Personally, I love seeing this kind of honesty from artists. Plus, it always helps when the punching bag deserves it.
From the ArticleRock & roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world,” he says, blowing cigarette smoke out the window of his rented East Village loft a few days *before the band heads to L.A. “So they became OK with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be shit – therefore you should never try to be the...

Watch Max Bemis perform the new Say Anything song, "Eloise," for Rolling Stone here.
Message from Maxalthough some bands like to say that input from kids doesn't affect them, for us it does, and what we've heard from you about the music so far is humbling me on a daily basis. i can't thank you absolutepunk kids enough. i can't believe how much of what i've read has been nice and it's cool that we've inspired people to voice their opinions either way. we owe you guys everything. after all, without you, i'd just be some crazy skinny-fat dude yelling awkward impromptu poetry over clash covers. oh, wait...
