I'm not saying it's so much a competition as it is just getting people to notice your band. There's already bands that do the exact thing these guys are doing better and have been around longer so it's hard for them to get started.
very true with the current wave of pop-punk. everyone is accused of being a ripoff/heavily influenced by of either those two or TWY (which is honestly true in many circumstances)
these guys are miles better than Neck Deep
