"What's that boy band on your computer?"

Postby limework » Thu Nov 01, 2012 10:49 am

A co-worker asked me this when she saw my desktop picture (the Cancer promo one with the four of them standing behind a 80s-looking stereo). Of course I laughed and said, "It's Showbread. You wouldn't understand".

In the thread, share stories of being made fun of/misunderstood/etc for being a Showbread fan. Obviously those people just don't get it, and never will, unless they were crazy like us.

My first showbread concert I wore a crappy homemade showbread shirt with there logo on it. A few people thought I was protesting. People frequently get surprised when they see something of mine with there logo on it. And then a lot of people I know that are slightly familier with them might ask me "arent they that screamo band?" But that's happened to everyone.

I have no stories because no one cares about showbread. not even enough to mistake them for a boy band.

I did have one guy tell me he liked my evil dead 2 showbread shirt, but he didn't know 1) what evil dead 2 is and 2) who showbread is. Whatever, hes a cute old man I work with.

People always ask me why I don't like eight notes and get upset when I wear my peace on earth shirt.

i used to have a homemade FOG era shirt (sharpie'd) that people would see and often ask why i hate music. it kinda fell apart and i wish i still had it.

with my "showbread is living" t-shirt, people would often read it out loud to me and ask what it meant and then i would have to explain the band's relationship with Come&Live and give my interpretation of what they mean by "living".

surprisingly, i haven't received any questions or remarks on my peace on earth shirt that i wear quite frequently around my ultra-conservative town.

At a high school dance i got the dj to play the jesus lizard from age of reptiles. Me and a friend danced like crazy. I think it made it to the first chorus before he changed the song. I'm sure everyone thought we were insane. True story :raw:

My grandfather always referred to them as "them queers" because they wore heavy makeup.
