This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast takes a break from our regular "discuss the topics in the news" format to bring you a special episode. What we wanted to look at this week were the scene classics. What are the albums that define this music scene? What makes an album a classic? And why would we, specifically, pick it? Each one of the hosts had to narrow their selection down to three albums. We wanted to put some constraints on the list to make the choices more difficult.

Head to the replies replies to see their video for "(The Good News Is) Nobody Gives A Damn," which will be on their sophomore album, Long Day’s Journey to the Middle, due out in the spring.

Professor Adam Diehl discusses Kendrick Lamar's albums and elaborates on the context in which they stand as art.
If I had to pick an era of jazz, it would not be pre-jazz, but that being said, jazz is the music of America and it's the most American music form of all except for maybe hip-hop. So I think him appealing to that and appealing to '70s funk and R&B, rather than just trying to get another hit… I wasn't expecting him to be so particular about the feel of the album from a musical standpoint. I thought he was going to have a lot to say lyrically, and the music was going to not be industry-dictated but take more of a backseat to the lyrics. And by no means was that the case.

Since the new Sleeping With Sirens album dropped yesterday, people have finally gotten the chance to give it a full listen. Well, it didn't take people long to realize that the song "November" sounds an awful lot like We Are The In Crowd's "Long Live The Kids" from their Feldmann produced Weird Kids. Head to the replies to compare for yourself, but it's pretty blatant to me.
