I'm not going to get dragged into another is 5sos punk????? debate, I just think it's worth noting that every generation seems to create it's own criteria for what qualifies as punk, and then forces...

Yeah, i find them fascinating because they mark the moment absolutepunk transitions into the curmudgeonly old punk grandpas who hate everything new. We've become those gen-x guys that used to rag on...

I ALSO think we're experiencing the "everyone likes a winner" syndrome in regards to 5SOS, where you see people on the site "giving in" now that their popularity is a foregone conclusion.

I think it's also human nature to hate things that came after the things you first liked. It's no coincidence that every generation thought they had the best music when they were young adults.

Haha, agreed. I think it's especially ironic on ap.net, where the first 10 years of the site's existence was arguing against older punk guys about whether or not midtown or brand new was punk or not.

Every single band featured on this website was at one time considered embarrassing and totally not punk.

100% FACT.

People acting like this record sounds so crazy when it sounds like most alternative rock music in 2014.

Actually really liked the 5sos cover, but they're not Real Pop Punk™ so F them.

A band no one has heard of stole from a band no one has heard of.

Keep in mind that Still Into You was already bigger than their other hits, too. That's two giant hits on one album.

Alls I'm saying is that people seem to have a fairly flexible definition of pop-punk that enables them to fit whatever bands they like into the genre while excluding ones they don't like. Call me a...

You started with two very general descriptions of pop-punk that you found on the internet:

“a strand of alternative rock that typicallymerges pop melodies with speedy punk rock tempos, chord...

What are the qualities that make Dookie a pop-punk album from beginning to end?

Obviously there are slower songs in the accepted pop-punk cannon, so there's gotta be more than just that. Is it lyrical content?

So is it mainly a distinction of tempo for you? Like Basketcase = pop-punk. When I Come Around = pop-rock?

Sorry, but your definitions didn't make much sense to me. You seem to be saying that certain songs are "punk" because they have a "punk" sound, but without getting particular enough. Sorry, but we're...

Am I wrong for thinking that the only difference between My Friends Over You and Better Off Dead is a mid tempo?

EDIT: and slightly glossier production.

I think it's also impossible to have a conversation about 5sos without pointing out that they're all teenagers from a small town in Australia. Their version of "pop-punk" is going to look...

Yeah, i didn't say that. I think it's possible for a band like 5sos to have a degree of influence, although it's WAY to early in their career to try to guess.
