Please just break up.

Like you should have done in 1995.

dammit. It's not Pennywise without Jim. Break up or at least go on with another name.

Jim isn't exactly a replaceable member...

No singer will ever live up to Jim.

They need to end this now.

Nobody can replace Jim. They'd be better off touring without a singer and having the crowd sing along.

Ignorant comments.

Jim is awesome. Penywise with Jim was awesome. Jim was NOT Pennywise. He was a very large part, but the rest of the band was very involved with Pennywise's direction and music.

I'm sad to see Jim leave (and thankful I had the opportunity to see the band with Jim numerous times), but I'm optimistic about the future. Maybe they will get better? Maybe they'll stay the same? Maybe they'll get worse? I don't know, and neither do you.

I wish Pennywise the best. Look forward to catching them on tour again.. I'll be playing them en route to the Lifetime show tonight.

Sorry dude, but I highly doubt you'd say the same if Geoff left Thursday.

People want them to break up, because honestly, there just aren't that many bands that didn't just end up fizzling out in obscurity after "forging forward" with some unknown new vocalist.

When it comes to vocalists, people should go the Hot Water Music route...otherwise, they're just asking for a prolonged death.

Keep in mind Jim has left the band before.
I think Dave from the Vandals is a good choice.

Oh no dude. You got me all wrong. I'm saying I don't like Pennywise regardless of who the singer is. I'd been wishing they'd break up for quite a while now.

I wont deny I didn't listen to good music in 1995. But I've never been a Pennywise fan even when I was just getting into punk rock. Their music literally sounds all the same to me.

Sorry, I wasn't aware you couldn't post in a news topic about bands you don't like. You better let everyone in the Brokencyde thread know they're not allowed to post in there unless they're fans.

I never really got into these guys, but seriously... maybe it's time to throw in the towel?

I mean they've been doing it for like 20+ years, and their LEAD SINGER just left the band... Even if they do continue, it's obviously not going to be the same.

For reals. Not saying they are a bad band at all - I use to mad respect them in high school. But on the real, although Jim is not the main component of Pennywise, the sum is greater than all the parts, and all these parts really fit.

Geoff has always been the singer of Thursday. He's the sole lyricist and sole voice of the band since 1998.

The same cannot be said for Jim. The situations are not the same.

This. They've performed without Jim before, and it hasn't stopped them. Just because he's the most recognizable singer they've had doesn't mean he's the only one who can do it.

I'm sure there's a few thousand young punk kids who grew up listening to Pennywise that would KILL for a shot to sing for this band. All it takes is one awesome vocalist with a ton of heart.
