TGA Army is a concept we came up with a few weeks ago, basically the idea is that if you find a site where TGA is getting trashed, post it in this forum, then other users can go to the site and either refute the comments or just add a bunch of comments to push the negative ones away. The Gaslight Anthem is an amazing band, and we need to make sure they get all the success they deserve, we don't want someone to not check them out because they saw a comment somewhere that said "Gaslight Anthem suck big hairy monkey cock" (yeah, that is a direct quote!)

So TGA Army... lets go!

So here are a few marching orders for the army:

1. Do not stoop to there level. We don't need to start name calling
2. One of the best tactics for dealing with annoying messages is just posting positive messages and ignoring the negative one
3. Sound intelligent, check your grammar.
4. While we are not an official representation of the band, it is important that we do not embarrass the band

no offense, but people are going to have their opinions, and getting e-attacked by a group of people who want to support the band probably won't change it.

I understand if they actually go on the band's myspace or other pages, but people are entitled to their opinions. plus, it's the internet, everyone has an opinion on the internet.

I do think it is important that we not "e-attack" anyone. In general I want most of the TGA Army things to be just pushing down bad posts. But at the same time if that post includes something you disagree with or feel strongly about feel free to address it (ie: I really hate Slipknot as you can clearly see in the YouTube posting)

thats almost like fascism

if someone is vocal about not liking them or something that theyve done, so be it. who are we to silence them?

I'm not sure the guys in the band would encourage that type of behaviour...

That's the way I see it. I've played in different bands and some people try to make it a point to tell me we suck. I congratulate them on having their own opinion.

all negative comments about the gaslight anthem will be met by the best comeback of all time:

'i know you are, but what are they?'

well, according to the NME, "TGA have the kind of hyper-passionate fans thatíll lynch you if you so much as insinuate that Brian Fallon might not actually be the second coming of Christ."

...or that people are starting to turn into absolute assholes, that can't accept that people don't buy into what they love.

Those people are worse.
