Music is really reaching all time lows (see what I did there?) with a lot of these shitty bands out there right now. It is sickening how pop punk has “evolved” from such awesome bands like The Ramones, The Buzzcocks and The Undertones to The Descendents and Screeching Weasel (no decline here) to Blink-182, Green Day and New Found Glory to Such Gold, The Wonder Years, Balance and Composure and Title Fight. This seems to follow the same trend as emo when awesome bands like Embrace, Fugazi and Sunny Day Real Estate turned into garbage like Hawthorne Heights and My Chemical Bromance.
Is it just me? Or am I turning into one of those cynical grouches throughout time like how Sabbath and Zeppelin era fans hated the likes of late 80s early 90s hard rock and grunge juggernauts Guns N Roses, Nirvana, Soundgarden etc. And how the punk and hardcore generations can’t seem to agree on anything past Black Flag, Minor Threat, and Bad Brains.
