BAD RELIGION Guitarist Calls Out BRING ME THE HORIZON & BMTH Gets Butthurt

There was this sign backstage at Resurrection Fest with Bring Me The Horizon’s photo on it. It said “These people are not to be stopped ever. They may not have a pass. They can escort who they want where they want with or without a pass.”

This didn’t sit well with Bad Religion guitarist Brian Baker. He posted this photo on Instagram and said “I’m going to stop these people every time I see them today and tell them how much their band sucks.”

Of course BMTH took it to heart. The band responded:

Hahah I can’t imagine being as old as you are and still acting like a 14 year old girl. Saw you at least 10 times and you didn’t bat an eye lid. You got bigger things to worry about nowadays anyway, like ya pension, or cold weather. Dickhead.

Baker, a founding member of legendary band Minor Threat, put BMTH in their place:

It seems you’ve missed the point entirely. The issue here is entitlement. My post was a comment on your collective delusion that working local crew at a thirty band festival should be required to memorize your faces to spare you the indignity of breaking stride on the way to your backstage oasis or even worse, the humiliation of carrying credentials. Your literal display of arrogance (and the hilariously unrecognized irony within it) was what I was sharing with my followers. I honestly don’t know if your music is bad or good – it’s not for old people! I meant that you suck as humans. Sorry for the confusion.

Ouch!
