  1. Do punk aficionados consider Scott a great artist of the genre? I always thought he was mostly a local-band-level drummer who gave Blink's early music an adequate foundation but nothing more than that. But I'm not keyed into the intricacies of that style of drumming, am I missing something?
  2. For sure, I don't think there's any kind of attempt to BrInG bAcK pOp PuNk with her she just has a tiny bit of guitar and energy in her songs haha
  3. As much entertainment as he brought to the boards, this makes me think he's probably in a strong healthy place so good for him.
  4. Pretty fascinating look at this strange scene, and some mentions of Travis: How Chase Hudson, TikTok heartthrob, became Lil Huddy, snarling pop-punk rocker At 18, Hudson counts nearly 30 million followers and over 1 billion views on TikTok, where he’s been building an empire since he was 12. In 2019, he co-founded Hype House, the now-infamous mansion in Los Angeles that’s home to a collective of young TikTok personalities, who cohabitate and produce videos together around the clock. Hype House alumni include teen super-influencers who would volley among one another’s TikTok channels, performing lip-syncs and dance challenges and racking up lucrative sponsorship deals. His big break from the TikTok life came when he was cast in the 2021 film “Downfalls High,” a companion to Machine Gun Kelly’s 2020 chart-topping pop-punk album, “Tickets to My Downfall.” In the same week that “Downfalls High” first dropped, Lil Huddy became Mersel’s first signing — despite the fact that he only had a few scrappy demos to his name. Hudson is far from the only TikTok star who’s sought to parlay insta-fame into a music career. In 2020, Jxdn penned a deal with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker’s DTA Records.
  5. I actually like Olivia Rodrigo much more than anybody I've heard in this strange Nu Pop Punk (did I just coin that phrase?) world.
  6. It's weird, I don't know how to describe it exactly but this "nu pop punk" stuff just doesn't even seem real to me. It feels like some industry players like Travis are just shaping random TikTok personalities into carefully curated pop-punk clones. Yes, I know, tons of 00s pop punk bands were inauthentic as well, including Blink themselves in some ways. But at that time it felt like the industry plucking up pop-punk bands from the pop-punk world and making them bright and shiny for mass consumption. This feels more like the industry plucking up people who have nothing to do with that world and putting them into pop-punk Halloween costumes.
  7. I follow SNL similarly to how I follow Blink, almost like a sports team that I always root for even when they're down, and yeah that episode was an embarrassment. Never seen an entire episode just pander to someone like that.
  8. hahahah I just LOLed at that moment even though I knew it was coming. It seriously looks/sounds like the entire performance EXCEPT for Tom's vocals are prerecorded. Yeesh.
  9. Hearing Tom and Mark's voices together again the first time I listened to Up All Night was one of my favorite music experiences I've ever had haha.
  10. That was my favorite back then and it has stood the test of time for me. Absolutely love it.
  11. Oh yeah! I remember it felt like a big deal because Tom was being interviewed.
