Just a perfect combination of hardcore, punk, and hating girls for being into some jerk instead of you.
Most of the original punk bands had a pop sensibility, whether the Descendents' nerd-pop or the Ramones' bubblegum-beachrock, but they maintained the attitude that has become more akin with hardcore these days. My issues with a lot of 'modern' pop punk stem from a fundamental philosophical break from the idea of rebellion (regardless of image) vs conformity.

Thanks for the additions abrown0718. Love me some Tribe and Tony Stark.

My most recent purchase which has been getting repeated plays. It inspires me to post more great metal.
