Why you should vote for twenty one pilots for best live band in the 2015 APMAs.

Reason 1: Tyler literally stands on top of the crowd while performing a song. You hold him up by his feet.

Reason 2: Josh has an entire smaller drum kit that they put on the crowd so that he can play drums ON TOP OF YOU.

Reason 3: At the end of every show, Tyler and Josh both stand on the crowd and play on drums covered in water so they will splash on you.

Reason 4: They do this incredible little dual drum duet performance

Reason 5: Tyler jumps off of things every 5 minutes

Reason 6: Josh does a backflip off of Tyler’s piano at every show. He could easily hurt himself doing so but he does it anyway.

Reason 7: They do their best friend handshake in between songs

Reason 8: Tyler risks his life at every show by climbing anything and everything that is tall.

Reason 9: Last but not least, at least one of them comes out after almost every show to meet and talk to their fans. (That’s me and my friend with Tyler. I’m the one with the glasses.)

They honestly are the best live band that I have ever seen, and I’ve been to a lot of concerts (including paramore who is also up for best live band. paramore is awesome live, but it’s nothing compared to the show that twenty one pilots put on.). I have seen them twice and have tickets to see them again. They give their all at every single show, even risking their lives doing dangerous stunts, all to make their show worthwhile for us, their fans. They deserve this so much. They are also nominated for most dedicated fans, so you should vote for them for that too. 

Please vote for them here:

*disclaimer: none of the above images or gifs are mine other than the very last picture of Tyler and I.

I describe ‘Lane Boy’ as the moment where I broke character. Saying things that weren’t necessarily artistic or beautiful, but exactly what I wanted to say and exactly what I was feeling. I broke character and became a frustrated human. For a moment. I don’t imagine needing to say things like that anymore. I remember showing that song to some people and they said, ‘I don’t think you want to say that…’ And Josh said to me, ‘Let’s say it.’

Okay but like,

out of ATL, 5Sec, 1975, Panic!, FOB, AND Twenty One Pilots you choose


WHat the SHIT 
like alright who actually likes 5 seconds of summer AND is on tumblr. Im just dissapointed to see out of all of these huge fandoms on here you pick the fuckboy band. So many other more deserving fandoms have been so devoted and you pick 5 sec…

I know 5 Seconds of Summer. I’ve seen all their dicks, Calum swings left.
