Petition Started to Get GHOST To Break Up

Why all the hate for Ghost?

Why all the hate for Ghost?

The Ghost hype machine backlash has reached critical mass. One anti-Ghost fan, perhaps we refer to him person as a Ghostbuster, has started a petition on for Ghost's disbandment?

But why?

We petition against Ghost of the heavy metal genre that continues to make albums and tour. Many people getting into metal think that they are the real deal and that we should forget the real bands like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, etc. They wish to destroy real metal with their carnival music nonsense. Seriously, is a song like If You Have Ghost actually something that a real metalhead would listen to? They are not metal. People also make the erroneous claim that they are so directly inspired by King Diamond/Mercyful Fate, which is just wrong. They are, in fact, a watered-down version of BOC. We the people oppose Ghost continuing as a band, and they should be split up as soon as possible.

If we get 10,000 signatures then MAYBE they will listen and stop making music. Ghost has already spent the last several years butchering our ears with their awful poser music. Real metal does not involve Hot Topic bands. Ghost is not metal. Thank you for reading.

There are so many ridiculous claims in here, let me just go through a few of them.

First off, what Ghost fan has ever said we should forget about Sabbath, Priest or Maiden? That's ridiculous. If anything, Ghost reminds us of bands of yesteryear, and made me go back to listen to way more Mercyful Fate (for example) than ever before.

Secondly, here are links to Judas Priest, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden merch at Hot Topic.

So what's your point?

As of this writing, the petition has barely cracked 100 signatures. Good luck getting the band to listen!
