Yeah, the bands mentioned like Greenday, aren't considered punk.


And punk is dead? LMFAO NO. Sorry the reason they've been writing songs called Punks not dead, is because it's not.

It's as silly as saying metal died. Just because punk isn't in the spotlight, doesn't mean it's dead, it's far from it. In my city alone (Ottawa, Canada) I can list off over 30 punk bands locally. Many have hit it big, including The Riptides and soon to be The Sewer Rats.

I personally love Aus Rotten, Dead Kennedys, The Misfits, Black Flag, Minor Threat, A Global Threat (seen em live) and many other PUNK bands.

If it doesn't have a fast drum beat to kick peoples ass to, it's not punk ;]

Blink 182's old stuff like Chesire Cat and Buddha were punk but the rest is more pop rock, Green Day was punk now alternative. Sum 41 can be considered punk do to the fact they played with Iggy Pop, their lyrics are anarchy, and they were on the "rock against bush" album with NOFX. MCR are more modern rock not punk. NOFX are punk.

Blink 182's older stuff, is like diet punk. Not satisfying and only half there.

Sum 41 is far from punk, lyrics do not equal sound of genre. NOFX are punk, however have been starting to lose their touch.

Actually now that I think about it, the offspring besides calling themselves light rock, do have a very very very small amount of 3rd Wave Ska in them.
