Dream Theater is a Progressive Metal band from New York, specializing in making long epic guitar solo songs. The band started in 1989, disappeared in 1997, then reappeared in 2007 thanks to Guitar Hero. They are sellouts, since more than 10 people have heard about them, and they're totally not br00tul according to the Metal world. They're commonly known for playing long songs, with retarded time signatures and epic br00tal guitar solos.
OMG 100% THE BEST Guitarist ever in the history of forever and secretly Jesus in disguise, according to fans. Is probably the most overrated guitarist in the world, but still one of the best. Writes most of the band's music and lyrics in order to have the longest possible guitar solo. Sweep picks too much and is commonly known for setting his guitar on fire during solos. He also has a smokin' hot wife.
Bassist. Doesn't talk. Is Asian.
A skilled keyboard player and a decent wizard, but he is the most hated member of Dream Theater. Why? Because of the chrome dome? Being a Jew? Posting too much on YouTube? Using Apple products? His cute fluffy kitty? No. Because he replaced Derek Sherinian who replaced Kevin Moore back in '96, and the fans still haven't gotten over it. According to them, Jordan is the worst thing evar in DT, and they should fire him and bring back Moar so that they can redo Images And Words, despite the fact that Moar is already in his own band.
Was a great singer until 2002, but then he damaged his vocal chords from vomiting so much. Now he sounds like a cat run over by a motorcycle at live shows. Likes to spin around on stage and shit. Also he's Canadian.
Their fat drummer who used to have a drinking habit. Now he has replaced it with a habit of self-promoting in the songs he writes. He wrote 5 fucking 10-minute songs about his Alcoholics Anonymous crap, and songs about his crappy childhood and dead father. After The Rev died, he took his place in Avenged Sevenfold. His drumkit is so huge, it has 2 seats (Somewhere along the line he grew a second ass.) and so many cymbals that it resembles a small village in Taiwan. He wants you to eat his ass and balls.
Like most bands, it's the rabid fans that give DT a bad name. The fans seem to think that their fandom is far superior to other crappy fandoms, but when provoked, the fans will react in the same way as the aforementioned 12-year-old girls. Comments of "OMG DREAM THEATER RULZ" and "STFU UR A HATER" litter their Internet existence.
