I guess it shows that blink is the perfect middle point. Like it’s diluted down punk rock that still shares the same DNA  as screeching weasel -  but then sets the pedestal for poppy ballads/sensibilities that lead to MCS.

I guess with this comp - it’s like do you want to take the left step ( back into SW, Descendents, Lagwagon etc) or the right step into that more modern pop realm (FOB, MCS). To me, I prefer the DNA of the 90s precursors - rather than what it evolved into. That’s the beauty of music tho. To each their hideous own 

Very well said. I can’t stand the music that it evolved into either. All the pop punk/emo bands that came after blink are absolutely cringeworthy and lame. Fuck Fall Out Boy!

Let's be real, someone off the street wouldn't even know what pop punk is so you would just say that you listen to punk rock music.

We need to do more of these battles. They’re good fun. Do a big battle of the bands including the Beatles, nirvana, Queen, REM etc  Yeah I’ll smash my house up when Oasis lose to Nickelback

Use this thread to complain about the tournament and continue arguments from individual battle threads after they get locked. Full list of bands in case you don't want to zoom in on the above ima

Cheers bro. Our boys blink were the sweet spot indeed. Most of what they spawned can get in the bin !

Yeah 'modern pop punk' is truly awful, don't think there's a single band that has drawn me in the slightest.

Paramore if they count and the MGK album are the only ones

Literally two of the worst.

Are All Time Low considered Modern Pop Punk? they've been releasing music for 15+ years now. I'd say they're pop punk legends now. 

Modern in sound, not in time.

I honestly couldn't even think of any of the names that I've heard so I gave up. They've been around, but they're still more like the modern pop punk/post blink than the prime days

I'd say most of the people here consider anything post-2005 to be modern. And then you've got Davey who'd say that  anything after 1995 is modern.

I would say anything after 1979 is modern.

Absolutely, one thing I noticed with this comp though was how many people think that liking bands such as Descendents or Ramones isn't a genuine thing, maybe it was just banter on their part.

Yeah I’m kinda shocked by that. Like blink covered Screeching Weasel and The Descendents - some of their biggest influences. It’s really not out of the realm of possibility for those to be some of our favourite bands haha.

I mean I am a poser, but I’m sure everyone else’s choice was genuine.
