When people...

1. refer to Owl City as “they”
Owl City is just one guy, ok? Why is it so hard to understand that? It's ok if you didn't know at first but seriously the arguments about it on Youtube comments are just like no
Adam does have a live band while he tours and he sometimes collaborates with other artists but really Owl City is all him

2. say Adam's only songs are Fireflies and Good Time
that's just like saying the only pokemon in existence is Pikachu

3. say Owl City is “just a boyband for teenage girls”
there are so many things wrong with this sentence
although it is true that a large majority of the hoot owl fandom is female, Owl City is for everyone

4. say “Owl City is only for Christians”
yes, Adam is Christian but that does not mean that you have to be to enjoy his music

again, Owl City is for everyone regardless of age, gender, religion, race, etc. and not exclusively for just one group of people

5. say Adam's music is “auto-tuned crap”
I do not actually know if he uses auto-tune but calling it crap is just no I mean I understand if Owl City isn't in the genre you like and if you prefer blues or classical or rock or something but that does not automatically make it crap

6. call Adam Young “old”
and it's not because his last name is Young, it's because he really isn't old

“that dude is like 40”

hE'S FREAKING 26, OK? turning 27 this year on July 5

7. associate Vanilla Twilight with Twilight
I cannot express how wrong this is, I found a Youtube video in the related videos a while back where someone made a Vanilla Twilight-Twilight music video and the comments made me angry beyond reason “Adam wrote Vanilla Twilight for Twilight”
NO NO NO HE DID NOT PLEASE GO AWAY PLEASE LEAVE NO HE DID NOT JUST GO AWAY
ugh just because they both have the word “Twilight” in them
I'm sorry to all the Twilight fans out there but Twilight isn't that good of a story, honestly, there are billions of better ones out there and associating it with Vanilla Twilight (one of the best songs in the world) is really just an insult to Adam especially since that song portrays innocent love not obsession

8. call Good Time Carly Rae Jepsen's song
I have nothing against Carly Rae Jepsen, actually but technically she didn't contribute to anything, Adam made the instrumentals and he wrote the song with Matthew Thiessen

plus Adam can sing it perfectly fine without her (check out the Good Time early demo, it's gOT AN ACOUSTIC GUITAR)

the only reason he sang it with her is because his manager is friends with her manager (he revealed that in an interview which you can watch on Youtube but I don't remember which interview so yeah)

9. say Adam can't sing good live
first of all, have you ever heard him sing live or are you just assuming that he can't because “he uses auto-tune”?

If it's the latter then try listening to these Youtube videos:

Cave In live

If My Heart Was A House live

Galaxies live

The Bird And The Worm live

I told you his voice was aMAZING but it is based on opinion, I guess, but admit it, he isn't that bad of a singer

(in my opinion, though, he's one of the best)

10. say that Adam can't dance

like I said before, it's all based on opinion, if you don't like his moves then that's ok but really he can dance

I love the fact that he never took dancing or singing lessons or anything and he just does what he likes and doesn't care if it isn't "professional"

(the gif isn't mine by the way, I got it from here)

P.S. I was originally gonna put "Ten Things That Piss Off Hoot Owls" but yeah I decided to go with another title...

    I like Owl City's Firefly, but their other songs are bad and have too much autotune. They're all old geezers and need to take a few tips from Carly Rae Jepsen. But since they're the new Bieberstreet Boys and idols for teen girls, they can get away with their bad dancing and ignorance of anything non-Christian.
    Jack Pschitt and Dragonfyre like this.

    To be honest, I finally realized that Owl City is not a game/nime, but a singer.
    As soon as I found out that we are not talking about game/anime music, I put on Fireflies and Vanilla Twillight on Youtube...

    1) I knew the Fireflies song from before, and I already liked it! Yet...
    2) Vanilla Twillight IS the reason everyone thinks Owl City is for teenage girls! Really, if it wasn't for Fireflies, I would believe the same too!
    3) I can agree that Vanilla Twillight has nothing to do with Twillight, still, it's a girlish song...
