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

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 yo

time for Halsey to make a pop punk album too

MGK pop punk > Blink with Skiba pop punk

I think they’re both missing the same key thing: dynamic. It’s all so flat. So if it has to be that one is better than the other, I give the nod to the veterans who’s body of work I enjoy. I hate MGK, but that’s only cause I live in Eminem’s backyard. If he sparks a new want for pop punk, fuck yeah. Just don’t think he’s quite as good as blink featuring the hired guns. Both of his songs are super derivative, and when bloody valentine comes on all I hear is Brand New. So consider this a letter that ain’t M G or K. Everyone that’s on this MGK pop punk dick should just find an album by a band they really used to love in high school that you didn’t ever listen to for whatever reason and pretend it’s new.

I know tone doesn't come across well on the internet, but whether you're German or not, it was intended to be a playful`comment, not an attack.

Whoa whoa whoa. Nobody better be trying to say MGK is better than Skiba. Yes it’s true that Skiba is the guitarist of choice for this iteration of blink, but he doesn’t really write any of it. Almost everything Skiba wrote with AK3 is genius. This isn’t about MGK vs. Skiba. This is MGK’s pop punk vs. blinks current pop punk. Don’t step out of line.

The guitar on bloody valentine sounds a lot like “Logan To Government Center”. I say derivative because the guitar sounds like everything a young pop punk fan in 2001 played once they learned power chords and tried to write a song. Which isn’t necessarily bad, but if we’re making arguments for whether MGK is better than what blink is right now, I think it’s important to consider.

It's a typical 3 power chord chug, comparing it to early BN is a heck of a weird stretch lol, I get what you're saying though.

I don't really hear Brand New.  I think it sounds like it's own thing with all the pop punk influences in there, which is why it's kinda interesting.

Paramore ft. The Used and a touch of blink is really the influences I draw.

I wouldn't say MGK is better than Skiba, but when you factor in how good Skiba was in the past in Alk3 and how bad he is with Blink...it won't be as far off as you'd think...

I’m so sick of hearing people say stuff like this. He’s only with the band so they have a guitarist on stage and so they can remain a “three-piece”. They even play guitar tracks through the PA and turn Matt’s guitar down.  He has very little control in blink, if any at all. Think of him as the George Harrison of blink. AK3’s last album, which was made and released after Matt joined blink, is the best album they’ve made in a very long time. Begging the question “is it really Matt’s fault?” I personally think it isn’t. I think blink would sound exactly the same regardless of who they recruited to hold the guitar on stage.

I didn't say it was his fault, except for the not great at guitar parts, having no energy on stage, and lashing out at fans #justiceformike.  Besides that, he doesn't have much say in blink is pretty clear.

Well he’s never been much of a stage presence. I’ve seen AK3 about 49 times since 2000, and he’s always just stood there. He’s actually a lot more active with blink than he ever has been with AK3, even if that isn’t saying much. The real problem is that we all want Tom and we won’t be happy until we get him.
