The Tom Delonge Thread


Recommended Posts

If I go track by track and choose that way:

1.    Feeling This vs. First Time = Feeling This 
2.    Obvious vs. Happy Days = Happy Days
3.    I Miss You vs. Heaven = Heaven
4.    Violence vs. Darkside = Darkside
5.    Stockholm vs. BIOMY = Stockholm
6.    Down vs. GD = Down
7.    The Fallen vs. Run Away = Run Away
8.    Go vs. Black Rain = Go
9.    Asthenia vs. IRWIHY = Asthenia
10.   Always vs. PTG = PTG
11.   Easy Target vs. NHTSO = NHTSO
12.   All of This vs. Ransom = Ransom
13.   Heres Your Letter vs. OSES = HYL
14.   Im Lost Without You vs. Hungover You = Hungover You
15.   Not Now vs. RTFM = Not Now

Untitled= 7
NINE= 8

It's close, but Nine wins for me currently.

What people think Boxcar Racer would be like           What it would actually be like  

The only way Tom should be allowed back in the band is if he climbs that same street light to impress Mark this time.   *broken ankles are optional.

Been saying it for years.

It's not overrated you bitch.

I will say I listen to Neighborhoods more but that's nothing to do with where I'd rank Untitled.

I don't think there's ever been an album I've listened to more on my walkman. It was perfection because you could just skip the last track and start over.

I will say songs like I Miss You get overrated now (still a great song) but ones like Asthenia, Easy Target, Stockholm get mad undervalued. They're masterful.

This is so dumb it's incomprehensible.

I hope you're trolling, otherwise, seek help.

Oh this is interesting!  I went through and some of the matchups are unlucky.  For example I am so sick of Down, but it being matched up with GD is tough.  Pin the Grenade against Down? I'd never listen to Down again hahah.

My only real disagreements are the Always/ILWY matchups.  I have always loved those songs, kinda wish they weren't sandwiched together at the end and more spread out.

At what sense does it make to go side-by-side like that? Ever? Especially since some albums best songs are at the beginning/middle some are at the end, and with the interludes too??  Come on, my guys.

Oh, it's definitely overrated and gets a lot of the praise because it was a huge divergence from what they previously released. I'm not saying it was shit ... just that it'd be a mediocre release from any other band at the time. There wasn't anything really ground breaking about it like what was seen with Enema or even Greenday's Dookie and American Idiot.

I felt the same way on that one, but given the length just couldn't give GD the W. Feeling This was lucky to go up against First Time, that is the only Untitled song that would win that matchup.

That's so untrue my jaded old dude, the divergence is what got it so talked about sure, but they were already massive and going to get talked about regardless.

Feeling This?  How can you say that wasn't ground breaking for blink at the time?  It was like a leadup of all their previous work and into a new heavier phase.  The production is perfect.

Always? Here's Your Letter? Stockholm Syndrome? Asthenia? Violence? This is some of their best work, and a step above any of the competition in the emo-heavy pop punk category.

Fuck your American Idiot, THAT was overrated as hell because it was a political piece from Green Day with glossy production and the beginning of the end for them (I guess Untitled was for Blink too..).

Feeling This was just taking advantage of layering.

A.I. was a concept album and to that end it served itself well.

Except Green Day could go sell out stadiums still, and still have their classic lineup in place. Seems you’re just a hater because someone is better than your beloved blink. I love blink a hell of a lot more than GD, but get your head out of your ass. GD is far more talented, and AI is filled with way better songs, and better production. It’s also heavier, since you wanna play the “heavy” card for untitled lolz. What a joke

What time is it over where you're at? It sounds like it's time to possibly get to bed.

American Idiot is pure sellout cheese, I love that album, I love the sell out cheese, but at least Blink kept it unique and outside of the norm, AI for Green Day is just like Dani California for RHCP, Beverly Hills for Weezer.. It's not that they're bad, but it's a distinct move they all make to leave their raw goodness/purity behind.

It’s 1:20 pm right now. I enjoy the laughs you provide to get me through the work day.

What are you even talking about? Stop projecting.

I love Green Day about as much as I do Blink, saying they're "more talented" is a bit lame though, they're both great songwriters in their own rights, and both revolutionized the genre.  I would never say Green Day is more talented, but they wrote more popularized songs.. That doesn't equate to "talent".  Not that I care to go down this path of argument either.

I wasn't using "heavy" as an equivalent to "being good" so I really don't know what you're getting at.

Also this is all objective (subjective? objective? help me out @Patient #48273) well whatever the hell, I loved American Idiot and has some of my favorite songs on there (She's a Rebel, Give me Novacaine, Jesus of Suburbia, Holiday, Letterbomb).  I still wouldn't be crowning it as much as people do or putting down Untitled because of it.  I'd much rather give Untitled unlimited spins than AI.  I'd much rather give both's older albums a playlist to spin than either.
