Grand Rapids MI, United States (2004 – present)

La Dispute, formed in 2004, is five close friends from Grand Rapids, Michigan with a firm passion for the concept of music and art as a medium for making new friends. As a result, La Dispute makes (or strives to make) music that is both artistically, technically, and emotionally engaging in hopes of establishing legitimate connections with any and all interested people, while encouraging dialogue between those people and themselves about things in life that truly matter and that truly last. La Dispute also carries a firm passion for the relevance of a live show, both for the bands involved and for the people in attendance, and will go to the grave believing that the environment created when strangers come together despite their differences to celebrate one important thing is invaluable and should not under any circumstances be taken for granted.
Their style combines elements of and in a very experimental way to something that can hardly be put into a single genre.

    Let us turn this into a metal elitist thread. Metal is the highest form of music possible, directly descended from classical music (Hello, Nevermore and Yngwie Malmsteen?). Also, it is not just about sex and drugs (rap and hip shit). Fuck bands like Deafheaven trying to blend trv kvlt blvck mvetll with punk music. Punk music is just powerchords. It is dumb. Like this band "La Disbutt" or whatever.

    Excuse me while I go kill myself.. really?... 11 million views, meanwhile amazing metal bands like Savage Messiah, SuidAkrA, and TYR can't even get half a million. Fuck this, seriously.

    I have never listened to their music, but considering that metal is for children the name does not seem out of place. shots fucking fired

    Babymetal is honestly one of the bands I've heard. I'm not even joking.

    That Emo-revival thing ended in like 2012, these are just the remnants

    "Algernon is the best of the fast twinkly bands" that's a fair opinion. I like Algernon also. It's not like I dislike twinkly bands; Merchant Ships, The Brave Abacus, Midwest Pen Pals, etc. are my shit. I am just getting tired of my recent emo bands jumping on the twinklewagon, and they aren't even doing anything exciting with the music!...The emo-revival is prob the worst thing to happen emo imo...The mallcore/emo-pop movement of the early 2000s was way better, not even joking.

    That isn't as bad as a newer band/artist naming themselves after an established band/artist. The most recent example is when a experimental electronic artist named herself Copeland, when there is already a band that goes by the name Copeland (I think they're an emo/alt rock band). Funnily enough, the electronic artist used to go by the name Inga Copeland, so I have no idea why she decided to change her name into one that is already in use. But I like her music, so it's whatever.

    I always thought it was fucking lame that Old Gray named their band after a song by an active band. That's some straight European shit, pulled a Neck Deep
