Early blink-182. I actually really like what he's doing, and I'm pretty sure Sum 41's singer uses this technique to some extent in EVERY FREAKIN' SONG! hahaha although I think part of that is because the technique comes very naturally to him.

Anyway so I'm willing to be it's safe if used properly and not overdoing it, but I want to make sure. Any tips to learning how to do this as well?

I'm unsure of the question, what's unsafe about loud distortion?

if you're referring to if it's safe to play loud then yes and no. If you're doing it frequently gigging, get some ear plugs?

Am I completely missing the point?

...?

Wait... I have no idea what we're talking about hahahaha

Okay so I'm talking about Mark's vocals, mainly during the chorus. It's not normal singing he has a lot of roughness but it's not "metal-ly" at all. Yes?

Id say its potentially dangerous, if you sing too loud your nose could fall off. The singer in my band usually has some sellotape around his face just in case.

and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do
