    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    It's the haircut that needs to be addressed - 46 year old man gaining weight is normal, 46 year old balding man sporting a spiked haircut isn't. And were not even talking a real beer gut, just some extra pounds.

    Sum 41 does this look infected tour

    The production on DTLI? bothers me, it feels very plastic. I like the record no questions asked but it could have been a lot better and like a few other said you have to admire a band that just sold millions of records deciding not doing the same record again and instead actually shaping it up and making something else.

    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    I think half the reason i fell in love with blink more than Green Day, who at the time were huge with every edgy kid "who's not like everybody else", was that Billie Joe seemed like a preachy asshole and blink just seemed like guys who acted like morons just like me and my friends. Bear in mind though I was 14 and could relate to 30-year old men so I don't know who that says more about, me or Mark and Tom. Oh, and blink is better than Green Day. Apple Shampoo, Lemmings, Waggy, Man Overboard, Dammit and Wendy Clear are still songs that I listen to on a daily basis and Mark peaked in 1997 and has been going down hill in terms of wongwriting ever since.

    Old School & Rare videos

    That KROQ video was awesome, frankly i enjoyed that much more than the Camden video everyone's creaming their pants about.

    Frank Turner

    Frank is awesome but like you said he gives and takes, on every record there's at least one really weak song. That being said he is on of the more amusing artists out there and truly seems like a greta guy to hang out with. I Knew Prufrock Before He Got Famous is one truly great song along with so many others but that one is probably my favourite song.

    The TTS Academy Scam Thread

    Just stumbled upon this and wow, this would be hilarious if it wasn't for the fact that it's for real. I noticed that if you click on invest you can click a box that says a financial adviser is helping you, I work as a financial advisor and if I helped one of my clients invest in this without telling them it's a moronic idea and that you will most likely never see a dime of that money again I would lose my license and consequentially my job. This might be the worst "investment opportunity" I've ever seen and I've seen some dumb shit but most of the time the companies at least has something that resembles a business plan and a plan to make money on something that relates to you main project.

    I never got the need for the "bass-only" parts in those songs when they're so incredibly boring. It's just like they took one part of the song and removed the other instruments and vocals which makes it just seem tacked on. If you're gonna do something at least make the part somewhat interesting to listen to like Boring or Voyeur
  8. Was not expecting much since I didn't like their last record but this was good, a little to long though. Still I wonder what it is that makes Dave always point out they are a rock band no matter what they do, it's like NFG:s obsession with being pop-punk for some reason.

    Rise Against - The Violence

    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.
  10. 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.

    (Album Showdown) WYHSB vs California

    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.
  12. 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.

    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.

    "The Sum 41 Thread"

    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.

    Show From Interesting Time for Blink

    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.
