New generation of pop punk


Recommended Posts

Yeah I'm not really feeling these Deluxe "Sold Out" songs as much...thank God they were able to recognize that and not make an ENTIRE DELUXE ALBUM to overdo the amount of similar songs written.

 

Can't Look Back is a keeper though.  Cool to see more features/influences.

do we even have members under 18 here? don't tell feeling_this...

Travis and MGK did the album live,   

Travis drumming is also 10X better on this than current blink 183 what the HELL.  Why did they do this stupid Goldfinger mush on California is beyond me, Travis is still king.

Do you think it's Mark being controlly/dumb not letting Travis produce? Or the both of them would be beautiful considering Motion City and this.

This is pretty sweet except the guitar riff is very off putting. Chorus is great though, the rest of the album is missing great choruses like this.

See I'm in the opposite camp, I think the non traditional choruses is what makes this album stand out, less formulaic.

Guitar riff feels like a sum 41 influence

Why can Machine Gun Kelly write more interesting riffs than Mark and Matt is the real question.

Are you sure he wrote them? There’s that Nick Long bloke credited as both a composer and guitar writer on every song and he has a more “rock” songwriting background.

I haven't listened to it, is there a lot of autotune on it as well? 

It just doesn't really sound like anything particularly personal or real, pop music with some guitars really. He seems like a sellable face. I ain't complaining because I want a genre resurgence.

I think the real question is why is Jan so desperate for this to be a MGK vs blink battle? Just enjoy it for what it is. Everybody else is able too. Constantly trying to make blink look bad by comparison to the MGK album just comes across as cringy and sad.

I’m not going to listen to this, I’m sure it’s cheesy and horrible as all hell. MGK didn’t write the guitars so don’t give him credit for that. And I’m about as big of a fan of Travis as you can possibly be. Still, not enough to overlook the cringe fest that is MGK. MGK did have a nice hair transplant though, I’ll give him credit for that!

Outside of Blink, I wasn't a big fan of the early 00's era of MTV pop punk. So, this isn't for me. I don't necessarily have any hate for it or feel the need to shit on it, I guess but I just don't have any real interest in listening to it. At least not any more than any other band from that style. I will say this though, even if it is made for radio pop music, it's not necessarily a bad thing that main stream music is pushed in a more instrument-centric direction as that opens the doors for other bands to move in, like it did after 80s pop.

Just shut up and listen to it, my God, why speculate your thoughts before even giving it a listen?  I don't think any of us are MGK fans that are enjoying it or surprised by it.

I wasn't speculating on it. I was praising it for bringing guitar-centric music to the forefront of mainstream music again.

Mate you decide a blink song is shit and write it off based on the song title alone. Ease up on the hypocrisy a little.

I didn’t even know what a Machine Gun Kelly was prior to listening. It’s simply a great pop punk album. Something I haven’t said in ages. Really glad I checked it out

On the title track chorus, his voice reminds me of Deryck from Sum 41 a little bit

Pop punk became too emo since the great ones were around. I like some new bands, but they aren't real pop punk. MGK captured the sound I love, this music just makes me so happy. The emo indie stuff I never truly loved even though it's pretty good too
