What Anthony is trying to express is strictly his own opinion and is not intended for everyone to agree with it. But, I completely agree with what he is trying to convey. The major reason, is that the punk scene over the past few years has been diluted with bands like "Blood on the Dance Floor" who have this merger between "pop" and "alternative/punk/rock". Mainly, because people want both sides to win and don't completely commit to one side. So, Anthony saying that they are conflicting and you can't like both is mostly due to the disruption of the scene he has been in for the past 20 years, and the result is to recreate a new underground. Ah, the circle of life.
