It's not even the picking of bands. But I remember their first Punk Goes... comps had some variance. Here every single song is a poorly produced breakdown with autotune choruses. There have been good covers but what is the point if none of these songs have any originality, emotion, and all sound the same?
Breathe Carolina is dance.
Mayday Parade is alt rock/pop-punk.
Forever The Sickest Kids is pop-rock with electronics.
The Maine is alt-pop-rock.
Craig Owens may be doing something acoustic.
But yeah, the others are scenecore bands...
I know whatcha mean--there are so many bands I'd rather see on it. But there's still enough variation on it to interest me.
And wasn't Punk Goes Pop 1 basically all the Drive Thru bands that sound similar?
