19 Shameless Things That Happen When You Become Obsessed With A Band

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

1. The fastest you’ve ever run was when the doors opened at a standing-room-only concert.

See, fangirling is good for your health.

2. Your life changed forever when a band member made eye contact with you at a concert for 0.4 seconds.

He was singing to YOU.

3. Your security persuasion skills are unmatched, and you have the backstage passes to prove it.

Those skills ended up being pretty useful when trying to get into bars and out of parking tickets.

4. You went to war if anyone dared to question your beloved band’s talent.


5. Essentially everything you owned had their faces on it.

You NEEDED that limited-edition pencil case and matching water bottle.

6. You kept random shit that they touched, like water bottles and gum.

The Shroud of Turin, Lance Bass’s used napkin. Same difference.

7. You put your parents’ love to the test with carpools to gigs and stadium traffic from hell.

There is no devotion like that of a dad at a Jonas Brothers concert.

8. And your rents’ car became your fandom chariot.

Honk if you’re a ~fangirl forever~.

9. You still find random band relics in your room every now and then.


That awkward moment when you have an exam and the only No. 2 pencil you can find says “I <3 ALL TIME LOW.”

10. You knew exactly where the tour buses parked and which entrances the stars used at your local arena.

The ones with underground bus entrances are THE WORST.

11. You totally sold your soul for meet-and-greet passes.

A picture is worth a thousand words…and a soulless eternity.

12. When they had a televised performance, every TV in your house was ON LOCK.


This is NOT A DRILL.

13. You were a VIP, triple gold star, black belt, all-inclusive member of their fan club.

Best $49.99 you’ve ever spent on literally nothing.

14. You scowled at fangirls in line who set off false-alarm screamfests.

A ~true~ fangirl developed a sixth sense for when the band was really arriving.

15. And when you finally met them in person, your brain decided to die.

That monologue you scripted in the shower for three years didn’t quite go as planned.

16. And when you got older, finally taking down your band posters was an emotional experience.

Not on our walls, but forever in our hearts.

17. The band breaking up was the worst day of your young life.


You may have even worn black to school the next day.

18. Now when you find out someone else was also a former fangirl you become instant BFFs.

If the lead singer didn’t end up being your soulmate like you thought, your new BFF is.

19. And it doesn’t matter how old you are — their songs still fill you with joy.

^ You when “Year 3000” came on at your cousin’s bar mitzvah.

Because true love is ~forever~.
