Basically another band hurting what people can call good music and punk rock in this world today.
Steve: Thats just lame man
Jim: Well...(long pause trying to come up with a clever and orginal comeback) your gay!! (Using the word "gay" as an insult because to be "pUnK rAwK" you have to be homophobic)
They got their fame from Purevolume.com and Myspace.com
Really guys, it's not about what genre they are. Whether they're emo/punk/rock/alternative, whatever.
The point is, it's good music.
Boys Like Girls is my favorite band
They are a self-proclaimed emo band, which is exactly on the mark. People often mistake punk and emo. BLG knows they're not punk. They get influence from punk music..but that's about it.
The band was really good when it was underground and stilll fresh back in 2006, but they're getting bigger and starting to sell out. They're crowds have become largely scene.
