That's why we all remember what Patti Smith, Richard Hell, Dead Kennedys, the Clash, the Germs, the Adicts, the Misfits, etc all look like. Oh wait. You probably don't.

    A band who started in the late 70s is considered New Wave Punk now?

Well, okay... musically it wasn't bad -- lyrically/vocally, it ****ing sucked.
    umm i suggest you go listen to the album warning it was produced by him and sounds amazing ignorant prick

    I guess it doesn't sound too bad but the only reason these kids got a record is because one of the kids dad is Billie Joe

    I wasn't expecting to enjoy it from looking at them but yeah, they have potential. Reminds me of the new-wave of punk that comes from America: Bouncing Souls, Rancid, Social Distortion etc.

    alright i haven't heard the song yet but i do really wanna say thats true that many of the people around here just says that punk musicians are *****s or worhtless band just because they dont use riffs complex as hell or huge amazing solos and thats be a headstrong (fot not say something worst) so.....im going to hear and them crash them if they're not good....well its true its just more of the same such a shame that there are so few bands that have they own sound and so many "wannabe-bands"

    I kinda agree that the songwriting and vocals sucks, but its not completely bad.

    Joey Armstrong is the drummer. Just because punk music isn't complex or hard to play doesn't mean it isn't good music. It's all about creativity and expression of feelings. I mean I'd rather listen to Zeppelin or Floyd any day, but just sayin.

    i wanted to not like it, but it's not that bad, but good luck stepping out of your father's shadow kid.

    Well, regardless of that album and it's irrelevance to this recording, as far as audio quality, this song sounds like shit. The actual song is a completely different issue. That's like saying Grown Ups isn't a shitfest of a movie just because Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore aren't. Just because you would suck him off doesn't make everything he touches turn to gold.

    I actually enjoyed that. They have a lot of potential. It reminded me of The Bouncing Souls and the first few Green Day albums.

    good stuff, kinda makes me mad how they get a free ride, while other of us kid musicians, have to work our way to the top. But other than that, its pretty sweet.

    actually not that bad. but, they sound a lot like a stereotypical (insert pop-punk band) tribute group.
