  1. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in At the Drive-In Are Back????   
    Oh man... This would be awesome if they're back to make a new album. I need to listen to "One Armed Scissor" now.

    I'd vote her in. Her stuff that I've heard is pretty decent. If Elle King gets in, I don't see how she shouldn't either.
  3. American_Idiot received reputation from Matt in Scott Weiland Has Passed Away   
    I'll just say my stance on this. I've never seen STP or Velvet Revolver live, so I did not know Scott personally. I wouldn't even say STP are in my Top 20 or 30 of favorite all-time bands, but I've grown up on Scott's voice over the last 23 years which spawned some of the biggest hits of the last two decades and more.
    I hated to see him constantly struggling with drug abuse and was glad to know that he was in the works of recovering. While I wasn't entirely surprised by the news last night with  his history, I was still quite sad to know that his demons likely got the best of him depending on what the cause of death was.
    I listened to STP's first four albums today at work and hope to listen to the last one and both of Velvet Revolver's sometime this weekend. It's been quite a few years since I've listened to "Core," "Purple," and "Tiny Music." There are some absolutely epic tracks on there that completely show why Scott was such an influence on so many rock fans over the last 23 years.

    Lets not get into that topic as to why that is. No one wants to hear my thoughts on it.
  6. American_Idiot received reputation from Lucas in Chester quits STP   
    I wouldn't say Linkin Park had much of a slump at all. "The Hunting Party" actually is my favorite album of theirs since "Minutes To Midnight." Sure. It's not as good as "Hybrid Theory" for me as it's easily my favorite album, but is still very good. I've never found any of their albums to be much of a disappointment in general.
    I kind of expected this to happen at some point. I didn't think Chester could have time on his side to be the frontman of two major bands and have family time. 
  7. American_Idiot received reputation from Manuel in Two Decades Ago - 'Pet Your Friends'   
    I wish these guys got more success. I don't remember hearing any other songs from this album and the only other Dishwalla song I ever remember hearing on the radio was "Somewhere in the Middle."
  8. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in The Clash #8 - Dead Sara (c) v. Arson City   
    Arson City is pretty generic, but it appealed to me more. 
  9. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2015 Sweet Sixteen: Foo Fighters vs. Nothing More   
    I'll be voting for the Foos until they probably hit Linkin Park or Rise Against. Then, my brain will become a pile of mush.
    EDIT after submitting: Oh, goddamn you people!

    Enter Shikari is much better than Northlane.
  12. American_Idiot gave reputation to Green Baron in MM2015 Round 3, Set 4: The Menzingers vs. Set It Off   
    Well now it's time for a better band that makes even catchier more enjoyable tunes to advance.
  13. American_Idiot received reputation from kyle1020 in MM2015 Round 3, Set 4: Switchfoot vs. Nothing More   
    Nothing More was one of my favorite bands from last year and their album was excellent. However, so was Switchfoot's and they're one of the most consistent bands that I know. If they can end of winning this round on this board, I'll be absolutely shocked and damn happy. I'll contribute to the cause. If Nothing More wins, I'll probably vote for them next time.

  15. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2015 Round 2, Set 6: Circa Survive vs. Otherwise   
    Otherwise isn't bad. Kind of generic, so I'm going with Circa Survive here. 
  16. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2015 Round 2, Set 4: Beartooth vs. Animals As Leaders   
    Gotta go with Beartooth as well.
  17. American_Idiot received reputation from Green Baron in Fall Out Boy - 'American Beauty/American Psycho'   
    I forgot this came out and supposed I should give it a listen. I feel like they've gone so downhill and poppy over the last ten years with every album that was released. The songs I've heard from this new album I feel like should have cheerleaders behind them while the band performs on stage. It's not even close to pop-punk anymore.
  18. American_Idiot received reputation from jmg05005 in Breaking Benjamin - Dark Before Dawn   
    Yup. It's currently #34 on the Active Rock chart and will likely rise another five spots or so within the next week.
  19. American_Idiot received reputation from Lucas in Tunelab Picks: FOO FIGHTERS   
    This is going to be one of the hardest damn lists I'm going to ever have to make. The Foos are one of my Top 5 favorite bands. I might even have a hard time making a Top 20, so I don't know how I'm going to pick a Top 10. I'd imagine the Top 5 of this will be all singles as they really do know how to pick them. So many freaking awesome songs on each album. This is going to be damn fun too.
  20. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2015 Round 1, Set 8: Devour The Day vs. Crown The Empire   
    Oh shit. I realized I never voted for this one. Going with Crown the Empire. ::hides from those who voted for Devour The Day::

    Oh shit. I realized I never voted for this one. Going with Crown the Empire. ::hides from those who voted for Devour The Day::
  22. American_Idiot received reputation from Salemzorro in 3 Doors Down new album news   
    I can't believe it's been four years since "Time of My Life" came out. I liked it decent enough, but I hope that this sounds better and is comparable to their older albums.
  23. American_Idiot received reputation from Bladenit09 in MM2015 Round 1, Set 8: Kontrust vs. Wolves At The Gate   
    Wolves At The Gate just seem like a typical metalcore/hardcore band to me. Kontrust had an interesting variety of sound, so they're getting my vote.
  24. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2015 Round 1, Set 7: Jonas And The Massive Attraction vs. The Menzingers   
    I didn't think Jonas and the Massive Attraction was anything special.  One of my friends has is a huge Menzingers fan and has been telling me for the longest time to check them out. I'm glad I finally did. They are freaking awesome!
  25. American_Idiot received reputation from Jamie in The Thread About Jamie's Band: Earthside   
    I had to do a double or triple take when I was scrolling down AbsolutePunk earlier. That must have felt awesome to see from a site that thousands of people read every day.
