Can confirm. My kids were traumatized when I screamed "Hannah" at the top of my lungs when prompted by an announcer at a show years ago. For some reason, my voice carried extremely well over 14,000 screaming girls. Yes, I saw Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers in their prime. High point of my life to date.
This makes me imagine Buddy the Elf screaming "SANTA" over the children.
Thank you for reminding me of this
You smell like beef and cheese, you don't smell like santa...
My thought exactly
"SANTAAAAA! OH MY GOD!!! Santa here? I know him! I know him!"
I hope he found his dad by now.
Dude, I saw NSync in concert during their prime and you better believe this grown man out screamed all those preteen girls. Those guys knew how to put on a show.
Are they still touring with NKOTB?
Edit: nevermind, that's Backstreet Boys.
Maybe an urban fashion show😅
Midway through reading this I thought your daughters name was Hannah, and they were traumatized that their dad showed up to the concert to embarrass them. I was thinking they were at slipknot or marilyn manson or something like that. Then a dad in a sweater vest just wandering around the floor or the arena yelling HANNAH!!!! HANNAH!!!! WHERE ARE YOOOOUUUU??????"
Press X to Jason.
You are living your best life
I feel very attacked that you think Miley is past her prime.
If you are on The Voice you pretty much admit defeat
So sorry! She was dead to me when she burned the blonde wig.
"For my next song I'm going to shove the microphone up my vagina and sing through it! Bring your kids to see me!"
Was it that long ago? My kids want cars now, so maybe.
Did a lot of heads turn at that moment? Any Ragrets?
The better part of 8 rows in the section turned around, with looks of concern.
Can confirm. Must be very high to attend.
It would sound EXACTLY like this
Yeah I thought of that too. Here comes the spice girls: "huaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh"
overactive teenage hormones intensifies
Thank you for sharing this. This is one of those things you needed but didn't know until you found it.
I am glad to have helped.
I thought it will be more like this. GOOOOAAAAAAALLLLL!!!
What was that? It sounded like trains... it was horror... it was God forsaken horror! May we find peace, that thing was beyond horrifying!
So grateful for this comment
I will never not upvote this.
Thank you. So much.
Not to mention old people screaming at jazz bands.
That would less scary and more hilarious- then again maybe they would sound like zombies, then again are jazz concerts old people particularly?
I would be scared. No, of course jazz is not just for old people, but the few times I end up at concerts with mostly old people (which is nice enough as long as they keep on not screaming) it’s jazz.
Depends on the Jazz. I've been to shows where people were crowd surfing with double basses.
Duke Silver makes old ladies swoon
I dig your groovy tunes, man.
not old guys but worth sharing. Love this shot.
Hilarious like... this?
Only the power of K-pop can bring the Korea's together
The Korea's what?
This group (SNSD) actually get their songs blasted over the border to North Korea (you can hear it here at 1:56.) Their popularity have sort of leaked over so much that NK requested one of the members to join in with the North Korean orchestras historic performance in Seoul celebrating the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
This video of the girlgroup Momoland is my favorite. The audience just sounds like they're getting brutally murdered. My favorite comment on the video:
Really nice of them to perform in a mental asylum. The hysterical screaming gives this song the golden touch to perfection that it needed. My favourite moments: 2:41 Here the crowd really shines in a beautiful chorus. I can picture the foam at their mouths very well. 1:21 a brilliant solo I cannot, and will not have enough of. Thank you, horny teenage boy.
Oh it's so beautiful how their faces are all confused and then suddenly they light up with joy! It's beautiful!
SNSD making an arena full of guys sing "Dududududu Kissing you baby"
Wow they do actually sound a bit like the ducks
I was gonna say, kpop fans are the male equivalent of screaming teen girls lol
Is this more than one music act, or are there actually 9 girls in one group?
Edit: I'm learning so much, today, most of which is: KPop don't fuck around.
It's one group, Girls Generation or SNSD. Yes, they have 9 members. Korean men have to serve in the military for 2 years, most do it in their 20s, so they're just normal young men who like pop queens.
They are Korea’s biggest group at one point. All 9 girls were in the group.
This is pretty normal for KPop groups actually. They also like to have groups thathave subgroups like NCT. There's NCT U, NCT Dream, and NCT 127. Not sure what the spread is exactly but some people are in more than one group and some are only in one. KPop groups can get kinda confusing lol.
Expanding upon what other people said:
Or this legendary fanboy: https://youtu.be/5QJHI4ezXKo
I knew a video of SNSD performing for troops was going to pop up in this thread. It was my first thought too.
This is so wholesome, they all look so happy and excited
This makes me wonder if American soldiers stationed in Korea end up pretty into K-Pop themselves.
I've seen a couple videos of the girl group acts touring army bases, and the Americans there mostly just seemed incredibly confused by how enthused their Korean counterparts were.
What the actual fuck
Military service is mandatory for all Korean men. Two years. They even have professional soccer, baseball, basketball, and esports teams run by the military so they can continue their careers while serving.
This group, SNSD or Girls Generation, is ridiculously popular. And girl groups in Korea typically have pretty large male fanbases.
