Who are the Sex Pistols? Are we just making up bands?

almost none of those bands say theyre punk.

but thats besides the point. you seem to be saying that punk is the only good kind of music.

i always have found the mentality of punk rock enthusiasts laughable. you dont believe in anarchy. look at you. youre posting on a site where people can buy anything from Abercrombie polo shirts to sex toys.

and yknow, i dont like yellowcard or Good Charlotte either. but its not because for me they fail to embody the punk spirit..its because i find their songs repetitive, dull and pretentious. The Cure and Smashing Pumpkins are amazing bands with equally unique styles to offer, and dont even try to just dump everything you dont like on them.

dude, be quiet already. nobody really likes emo nowadays anyway. pretty soon it'll fade and we'll hopefully have real music back. so, for now, nobody wants to hear you what you think about "real" punk vs "fake" punk.

see "Music as expression"

The Pumpkins were only on the fringe of grunge, and only very briefly. The most adequate genre for them (at least, that encompasses all of their music) is probably "alternative," though I hate calling any music that.

It's funny how the name "Alternative" evolved. I can see why you hate sticking its label on things. It used to mean an alternative to the mainstream, but now that's what they call mainstream rock music! I mean, even the Pumpkins are fairly mainstream, aren't they? Mellon Collie sold several million copies.

One of the themes I regularly pick up in listening to "real" punk is fundamental contempt for the ideas of respect and idolatry. Come on, Johnny Rotten sang about kicking someone in the face while they're praying.

are you serious?
you don't know who the Sex Pistols are?
they pretty much created the punk genre, not only with their music but with their style and their behavior

without them punk would've never been

I don't think you know what you're talking about. Emo is its own category of crap and only capable of one level of emotion, while this album shows so much more. Emo music is some of the shallowest stuff out there, much like most of the music produced these days. It's totally incomparable with what this band produces. Besides, where do you get that this is punk? The Smashing Pumpkins is considered alternative rock...

Butt rock is the new punk rock, because it's probably the only form of rock that doesn't think it's about the change the world.
