and the new Offspring album has this on it
if he was 21.
Nice shots of Huntington Beach though.
I tried to go further but I couldn't.
Remember Noodles is 64.
Dirty Magic is now on the same album as something called Bumpin' In My Trunk :'(
The really corny bloopy synth? Dexter's rapping? The pre-chorus female vocal? I think I'm just going to stop.
I thought he got the chair?
Sounds like something Kesha rejected for being too irritating. Ye gods.
...when I first heard "Pretty Fly" I thought nobody in their right minds would take to it, so what do I know?
What I DO know is that considering the sort of music they've made over the years, you'd at least expect them to be energetic live. But they're one of the most flat, lifeless live bands I've ever seen. (This is on the basis of having caught them on three occasions at festivals while waiting for something else...)
saw them last year at Leeds and they came second only to Red Hot Chili Peppers in looking completely uninterested. Just a straight run through of the songs, stony faced. Abysmal
it's hilarious, I can't get over it. I've even put on some of their old tunes just for comparison's sake. I kind of think it's sweet as they are all approaching 50, they clearly have been swayed by what's making chart success.
It sounds like Black Eyed Peas!!!
but at the same time, they definitely love it and will play it at all of their gigs from now on
Never liked 'em anyway so I can live with never hearing this ever again.
now you probably say, 'they were shit as well' or something. to be fair i haven't listened to albums by ANY of those bands for probably ten years (minimum) but at the time, loved them
i'm going to pass judgement NOW
REEL BIG FISH - okay somewhere in the middle, a few good songs
THE VANDALS - lots of terrible songs for children like 'Fourteen' BUT MANY GOOD SONGS AND ACTUALLY FUNNY (see the guitar solo for 'An Idea for a Movie'.
THE ATARIS - garbage
GUTTERMOUTH - Terrible, embarrassing, ancient singer humiliated my friend who was trying to interview him, fuck off
THE OFFSPRING - A few good songs, drummer played a half arsed version of the fast beat and wasn't fast enough, not that many good songs
NOFX - my favourites at the time, some great songs, some boring, some embarrassing dross
LAGWAGON - Good, especially at the start, about a million times less lame than most of the Epitaph/Fat Wreck bands. Lots of good songs.
DESCENDENTS/ALL - Good, best & most interesting of the instrumentalists (most of the Epifat bands sounded very similar musically and you could've swapped all the band members around and nobody would've noticed
STRIKE ANYWHERE - I liked 'Change is a Sound' a LOT but now it sounds painfully serious
FRENZAL RHOMB - Fun, possibly liked them more cos they actually had a couple of interesting things compared to other Fat Wreck bands (weird bass playing, Australian). QUITE A FEW GOOD SONGS. Still like to sing 'Wanna boiy yew a grey-hand' sometimes.
if anyone wants to argue about 3rd wave ska bands post below because I have seen literally all of them.
Do tell about this Guttermouth interview.
then started 'interviewing' my friend (who had travelled to Manchester on his own just to do the interview) in the dressing room asking uncomfortable qs as all of the Guttermouth twatty entourage laughed at him.
sometimes totally excellent super good melodic pop punk but I can't get over that time Greg Graffin PhD was on his webcam with his bits out and the pictures ended up all over the punx universe
PULLEY - A few excellent good songs, lots that just totally washed over me. Singer was pro-baseball player
TEN FOOT POLE - One good song
SWINGIN' UTTERS - one good song
DROPKICK MURPHYS - Can't remember any good songs, no idea how they were so high up on the main stage at Reading all the time. A really really shit punx version of the Pogues with no songwriting skills
VOODOO GLOW SKULLS - How I bought two albums when the singer sounds like that I will never know. Didn't sound like any of the other 3rd wave ska bands
I saw Lagwagon last night and they were great! Joey Cape <3. One of the guitarists is fucking massive.
I like it when they're setting up the micstands and it's like lol what're they doing with that one and then the 6 foot 9 man comes out
Recently I went to see Orange Goblin and I thought 'why is the singer always on the drum riser' but he was 6 foot 9 too.
would you like to say what you think about some Epifat bands
Useless ID supported - they were good. One of the guitarists said he didn't speak English.
PENNYWISE - one song repeated abotu a billion times. That song though is good. It's called Bro Hymn.
DEATH BY STEREO - singer has a hilariously dopey singing voice, especially when he sings really high. Some good songs, Lost Boys reference innit.
RANDY - The Hives if they all looked like a bunch of truckers crossed with the hairy bikers.
DEVIATES - Rest assured no-one actually owns anything by these guys, except the 4 songs scattered between punk-o-rama 1 and 10.
98 MUTE - boring
RANCID - several great albums, better when Lars sings. Matt Freeman is a god. They're charging 30 quid for shows in December though - yeah, that's punk.
DILLINGER FOUR - one of the best punk bands ever. All 4 albums are top class, great attitude and comedy timing and a treat to watch live. Triple vocal attack from the nasally one, the gruff one and the fat one.
unless they did when the singer changed. This is my favourite song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDhAhDMGJkU
and yes Dillinger Four are very very good indeed. I remember when I first heard them and thought 'er they don't sound like a Fat Wreck band'
I saw Useless ID supporting Frenzal Rhomb once. The guitarist looked exactly like Eric Melvin. Same hair and everything.
Deviates - yes.
Randy - Good.
I hope everyone joins in and we do every 90s/2000s skate punk band that ever existed.
you dislike all of these bands plus you don't get Bob Dylan.
Your opinion is literally dirt to me.
Even the shit ones have never been as shit as this before.
Offspring 'Smash' and Green Day 'Dookie' were the first two CDs I ever bought. Nothing you can say can take away the love I have for those albums. NOTHING!
Have you heard Days Gone By? It sounds a lot like the Days Like These. :D
I'm beginning to wonder if this is actually just a compilation album of "popular hits of the last decade"
But they were excellent at the recent Ignition shows at SBE.
The reasons Luis stated above are a good start.
what's not to like?
