I've heard Kim Deal say a lot of poo poo about Black Francis but him being misogynist is new. I think he's just a general, all purpose rear end in a top hat, like J Mascis.

They say, "you mean it's just sounds?" thinking that for something to just be a sound is to be useless, whereas I love sounds just as they are, and I have no need for them to be anything more than what they are.


"Ed Sheeran sounds like Bright Eyes" is an observation I would never expect to evaluate. I'm pretty familiar with Bright Eyes, and I can maybe identify Ed Sheeran based on a couple of songs I know from the radio...but I just don't see it. Bright Eyes is like emo mixed with John Prine, and Ed Sheeran just sounds like your everyday sweaty R&B mixed with folk-I-guess. That's just my own observation though. I'm willing to hear examples supporting the idea that there is a connection to be made between the two.

Because when I was in college, Bright Eyes’ fanbase was mopey girls and scene boys trying to get laid.

Well if the year 1981 is included then the answer is Siouxsie and the Banshees since Juju came out in June '81 and that's the best album ever.

-Influenced and supported countless other artists
-Universally respected by their peers

In 2006 when I was 15 I went to a Coheed and Cambria/Fall of Troy/Clutch show and the Clutch fans were all miserable-looking bald guys in their thirties who left before the other two bands played so it makes sense that dudes on SA like them.

there's like 50 bands all of this applies to. you're basically just saying 'has some level of integrity'.

Pavement's last couple albums were lazy as gently caress and while they're fine, they really only had two great records (CRCR and Wowee Zowee)

You could maybe make an argument for Beck. He captures the junky, random mess of crap that America consists of pretty well

I know The Offspring isn't really a rock band, but that's my answer. Most of the rock/metal I enjoy is from bands founded in 1981 (checking Wikipedia, a drat fine complement of bands were founded in that exact year) and earlier. I listen to a decent amount of extreme metal (grindcore, brutal death metal, slam), but it isn't my bread-and-butter. And I couldn't care less about the 90's grunge scene.

Skatepunk/pop punk is just comfortable, filled with catchy melodies and just the right amount of energy. And The Offspring is just about the only one in the genre that can fill an entire 90 minute set with truly memorable songs.

How is a punk rock band not a rock band?

There's always been more of a distinction between punk and rock than between rock and metal. The culture and sound is more its own thing. But of course, it is part of the broader "upbeat electric guitar and drums" paradigm.

(inb4 people show a billion examples of punk/metal crossover and I look like even more of a pompous rear end)
