  • What's your favorite band gimmick?

    Every band's got one.

    The "over-the-top-I'm-better-than-God-and-Lemmy-combined" rocker

    The "Satan is great" metal band

    The "Our music is probably over your head" hipster/tool


    There are only a couple dozen of these gimmicks, period. Bands are just re-using them. So, what's your favorite?
