What's great about it? It has a few great SONGS, but as a whole album it's boring. Nothing on it wasn't done better on their previous full lengths.

He said positive things about the new songs they put out in 2012 and the "beef" is long squashed.

As for the JJR thing, I'm not sure how aware they are of the No Good News situation, but I hope he...

They cut professional ties, but they're still friends with him.

My point is TWY posts should have a disclaimer too if this site is going to approach it like that. Just because they're not on PN doesn't mean they had no relation to the situation.

I looked at most of the latest pages in the Boycott thread and people were talking about situations that had nothing to do with Pure Noise.

Just out of curiosity, why are people still boycotting Pure Noise if No Good News has broken up and FPS is off the label? Is it just because their apology wasn't public enough? FYS is the only band...

When I talked to a couple of the guys from MCS earlier this year, they said they've pretty much disowned Go and that the new album is in the IATM/CTTM style. So there's a good chance the singles are...

What'd she say? I only saw screenshots of the texts between her and her friend and a tweet saying, "This is so great," or something to that effect.

The victims have been making a joke of the situation of social media, so while the band members should've known better, it's almost like everyone EXCEPT the people close to the situation is blowing...

What a great way for him to make it about himself without actually addressing the situation or apologizing.

"I know I am not guilty of anything legally speaking"

Get fucked. What a stubborn statement. Like, dude, just admit to it already.

This is such a shame.

So any sort of criticism of a woman = misogyny now?

But you can choose not to be involved with certain women if you think they have a risky sex life. There's nothing wrong with that.

I think it's a stretch to call those TSSF songs "misogynistic", and I don't know why people ever started doing that. I get how they seem to slut shame on the surface, but in the context of the rest...

Someone who's friends with TSSF messaged me after seeing my posts on here and confirmed they were influenced by HTL. You don't have to believe me, but all I was trying to say is they're more...

Well your original argument was that this album was cliche, even though it's a style they've been playing for a decade. So regardless of album sales, they were still in the first wave of easycore and...

How are YouTube views not a valid comparison? Even though they figure in repeated listens, they help show the number of people listening to the music. Album sales don't really reflect that anymore...

If we're talking in terms of sales and venue caps, then Cartel is no more relevant in this case then, since they're basically a one-hit wonder on paper.

To each their own then, but they came up at the same time, played the same style, and played a lot of the same tours/fests as them.

Also, keep in mind I was ONLY referring to the easycore subset of pop punk. They were never one of the biggest general pop-punk bands, but it's not unfair to include them in the leagues of SYG, FYS,...

Yes, they were. They've played sold-out headlining tours before. They stopped being relevant after their major-label troubles and when they changed their style on Invicta. Now they're starting to...
