Yea, allot of it is simple, but I think its definitely stereotyped that way. Theirs lots of punk bands with good solos and leads. Bad religion is one that comes to mind. And when has music became only good if its complicated, many people seem to think that way.

because a lot of the mainstream 'punk' is simple. some people would categorize bands like blink, Greenday and The All American Rejects as punk
though I'm a fan of pop punk, I know the difference
it's simply a lack of understanding.
similar to the way a lot of outsiders assume that all hip hop/rap is violent and derogatory towards women

I'd go with lack of knowledge and understanding as a reason for that as well. If you actually try to play some of that stuff, you'll find it has to be absolutely tight in order to sound good. If someone is sloppy, it's noticed in a big way.

It's just snobbery, really...party on

It's just the aftermath of the 80's shred era. After that, many guitar players seem to think that someone doesn't shred, then they're not worth sh*t. I consider myself to be lucky, as I've found that I enjoy music as long as it's well made, be it simple to play or not.

Well, the main idea of punk is that you don't have to spend years and years learning how to play faster than others, just gather some friends, have fun and make music. It's not really about the skills, it's about the attitude.

Metallica sucks!

Punk is easy.

Get over it.

To me punk is less about individual practice and technique but rahter your bands practice and how the band works together. Good punk bands practice tremendously to be as tight as they can be. Also a lot of punk drummers are way more skilled than your average yngwie fan will care to notice. The other cool thing about punk is that most people who listen to punk, and play punk guitar in their basement will end up forming a band and writing original songs. I don't think this happens as often for the shredders.

Okay, I was just saying some punk bands have good leads regardless that the rhythm guitarist is just playing a bunch of power chords. To me punk is just another genre of music. It didn't get started because a bunch of people were to lazy to become skilled guitarists. My points aside, I guess I was bound to get some disagreeable responses. And I bet no one who responded has even listened to Bad Religion.

If only summer rain would fall, on the houses and the boulevards
And the sidewalk bagatelles, it's like a dream
With the roar of cars and the lulling of the cafe bars,
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine...

I never said they were underground.. they obviously aren't. That wasn't even my point, my point was people who label it as shit have barely touched the surface of listening to it.
#15
Do you honestly think that people in the punk forum have "barely touched the surface of listening to it?"

I own ALL of Bad Religion's studio albums. ALL of them. Bad Religion's leads are simple. Why do their leads matter so much to you?

just because bad religion has leads doesn't make them good leads.

the replacements stand out to me as a punk band with good solos/riffs.

To a place where we both know,

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.
