  1. I used to love Rise Against, Revolutions is still on of my favourite records. Siren Song would probably be up there if it wasn't forthe annoying production. This song was meh, along with everything since Appeal To Reason. The mediocore songs aren't helped by the fact that Tim lost his voice 10 years ago and it hasn't been the same since.
  2. I think people often forget he was only 16 when Cheshire was recorded and 18 for Dude Ranch, many people continue to grow skillwise as musicans well into their 20's and he had talent, that's for sure. Just listen to Stevo from Sum 41, the drumming on HHOP is kind of boring but it continually got better over the years.
  3. I was 14 when WYHSB was released and while my english wasn't as good as it is today that album clicked with me right away. Really awesome album and along with his songs on Dude Ranch my favorite Mark songs if you look to a record as a whole. California I really wanted to like since I had such high hopes for it but gave up on it in mid July and haven't listened to it in whole since.
  4. This song sounds like something a band wearing "Defend Pop-punk"-shirts would release. I don't like it to be honest, blink to me has always been something I can identify from the get go no matter what record it is, this sounds like every other bro pop-punk band out there with the exception of the terrible voices which blink thankfully lacks.
  5. This is late but I bought the album brand new in 2007, it popped up on a lot of Sdandinavian e-stores at that time. No idea though if this was just the initial pressing or if they got their hand on more by some chance.
  6. Half Hour is a reallly daring debut for a band signed to be the next Blink with a metal song as the opener, one song that's a drum solo, a rap song, another metal song and a horn section in the middle of another song. To me that's what really separates Sum 41 from all the other pop-punk bands of that era like NFG, Simple Plan and Good Charlotte, they did their thing and then they took a pretty big chance with DTLI? instead of playing it safe and make another AKNF.
  7. Fun fact as well that this was Green Day at an all-time low in terms of commercial success, Warning didn't do that well but still spawned hit singles and then they just throw out a great greatest hits setlist at a tour were everyone will be comparing the bands and still manages to throw in a deep-cut and some covers. I mean compare this: Anthem Part Two The Rock Show Dumpweed Going Away to College What's My Age Again? Please Take Me Home Happy Holidays, You Bastard Adam's Song First Date Carousel When You Fucked Grandpa Dysentery Gary Family Reunion Don't Leave Me Stay Together for the Kids All the Small Things What Went Wrong? Reckless Abandon Dammit To this: Maria Longview Welcome to Paradise Hitchin' a Ride Brain Stew Jaded 2000 Light Years Away Knowledge (Operation Ivy cover) Basket Case She King for a Day Shout (The Isley Brothers cover) Waiting Minority When I Come Around Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) As a casual fan I know which set I would prefer at least.
  8. Did that phase ever end? Never trust a man with a comb-over!
  9. God damn this band was pretentious. Honestly, watching Tom dance around "behind the scenes"without the music is even more awkward than watching the real video. But hey, at least it is the american version of Pink Floyd we're watching.
  10. Yeah it's open which also means that there will probably be a pretty dead crowd since "anyone" can attend and the tickets are dirt cheap. At least it's cheap entertainment for all of us, we get to see blink for 10 USD and you get to watch us plan it out. Not to mention we can ride rollercoasters and watch blink at the same time, good luck doing that in an amphitheater.
  11. That's the thing, you don't buy tickets to the show in advance but you pay for the entrance to the amusement park which means that it's "sold out" when the park is at full capacity. But be there when they open in the morning and you should be good. Cheap as shit though, roughly 10 euros if you pay your entrance before 18:00 and 25 after. And yeah the park is right across the bay from the Viking Line terminal, the Silja Line/Tallink terminal is further up to the north.
  12. Feel the same way, although playing an amusement park seems kind of odd when there are so many better venues in Stockholm. Either way, count me in. Been waiting for this day since 2006 and been constantly bummed that they've ignored Sweden when every other band's been playing here.
  13. Love the footage although the guitar sounds like carp. Someone somewhere must be having a ton of cool blink videos hidden away which will never see the light of day.
  14. Definitely touring members, it sounds better and it also gives you the option to change things up. But preferably I'd have none of them unless it's a Sum 41 situation where the full-time member leaves and the entire discography is written with two guitar players in the band.
  15. Imagine a DVD/Blu-ray of footage from 1996-1998 along with demos and stuff from the recording sessions, live videos and other rarities, I'd rather have that than a Dude Ranch tour which I will never get to enjoy other than on Youtube with a dead crowd and two thirds of the band that made the record missing.
