Soundgarden fans are WAY more aggro than your average Juggalo.
Man, right when I thought Smashing Pumpkins fans were the people who hated my music writing the most, along comes an army of Soundgarden fans that REALLY hate my writing. I wrote a piece about the band's pre-Lollapalooza show at The Vic gently dissing the latter period of their career -- and keep in mind I'm a fan of the ban myself -- and WHOA did these people come out of the woodwork to let me have it! In the end it was really amusing (and generated quite a healthy number of pageviews for Chicagoist) so I have no complants.
It's so funny when fans get so worked up over a single person's opinion. Does the fact I'm not excited about Soundgarden reuniting or Billy Corgan continuing to use the Smashing Pumpkins moniker really warrant someone getting angry? I think not.
