Today, I told my girlfriend of eight months that if she didn't start taking my band's music seriously, we couldn't see each other anymore. She said fine, and I hugged her, but then she stood up and said 'I hope we can still be friends,' and walked out the door. FML

I love how everyone is automatically assuming that this guy was an untalented musician with no passion whatsoever for music, who had a girlfriend who is completely honest and totally unbiased.

I take it you've never surfed Myspace Music. Just going by the incredibly dismal ratio of shit to good bands out there, my money says this guy's not fronting the next Black Mountain.

Regardless of how good he is, why should he expect her to take a band that probably makes almost no money seriously? Infact, even if it was the beatles, why the fuck would your girlfriend have to take the music seriously?

'Although they are different, isn't liking something and taking it seriously the same in some respect for this situation?'

Bullshit. There's respecting him and his band members as musicians and people who love what they do, and there's taking the piss and constantly ribbing them. Liking the music is nothing to do with either. Tbh I can't tell whether this is an FML or a YDI, as it depends on context: if she made one light-hearted comment and you started whining, YDI, but if she kept taking the piss and generally putting your band down and you talked to her about it but she reacted like this, FYL.

If the latter is the case, OP did the right thing and shouldn't regret it.

If he's a dick it's better this way. If she was insulting/ not supportive it is also better this way. Also the girl didn't seem to care too much about the OP to walk away that easily (Sorry OP :-( )


People it is very simple. It is sex, drugs and Rock and Roll. So Op has failed in this. You are not meant to be in a rock band my friend, you might want to try out for the drama department, because you sure are a diva.

This. So many assholes are in "bands" and they think that their music is serious shit. However, the world is already full of shitty emo nerdcore bands and we don't need anymore polluting the musical world.
