The only thing worse than blink hanging around on threads is bands like Sum 41 hanging around.

Like seriously? You guys wrote 2 songs.  Let blink and green day be the only ones to do this.

Sum 41's last show I saw was 100 times better than the last blink show I saw. Not even a comparison.

That's cool, that they still tour, because of 2 songs. Which aged terribly

Lol sum 41 have like 3 or 4 really good albums. Best shows I've gone to have been sum 41 and new found glory.  Blink has been very lackluster for a long time now. Sad to think about actually.

Eh I liked Chuck and the new album. Obviously I prefer blink as this isn't sum41online.com. But "I need a g!rl that I can train" hasn't passed the test of time either.

Either way, Sum 41 puts up a much better show these days in smaller venues.

Not the biggest fan of Sum 41's recent album but it's at least genuine. Sum 41 have about 3-4 hits that haven't aged well, but that doesn't take away from the rest of their music. Chuck is one of my all time favourite albums. Screaming Bloody Murder is pretty damn good too IMO. If there's anything California should've followed it's Sum 41's Screaming Bloody Murder album. Not on about the actual sound or style of it but they just gave no flying fucks about trying to write poppy mainstream stuff.

They just wanted to write whatever they wanted to write. It's far from a perfect album but it's a damn good one. They brought in a new guitarist and all that. It wasn't the same as it was with their original lead guitarist but man they just didn't give a shit. Love that album. But I guess I see a similar thing regarding Sum 41's Underclass Hero album. They went from Chuck to that.

I mean you could consider Chuck the smiley face/Neighborhoods version of their catalogue. Then it all changed when the lead guitarist left and Underclass Hero went way more pop punk. It was very backwards when talking about progression. Just like blink going from smiley face/Neighborhoods to California. Underclass Hero was very samey just like California. Probably had some better riffs than California though. Hopefully blink's next album follows a similar pattern and leaves the generic pop punk stuff behind like Sum 41 did with Screaming Bloody Murder.

Sum 41 is live 183 times better than Blink.

This is true.  I love going to blink shows, but they have never been particularly great at the live show, Sum 41 really surprised me with how great they sounded live the one time I saw them.

To each their own, I have no experience at their live show and am mostly trolling, I just find Sum 41, Offspring (post smash), Fall Out Boy, etc to be the most cheesy repetitive bands ever as they age.

As Fall Out Boy sound nothing like they used to do I can't see how you see them as repetitive

They would fall under cheesy.  Centuries is one of the worst popular songs that was stuck on the radio for a while as is all their new age stuff.

Taking Back Sunday is probably the only one i can think of from that timeframe that has still survived and making quality new music.

Blink is no better. They've joined the rest of them unless they have a major redemption here. Green Day is a shell. The rest are dead or a joke like Fall Out Boy.  Honestly, Goldfinger's latest was a decent surprise but still just Goldfinger at the end of the day.

All Killer, No Filler and DTLI have aged well IMO. Never got into Chuck so can’t comment. Makes No Difference also aged well.

Except for the part where it didn't age well, and was never that good to begin with.

Didn't Fred come back for a couple more albums? Either way, Happiness Is and Tidal Wave were as good as their initial releases imo.

They had longevity as well, forgot about them.

Do they open and close with Fat Lip?

Nah, Fat Lip was in the middle of their setlist if I recall. Only played it once too.

Well good for them, may we storm through the parties like our names were El Nino for another 20 some years.
