Band Battle: All Time Low vs. Blood on the Dance Floor

This morning, as per usual, I read through my twitter timeline as I drank a cup of coffee to catch up on what I had missed during the night.  What I found was an onslaught of tweets trashing either All Time Low or Blood on the Dance Floor.  Being both confused and curious I did a little research to see what was going on.
Back in July, All Time Low did an interview discussing their band, music, and being on Warped Tour.
During the interview, Alex (lead singer) made a joke about BOTDF
Here's an image from Tumblr showing it:
When watching the video, it seems that the statement was meant as a joke.  However, one member of BOTDF did not see it that way and took to twitter with his response:
And in the blink of an eye, the internet shit storm began.
Alex soon responded to this statement with:
Followed by:
BOTDF then added:
Did the comment that Alex made a bit rude? Yeah, but if you know the way they goof around in interviews (and in general) it (again) seems as if he is joking.  Even if he was serious and said this out of pure meanness and hate, BOTDF's response was over the top, inappropriate, and uncalled for.  I understand that he was hurt and wanted to make a stand and show that he was mad and did not appreciate the comment that was made, but there were a lot of different ways he could have handled the situation.  Instead of saying something meaningful or intelligent that expressed his feelings, he fought what he saw as hate, with more hate.  Seeing as his band is constantly bombarded with insults, you would think he would be more careful with his words.
I personally feel that this response was just...too much.  It only made the situation 10x worse and started a battle of the fans.
What do you guys think about this situation? Let me know in the comments below!
Remember, this is my opinion and only an opinion!
Peace, Love, Music<3

  2. I love botdf very much I'm not a very big fan of all time low but both band just shouldn't have said anything.. I see where dahvies coming from yes he went over the top but he was drunk/hungover from jayys birthday last night. And a drunk mind can't say much intelligent stuff. Also with all the hate he gets he thought ATR was his friends they were all hanging out in warped they played smash bros and hung out on botdfs tour bus and then Dahvie hears this. I would Have flipped too. I went through This with a girl at school yes I over reacted but I was hurting. So I see where he's coming from. Personally I think maybe this could have happened on the phone or Something because a ton of butthurt fan girls are now fighting over what band is better and all. They just need to let the bands figure it out. -.- that is all!

  3. ATL was obviously joking about how much hate BotDF gets, and BotDF just completely overreacted. And considering that one of the members of BotDF is gay, its kind of an odd insult to call ATL fudge packers, also because ATL always jokes around about being gay so i wouldn't think it would even offend them.

  4. i just listened to tens seconds of fucking all time low and THEY SUCK. like how are they even on warped? i can understand why blood on the dance floor is because they do screamo but all time low reminds me of a fucked up big time rush band. so i don't give a living shit about them. i am a blood on the dance floor fan forever. and no it was not 'to much' you dumb-ass's they get HATE ALL THE FUCKING TIME. and leave jayy out of it okay? or i'll kill you. because theirs nothing WRONG with being gay. you have no right to say anything about it.

    2. Lol really cause Big time Rush actually copies off them.. maybe a few songs off their latest album sounds a bit more pop-ish but whatever they tried a new sound. and if you knew about the band you'd know they joke like that a lot.. most people can take a joke. Alex even apoligized. BOTDF just made some comeback that sounded like it came from Jessi Slaughter.

    4. wow dude... ATL I am pretty sure (sorry if I am wrong) have been at warped a lot longer then BOTDF have. and All Time Low joke around all the time. And if Dahvie was a true friend he would not have made gay comments, if you're close friend is gay you do not use homosexuality as an insult. Dahvie just sounds like a child

    7. dude yassss i totally agree with the people who like atl cause i love atl but botdf sucks like how can anyone that so called "music" cause honestly its not music.

  5. I like them both xD

    But after reading about this whole thing, it kinda seems like BOTDF just wanted attention or something :/ I mean, come on. EVERYONE knows that ATL love to mess around a bit! It's what they do!

