Are we all in agreement that this is a pop punk masterpiece? That chorus is fucking GOLD. Heard this a million times and it doesn’t get old

 

Never heard it ... listening now.

Doubt it’s your thing. You like the original pop punk before blink, sum 41 etc

I don't hate it, I get the appeal ... it's anthemic. You're right though, it's not my thing. I think a lot of the problem is that that particular style of pop punk is really busy. Listen to the intro, there's a lot going on, even with the chorus and that, I think, is what loses me. I always steered more toward the simple. Like I said though, it's not horrible.

Fuck me, this is awesome.

I'm pumped for Travis that he gets to be a part of this. Debuted at #1.

A total genre resurgence. People who don't even know what pop punk is are listening to this and loving it. Kind of like we all stumbled on pop punk back in the day. We didn't seek it out, it came to us

That Neck Deep song just shows why I hate modern pop punk. The only older pop punk band that resembles that type of pop punk is NFG and I can't even get into them outside of about 3-4 songs from their first two albums. I'm glad MGK isn't doing that style of pop punk. He's definitely more listenable for me.

Not my thing either to be honest but it is funny how almost every "If ____ Sounded Like Blink 182" video on youtube is actually doing this style of pop punk, rather than actually sounding like Blink haha

it's nice to see other people talk about this, because I've never super closely related blink to modern pop punk. i can hear the influence, but "modern pop punk" sounds a lot more like an evolution of NFG and they just associate it with blink instead

Thought this wasn't an bad take on a modern pop punk blink-182 cover:

 

This is a good take on turning it into a genre that is much less enjoyable to me haha. But yeah, he did it well and it's a great example of how Blink and pop punk don't necessarily equal each other. I never really got into that later pop punk style.

Just watched the MGK live video, it sounds good. Way better than the crap blink-182 have been giving us live ever since 2009 (although I feel that's more to do with the live mixing for the videos cause even Travis Barker's drums sound like utter shit for blink). But man I wish bands would stop using click tracks.

There's no need for 3 guitars, 1 bass, 1 drum kit and 1 keyboard and backing tracks for this kind of music. Two guitarists (one of them being MGK), 1 bass guitarist and 1 drummer is more than enough.

There's such a push for things to be exactly as perfect as records, robbing live performances of what make them unique. Did you know they can live pitch correct vocal performances now? They can fix your bum notes on the fucking go. It's insane.

Yeah, I don't like it when it's like that. Don't get me wrong, it can sound amazing. Blink sounded so fucking good at that Teen Choice 2004 award thing when they played Down. But all the backing tracks were so low in the mix and it still felt like it was a live performance.

I can get by with that pitch correction thing but it's when the whole performance is so processed that it puts me off listening. And the backing tracks just need to stay low. The second verse of the song Nothing Inside by MGK was almost as bad and comical as hearing Tom's vocal track for I'm Lost Without You when blink did the 10 year anniversary tour for that album.

How much did you listen to..?  I'm inclined to think you only listened to the intro track, which is one of the busier tracks by far.  The rest of the album is pretty diverse from it.

I was talking about the Neck Deep video Scott posted.
