Well, let's see: He sold his name and services to a church, and he now writes run-of-the-mill "praise Jesus" songs. Sellout. Contrived.

Or are you one of those people who thinks just because what...

Not going to deny his talent, but if anyone could ever be called a sellout, it's Dustin. So disappointed he gave up on Thrice for this contrived garbage.

Blink needs a producer so badly. As someone else previously mentioned, I think working with Brian Eno would yield some pretty interesting results.

I saw them a couple months ago on the YMAEWK tour and he was acting like a complete douche on stage. You could tell the rest of the band weren't thrilled with being on stage with him. Can't know for...

Anyone else feel like, aside from the two singles, that this is by far their weakest album?

I disagree. The problem with fun. (not that they aren't a talented group of guys) is that they're pretty much ripping off of 70's era songwriting, much like the hole that MCR put themselves in by...

Agree with this list, but JEW should be ahead of Fun. and Paramore. I know it's easy to put them further because their success has been more recent, but JEW was HUGE when Bleed American came out, and...

A lifestyle is something one chooses. And I'd say it's even more foolish to "not agree" with something that exists naturally.

Not unfair at all. It's not like telling someone that you don't agree with their choice to binge drink every weekend. Being gay isn't a choice, and that's where the difference lies. It's about as...

Let's just be real here: Dustin is doing this for the paycheck. Does anyone have any idea how lucrative the position he is putting himself in is?

The idea of Blink coming back to Warped is nice, but in reality it would probably suck. There would be way too many people, not to mention the shitty sound due to the stage being in the middle of a...

Compared to all their previous work (especially the untitled record), both of the songs sound rather uninspired to me. They're not BAD but they're nothing memorable. I feel like there's great songs...

People really don't "get" it. As long as there are threads/articles like this, that's more people talking about him and therefore checking out his music, and for him more attention and money. Whether...

Get this band to get together and play a live show without use of backing tracks and auto-tune and then tell me how good they are. They're great people and they have a decent ear for melody, but come...

They actually have a guy that stands off to the side of the stage that sings harmonies for their shows. No joke.

I have no idea, not saying there's a strong possibility, but if I were in that office with my band I sure as shit wouldn't laugh at his presentation and then have an article run about how awkward it...

While this might be a great marketing ploy for VW, I will say this: When you're trying to take your band as far as it can go, mocking a guy who could possibly put you on a supporting slot on a sold...

the last great band this label signed was The Early November, and still all they have going for them is Ace. I miss back in the day when Drive-Thru was the go to label.

Like The Starting Line? Who went from Geffen to Virgin?

I would think Thrice getting picked up by another major would depend on the marketability of the new album, and the size of Thrice's fan base...
