What a great way for him to make it about himself without actually addressing the situation or apologizing.

"I know I am not guilty of anything legally speaking"

Get fucked. What a stubborn statement. Like, dude, just admit to it already.

This is such a shame.

So any sort of criticism of a woman = misogyny now?

But you can choose not to be involved with certain women if you think they have a risky sex life. There's nothing wrong with that.

I think it's a stretch to call those TSSF songs "misogynistic", and I don't know why people ever started doing that. I get how they seem to slut shame on the surface, but in the context of the rest...

Someone who's friends with TSSF messaged me after seeing my posts on here and confirmed they were influenced by HTL. You don't have to believe me, but all I was trying to say is they're more...

How can a band be cliche for playing a style they helped make popular?

Well your original argument was that this album was cliche, even though it's a style they've been playing for a decade. So regardless of album sales, they were still in the first wave of easycore and...

How are YouTube views not a valid comparison? Even though they figure in repeated listens, they help show the number of people listening to the music. Album sales don't really reflect that anymore...

If we're talking in terms of sales and venue caps, then Cartel is no more relevant in this case then, since they're basically a one-hit wonder on paper.

To each their own then, but they came up at the same time, played the same style, and played a lot of the same tours/fests as them.

Also, keep in mind I was ONLY referring to the easycore subset of pop punk. They were never one of the biggest general pop-punk bands, but it's not unfair to include them in the leagues of SYG, FYS,...

Yes, they were. They've played sold-out headlining tours before. They stopped being relevant after their major-label troubles and when they changed their style on Invicta. Now they're starting to...

I'll try to find links to an archived Myspace or old interviews later.

I don't agree with your idea that a band has to be bigger than the bands they influenced to still be considered pioneers. For...

There was a period where TWY didn't have a custom URL on their Myspace, so it's hard to find it on the Wayback Machine. But yes, there was an influences section.

I apologize if I worded that...

If I remember correctly, TWY used to list them as an influence on their Myspace years ago. Fireworks were influenced by them too. There was also a video recently where Dan and Parker Cannon thanked...

If their music has eclipsed the main band who seemed to inspire them (NFG), then that says a lot. Plus HTL influenced The Wonder Years, The Story So Far, etc.... so basically all the big bands in...

Well, SSSF and this album certainly surpass anything FOB and NFG have done recently, in my opinion.

Why not though? Yeah, their style started off as an emulation of NFG, but their first album is nearly a decade old and they were part of the first wave of easycore with SYG, FYS, etc.

What's so cliche about it? I'm not saying it's a unique album--it's not--but it's by a band who helped PIONEER this style of pop punk, so I don't know if that's a fair criticism. Personally, I like...

It's not MEANT to be something more than a pop-punk album though. And to be fair, most of the songs on here are easycore and don't sound like a majority of pop-punk releases from the past few years....

"Lights and Sound was directionless and dull"
I was tempted to just stop reading after that. I still don't understand all the negative opinions toward that album after all these years. It was so good.
