Look, I usually don’t have this mindset with stuff, but my main problem with the APMAs is that it has completely turned away from what it was originally supposed to be/what it was hyped up to be. It was supposed to be for the bands that work just as hard, if not harder, than anyone else and hardly ever get recognized. The nominees are supposed to be bands that don’t get the attention they deserve. But then when you add Twenty One Pilots, 5 Seconds of Summer, (even Black Veil Brides at this point) and bigger bands like that into the mix, they take away from the other bands that, just once, get to be recognized. That was my problem with 5SOS winning Best Fandom. That is my problem with people complaining about Twenty One Pilots not getting Best Live Band. For once, just let our music scene have this. It doesn’t always have to be about you.
Congratulations to all the bands that won. Hopefully, though, next year will be a little better.
