Both of you, need to take a time out. All music starts somewhere, and other people build on it, it is how Rock n' Roll was started in the first place....sheesh.

PS, I refuse to listen to anyone who has an avatar of a dictator with a really bad mustache!

Groovy, you must have taken a HUGE shine to me since that Christmas thread, eh? Haha, stickin it to the man.

And anyways, my point in all of my above posts is that Avril isn't punk, Good Charollete isn't punk, as a matter of fact, nothing in recent years that people put into the punk catagory is true punk. Its all about as punk as N'Sync is rap. Its more along the lines of alternative pop-rock.

And the point to MY post, is that all music is inspired/based/copied and elaborated on by something earlier. The Beatles were ifluenced by Elvis, David Bowie, was influenced by Bob Dylan, Trent Reznor was ifluenced by Bowie, Joy Division was influenced by The Sex Pistols, even Elvis himself was influenced by the blues. All forms of rock, and pop are combinations of other forms of music. It is the way it has been, and the way it always will be. And at my age, listening to people argue about what is punk, and what is not, is so tired, it's not even worth listening too anymore. I could give a crap less how many beer bottles Sid Viscious broke over his forehead, if he can't play a bass guitar to save his life. Get over it.

Yea, thats the idea. According to one generation, pure rock was this and its dead. Another generation says pure rock is this and its dead. MY generation says that Punk is long dead, but people of a naive stature (I.e: People who listen to pop IMO) say that Avril is punk, say that G.C. is pop, ect, ect. Its all in the eye of the beholder.

Eh?

Avril thinks she can call herself a legend? Elvis was a legend. Jon Bon Jovi is a legend. Celine Dion was good. But Avril? She's a damned little bitch!

Have you been reading my posts? Punk, as in the music made for hyper-rebels and tech-junkies, has died. Just look at what mainstream 'Punk' is now a days. The day I found out that Bowling For Soup was considered Punk, I knew that it was dead.
