Punk Rock becoming Mainstream?
Well I wasn't sure where to put his but I feel it fits here. SO I listen to punk rock, and some of its sub genres; however it was brought ot my attention that slowly punk being underground and against the being part of the mainstrema world, is actually itself becoming mainstream.
Through bands such as Good Charlotte(I personally hate), New Found Glory(They have a few good songs), and Simple Plan(also hate) more nad more people mainly youing kids are listening to "punk rock", even though the bands that they are listening to aren't quite punk in my opinion the whole idea behind the music is becoming the "thing" to do now.
Personally I feel a punk band can still hold true to its origins even if it becomes a popular band, but it must becareful not to become a sell out because once that happens they often start creating music for money, and not for more noble reasons. One factor to this whole thing I think would definately be MTV.
So basically I was just wondering what everyone elses opinions about this were.
