My friends ultimately hate them for one reason or another. :roll: Which is a bit strange because I'm the only one in the group who actually likes them, and in fact, is a bit obsessed with them. But here are a few of my friends' reactions.

1. "Wow, their music is pretty good, but they look like rapists."
2. "Dude, this stuff is demonic, don't listen to it."
3. "EWW, they look hideous!" he listens to one of their songs. "Wow, they're not half bad."
4. "Oh, cool. My favourite is the mummy dude."
5. "Meh, I don't like their music very much, but they sure look sweet."

My most hated reactions is the 2nd one, because Lordi is no where near satanic.

I'm getting anyone who stands still long enough to listen to the band and I've taken it on myself to do whatever I can to promote them here. The Arockalypse has been the only CD playing in my car so whoever gets a ride also gets to hear Lordi. Captive audience. :twisted:

I usually get "Blood Red Sandman is cool, I dont like anthing else tho".
Then I try showing them something else... They stick by what they said before.

I have a lot of friend who listen metal music. No one thinks something like "to demoniac", "satanic" or so because they ear black metal, death metal, grindcore and so. I you take bands like Vital Remains or Deicide and compare it to Lordi, Lordi is a little pop band.

They all like Lordi music, but they are very disapointed with what the band has done after 2006 :
- Eurovision
- new soft costume (some of my friends hate Lordi because of that, they love costumes which Lordi got in the old video clip (BRS, Devil Is A Loser etc), but not the ones from HRH)
- playing live with playback
- Award TV show (well, they do this before)

My friend totally dont like Lordi. They just dont like that kind of music and what they looks like.

Here is My friend comment:

1. "Wow, their music is pretty good, but they look like rapists."

That's almost like offending rapists, seriously: you're underestimating them.

2. "Dude, this stuff is demonic, don't listen to it."

Fucking jesus worshippers, you're even worse than this lordi shit.

3. "EWW, they look hideous!" he listens to one of their songs. "Wow, they're not half bad."

Their costumes look like a walking piece of shit, trying to play instruments, singing and even trying to make music in a genre that sucks anyway. And their music doesn't sound half good no matter which one I'd listen to and how many times.

4. "Oh, cool. My favourite is the mummy dude."

Right...

5. "Meh, I don't like their music very much, but they sure look sweet."

Yeah, I admit they look sweet, right at the very moment I become a fucking masochist.

I can't understand this kind of reaction, people who said that are really stupid.
You must show them something like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHoL7iUgjiw (Don't look at this if you can't stand blood, it is an unofficial clip from a Death Metal band) , then they will love Lordi.

My best friends and I (and my sister) watched the ESC2006 together and we all like Lordi. We were 20.5. like: "Let's stand up and shout: We did it!" Okay, I'm the only one who has silly dreams 'bout Amen (oh well, my best friend loves Ox, maybe that's the reason) and I'm the biggest fan of us (we're a gang of four).

I don't really know, but most reactions are negative, but these guys aren't my friends, but just classmates.
My friends respect my taste and two are fans... a little... and one is just making fun with me about them. Like imitating Lordi's masks by just pulling some crazy faces. Our favourite is Amen by pulling on our own lips >_O'

Two of my friends likes Lordi and thinks their music is cool, and I often talk to them about Lordi and their songs and so on. But with everyone else of my friends most of them hated Lordi in the beginning. Not because they thought they were bad or something, but to make me angry by saying such things because I just couldn't stop talking about them. Until they found out how much the band really means to me, then they showed a little more respect. Heh...

I have very good friends, and we show respect for others taste in music even if we make fun of it sometimes. And I have to warn you, almost all of my friends are Tokio Hotel-fans, and you know how some of them are like... :lol: but as long as they show respect to Lordi and some other bands I like, I show them respect too, as easy as that :wink:

My friends says that It's my thing what I listen to, but they rather don't like them because of the costumes.
And from the other side they love to tease me 'cause of my worship to Lordi (especially Amen... -.-')

My friends think there just stupid , the say its a waste of money to go to their gigs and a waste of time to listen to their songs. And they can,t stand the fact that i,m so in love wit MR.Lordi and that i see him as my guardian angel . And often i just say that he,s the most important person in my whole life and my friends are then like ... :shock: ( there really jalous of my feeling for MR.Lordi ) They hate him becouse of that and the rest of the band. But a lot of those people that i once saw as my friends are just gone now , out of my life couse i don,t need them anymore. If people want to hang out with me or just wanna be friends with me, they just have to accept my feelings for Lordi... !!!!!!!! :twisted:

8) when i introduced LORDI to my best friend, she got to like them as same as me. haha, maybe thanks to my noisy introduction about them, she accepted my taste.
well, it is really pleasant to talk about them with her because both of us have similar taste against them.

so, i'm lucky person i could get such best friend. it is happy to talk about them in own language...*laughs*

I get the usual handful of "OMG, they're totally Gwar" reactions, but not always. Specifically, I sent a video to one of my Gwar-fan friends, and she not only thought they looked differently, but scarier! Most of my friends think that BRS and HRH are really cool, and a few of them (bf included) actually love them. Then again, I go to art college, so you'll find a lot of people like that there.

Oh.. XD gay?? that's what some of my friends think too...and we're supposed not to talk about their private life and that stuff (not that we know a lot of things, heh, Mr Lordi has 3 dogs, what a fact! :lol: ) so I cannot prove the opposite.

1. "This is not even on my top 1 000 list..."
2. "Rofl xDD"
3. "They're okay..."
4. "I LOVE THEM!! :D" (ahah, I love you too^^)
5. "Nopes, just keeps disapointing me every time..."

My friend has suddenly started to like them.. She's really the one who brought me back to the forum actually. x]
Gave me a good shock when she suddenly turned on Lordi on her mobile phone though :P

There was one dude in my class who screwed out once xDD

Him: "You know one in Lordi is gay right?? LOL!"
Me: "Eh..? And who would that be if I may ask?"
Him: "That guy on keyboard."
Me: "Duude, that's a girl! ROFL!! XDD"
Him: "Oh.. Fuck >.<"
