Punk changed. It's not dead, but the name is being abused. Good punk, the old stuff, like MDC, The Clash, Misfits, Subhumans, Dead Kennedys etc., are being pissed on by bands like Blink-182
or Good Charlotte
. Although bands like Blink and GC are called punk, they don't have the punk feel. They just feel poseurish. If they're reading this :Dressing punk doesn't make you punk.
Classic Punk - MDC, The Clash, The Misfits, Dead Kennedys, Subhumans, Vice Squad, The Damned, Crass, Toxic Narcotic, Toy Dolls, The Ramones, Adicts, Lower Class Brats, etc.
Posuer Punk - Blink 182, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, Green Day, etc.
Recent, but real punk - Pennywise, NOFX, Rancid, etc.
A superstitious belief that food can remain in contact with the ground (no matter what's on it...?) and still be edible.
*Eddie drops a rasberry onto dogcrap by accident while walking with Bill*
Eddie - *picks up rasberry and eats it*
Bill - What the?
Why did you eat that??? Naaasty...
Eddie - Five second rule.
A game created at Oak Ave. It envolves 3-infinite(the more the better) players. It's basically tackle football without the rules. The players have one person "donate" their shoe for the session; the donator throws it up into the air; whoever catches it runs like hell; he gets tackled (and that's that). Althought there are some rules that are followed (IE no biting, hair-pulling) it's mostly anything goes
. There are exceptional rules that apply to people with glasses, but they are optional.
Player one starts a shoe ball
P1- Hey, wanna play shoe-ba...
P2- *tackles P1 who has the shoe*
P1- I'll take that as a "yes"
The RIAA (I don't need to tell you what it stands for) used to be helpful. They decided what the speed for the vinals should be, and that was important. Now, however, they sue people for stealing songs from them. I spent more money on music now that I got a few songs from P2P. I baught a few ramones CDs that I enjoy thanks to P2P. The RIAA stops opportunities like these by sueing people, (mostly uploaders) for thousands of dollars mercilesly. I read from an excellent source that the RIAA sued a 12 year old girl for about 15k. I honestly doubt the RIAA gave the artist that had their music "stolen" the 15 grand. THAT's stealing.
All in all, I'd define the RIAA as efficient robbers.
The RIAA sued a preteen. I hope they enjoyed the fat cigars they baught with that money.
Greatest band in the universe? Passionate lyrics??? What the hell have you people been smoking? Bono thinks he's friggin