    On the other hand, I can see why BOTDF were hurt by what they said. I have reacted that way in a couple situations myself xD


    Eh. Shit happens :/

  8. I think they are both great bands they both need to jt stfu and make up already ... Everyone is blowing all of this bs way out of proportion ... And another thing ppl do talk to much shit about botdf and the thing about that is is you don't like them then don't fucking listen to them!!!!!! Do not make fun of other ppl that listen to them... We are living in 2012 gay or bisexual or lesbian or trans.... Its all welcome we do not I repeat do not live in the fucking 1800s any more ... So unless your jealous bc davihe gets more boob action than you.... SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!! Thank you.....

  9. All Time Low jokes all the fucking time. and Like someone said about BOTDF wanting attetion I kinda feel that because the interview was the middle of July and it is now the middle of August. I just think that this would have happened like right after the interview uploaded and not now.
    And to the person that said that All Time Low is bad and they are a fucked up version of Big Time Rush. You have your own opinion but I would say that All Time Low is better than Big Time Rush. (yes they have different kinds of music that is just my opinion)
    ugggh no hate to either bands (even though Im a hustler and not really heard of botdf other than one song) (and even though it seemed like it no hate to BigTimeRush either hahah.)

  11. Man ok know im just tired of talking shit u know ALL TIME LOW AND BLOOD ON THE DANCEFLOOR just forgive each other this.fuken happened a month ago just forgive each other PERIOD

  12. Whether you like the bands' music has nothing to do with how they handled the situation. It's all just a big misunderstanding.

    Also, when you're making fun of someone because they're gay, then telling them to "suck your dick," that just makes you seem gay.

    (I have no issue with anyone being gay, I think everyone should be free to love who they want)

  13. Really All Time Low jokes about bands all the time. When they call out Boys Like Girls Martin didn't go berserk he didnt say they suck each others dick. He just laughed and forgot but nooooo BOTDF gos crazy over a little joke. They just overreacted but I understand why because the get a lot of hate.

    2. To be quite honest you sound like you just learnt the words shit and fuck. You're allowed to voice your opinion, you don't need to swear and say hateful things about something just because you don't agree with something.

  19. I know this was ages ago but I still hear people talk about this,

    I do think BOTDF overreacted and Alex obviously meant it as a joke (hey, they were buds! They played Smash Bros!) I understand that he was hurt and clearly didn't understand the joke, but if he had a problem he should have contacted Alex directly and they should have talked it out like 'adults'

    geez

    Every should just get along and stop acting like five year olds. They are both awesome so stop whinning.

  21. BOTDF can't even spell "at least". They're just acting like one of those immature 19 year old retarded idiots I see around the internet. No offence to BOTDF fans, I'm just expressing my opinions and the truth I see. BOTDF is just overreacting.

    Plus, for whoever who claimed ATL to be acting like "immature 5 year old kids", then you can't tell the difference when something is a joke and when something is not a joke. Furthermore, BOTDF were using "inappropriate" language. At least ATL was actually being sensible about the twitter situation.

    "Regardless, that weird rant on their end was unnecessary"

    Lawl.

  22. Dahvie's insult is so weak and irrelevant. Whether Alex meant it as a joke or not (It seems likely he did) then dahvie just made the statement look completely true, who wants to chill with someone whos that square? Also since when was standing up for yourself accusing a group of men being gay?.. And it was Alex who made the statement not the rest of the band so why not @ his personal twitter and start the drama there.

    Also, I find it excruciatingly ironic that dahvie vanity had the balls to accuse someone else being gay when he looks like he swings on the other side himself with the make up and lip gloss lol

  23. I also heard that Dahvie made a suicide joke towards alex....and ATL fans(well most) would know why..personally I believe alex was joking about the whole "unless you're blood on the dance floor, then everyone hates you" I was kinda a botdf fan then and I even found it funny....alex even makes fun of his own bond's failures and dumb moments, but I do agree that Dahvie went too far but for all upset botdf fans, at least alex apologized :/
