Bad Religion Guitarist Tells Bring Me The Horizon They “Suck As Humans”


Bad Religion guitarist/vocalist Brian Baker started an online war of words with Bring Me The Horizon yesterday, having taken issue with the security clearance Bring Me The Horizon had during the July 07th stop of the ‘Resurrection Fest‘ in Viviero, Spain. Bring Me The Horizon were direct support to headliners Volbeat on that particular day of the festival.

Baker started off the war of words by sharing the below photo of Bring Me The Horizon that was posted backstage, which showed them and said:

“these people are not to be stopped ever

they may not have a pass

They can escort who they want where they want with or without a pass”

Baker added the caption:

“I’m going to stop these people every time I see them today and tell them how much their band sucks”

Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes was made aware of the post thanks to some mentions and commented directly on it, offering:

“You should of I could of asked you why you’ve been going before Christ and you are playing under us you sorry old wrinkly bastard. P.s saw you a couple of times & you said nada. Willy Woofter”

Band drummer Matt Nicholls also followed suit:

“Hahah I can’t imagine being as old as you are and still acting like a 14 year old girl. Saw you at least 10 times and you didn’t bat an eye lid”

“You got bigger things to worry about nowadays anyway, like ya pension, or cold weather”


Sykes returned with:

“Yeah we are not your enemy, winter is your enemy”

Baker himself then responded back via the comments:

“It seems you’ve missed the point entirely. The issue here is entitlement. My post was a comment on your collective delusion that working local crew at a thirty band festival should be required to memorize your faces to spare you the indignity of breaking stride on the way to your backstage oasis or even worse, the humiliation of carrying credentials.

Your literal display of arrogance (and the hilariously unrecognized irony within it) was what I was sharing with my followers. I honestly don’t know if your music is bad or good – it’s not for old people! I meant that you suck as humans. Sorry for the confusion.”

Of course the added layer of irony here is that three of Bring Me The Horizon‘s past albums were released in the U.S. through Epitaph Records, the label founded by fellow Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz.
