It takes a lot of passion, dedication and drive to create some of the best fandoms out there. They stick with their band through good times and bad, bonding with fellow fans and building relationships that last a lifetime. You mess with the fandom, you mess with the family.
Check out our list of fandoms you do NOT want to mess with below.

Fandom: The Clique
Never underestimate the Skeleton Clique, or the Clique as they've come to be called. Not many fandoms can decipher cryptic social media posts and spread news as quickly as TOP fans.

Fandom: Soldiers of the Royal Council
This tight-knit fandom will not hesitate to stick up for one another. It's also impressive how quickly they show up when the band needs their assistance in voting for various awards.
Love this. Love the @PalayeRoyale family. And can I just say that if I lived where you are and we had been friends, I would have kicked those bullies arses for you. 'Cause we're soldiers. And 'cause this family is worth fighting for.

Fandom: BVB Army
Not many fandoms have as much dedication and passion as the BVB Army, and the band knows it. I mean, have you seen their BVB Army shirts?
I have no words, nothing. I fucking love this song just watching Black Veil Brides grow and the watching the BVB Army gettin bigger and watching five man save lives through their music. It’s amazing how they can get through the world when I can’t. But I have them❤️ pic.twitter.com/0uXvI6o1tj

The connection between Tonight Alive and their Humans is one that will tug on anyone's heartstrings. These fans have been around for the long haul, creating connections with the band and fellow fans that can never be broken.
It's so weird time think when I first saw tonight alive it was 8 days before my 14th birthday when I next see them it will be 12 days after my 19th.
I've literally grown up listen to tonight alive and seeing them live.

Once you're a Hustler, you're a Hustler for life. The All Time Low fandom go hard and very seldom go home. Dedication lasts a lifetime. (See what I did there?)
I'm just so fucking thankful for all the nice people in the all time low fandom / hustlers are so fucking nice and helping me out! ����

There’s this new generation of young @AllTimeLow Hustlers and then there’s me still not feeling old. I guess ATL is my fountain of youth.
