.. Do you think they'd still be as successful?
they go around in tracksuits all the time.
But the question should be:
If successful metal bands who always dressed in the regulation metal clothes (long hair, black attire, tattoos, piercings, maybe some make-up) dressed like football scallies, would they be as successful?
Please don't bring Fred Durst into this.
but Fred Durst is literally the most perfect example.
He's probably one of those terrible '80s revivalists who thinks all Brits are posh loonies in "art-fag" bands.
They ARE football scallies you tit
*brushes down tie*
if these lads...
wrote heavy metal?
liked them... and A as well.
With friends like these..
Ninebar - read these boks
TRC - define cocky
..but there's something about how out-of-place everyone looks that gives this a certain charm. I grew up in a town full of people who looked like these bands - I'd have loved it if some of them started metal bands. Even ones as lame as these.

Heavy rock and / or metal has an image issue that might attract more musical listeners if it went beyond the fashion sense of the typical afficionado.
Kasabian fans would really love the riffs that Maiden and others provide but can't go there cos of the stigma. They're hard rock fans but fashion hold them back. Saddos.

I remember hearing my pussy middle class grind friends complaining having to share the lineup with 'tracksuit bands and their tracksuit fans'....they were mostly talking about these 2 vocalists thrash bands from the midlands

granted offset by the fast show car salesman on the left
so this isn't difficult to believe.
why do certain genres have uniforms/dress codes? it is silly that a vast majority of groups/artists in any genre adhere to that genre's typical dress code. what genre has the best/worst uniform? metal tends to produce the most entertaining results, and the unwashed/out of size/throw any shit from a thrift store together look of indie is probably the saddest
