    Ronnie Radke is the guy everybody loves to hate, from his time in Escape The Fate to his current band Falling In Reverse. Some of what I talk about:
    - The impact Escape The Fate had with "Dying Is Your Latest Fashion" (and that influenced bands like Black Veil Brides and Andy Biersack or Asking Alexandria)
    - How he was replaced by Craig Mabbitt of blessthefall and started Falling In Reverse after getting out of prison
    - The surprising depth of songs like "Drugs," "Keep Holding On" and "Raised By Wolves"

      Ronnie is the greatest ARTIST of all time. He does any genre he wants and does it better than his peers. Whether you like him or not, he's the best to ever do whatever he decides to do.

      when I first watched this, the comments were pretty much nonexistent and I couldn't comment on this video for some reason. and I don't know how you fixed it, but I'm glad you did. and I actually met Ronnie radke once. I've got the picture on my instagram. here's the picture(it was taken in June 2015, so I was 11 at the time)

        Tbh I just miss the old escape the fate, the only album I liked from Falling in reverse is the drug in me is you (I know all of their songs from their album which is awesome) but I feel like that melodic band escape the fate was is gone and Radke is doing some other things too

                      I can’t stand when people aren’t allowed to mess up, like I get some stuff is messed up and not ok, but everyone fucks up and when the media thinks people shouldn’t mess up that’s just stupid

                    I'm a metalhead. People who aren't metalheads stereotype us as being elitist snobs who have no tolerance for any other genres of music. That's not objectivity true. I love all different types of music, from R&B, jazz, reggae, soul, country, hip hop, indie and even some pop music. I know many metalheads who think the same. I'llargue its a small, cave dwelling minority of us that hate other genres. But if I had to pick a genre, you best know I'm going with that Gothenburg melodeath (melodic death metal).
                    I love good music. Its bad, lazy music I have a problem with. Its patronizing to you, the listener, each time someone throws on a i-vi-iii-vii progression, generic rock instrumentation, and sings shallow and elementary lyrics. Its auditory heroin with guaranteed catchy hooks and choruses meant for you to consume over and over. So many musicians and music lovers have problems with Ronnie Radke because of this generic approach to songwriting. His music lacks one of the things great art has: substance. Most of it is just pandering to young teens to boost sales at Epitaph (or whatever other labels he's with). He's a good marketer, but he's far from a great artist. None of his songs are as good as you guys think.

                      When he says if you were around back then... And you realise you've actually been around since then and you're getting old.

                                I was at a Ronnie radke concert years ago and he was definitely the most hardcore performer I've seen in person. He loved the crazy energy. He literally wouldn't start the show until we started a mosh pit.

                                  Decided to watch this video and just got reminded on how incoherent people are when they trash talk others, I would honestly rather listen to hitler’s speech then listen to them complain

                                    when you said that i probably wouldn’t like what you said, i was ready to be pissed off but then i realized you were talking to the people that don’t like ronnie, and it made me so happy

                                      Been a fan of Ronnie's music since 2008 (holy shit... I fell old now) and always felt like I had a connect with it. Not a connection with him, per se, but more that maybe he would know how I felt, or at least understood how to express that. One of the musicians in my teen years, and even today, who helped me through some dark times.

                                              I think you can separate and appreciate the art without liking or "approving of" the artist. I personally stopped listening to FiR when Ronnie decided to rap, not because who he is or was. Some great artists were really shitty people.

                                              This was recommended after I watched the reimagined Drug in Me is You. I think I'm gonna take a listen through the discography I previously shunned now. Thanks man! I'm glad I clicked on this

And if your a grown ass person who needs a role model your pathetic. Love what you love because you love it and who cares about the rest.

                                                    “Stood at the front of the gates of hell, with a glass of ice water in my hands” shit was 🔥 Also, “There’s an hourglass of time, counting down the rest of lives and with every grain of sand, time is slipping through our hands” was so godlike. Probably some of the best lyrics in the genre.

                                                      Ronnie Radke is awesome! I have liked him since he was in Escape the Fate! My oldest daughter likes their music and has met Falling in Reverse!

                                                        Now with Drug In Me Is Reimagined.... Honestly I think you need to do a deep dive analysis on him as a musician, not just his brand. Something changed this last year and good god has it been incredible.

Just saw FIR live with ETF last week and holy shit that show was amazing

Like, it was such an amazing show and he was interactive with fans and took some people’s phone in the front row to record himself on stage cause they gave him their phone. Ronnie back then.. probably wouldn’t have done that. I’m just really proud of him nowadays.

They read some crazy headline and that’s as far as It goes. In fact probably more than half of society in just America read just the headline and don’t actually do research and look into something. But hey who am I to assume Or say what people do.fuck me right?
