Bad Religion vs. Bring Me The HorizonFriday, July 8, 2016 9:29 AM PT / 44,254 views
After spotting what he deemed to be an arrogant Bring Me The Horizon flyer posted backstage at Resurrection Fest in Spain this week, Bad Religion guitarist (and former Minor Threat member) Brian Baker took to Instagram to share said flyer, which read: "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."
Captioning his photo of the flyer, Baker said, "I'm going to stop these people every time I see them today and tell them how much their band sucks." It didn't take long for Bring Me The Horizon to learn of Baker's post. BMTH frontman Oli Sykes soon commented:
"You should of, I could of asked you why you've been going before Christ and you are playing under us, you sorry old wrinkly bastard. P.s saw you a couple of times and you said nada. Willy Woofter."Bring Me The Horizon drummer Mat Nicholls quickly joined the fray:
"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."Sykes added, "Yeah we are not your enemy, winter is your enemy." Baker soon returned to respond:
"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."
