    It was a "meh..." song for me at the start, but now I really like it. Very catchy but yeah, the chorus is still the worst part for me.

    Hey y'all, it's been a very long time since I posted on the forums. I just wanted to stop in and say that I really enjoy All For Nothing, especially with the addition of Page Hamilton. One thing I think everybody can agree with is that his inclusion was out of left field. I think it was actually creative of LP to mix it up this time and have several guests/contributions that were quite unexpected. Most of the criticisms that people here have addressed are the reasons why I like the song so much (Page's voice, Mike's verses, Chester's response vocals, and yes, the chorus as well). In other words, AFN is a song I almost never skip due to its nth degree of badassitude.

    I really hated the gang vocal yells the first time I heard it, but I've grown to be okay with them. The guitar solo is one of my favorites on the album. I wish it was Mike in the chorus just so that it would feel more LP, and because Paige Hamilton has a really generic sounding voice imo (Mike's isn't that special either, I just feel like I've heard hundreds of rock songs that sound like the chorus of AFN). I don't mind the fact that Mike's raps are just about how good of a rapper he is since the delivery is amazing, it's something I can always get into. I wish the track didn't have the ending interlude attached to it, though.

    The people who hate it probably just have bad taste xo. Best song on the album.

    Really? I think it sounds beautiful and dark and wished they made more stuff like that. It adds to the depth of the album for me.

    Jesus what kind of music do you normally like? That was just a bunch of noises flung onto a higher pitched version of the original.

    I just don't find the song appealing and I really dislike the chorus. It literally makes me roll my eyes, not figuratively. Literally.

    I love All For Nothing, but more for Mike's beastly raps than anything. I almost crashed my car rocking out to his second verse lol. And I honestly don't have a problem with his lyrics, I actually thought the soldier/general stuff was pretty creative. The chorus could've been a little better; Chester's presence is a little too underwhelming and it's just one of those songs that sounds like like the chorus vocals should've evolved a bit from the first chorus to the second (maybe ch1: "you're gonna get what you deserve" ch2: "I'm gonna get what I deserve" - nothing major, but it would've made a big difference for me) IMO. BTW as a Hollywood Undead fanatic this sounds nothing like HU except MAYBE Hear Me Now (which was posted) and We Are. But yeah, Gibs: if you're already vehemently biased against HU, why rate their music? That's like a white supremacist going to an MLK speech. ;)

    My remix is a lot better than the original song.

    Because I can. RTSA isn't just for rating songs highly. People aren't always gonna like the music you will. I can be vocal about it if I want to.

    ^ Yup, it's basically saying that if you have nothing nice to say to not say it at all, which I really disagree with. Negative opinions hold just as much weight as positive ones and should not be censored to protect the minds of those not mature enough to handle situations which they may disagree with.

    Saying a song is bad is just as valid as saying it is great and rating a song poorly in a thread specifically designed in order for members to well, rate songs to be expected.
