hey, i've noticed in the last couple years these damn little sell out emo bands like good charolette and blink have been calling themselves punk...one problem, their whinning like little 12 year old girls having their first period.
they are what MTV considers "punk". just because MTV calls something like that "punk" doesn't mean the good music has actually died. just look harder.
last time i checked, punk songs actually had some type of messege about government, anybody else remember the good ole' days when the ramones and dead kennedys and clash ruled the scene?
there are still a lot of good bands there who have decent statements... but once again, you have to overlook MTV to find them. all the older bands still "rule the scene" where i live.
but anyway... i didn't read this entire topic... because i'm assuming about 2 pages of it is either fighting about what type of music a certain bands plays or speeches about selling out.
i don't have patience for close-minded, ignorant responses right now. :P
