV.

Posted by BFMV's number 1 fan on Saturday, 10.2.10 @ 10:42am

^thats whats up buddy, BFMV are definitely the pioneers of the movement of the new age of metal, they well be remembered among the greats 20 years down the road like metallica maidan and pantera

Posted by jake on Friday, 03.25.11 @ 12:56pm

My Bloody Valentine

Posted by Roy on Tuesday, 08.9.11 @ 22:30pm

I was wondering if they meant "My Bloody Valentine" too.
