  1. I didn't really like the new Against Me! album that much, but the Stephen songs did nothing for me
  2. Yellowcard went out with one of their best, Panic put out some of their worst songs to date.
  3. I'm not feeling this at all.
  4. Well, that was fast. https://soundcloud.com/kimburlyburly/brand-new-science-fiction
  5. Raise your hand if you thought Brand New would have the best-selling album in the country right now. I know I sure didn't.
  6. Out in October. Vinyl - very limited - for presale $45. Some tour dates as well. Maybe it's the last ride.
  7. Search at your own risk.
  8. This is the only site where this matchup would even be close, lol
  9. this is an extremely easy choice. TDEP are awesome and this was one hell of a goodbye. I've never liked Sum 41. I absolutely hate "Fat Lip", and "In Too Deep" isn't that great either. I did like "We're All to Blame" and "Pieces" from Chuck, but that's about it.
  10. probably because they realized it's not going to be good (yeah, I didn't like Young and Menace - or Champion, for that matter, but I'd have to say that's the better of the two)

  12. The Yanks get Jaime Garcia
  13. There's been a lot of hype around this album so far, can't wait to listen to it
  14. ugh fuck this matchup
  15. Linkin Park is still an incredibly popular band amongst people my age and younger who are into rock, more so than any other band. A lot of people I know were raised with the band, grew up listening to a lot of their songs and were affected a lot by Chester's death, which is something I didn't notice with any of the other deaths. Yes, I was born when Hybrid Theory came out. I've noticed the Minutes to Midnight-era stuff is what people love as well, which makes sense because that album came out at a perfect time for us to listen to. They were still very much "our" band, even if we were on the younger end of the spectrum.
  16. Still can't believe both of them are dead... if you told me this four months ago, I never would have believed you
  17. This feels different for me because Chester was a voice of my generation. Whereas I still loved bands like Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots, they were very much clearly "90s" bands that belonged to Generation X, making most of their music before I was born. They were the elder statesmen of alternative rock that had already defined themselves as anthems for people who grew up in that timeframe. Linkin Park, as a 2000s band, was always one that fit in with my age group, perhaps the most popular rock band of the decade, and one who, as clich├ęd as it sounds, connected with people my age and younger. The people I talked to who like alt/rock music, and even some who wouldn't call it their favorite type of music, knew and respected their biggest hits. "In the End". "Numb". 552 million views for "Numb" on YouTube, one of the top five most viewed rock videos in history. I've said this before, but "Numb" was the first song I ever loved. I heard it in the April of 2004, when I was on a plane and I was bored and I listened to my dad's MP3 player. "Numb" was the one that I loved the most, and I played that damn song over and over again. The worst part was that I didn't remember the title of it, and it took me years to find out what that one magical song was. When I heard it again, I instantly knew that was the song. The first few seconds came back and I remembered, that was the song. They were the first band with screamed vocals that I enjoyed, and it played a role in changing my mind from me despising heavy music to me appreciating it. They were undoubtedly a gateway band, but their best songs still hold up today. When I was 12, I had a dream that Mike Shinoda had died, and it was on the news. It wasn't a nice feeling, but I got over it quickly. I'm reminded of that dream today because after it happened, I told myself, I won't have to worry about that for another 30 years. Someone once told me that you know you're getting old when the celebrities from your childhood start to die out. I just didn't expect it to happen this early.
  18. goddamnit.
  19. Chester was born on March 20, Chris died on May 18. I looked it up because that would be a crushing twist of fate if the dates aligned.
  20. I know, I was just saying in case anyone clicked on the votes and saw where my allegiance lied
  21. lol I don't know why it says I voted for Say Anything but just... ignore that
  22. This video just came out two hours ago. And all the parallels between Cornell seem like they're not a coincidental.
  23. FCPREMIX is awesome
  24. That Say Anything album was... not good. Not good at all. I'm voting for Garbage because I refuse to vote for garbage.
