I'm a fan of TSS so this isn't me talking shit but serious question: when were they ever "punk" ? Unless you're referring to the sound from ...In Color but I don't know how I would classify that sound
It's... bleh. I think the best way to describe it is to compare this to something like Always Summer or Radiosurgery.
Don't think Summer Set were ever true punk but some of their earlier work (I especially like Boys You Do) did have a certain "kick" to it, whereas this just sounds like a top 40 B-side... nothing against top 40 music, just don't really like the song, at all.
Also, of course you're not talking shit again. Wouldn't want anything to happen to your friends. ;)
