Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

Find out the chords, and play them as power chords with vivacious drumming and amped-up vocals.

burning down the house is a good one

but change it to something like

burning down the system!

If you're thinking of the Talking Heads, why not do Psycho Killer? It's almost punk already.

that song makes me want to shoot myself.


Well you see, the song is about shooting rich kids, so maybe it is actually about suicide. hmm...

You have an opinion but you happen to be wrong. Non of those are true.

dude tim armstrong is destroying the punk scene, so mike is right about that. matt freeman is a damn good bassist sorry mike2 he is good, but lars fredirikson is a crazy tweaker. as i said in another post, thats getting a LOT of flamming, and it seems to always revolve around mr punx rawx tim armstrong, my friend saw lars fredirikson hitting on a 14 year old chick and he was actin like a crazy tweaker. oh and by the way, do any of you know lars fredirikson? umm NO you dont. so you dont know if he quit drugs or not. and everyone i know who has seen lars frediriskon in person, said he is a crazy tweaker.

Opinions are niether right nor are they wrong. Factual information is the only thing that is as black and white as such arguements of write or wrong. Opinions are somones personal beliefes, preference, or thoughts so with such being said you can not have a wrong opinion.

You serious sargasm about what you said about me?


I said I keep mistaking you for another user who also happens to have 'tim armstrong' in his name. What's there to be serious about?

not for the sake of arguing but when i saw rancid matt used his fingers...alot. esspecially on that solo. tim is horrible and destroying the punk scene, and lars in my opinion is better in the bastards(i hated the viking, not as impressive as the self-titled) and is on drugs. the show i saw him at was postponed like two months cause he od'd or went into some kind of seizer in cananda a day or two before the show i was goin to.

and mike 2 sorry the way i throw gay, fags, and queers around makes you uneasy. not my fault you don't like the way i speak. i'm no homophope, i don't hate gay people, i'm just not PC bros. sorry i can't fit into your american style of life.
