AndiTheBarvarian: Sometimes you have to break the rules, even with Punk! Dec 16, 2018 13:46:38 GMT
redscorpion: Blondie was punk. "Punk" has no real definition other than breaking rules. Punk can take samples from any genre of music and adapt and experiment. Grunge IS punk. And you did NOT just throw shade on the Sex Pistols!?!?!?!?! Dec 16, 2018 13:29:27 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Grunge = Punk + stomachache! B-| Dec 16, 2018 12:19:05 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Sex Pistols were a boy group! :D Dec 16, 2018 12:11:55 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Nirvana was Grunge, Blondie part Punk part Pop, their hits usually Pop. Dead Kennedys was Punk. Dec 16, 2018 12:11:14 GMT
nerdthenord: Meh. Punk is alright, but Gothic Country is better. Dec 16, 2018 11:54:33 GMT
redscorpion: Or even compare Horror Pops (rockabilly) to Plasmatics (metal-punk) and you can see a huge variety that is all "punk" genre. Nirvana was punk, but then so was Blondie. Dec 16, 2018 11:17:18 GMT
redscorpion: Punk is a wide open genre of music. It takes less skill if you want to do simple rock riffs, but it's quite complex if you want reggae or blues based. Compare Sex Pistols (simple, less skilled) to the Clash (complex reggae). Dec 16, 2018 11:16:22 GMT
dracal: After that is easy to burying the katana, you just disassembling the handle and take a rock to knock off on the tang than directly into the earth. Dec 16, 2018 5:34:56 GMT
dracal: The truth is that I just want to rape my oroshigane for fun like, on a tree but I dont know where to do it because of ******* laws. You know. Dec 16, 2018 5:31:49 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: The "less skill" was about Punk and the "backtalk parents" about Rock'n Roll. Metalheads never backtalk their parents because they just can't hear what they say any more. ;) Dec 16, 2018 5:22:24 GMT *
nerdthenord: I’d be game, but I’m nowhere even close to being halfway to Quebec. Dec 16, 2018 5:18:02 GMT
dracal: (Made by selectsword) Dec 16, 2018 4:56:10 GMT
dracal: I want to rape my 1k usd oroshigane since I have in mind to keep only 1 sword at home and It would be a TH katana. Dec 16, 2018 4:55:42 GMT
dracal: Looking for a good backyard cutting friend near quebec. Dec 16, 2018 4:50:12 GMT
nerdthenord: Or bad parents. Clear but subtle distinction. Sometimes good people make terrible parents, and sometimes horrible people become parents with predictably tragic results. Metal helped me overcome my worthless father. \m/ Dec 16, 2018 3:21:08 GMT
redscorpion: I don't think metal makes you back talk your parents. I think bad parenting makes you back talk your parents. Dec 16, 2018 1:07:09 GMT
redscorpion: Less skill? No, not actually. There are good metal bands and bad ones, same as in any genre of music. But there is a good deal of technical skill and music structure/theory involved in metal. Dec 16, 2018 1:06:33 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Music that makes you wear a black leather jacket and backtalk to your parents! Dec 15, 2018 22:27:06 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: Rock'n Roll (only faster and with less skills) Dec 15, 2018 22:21:45 GMT *
