You know what I have been wondering since I've heard of Pop-Punk?
Who the F*** came up or made up Pop-Punk? I'm a so serious! Who was the idiotic bastard who came up with it...there's a difference in Pop and Punk.
Punk is usually about people hating against things that they don't like or talking about things that are happening or deep deadly feelings. Meanwhile, Pop is just some bull-shit I can't stand: these people talk about their loves and how much they want to kill themselves.
Well, I don't know if they want to kill themselves, but I really don't give a f***. Pop and punk don't mix and that's how it's been for almost 30 years but then someone came up with it. It's so sad how the name "Punk Rock" is being degraded and so trashed up thanks to these posers who claim they are punks: Avril Lavigne and Good Charlotte.
They should either leave the Pop Punk scence behind, or just be plain Pop stars. I mean just POP, not Pop Punk. Bastards.... Current Mood: angry

True Punk- The Ramones
The Ramones are "The Sound That Launched a Thousand Bands". They practically invented the American Punk rock sound. They played loud, fast and hard, and allways with a perpose and passion that is often lacking in modern bands. Their songs were fast and in your face, while also manageing to be catchy enough to gain the attention of non punk rock fans.
Their message was never anything but clear. From tracks like Beat on the Brat to The KKK took My Baby Away they allways managed to evoke thought, if you'd take the time to listen to the lyrics.
My point is, The Ramones struck the perfect blend of so called "poppy" sounds, which brought in new fans, and true punk spirit, which invented a whole new genre in American Music. So the world needs less bands influenced by Emo, and more bands influenced by the Ramones. Catch Ya'll later. Krys Current Mood: good

A question to you, if you happen to be reading this.
Would Pop Punk be as annoying if MTV and mainstream media didn't push it so hard? Would the vocals still be as grateing? Would the guitar still be as generic? Would yellowcard still make me want to break things if I didn't hear it at least once an hour? I think so, but it wouldn't be as bad.
So the question is, how do we change this? How do you make the big companies like MTV and Clearchannel listen? If you have any ideas, let me know, because i'm drawing a blank. Current Mood: contemplative

I suppose that I should DEFINE Pop-Punk.
That could help. But you really SHOULD know this, but hey, if you don't, here's what it is. Pop punk is bad. It is evil. It is the anti-thesis of everything TRUE Punk (Sex Pistols, Clash, Ramones) is about. Pop Punk is making music in the "style" of punk (i'll get to this in a minute) to try to sell more records. Bands that fall in this horrible Genre are bands like Good Charolete (who I depsise so much I don't even bother to spell their name right) Simple Plan and Yellowcard. Of course, I encourage discussion on what bands fall into this hellish genre here, granted anyone ever joins.
A note on the "Style" Of punk, and why that is an oxymoron.
Punk is not a style of dress. It is not a way you wear your hair. It is not a particular sound of music (though some argue it is, but hey, that's their oppinion). Punk is, at its core, about belief. About feeling. It is about being ANTI something. Listen to the Ramones. They don't come straight out and say it, but you can FEEL the passion. That is the essence of Punk, PASSION. That is why I despise shitty bands like GC, you can TELL there is NO TRACE of passion in their songs. They aren't about anything!
But I digress.
Being Punk is not about wearing all black. It is not about wearing a bands tee shirt (even though that can be part of it) it is about breaking the norms. What that means is really dependant on where you live, I guess.
Okay, I guess that covers most of what I wanted to say. So if anyone is reading, and you agree with any of what I'm saying, please join. Current Mood: accomplished
