they'd be good if there already wasn't a pop-punk band from baltimore with catchier songs and better looking band members
We're speaking of All Time Low, correct?
Yeah, they've got some stiff competition there. to say the least =D
A lot of people compare ATL and DY. Hell, in AP magazine it was said their sound was All Time Low meets Mayday Parade. And I guess that's accurate. But to me, at least, Dropout Year has a great, unique sound. I was hooked from the first songs I heard by them.
But on the real, the Baltimore "scene" is primarily pop-punk. There are a shit ton of bands coming from here; it's hard for bands to make a name in the area. Dropout year definitely stands out and above the crowd.
Not to mention the guys in the band are ridiculously nice and they're all about the fans. And that rocks.
