I don't even understand how people like them because it's more alt-pop punk (when compared to these guys) and they sound VERY similar to Man Overboard...but hey I'm entitled to my opinion, you to yours, I'll agree to disagree...pop punk is just the shit
So you're saying Transit is worse than Handguns because they aren't by-the-book generic pop-punk like Handguns? Makes sense.

not really...I guess you could call handguns a bit generic but their singer has a distinct voice and they're from around where I live so I've seen 'em twice, so I guess that's why I like them...and the fact that their music is great, the lyrics are real, and the songs are fast and catchy.

I find nothing too distinct about the singer's voice. I like generic pop-punk, so I like Handguns, but Transit is just a lot more inventive and creative which keeps me interested. Hanguns gets boring after a while. I could listen to Transit all day, but I can probably only listen to Handguns every once in a while.

are you calling what I say a countless rant? I'm just backing my opinion that you disagree with, I honestly don't understand how Transit could even be considered "pop punk", they sound nothing like Handguns, and I don't understand why someone on here even brought them up because they're irrelevant to Handguns' new CD. I hate to argue about genres and everything but I hope you or someone else can explain it to me. I guess the genre has expanded so far that bands like Transit and In Her Own Words can be considered pop punk on opposite ends of the spectrum.

You and I probably have different music tastes anyway, so like I said to another guy, I'll agree to disagree on music taste, just don't insult anyone's music taste.

I meant my rant was pointless haha. Not yours! Sorry if you felt like I was insulting you. Transit is pop-punk, they're just a different brand. Through Being Cool doesnt sound like Handguns. Cheshire Cat doesn't sound like Handguns. Such Gold doesn't sound like Handguns. All considered pop-punk. Genres are dumb, but it is what it is.
