  1. I get that music videos can't have the budgets that they used to have, but there is no reason they can't have the creativity that they used to have. It's pathetic and borderline pointless how many big name acts waste time making music videos that are completely generic. Video equipment and software is more available and less expensive than ever before. You can still make creative/funny/worthwhile music videos for your fans even if they don't serve the same type of marketing purpose they did on MTV.

  2. Does anyone even watch/look forward to music videos these days? They're completely useless in this day and age and lack the impact they had during the MTV era imo. Just release the music with a lyric video maybe and you're set, no one cares

  3. I liked that community thing with Happy Days, and I also thought the videos for HISALP were atleast trying to do something meaningful. But yeah musicvideos have become a weird media to work with in this day and age.

  4. I do miss the funny and stupid music videos like Dammit, Josie, What's My Age Again, All the Small Things, Man Overboard and First Date. But a couple of the serious videos are great too. Always has a great music video and I Miss You's music video is great too, although I do think that music video is weird as hell. I also think Feeling This has a good video too. The rest of the serious ones are trash though. I just hate it when blink are in the video as just the band rather than as part of the whole video. It's boring seeing a random dude and a random girl falling for each other when

  5. Without a doubt, without the videos of WMAA and ATST, blink wouldn’t have reached nearly the peak that they did. But that’s just how the music industry as a whole has changed

  6. music videos were fun and important during the MTV days but now they're pointless and cringeworthy.

  7. The only music videos I ever really liked were blink-182 videos back when they made them stupid on purpose. The last great one was First Date imo. Too many music videos (including blink videos) are just a band playing in a room and those are the most boring thing ever.

  9. Sure. Up all night. Bored to death. Anxiety. Hallucinations. Pretty much almost any blink or Ava lead single. im surprised I’m getting push back on this this is how most music videos have worked until recent years where music videos don’t matter anymore. It’s a marketing tactic because you get the hype around the song release and then people get hyped again for the music video three to four weeks later. The lyric video comes with the song then the band goes and shoots the music video. These days there’s a lot more simultaneous releases especially with the large pop artists

  10. I don’t agree, they maybe matter for small acts but not for well established artists. No one would cry if they’d only release a lyric video. “I can’t wait for the music video” - said no one ever since 2006

  11. EXCACTLY. Its not really a question about the money but innovation and creativity. The Happy Days collab and HISALP is probably the cheapest they've done and still the standouts post Untitled in my mind.

  12. 100%! I was just saying elsewhere on the interwebs whenever I make a Sticker Strat replica (god knows when), I'll make it in its current condition with the black tape and blink stickers. Tom and his camp continue to beat around the bush and not show us a complete shot of the guitar, it would give people a clearer idea of what it looks like now. Plus as far as I know, no one has done it yet (chances are someone will read this and beat me to it lol) Oh yeah! I know Jonny Two Bags is Social D's guitar player (for whom the song is written), I was just jamming out to Live Fast and that's what

  13. Oh for sure, in regards to getting the facts straight! I love getting it down to the T, I hate replicas that aren’t remotely close to the real thing. Whether we’re talking about instruments or sports jerseys. In regards to the name, it’s actually a reference to Jonny Two Bags, the 2nd guitarist in Social Distortion, and not the Vandals song. Although Vandals are sweet too!

  14. Thanks! All we want is to get the facts straight! I must ask do you actually have the blues? Does it make you sad? Does it bring you down? Lol I was just jamming out to Live Fast this morning. Fantastic album.

  15. Exactly. Boring to watch a recording of bands lip syncing. Pretty pointless if you ask me

  16. Yeah they either try too hard (pretentious artistic stuff - think The Weekend) or none at all (blink 182 - Bored To Death) The death of the music video might be the saddest thing honestly, they were iconic for so many decades. It was a big part of Blink too, all the way from Dammit/ATST to I Miss You/Always. I don't think they'd be the same without it.

  17. This was brought up to me by another user and its what prompted me to do this thread. I've heavily been into Green Day since I was 13, and given the gearhead that I am I was immediately drawn to the guitars. This thread is to basically document all of the strats that Billie Joe played through the years, starting here: 1. Fernandes Strat RST-50 (Blue) - Given to Billie by his mom for his 10th birthday, who saved up all of her waitressing tips to buy it for him. It was purchased from Armstrong's guitar teacher, George Cole in the early 80's. Sometime before or during the formation Gr

  20. This is exactly how I feel. I don't listen to NFG much anymore, but I absolutely loved them when I was a teenager. And I still love MCS, but I don't think of them as pop punk.

  21. While I definitely think NFG are more pop punk than MCS, MCS is a better band it literally every way so, this is a fail in my eyes.
