    Okay, I don't want this to sound like I'm bashing anyones musical taste but does anyone like them?

    If so, why?




    I've not really given them a proper listen but I just keep hearing off people how aweful they are but some people appear to be really big fans.

    I can only guess that their fans are masochists. :p Basically they're just a really bad attempt at irony.

    I love them, but the best reason I can give as to why is because I'm into a lot bands like them at the moment. They aren't amazing, so if you take your music with a side of serious, they aren't for you. People who don't like them tend to be way too into the seriousness of music to enjoy it.

    I like them a lot, if only for the fact that they have a lot of fun with their music. Their live show is absolutely incredible (I caught a song at Warped Tour) and a lot of their lyrics are very humorous and tongue-in-cheek. Like Chris said, if you like your music to be all serious and whatnot, they're not for you. I think that's why I like them so much. They're just so damn fun.

    I like them because the beats are well done, the lyrics are funny (check out these from "Richman")

    I'm a run it like a marathon.
    Party 'til I'm 50,
    Wake up on my parent's lawn
    them cops still out to get me.
    And I ain't sippin' on a mixed drink, pinkie out, lips pink,
    Talkin' to a rich skank filled up like a sperm bank.
    I'm 'a go where I always go:
    Drinks are on the house,
    Whiskey's on the rocks while your sister's on my mouth.


    Shit gets you in the mood to party. I can definitely see why people don't like them. I think a few of their songs are just plain annoying (these ones sound like a really shitty Lil Jon). But they have a bunch of really catchy, head-nodding songs. In the songs that I like by them, they definitely mix the genres that I like and make it fun.

    Of course people will dismiss them as a joke, but it's clear they work hard on a lot of the beats... and they know who their fans are.

    What can I say? :lol:

    I think my friend best summarized them when he said they're like hip hop for scene kids. :lol:

    I mean, obviously, that's pretty subjective, but it's true, since most "scene kids" tend to like 3OH!3, even though some of their songs take the piss out of scene kids. :lol:

    Edit —
    I'm going to add another :lol: just because I used so many before I edited. :lol: Here's another: :lol:

    It's not that I try to take them seriously when obviously you aren't really supposed to, I just don't happen to like them.
