People, People! Let's get back to what's important here, that Emo Sucks!

I always thought that the band Jawbreaker was the greatest. I think they may have started a lot of today's emo stuff rolling. They did it in a sympathetic kind of way that seemed more akin to Kerouac. Most of the stuff I hear today just seems self indulgent and very cry babyish.

I gave up on Alt Rock before it was classified.
There's enough introspection in teenagers without pity-massage and capital being introduced through music.

I hope I've alienated everyone enough through them there couple of sentences to move this thread to PUNK.

(So obscure, not even Dr. Treebrance will get it.)

Speaking of Punk, I want to apologize for my pot stirring earlier in this thread. I was just in a mood. I understand what was actually being stated and I just decided to mess with it. Again, sorry.
Of course, if Pablus wants to start some sh*t, BRING IT ON!

Did Tiki Central get a new Punk forum? Cool! Another forum for people to not bother correctly posting in! Now that's what I call TOTAL CHAOS!

Jawbreaker was good, and Dashboard Confessional, Sunny Day Real Estate & Jets to Brazil ain't bad but they were part of a downward spiral into suckitude for the entire genre. But that's just for Emo, Emocore & (the Horror! The Horror!) Screamo; there are plenty of Indie bands that've gone in different directions: Drive Like Jehu, RFTC & the Night Marchers from San Diego's own John Reis as good examples of non-weepy, non-poser Indie Rock, or how about Bob Pollard, The Apples in Stereo, Drive-by Truckers, Wilco, Witch, Earthless, The Melvins, or Warhammer 48K? They're all Indie, and they all don't suck.

Damn, Pabby's right for once.
