Re: Punk (music)
Blink182 if anything are considered light punk, or Alternative rock.
Hell they're FAR FROM THE BEST. They've offered nothing unique, I could list off 5 other generic bands with the same sound.
Take The Restarts for one, a UK punk band; no singer has his voice, NONE. It's amazing in it's aggression.
Hell, if the band doesn't sound pissed off and angry through the drum set alone, it's not punk. Blink 182 relies on simple riffs and high pitched vocals, far from aggressive music, albeit I'm not calling it shit.
