Great idea, but their definition of "punk" is sort of strange considering what the bands sound like on their myspace.

" “PUNKS” are the youth within our communities that don’t subscribe to more contemporary popular markets, the “underground” of popular culture or the “anti-thesis” of pop culture. "

The first song I've heard is by a band that wears plugs, their singer sings through his nose so much I wanna puke, I has a bad piano intro, and their influences include "Underoath"



This bastardization of the word "punk" to refer to a subculture is getting maddeningly scary.

I know we have these threads every week. But this is just crazy. It's not like calling green day punk.

Pop punk 4 pink sounds like a song the Queers would sing, and we all know what the pink would refer to...

Yeah, punk has become super marketable now. For some reason people think being punk is being cool. It's a buzzword, just like all the other genres being marketed falsely today.
