In a recent interview, John Dolmayan from the rock band System Of A Down had this to say about the Backstreet Boys: “If System of a Down works for them, then great. If the Backstreet Boys work for them, that’s cool too. See, I don’t think anyone has the right to tell people what’s good or bad. It’s all about personal taste. It’s about where you come from and what has brought you here… Let’s take the Backstreet Boys for example – no one has the right to criticize them unless they know what they have been through, what their influences were. It really fu**ing bugs me when people slam other stuff, without knowing anything about it. If it’s not what you like, that’s fine, but if other people like that, so be it. Those people who don’t like our music, that’s their right. Their stuff might not be my thing, but other people like it.”
