i've been a weasel fan since about '97 (i'm only 16, can't really get too much farther back than that, haha) but i noticed that most punk fans these days don't even know who they are.
i think they're amazing and should be made known again to all deprived punx.

I don't think they're as popular here as they used to be, but I'm sure everyone has heard of them. There are many threads about them.

I don't like them.

Yeah, they're very well known. That doesn't mean everyone likes em though.
I like Screeching Weasel up to Wiggle.

This is crazy talk! Anthem for a New Tomorrow and How to Make Enemies and Irritate People are both great.

Screeching Weasel is pretty awesome. Though I prefer The Misfits or Minor Threat (btw, nice avatar I_Pwn)

but Rancid is probably higher up on my list... The basslines are f***ing awesome.

I don't know why you would compare Screeching Weasel, The Misfits, Minor Threat, and Rancid.

The kill the musicians version of that song is about as good as pop punk gets.

I don't listen to the Weasel a whole lot anymore though.

why don't you like them?
they were punk, but made it just a little more upbeat than the norm of that era, and pretty much started pop punk (but as we all know, that took a turn for the worse)

i said pretty much, it wasn't a definitive statement.
and the ramones considered themselves Rock N Roll, not punk, even though that's what i consider them to be.

Well I wouldn't say "pretty much" either, since SW's first full-length was 11 years after The Ramones' s/t.
But it doesn't matter. I like really SW. I don't think anyone is complaining that they aren't punx enough. I really wanted to see them play here in Austin a few weeks ago, but I couldn't afford it.

Generally everything past their first album and their last two is really good ****.

I'm curious to hear the new Riverdales album myself.

I listened to them for a while and whenever I got one of their songs stuck in my head it was just annoying. Also, I don't like the vocals or the tones of the instruments, or anything else about them, really. It's not like I hate them or anything, I just don't like them. I have several more reasons, but there's no accounting for taste.

I just got their first album about a month ago and I still can't put it down. There are some not so good songs, but for like what, 40 tracks? There's a really good percentage of nice ones.I don't know why so many people hate it, maybe because they're used to SW as a pop-punk band, hearing a hardcore version isn't the same. You can really hear their 80's punk influences. Murder In The Brady House is pretty cool.. I think My Song might be one of my favorite SW songs ever though. I might be the only person who likes it though.

I think Boogadax3 is their best though, Bark is pretty close, MBH after that.. Anthem is hit and miss, and I lose interest going through Teen Punks. I'll Stop The Rain is pretty gnarly though.

Jesus titty-fucking Christ what the hell is wrong with kids these days?

Why is it that 90% of threads on bands start with "I like (band) and I don't think enough people like (band.) Now let's all discuss (band) since I don't have anything interesting to say on the subject other than 'I like (band.)'"

The lack of originality is so sickening that I feel it necessary to post bold-font curse words.

I like Screeching Weasel, but not as much As my friend, who has a frkn tattoo (of their logo) on his back.

They're ok, I never could really get into them though and I'm a big pop punk fan.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

You're just begging to listen to some Charles Bronson.

Screeching Weasel are one of my favorites. "My Right" is one of my favorite songs, and Boogadaboogadaboogada is probably one of my top five favorite albums.

although powerviolence and thrashcore are derived from hardcore punk, i don't really consider charles bronson to be punk. they're much too metal sounding for me to call them punk.
i guess that's why there are genres like powerviolence...

hmm.. i'm just not big on the real hardcore punk bands (casualties, black flag, bad brains, minor threat, bands like that, are about as hardcore [if you could call it that] as i'll get) so anything that gets really heavy sounds like metal to me.

I'm not a big powerviolence fan or anything, but Charles Bronson doesn't really sound heavy to me. I guess that's just because IMO slower, more dynamic music tends to sound heavier. Some Black Sabbath songs, for example, sounds heavier than most death metal to me, but I know most people would disagree with me on that. Maybe more importantly, most styles of metal tend to have much longer songs and fancy musicianship.
