2 Your Thoughts and Opinions on Punk Music in General?

Great genre, my favorite, skate punk, punk rock, pop punk, all great. This genre has really good guitar riffs and bass playing. It is fast and upbeat most of the time, which is why I like it. Fast and upbeat is my type. I have many songs I like from this genre, and this is a genre that is still good, even today in an awful period for pop music. I wish punk was mainstream, modern punk is still better than modern pop, so yeah. I like older punk too. - AnimeDrawer

It's a pretty good fast genre that has evolved over the years.

I like punk rock's guitar riffs. Especially Johnny Ramone's barre chords. - zxm

It depends on the band normally

3 Jimmy Eat World or Weezer?

Hmm... I'd probably go with Weezer.

Niether are punk, they're more alternative, but I would go with Jimmy Eat World especially their works on future and everything before that. - izaguf

Weezer - JCHOW


4 The Offspring or Sum 41?

Sum 41, I don't really like The Offspring, but it is an okay band though. But Sum 41 is much better, I used to confuse them with Blink 182 because they are similar, but some of their playing is different. definitely one of the best Canadian bands. - AnimeDrawer

The Offspring.

The Offspring - Revrad

Sum 41

6 Least Favorite Punk Album?

Ocean Avenue- Yellowcard.

American Idiot by Green Day - Gruunge

California- blink-182 - Revrad

7 Least Favorite Punk Artist or Band?

Avril Lavigne, Paramore, and Good Charlotte. They kinda suck and are too pop to be punk, and their songs are kinda annoying and boring. - AnimeDrawer

In my opinion Good Charlotte's a terrible punk band.

Bowling for Soup - JCHOW

8 Blink 182 or Green Day?

Both great bands, however, I chose Blink 182 because I like how they play better, Green Day has good playing, but Blink 182 has a more upbeat, louder type of playing which I like. Travis is just simply one of the best drummers that makes songs catchy, Tom DeLonge has an amazing voice and his guitar riffs are loud and unlike any other, and Mark is a good singer with great bass skills, he is self taught which is cool. Billie and Mark and Tom are all equally good singers, but I pick Travis over Tre Cool in drumming and Tom over Billie in guitar playing. - AnimeDrawer

Both are iconic pop-punk bands but Green Day.

Green Day. - zxm

GD for life m8 - Revrad

12 What Band Got You Into Punk?

In 1983 there was always a group of high school aged kids ( I was 7) sitting in our neighborhood park playing punk rock on their "ghetto blaster". I was totally digging the music. I, very nervously, approached them and asked, "Who is this your listening too? " They're eyes lit up. One responded, "Wasted Youth". They were stoked I liked there music and were really nice to me. Then one day (they along with me were always in the park) one of them called me over and gave me a mixed tape of punk rock music. - THC13

Dead Kennedys. - Gruunge


13 Your Favorite Punk Artist or Band?

There's an amazingly underrated band called Victim's Family that's punk, but after that I'd go with Operation Ivy - Gruunge

Thomas Matthew DeLonge is the best punk singer and Green Day and Blink 182 are my favorite bands. - AnimeDrawer

Eh for me it's Green Day/ Billie Joe Armstrong.

14 When I Come Around or All The Small Things?

When I Come Around.

All The Small Things, it is a more fun song. - AnimeDrawer

The Blink 182 song. The other is so overrated

15 Pop Punk or Punk Rock?

"Pop Punk" is such an oxymoron. What's next, Adult Contemporary Death Metal or Speed Metal Slow Jams? - THC13

Both are sub genres of Punk but Punk Rock.

Both are great, honestly, I don't know which one to choose. - AnimeDrawer

Real punk
