You know how sometimes there are bands that instantly catch your ear? Grayscale is one of those bands for me. Connected from the first time I spun them while I was at work last year.

They released...

Come on, the poster presented the evidence that Dan and Parker stated how much they love HTL, but you refuse to accept it because it didn't fit what you needed word for word. Give credit where it's...

One listen through is probably why you don't see/hear what the rest of us are. I instantly identified with the album and absolutely the singles, and I'm not always one to love something off the bat....

Sounds like you've just got a more mature taste within the broad genre under punk/rock. Nothing wrong with that!

Just like there's nothing wrong with an album that is just riffs and jams and might...

This whole album is like all my favorite HTL songs. I've gone back and been kind of disappointed in past albums, nostalgia got the best of me. This one though, knocks it out of the park. A straight...

That's the best part! A big reason why I love these tribute albums.

TSSF and KnucklePuck skew more towards punk in my opinion. This was more on the poppy side.

I liked it, and Storyteller. Both songs make you wanna jump around.



Physically or musically? It's...

This is what I'm thinking. Probably a one off or very limited run exclusive to one general region.

I don't understand the widespread hate towards BABE. I used to think it strayed from Mutiny and This Will Be... but it really didn't, or at least only slightly. Seemed like a proper follow-up. I'm no...

They really do. I remember first listening to "Don't Come Home" and kind of filing it away as something to keep an eye and ear on. Gave it a pretty consistent rotation since it was only 3 songs and...

Surprised this has no comments. They had another song streaming on here and the response was very positive. This fits right in.

I'll have to keep this band in mind when the EP drops later this...

I actually really liked it because of the screaming. Man Overboard doesn't really do that and I was interested in how they'd pull it off. Well done. Everyone had a different opinion on how to...

Pretty sure a backwards snapback is attached to Derek's head.

State Champs are great. The acoustic EP came out VERY well. Looking forward to the new material!

Hahah, knew it was gonna be Light Years flyers at the end.

Good stuff. Fun take on stereotypes and trends in and outside of their own musical scene.

They characterize Paramore as "adult pop punk." Isn't punk born of rock? And pop-punk born of punk?

So... what exactly is the problem?

Just because they don't play your SPECIFIC subgenre, doesn't...

Heard the new singles and they're awesome, sounds like my favorite parts of Skip School and This Is a Stick-Up.

Best comparison throughout.

There's moments where PBC shines through, but that's literally only the vocals. They aren't as consistently gruff as PBC's were.

Nice mix of artists make up this...

Been on this band for a minute now. One of my favorites of the smaller DIY bands.

This song is very catchy and probably one of the poppier songs I've heard from them (check out their last album,...

Couldn't wait to show this to my wife, she's subjected me to this song countless times the past few weeks, but I'm unimpressed. That little riff was cool, and changing the lyrics to "Pete Wentz get...

That's... really fucking cool, actually.

Funny what happens when we have the facts.

On topic: can't this dude get girls 18+? You sing in a band man! Ya got problems. He should sit for a while.

I'm actually getting a very CD&DC vibe. I still listen to it regularly so no nostalgia here -- besides, it's my 3rd or 4th favorite album of theirs, just happens to have their biggest singles. But it...

Didn't know this (the case) was ever resolved. That happened relatively quick.

That led me to ask the questjon, wait, he's not in for life?

Dude is sick. There was a sex tape between him and a...

Band tweeted out a Youtube link to a sampler of the album. About a minute per song: http://youtu.be/tBgtx_rO4Hw

This thing is gonna rip.
