    No, no, you have it wrong, the lyrics go, "the timing, the structure, did you hear, he fucked her?"

    I just saw the most ambiguous headline in the news ever. Alien-Planet Mappers Tackle 'Ninja' Worlds, Other Challenges

    Furthermore, the first sentence says, "Mapping the surface features of farflung alien planet is a tough task, as a simple example illustrates."

    1. farflung isn't a really a word
    2. I don't need a simple example to tell me how hard of an endeavor such a thing must be!

    Wrongity wrong with wrong sauce. The Ramones are the anti-boy-band.

    The Ramones invented an entire subgenre of music, made a grip of classic albums, and inspired three generations of rock and roll bands. Blink 182 wrote a bunch of irritating novelty hits that were played on MTV reality shows for about 5 years.

    You know Blink 182 is still making hit music 20 years later? I don't buy your opinion of the Ramones, lyrically and structurally they are no different. They are all a look.

    That's ok, we can agree to disagree and I will continue to be right and you will continue to be completely wrong.

    Blink 182 also helped create a sub genre of music during a period that was dominated by Grunge. Your point isn't valid, ~P ~Q

    what are you're thoughts on The Strokes?


    (the strokes are a very very guilty pleasure of mine... the wife HATES them, but I at first hate-listened to them, and eventually was smitten).

    What genre did Blink invent? And they were breaking as grunge was dying (in the case of Cobain that statement is quite literal).

    Pop-Punk, which was paved by The Ramones. So if you are a fan of The Ramones, blame yourself.

    Blink 182 was to pop punk what Vanilla Ice was to hip hop

    Sorry, missed you said it was a sub-genre and not a genre. Yeah, well Creed was part of the post-grunge era and we know how that went.

    That is ridiculous and you can't even back that up with anything. Who is more apt to be considered pop punk? Green Day? They both came out of the same area around the same time period.

    The late 90s are the worst time for music ever, particularly in the pop charts. I would rather listen to a million Justin Biebers and Nicki Minaj's than Creed, LFO, Good Charlotte, etc.

    what?! I mean it's in Cleveland... doesn't that make perfect sense and just make you want to go there? (10) :happy:



    so were the Sex Pistols and they literally could barely even play instruments but look what happened with Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood. The Ramones and Sex Pistols were like US/UK doppelgangers of a sort and everything considered punk, grunge, etc can be traced back to those two bands (among others of course). Blink 182, Green Day, Good Charlotte and tons of other shitty bands are mere flimsy impersonations of the real punk aesthetic. Westwood herself claims everything they did began with politics... not music, style or image.

    and today it's a fucking shit show... I mean if there is any sign that the world is coming to and end it's Ke$ha. But at least there are still Jack Whites and The Black Keys and such... meaning actual musicians who actually play instruments.
