The amount of hate/criticism Floor has recieved from metalheads for saying that she doesn’t like Slayer is ridiculous and just sad. A lot of these “trve” metalheads like to act tough but cry over the fact that one person (that doesn’t mean much to them) said some critical things about the legendary thrash metal band Slayer. I’m a metalhead myself (my favorites are classic, heavy, power, and symphonic metal) and I do enjoy some of Slayer’s music, but she’s allowed to have her own opinion without being harassed. What’s worse is that a lot of them have been throwing sexist insults at Floor and ironically trashing Nightwish while defending Slayer. Guess what, everyone likes different music and what you think is better is neither right nor wrong. The elitism in this community is terrible and is what drives some people away from the genre.

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted one time to see you laughing
I only want to see you laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain Purple rain
Purple rain Purple rain
Purple rain Purple rain

I only want to see you bathing in the purple rain

I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby I could never steal you from another
It’s such a shame our friendship had to end

Purple rain Purple rain
Purple rain Purple rain
Purple rain Purple rain

I only want to see you underneath the purple rain

Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing
It’s time we all reach out for something new
That means you too
You say you want a leader
But you can’t seem to make up your mind
I think you better close it
And let me guide you to the purple rain

Purple rain Purple rain
Purple rain Purple rain

If you know what I’m singing about up here
C'mon raise your hand

Purple rain Purple rain

I only want to see you, only want to see you
In the purple rain

Here’s to all the band students who have parents who don’t support them. Here’s to all the band students that has someone in their life that doesn’t support their passion for music and doesn’t support their career in music. Here’s to all the band students who had to hear crap from other people about band when those people really had no idea how wonderful and beautiful band is. Music is beautiful and in this day and age, people seem to forget that. Money doesn’t matter. Music does. They don’t understand how thrilling band can be and they don’t understand our deep sorrow when we must say goodbye for the last time. Fight for your love of music. Music will always stand by you no matter what.
