i think i finally figured out what happend to punk rock.

when punk started out, everyone involved was pissed off. as time went on the pissed off kids progressed into more extreme forms of expression i.e. thrash, sludge, crust, grind, noise, industrial, etc. then when no one was looking, all the happy people who were afraid of punk hijacked it and turned it into the chocolate covered candy coated syrupy sweet shit that it is today.

there are "punk" bands playing state fairs now. there are 'punk" bands on MTV. Tim Armstrong says he hates corporations, but one of his songs was in a shampoo comercial.

i didn't think it would get worse than Green Day, then Blink 182 came out. then New Found Glory. then Good Charlotte. then A Simple Plan.

there is nothing punk about mohawks and bondage pants anymore.

nothing that is labeled "punk" nowadays is punk. it's not punk if some advertising executive tells you so.

blah blah blah derpy derp tah tidlley tum.
