I'll quote from G-Dragon's own words:

G-D (from first radio appearance, Nov. 27 o6): Our name 'Big Bang' literally describes the group itself. Its a group that is like the real BIGBANG of the universe. The attempt to break the sterotypical image and show a more unique and original performance, was the birth of this group and i think fans admire us more because of that fact.

So, yeah. I love love love love love BIG BANG! You gotta try them out if you haven't.

and here I was thinking this was a thread on the Big Bang theory or the Big Crunch theory...........
No............This is a thread about some silly Asian boy bands..........Aren't boy bands a thing of the past and slowly dying out of existence or is the other side of the world slow in knowing that?


Aww, it's really sad that you think of boy bands that way. But I guess everyone's entitled to their own opinion, right? I'll tell you my side, though.. Big Bang kind of gives "boy bands" a new image.. Unlike other boy bands, they have a different style.. they don't want people to judge them just by their looks. And to add to that, they produce their own songs. They don't just do what their label (YG Entertainment) tells them.

Okay after listening to one of their songs I will only say this.............They sound like a mix of Usher/Typical American Boy Band/Jackie Chan.................Just my opinion but they don't sound all that great and the sound and lyrics are what make the music good...........I don't care about looks or if they produce their own music or not..........Style is what they don't have..............What do you call Asians that pretend to be gangsta? Is there a word for that or not?
Never mind, I found the word.............Gangstasian


I have nothing to say to that.. Can we please not make this a Big Bang hate thread?

Gangstasian? haha! In my point of view, they are not "Gangstasians". In fact, they are a bunch of good singers. And i don't agree with what you've said. They do have their own style. You just don't seem to 'see' it.
