POWER TRIP Challenging TRAPT On Twitter Is The Online Entertainment The World Needs Right Now

Yesterday, we documented the 900+ tweet meltdown from C-level 90s nü-metal band Trapt. The band seems to be riding a high of “no publicity is bad publicity” and keeping their social assault going all day long, much to the chagrin of Power Trip vocalist Riley Gale.

Gale challenged Trapt to book a show in their own home town and guaranteed that Power Trip could outdraw them:

i bet my band out draws yours in your own home town @TRAPTOFFICIAL. want to put it to the test? two shows, different venues, same night. loser donates their entire guarantee to a charity of the winners choosing. @powertriptx is the band. step up or be labeled COWARDS.

Things really took off after this, and it seemed like Trapt were almost avoiding the challenge:

You don’t sell tickets to anything….

sounds like you’re scared to play the game. is this where i drop the sell out figures from our headlining tours, or our high presale numbers from everywhere else? how about hometown? don’t even get me started on walk up numbers. you’ve already lost, but pick your poison, nerd. https://t.co/5r02PyhywJ

After a fan tried to call Trapt out for low turnout, the band blamed it on, coincidentally, the coronavirus.

There were a lot more people there than that on a Monday during coronavirus time you dumb fuck…

don’t respond to them. respond to me. put your money where your mouth is, bitch. https://t.co/xNWB2XaiRb

oh that’s right, you’re probably broke from delusional fantasies of real success. my bad. we could just make it an easy $20 wager, if that helps?

Buddy your band is never going to do anything ever. You will forever be scraping by. This is why you are a Bernie bitch

that’s weird, i’d call countless US headliners and european tours and getting flown to indonesia for the 1st time last year just to headline a festival of 8k+ people is more than “anything”. but keep avoiding the challenge, pal. cuz ya know you’ve already lost. https://t.co/fILw7JNb91

i’d be willing to bet my band would outdraw yours with only 24 hours notice to promote it. i’ll give y’all 24 weeks. hell, i’ll give you 24 months. might as well call it your last show because we’d bury you. @TRAPTOFFICIAL

Then it got into a dick waving contest really quick:

Just post a pic of a crowd you have recently played for. Very easy… Hurry up bitch

oh. and we don’t rely nor cares about streaming income… wanna know why? because people come to our shows, we move plenty of merch – records, cds, and tapes. a lot of them. you can ask @dark0perative for the numbers if you wanna compare. robots can’t buy vinyl 😉
