Anti-Flag – One Trillion Dollars Lyrics 11 years ago
Hearing the censored version of this song has led me to believe that they have sold out. No punk band, no matter how great the possibility of having a greater fan base, with TRUE punk ethics, would ever allow their music to be censored. They used to be one of my favorite punk bands, but the instance where I heard this song censored, I was instantly was convinced that they have sold out. And don't give me that bullshit line, oh when it's sold through a major record label, it will reach more people. That is the biggest bullshit cop out line I have fucking heard from punk bands who have sold out. Their last decent album was For Blood and Empire.

MC Lars – Hot Topic Is NOT Punk Rock Lyrics 11 years ago
I'm surprised that no one touched upon the aspect that I'm about to ask.

He talks about Misfits and Sex Pistols merchandise being sold at Hot Topic. Many people who have posted have defended the bands by saying that the merchandise is not punk rock while the bands are.

Those two statements alone make sense, but together do not. Music can be defined as punk rock, but if we are talking about punk ethics, don't you think the fact that their merchandise is sold there would be contradicting?

It's a very common belief in the punk rock community/scene to be of D.I.Y. and anti-corporation nature, but regardless of whether or not their music can be defined as punk rock, doesn't distribution through a corporation define yourself as "not punk"?

The bands may or may not have a role in this and it could easily be blamed on the record labels, but let's be honest here. When you don't ask questions, it blatantly makes them looks like sell outs. Unless of course they have attempted to fight a legal battle to have their things removed from the shelves.

And don't give me that bullshit line, oh when it's sold through a major record label or a corporation like Hot Topic, it will reach more people. That is the biggest bullshit cop out line I have fucking heard from punk bands who have sold out.

Example: Anti-Flag. Their last decent album was For Blood and Empire. They've used that very same excuse. They used to be one of my favorite punk bands, but the moment that I heard one of their songs censored (It was either on YouTube or MySpace) I was instantly was convinced that they have sold out. No punk band, no matter how great the possibility of having a greater fan base, with TRUE punk ethics, would ever allow their music to be censored.

You can defend the bands all you want by saying that maybe buying their merch through a major corporation isn't punk, but their music is, but you have to admit that there comes a point in time where you have to start questioning the band itself and wonder as to why they would allow their merch to be sold by that means.

Trophy Scars – Addict. Addicts. Lyrics 11 years ago
There's nothing wrong with straight edge and there's nothing wrong with using either, but there is a clear lack of respect on both sides. I hate when users call edge kids pussies or anything of the sort and just the same when edge kids won't shut the fuck up about how users are wastes of lives. As long as one side isn't pushing their lifestyle upon the other side and vice versa and respect each other, then there shouldn't be a problem.

Trophy Scars – No. Lyrics 11 years ago
When I first listened to this album, I thought this was just the breakdown part of Yes, but then realized they were two separate tracks. I love how both songs can stand alone and work so well together.

Motion City Soundtrack – Fell in Love Without You Lyrics 11 years ago
I always interpreted the line, "last night, I fell in love without you" in the sense that he's fallen for or quite possibly, fallen back for the girl, but the feeling isn't mutual and then tries to save face by throwing away any feelings or emotions because he knows subconsciously that it would never work out with the line, "I waved goodbye to that heart of mine beating solo on your lawn."

"only time will tell if violins will swell"
The way that I had interpreted this line was that for the girls he's fallen for, or fallen back in love with, nothing has happened yet and he is just waiting.

"The stars at night aren't as big and bright as you make them out to be." I pretty much agree with everyone's interpretation of this line, but I also see it as a way of telling the girl that something in particular just isn't that big of a deal to him, be it expensive jewelery, or a cliche date or anniversary.

I always try my best to relate my life to the songs that I listen to and this song came to mind not too long ago for me. Four years ago, this girl and I had started dating, and then two years later we broke it off. I hadn't seen her for two years. There was even a point in time where I had completely forgotten about her, but the moment that I saw her again after two years of barely ever talking to her, just the sight of her made me fall in love again and regret the fact that the relationship end. That's why I can somehow interpret as a lost love or a love. The feeling may or may not be mutual, thus the violin line.

"in memory of what we used to call 'in love'"
maybe back then they the two weren't really in love, but thought they were. it could have been a strong puppy love or an immature high school relationship.

The Sounds – Queen of Apology Lyrics 11 years ago
This song speaks to me. You know what I think? Love IS a drug. This song can be interpreted in several ways and it is what you make of it.

Evan Greer – What Friends Are For Lyrics 11 years ago
I'm surprised that no one has commented on this yet. I know that it hasn't been recorded yet, but the two versions that are available to listen to is all that it takes. This song always gives me hope. I know that I have friends that love me and I know that when I stray from the right path, my friends are there to help me see the light and I absolutely love them for that. This song always reminds of the love that my friends have for me and the love that I have for them. I love this song and I can't wait for the studio version.

We the Kings – Don't Speak, Liar Lyrics 11 years ago
If you read the bridge to The Quiet and then the bridge to this song, it kind of ties together.

So open up your friendly fire
And let me be the kill you're missing
Don't wanna see you close your eyes
Until this is over

And if the story ends here
I can't be surprised to find
Your eyes are open wide
And that I have inspired you

Owl City – Rainbow Veins Lyrics 11 years ago
This song has definitely convinced me that Adam Young is either on or at at one point was on dope. The signs are all there in this song.
