“Punk” Goes Retarded
Punk Goes Pop 5! Featuring: Memphis May Fire, Upon This Dawning, Mayday Parade, We Came As Romans, Like Moths To Flames, Breathe Carolina, Forever The Sickest Kids, Issues, The Maine, Crown The Empire, Craig Owens, The Word Alive, Secrets.
Now my question is, which one of these bands is the punk one?
This shit is so annoying. The fact that this music is called “punk” drives me insane. Obviously, bands like Sum 41, Sugarcult, etc. get flack for being called pop-punk or whatever, but they actually stick to a punk format.
Anybody who believes that “pop punk” isn’t what the original punk rock was is wrong. Listen to “Rock And Roll High School”, “Blitzkrieg Bop”, “Anarchy In the U.K.”, “Rockin’ The Casbah”, all sound poppy as fuck. It’s all pop punk, you farts.
Back to the original subject, how the hell can anyone say We Came As Romans or The Word Alive are anything even slightly resembling pop punk, or for that matter, punk at all? I’m wondering how long it’s going to be before we’re seeing the release of Punk Goes Punk, where all these “punk” bands do cover of punk rock songs. That’ll be a gas.
There aren’t enough trees in the world to print a book about how to be a successful human being.
Every blue moon I end up killing a bug with some spray that isn’t intended to be an insect killer. Like if there’s a spider on the ceiling in the corner, and I spray that nigga with some Lemon Pledge. Some irrational part of my brain is like
“what if the Lemon Pledge mutates the spider to 30x its normal size instantaneously… has anyone soaked a spider in furniture polish before.. what am I about to do?”
But then the spider runs and dies a slow death.
Oh, well hi there Jennifer Lawrence in “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.

I have no idea what this photo is all about. This scene wasn’t in the movie, it’s not in any deleted scene montages, and it’s not online anywhere.
