and I know most hate towards pop punk is because it ignores the punk ideology, but I don't give a shit what a band believes in if the music doesn't hold up. Why listen to something that preaches a punk lifestyle if I can't relate to it in the first place?
most pop punk is in no way trying to be real punk rock, so calling it "fake" or "poseur" punk is complete idiocy. It's catchier and more lighthearted in terms of lyrical content too. I just never got the appeal of most "real" punk. Bad Religion is amazing, but that's about where my interest ends.
From listening to Clash, Sex Pistols and The Cure I really don't get why people think pop punk isn't punk. Punk rock was never a particularly abrasive style to begin with, just unconventional. It seems now that when hardcore punk came in the standard for 'what is punk' got re-set.
Bro.. The punk bands I see in your library are Bad Brains, Crass and 7Seconds. If you only consider those hardcore bands as punk, then you have absolutely no clue what punk rock is. Please download the first album from the Ramones.
Sure, man. Goelian has never heard of any of the punk bands I listen to and goes to extreme lengths to disguise his love of commercial pop music as an appreciation of 'true punk'.
