I think Blink 182 is more of a "pop ponk" judging by their string of recent hits. Yahoo.com puts them under "punk and hardcore", they also put Papa Roach in the same category. Mp3.com has more category choices.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
some years ago i had a punkrock mailorder and i still do underground punkrock and hardcore shows in my hometown. i also play i two bands, THE244GL (dillinger escape plan styled hc) and WHERE EAGLES DARE (a MISFITS coverband).
favourite underground punk bands are at the moment RANDY, BOMBSHELL ROCKS (both from sweden) but i also like THE DWARVES, ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT, BLINK 182 (which are totally mainstream...but really good!) and the mighty T U R B O N E G R O !!!
Gotta love 'em all...
but here' some of my faves...
Offspring (even though moving towards mainstream)
Nirvana...especially Bleach Hi-Standard
plus many many more...
is that a light at the end of the tunnel or just a train?
