Why? Not even trying to be a dick. I listened to them. They were bland, they always seem to be in drama, and one of the members put down kanye for not bring talented on a news post on this site once. I'm not seeing the appeal :/
Disregard their actions personally, and love their music for what it is. If it has t clicked with you yet, I wholeheartedly believe that one day it just will. One of my best friends used to thing this band was super generic and always made fun of me for liking them. Then one day while we were listening to War Paint at work it just hit him - and now it's one of his favorite albums of all time. You just have to find that perfect connection. Right place, right time.
