Generic to folks like you and I, but "new and exciting" to a lot of kids in this scene. I don't know any of the bands that you listen to (besides Thursday I'm assuming), but I know that I would have loved this band when I got into this whole "scene" in middle school. Now though, people like you and I might strive for more innovative, less repetative music. But it's only our opinion. It's only "generic" compared to some genres. But comparing this band to Soulja Boy, I would say they are anything BUT generic. You know?