I'm trying to imagine this in America. Lets have Rihanna go sing for the Troops
Wow that video was too cute, my heart is so full
This was brilliant, thank you for linking it.
This happens at punk rock concerts, and sometimes at sports games. But instead of dudes screaming at the band, they scream at each other and shove everyone around
I've screamed for Lacuna Coil and it didn't seem all that weird.
In your defense, Lacuna Coil rocks!
I don’t sound good, but when I saw Circa Survive i was screaming along with Anthony Green and dancing like a damn fool. It’s almost a form of therapy for me hahaha.
In your defense, Circa Survive kicks fucking ass.
I feel like you've never been to a punk rock show. We scream at the band and only scream at each other when someone falls over in the pit and everyone else does their best to stop anyone from standing on them. Punks are possibly some of the friendliest and most welcoming concert goers out there.
That reminds me of that time I imagined a stadium filled entirely with perfect clones of me.
All would clap in unison, and all would fail at highfiving each other.
Why do you hate pandas so much though?
They killed my parents.
Also there's no record of what they taste like beyond "not nice"
Also, something makes me think that me throwing my underwear on stage wouldn't be received the same way as it does for women.
I'd probably end up in handcuffs, just not the kinky type.
It seems to work better if you wore a dress. I tried it and they didn't seem to like the part where I needed to take my pants off first. I will try wearing a dress to my next concert and see how that goes for me. I hope they're okay with tighty whities cause I don't have any money for nice lingerie.
See you have to have a spare pair in your pocket for that.
All handcuffs are the kinky type if you are dedicated enough
The non-furry type will most likely only lead to butt sex, which is fine, if that's someone's thing.
It's more acceptable for women to throw their underwear on stage because they don't poop.
Kpop girl group live performances. Fanboys EVERYWHERE
But do they all go "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!" for hours on end?
We call this the microphone fanboy
The noise, yes, but maybe not for hours on end! At least not that I’ve heard hahaha
Same with Japanese idol performances. It gets pretty creepy.
Maybe that’s why they have fan chants.
TIL OP has never been to Korea.
I’m fairly certain you’ll hear screaming boys at a Britney Spears concert.
Does she even exist anymore? I haven't heard her name since she went crazy and shaved all her hair off.
She’s got a running show in Vegas
Can you please leave Britney alone?
Circus, Femme Fatale, and Work Bitch?
You've clearly never seen gay men respond to Lady Gaga...
Prob would still sound like teenage girls tbh
You've clearly never been to a Jpop concert in Japan.
Fucking idols, man
This is something I've never understood, why exactly do girls do this in the first place? Is it so they can't actually hear how terrible some of the bands are?
Why do guys cheer and yell at basketball and football games. It's really not that weird
Cheering and clapping to support your team is very different from the response we are talking about at concerts. Plus you know women watch sports too right?
I think it may be competition with other girls. They are definitely reacting to the band, but I think the over-the-top reactions might be a way to try distinguishing themselves from the other girls in the audience. In a pathetic, futile sort of way that is nevertheless compelled by their biology, kind of like white-knighting or giving money to camgirls in hopes of a - ahem - reward.
And dudes who yell and cheer at football games are trying to distinguish themselves and compete for the attention of Tom Brady? You're overthinking things to the point of idiocy.
Have you heard of Listzomania? This is not a new phenomenon.
It already happens in Korea and Japan, especially with wota (girl group otaku) fan chants. They basically sound like an army
Screaming along with the music is kind of awesome actually
It's much better than uncoordinated howling, definitely
Fanchants are the best.
Some boys scream at boy bands too!
That's why boy bands are banned from The Vatican. The moment they arrive there's screaming and hands everywhere.
God! I thought no one caught me at the NKOTB reunion.
Came to say that OP has never seen a K-Pop band but late as usual
You haven't seen KPop fanboys
Lol screaming... Clawing at their faces and pulling their hair. Crying hysterically "I want to fuck you so baaaaadddd"
Speaking of shouting, after 2 years of being together my ex heard me shout for the first time when we were on a rollercoaster. She told me it terrified her and she thought I was dying
here's a legendary kpop crazy fanboy
See videos of k-pop bands preforming for SK soldiers?
ever been to an Arch Enemy concert?
You mean like k-pop idol concerts?
Just have a look at live kpop girl groups that’s the way guys would scream and im screaming with them hahaha
Have you seen k-pop?
Boys scream like that for a different type of boy band (professional sports)
Have you seen pop idol bands in Japan or Korea? Because this is literally what happens... it's more terrifying than hilarious, especially if you've seen "Perfect Blue."
Watch female kpop bands... their fans are mostly boys/men
Hilarious and terrifying is accurate. https://youtu.be/zFaZNnI1KSY Starts about at 0:50
if adult men screamed at Miley Cyrus the way adult women were screaming at Justin Bieber when they were young, the prisons would be a lot more crowded
I've heard the sound. I saw a video from Comic-Con a couple years back, when they showed a Marvel teaser, followed by the title "Avengers", and then the words "Infinity War Part I" appeared for the first time below it, and the entire room full of mostly dudes made that sound. TBH, my heart is still making that sound. April 27, baby!
