I don't like Acrobat.

I mean I'll listen to it, but I'm not gonna pray for it to be played live. Some people on this board worship it like it's god, but I think it's just another well lyrically written song, nothing more.

Some people really hype it up to make it seem like 'Acrobat or death' I would rather hear 'Like A Song' or 'One Tree Hill' played again on the current tour.

A number of points.

1. There is somthing in the FAQ's about bashing Acrobat I'm sure of it... look it up.

2.When using the word "god" in reference to Acrobat you should CAPITALISE! Respect Acrobat!

3."Acrobat or Death" is a silly propostion. Clearly most on this board would willingly sacrifice themselves for Acrobat to be played live.

Other than that you make a very convincing case.

Who the hell could not like Acrobat? The lyrics are classic and touching, and it sounds great, too.

Agreed. Acrobat is very overhyped on this board.
