I remember when bands like this were more into A Day to Remember and All Time Low than they were The Wonder Years and The Story So Far.

It's ok.

Definitely better than TSSF (but that's not saying much.)

Probs wont be listening again. The singer reminds me a little of Soupy which is good, but it goes on for too long/lacks a real hook. I wish TWY would stop getting lumped in with shitty bands like TSSF, Man Overboard, etc.

I'm not into any of the bands I mentioned in that post. More into pop-punk like this:

My point was that ripping off bands like TWY/Handguns/TSSF just seems like the newest trend for kids who used to be in luv with A Day to Remember to hop on now.

you know i listened to milo goes to college the other day for the first time in a long while--that album is like uncomfortably misogynistic. milo has the biggest case of nice guy syndrome ever. it's truly a shock he didn't go around in fedoras all day.

As much as I agree with all this, it's still a really solid album. Just like Weezer's Pinkerton.

How come you love TWY so much?
A lot of people I know are in love with TSSF.

Their lyrics are better, their songs are structured better, they have a better singer, they have more memorable guitar lines, they have more memorable chorus', shamelessly over the top pop punk bridges, and probably most importantly - each album so far has been a huge step up, as opposed to just more of the same shit.

They're not my favourite band or anything, I just find them favourable in comparison to most other bands of the same(ish) genre.

It's ironic and self aware.


That's how I rationalize it.

i used to rationalize the horrible lyrics in "i'm not a loser" all kinds of ways, but i've come to accept milo was just a little shit. i know he's grown up (despite his wishes to the contrary), but yeah back then he sucked.

Also you realize that I'm Not a Loser is stuff being said to him, not him saying stuff to others right? It's not his POV.

that's what they say, but it simply does not make sense in the context of the song.

the entire song is from milo's point of view, and the homophobic slurs are immediately after "you arrogant asshole"; if milo's playing the nerdy loser type then who tf would call him an arrogant asshole? i mean heck, in the beginning of the song he says he's made fun of for his pants being too loose + saggy, so why would anyone tell him "yr pants are too tight you ****ing homo?" it's nice to think that he wasn't just a gigantic homophobic turd at the time of the album, but i don't buy it.

I've always interpreted the lyrics as following his responses to what others say in an effort to stop being made fun of, and then what people said when he changed his style/attitude.

Also, who said that nerdy kids can't be arrogant assholes? Some girl in my AP Literature class reviles in telling people they're wrong, and has cats and watches Star Trek to a religious degree. She wants to go to a "dumb college" so she can be the smartest person there. She's an arrogant asshole.

i mean like if he's the one getting called a loser all the time, he wouldn't be getting called "arrogant asshole" by the kool kids--only by other losers who aren't as smart as him.

like i said, you can try to rationalize the lyrics however you want but once you put yr pro-descendents bias aside, it's pretty obvious it's just casual hompphobia.

you guys do realize that not only has milo apologized for the lyrics, but when they played it live in more recent years he changed the homophobic parts? clearly the reason "you fucking gay" was included in the recording is because young milo thought that was a dece insult and now he feels guilty.

the lyrics are homophobic and if you deny that despite all the evidence then yr really a goofball.
