    At least they'll stay 18 forever.
  2. Green Baron gave reputation to RainbowDragon in MM2016 Round 1, Set 16: 5 Seconds Of Summer vs. XXI   
    The Misfits are back. The most influential punk band of all time as you can clearly see here.

  3. Green Baron received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2016 Round 1, Set 10: No Devotion vs. Third Eye Blind   
    Boo.
  4. Green Baron gave reputation to RainbowDragon in MM2016 Round 1, Set 8: Dead Sara vs. Cattle Decapitation   
    I dont remember voting for it but Im all for more metal and less indie/folk/pop being included.
  5. Green Baron gave reputation to RainbowDragon in MM2016 Round 1, Set 4: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds vs. Walk Off The Earth   
    Walk off the Earth sucks donkey weinerschnitzel. Might as well be pop music.

    "Waves" was one of my favorite songs last year. I implore you all to listen to it until you're in sick of it.

    Since a random forum was used as evidence earlier, let's use this as evidence as well. This is Dr. Luke's status and how he's being bombarded with accusations and labels.
    Now, look at tweets he got in response to this: Just going straight down the line, "Rapist", "DIE", "RAPIST", "Try not to rape these women thanks", "Stay away from filthy harmony", "disgusting", "Karma is coming for you luke", "Hey rat, I'm so glad Sony is finally cancelling you", "BYE RAAT", "No sty away from girls thnx"
    In this rape culture, doesn't seem like we need much evidence to label someone a rapist. I get the court of public opinion, I do, but there is due process for a reason; it makes sense. I have absolutely no issue with rape being discussed, us trying our best to continue to prevent it. But I do not in any way believe going to extremes, using the "listen and believe" approach is productive and using false statistics to create hysteria.

    Key word there: Culture
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/culture
    I want you to provide me with studies that shows that our culture, in large numbers, blames the victims for rape. Until you show me this is a widespread problem, no, there is no "rape culture".
    Also, telling a victim "Why didn't you fight back?" - Honestly, is this seriously something you believe society thinks when hearing a rape victims story? "people say the victim is not allowed to change their mind after the sex is commenced" - This is also not a widespread western issue.
    I in no way doubt there are assholes who say these things, but if you want to attach "culture" to rape, you better have something to back this up. Otherwise, it is hysteria.

    Never heard of Good Riddance but I listened to it and I have to vote for true punk rock over that horrible mishmash of not good things.

    What I'm getting from this is Mike is not as terrible as Harty.

    You're a Bernie supporter and I'm the delusional one
  13. Green Baron gave reputation to pen in Artie Ziff - Alt Rock - (UK)   
    That's hilarious for reasons.
  14. Green Baron gave reputation to Brad in 2016 Election Season   
    I'm confused about this whole bernie thing. What makes him so great again? Because last time I checked the things he believes in, don't work and the things he wants to get rid of have propelled us to the biggest economic country in the world

    I met Bernie Sanders today
    The girl I brought down to the rally with me snagged two wristbands from this organizer handing them out, so we could be on the stage behind Bernie during the rally. Only like 20-30 people got that out of the 1500+ there. Super lucky. This was at the State Theatre in Portland, ME where I've posted some concert stuff before.
    View from the stage behind him

    Bernie's here!

    A stranger took the picture for me. He ALMOST completely ruined it with his thumb in the way but it still came out okay. Very happy I at least got to shake his hand and take this picture.

    Someone got a side view 

  16. Green Baron received reputation from Matt in Kanye West - 'The Life of Pablo'   
    I always feel like whenever people talk about misogynistic lyrics they don't get that calling out one woman =/= calling out all women. So even if Claudio had some real-life inspirations for Good Apollo I, he wrote those lyrics as a way of taking down one person, not all of women in general.
    So I suppose something like "die white girls" would be more misogynistic since it encompasses all girls, but even that's a poor example because that's from Al's perspective and obviously not his actual feelings.

    Minus away all you want, but it's very disappointing to read that some of you don't care about Kanye spewing misogynistic, racist, and just general hateful comments about others.  Saying, "oh, it's just Kanye being Kanye" is the worst defense for that kind of behavior that I've ever heard.  It's because of people like you that we still have problems with racism and inequality for women.
    Seriously, F all of you guys for hating on us for standing up for the rights of others.  The world would be a better place if hateful and evil pr*cks like Kanye were dead.  Seriously, I would celebrate his death.

    Examples, please. Other than Coheed, who writes songs about fictional characters.
    To put bluntly, your example was shit. 
  20. Green Baron gave reputation to Mike in Got (NFL) News   
    I'm not condoning what Peyton might have done. I just don't believe for a second that that article was posted with the genuine intentions of getting to the truth. The writer was just mad that the black quarterback was getting criticized so he had to dig up old dirt on the white quarterback so he'd get criticized too. If the Panthers won the Super Bowl and Cam's press conference never happened, I highly doubt that this article would've ever been made.
    I clicked through some of the articles from Shaun King and I notice he talks about race issues in sports in a lot of his columns. Funny I never saw any of his articles criticising Floyd Mayweather for saying racist stuff about Manny Pacquiao, Charles Barkley saying he hates white people or Shaq making fun of Yao Ming for being Chinese.
  21. Green Baron gave reputation to RainbowDragon in Basement - 'Promise Everything'   
    Better than 95% I agree with that. I guess I answered my own question, the major labels still control the charts and for some reason they dont want to push emo or punk bands. Punk has been a foundation for "alternative" since the fucking 70's and to just ignore it all together now is asinine. Im obviously saying basement is a punk/emo band which I dont think anyone would disagree with.
    Its like the music nerds/critics suddenly took over the charts and airplay and took it away from the people and general populous. They push what THEY want and they dont give a shit about you and I. How this happened, I have no idea. I guess with the death of record sales they figured it was an opportunity to push their agendas.
    For the record, I know Basement is on a small label which would make it tough for them to chart and get a push but there's no way the big labels dont know about the by now. I guess remember alternative radio being pretty diverse back in the day and that all changed.
  22. Green Baron gave reputation to American_Idiot in Basement - 'Promise Everything'   
    They're better than 95% of what's on Alternative radio right now. I've never disliked that format as much as I do now. Sure. You have Foo Fighters, Silversun Pickups, and a few others that do well on there, but yeah most of the Top 50 over the last few years is indie pop stuff that bores me to death.
  23. Green Baron gave reputation to RainbowDragon in Basement - 'Promise Everything'   
    Why cant we have bands like this charting on alternative ? Its still mostly indie dance pop, right ? Are the major labels still controlling the charts and airwaves ? Im asking you because you follow this stuff.

    The face of the man who no longer can shove "I've won more Super Bowls than you" to his brother's face.

    No excuse for that one. Especially because a FG makes it a two-score game, and they were in McManus's range.
