Lol that was wild
It always reminds me of like 00s extreme sports video games
The 1975 is the most overrated band on this site
Blink 182 takes that title
No, if anything, blink deserves it.
Not sure (though I’m quite confident) this site would even exist without blink
The 1975 deserve it far more for being innovative and interesting musicians. And for not writing California at age 45 (or at all)
Also, The 1975 pay tribute to blink in their latest music video where they have picture of them on their wall, sooo.. yeah
And imagine the list of other bands/artists I could name that give blink-182 credit for them being
Big ole shrug. You can be influenced by something. That doesnt mean its quality. just that it came around at an important time, which for a lot of that age group, it did. The problem is hoppus hasnt grown as a person or musician at all in 20 years. Also Matt Skiba fucking sucks as a human.
Weird hill for me to choose to die on at 1am while at work haha
@CarpetElf My comments may come off as bit combative, but I do respect you and your opinion, just wanted to clarify cause I don’t want any bad blood on a personal level
Gotta give most overrated to Blink too
1975 is boring as shit
I like em
Boring is an absurd word to use to describe one of the most innovative pop bands out there.
Fair enough, I’ve just never been compelled enough to listen to more than a song
Edit: I’ve admittedly not listened to them since their debut
honestly thought about posting this like two nights ago lol
Boring maybe isn’t the word but what I’ve heard does absolutely nothing for me
“Give Yourself A Try” and “People” are the best/my favorite 1975 songs by a long shot but those are definitely not representative of the band as a whole imo.
Only track I’ve repeatedly returned to is Love it if we made it.
I really really like The 1975 a whole lot but it does feel sometimes like a lot of people will ride for whatever they do. Which I get, I’m probably like that with other artists. But they’ve just tried sooo many different things and I don’t think it’s *all* quality stuff
I genuinely love 1975 but they scratch an itch for me that might not work for others
This explains it. Theyve done a lot since their debut, which I could see how people could find boring
blink hasnt done anything very good in like 15 years but if were gonna be fair more influential pioneering artists than not put out mediocre shit after falling out of their prime, so im not going to judge their "legacy" too much on california. and the more i think about it the more i think tom was probably the strongest creative force in that band all along.
here's my take on washed up pioneer pop punk bands that might ruffle feathers tho: sum 41 >>> blink
