    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.

    No. Green Day started in the Bay area in the late 80s. They were part of the Giman St scene which has roots going back to the early days of punk. Blink 182 started in Southern California the mid 90s after Green Day had already hit

    Punk came from America, Not England. Find on You Tube Jeffery Lewis' History of Punk.

    You're being ridiculous, Mudvayne is like the best band of the 20th century.

    Ok, well, whatever The Ramones still suck and both Green Day and Blink 182 are far superior. As musicians and songwriters there is no comparison in my book.

    Oh god, Mudvayne. I don't know if I even remember what they sounded like, just that they looked ridiculous.

    I do remember Papa Roach, though.
