Yeah, whether or not they were truly "punk" doesn't matter. But I don't think Dude Ranch was as much of a behemoth as Dookie or Enema of the State.
How are we seriously discussing the merits of Blink-182?
Via a music message board.
Creed was one of, if not THE, biggest band in america for about four years and spawned a batch of imitators that kept the constipated trend going well into the 00s. Are they iconic, too?
Yes. Iconic doesn't necessarily mean good.

Your horrific opinion has been noted, thanks.
Anyone else going to the KCRW masquerade ball?
I was thinking about it...but $100 seems a little steep. But i'll end up paying that much at a random bar anyway.
Can we maroon Metallica there forever? PLEASE?!?!
I finally saw Unknown Mortal Orchestra last night (in Chicago) and man-o-man can those guys play. What a show. They played for about 85 minutes and closed the set with a 10-minute cover of a Can song (not sure exactly what it was called). Really talented and professional musicians.
Woot! Jon Hopkins/Clark/Nathan Fake earlier in the night then DJ Harvey 9hr set starting at midnight!
DJ Harvey will land in New York City for a gig on November 16th.
The English-born DJ is renowned for both the length of his sets and the variety he manages to squeeze in, often encompassing everything from disco to psych rock and lots in between. A pivotal figure in UK dance music history, he's had a bit of renaissance in recent years, becoming a regular at vaunted clubs and nights like Berghain, Robert Johnson and A Club Called Rhonda, among others. He's also found success as a producer with his Locussolus project on International Feel.
The New York show, co-presented by Rong Music and Benny Soto, is one of just a few US gigs Harvey has played this fall. It'll take place at a secret location (to be revealed later), with no opening or closing DJs—Harvey will spin all night. :winkiss
There aren't a whole lot of Harvey mixes online (his 2012 RA Podcast being one rare exception), but you can hear a brief session from him over at RBMA Radio.
vaunted clubs like a club called rhonda?!?!!
Anyone living near the Echoplex, please go check out my friend Sahba tonight as he will be playing with Soph Knapp, Alana A Amram, and Jay Israelson! I think Au Revoir Simone is on the bill as well:)
A Winged Victory for the Sullen "US" (cough NJ/NY and some throwaways) tour:
Do they live in Montclair, NJ? What's going on there?
No, one of them lives in Belgium and one in LA. I assume the university there or whatever is paying for the production of Atomos to do a residency.
Anyway, shakermaker misses the point, my gripe is that this will likely be their entire tour for the country, unless they want to play the Satellite again I guess.
Portugal. The Man tonight @ The Ventura Theater, probably going to hit up Surf Brew in Ventura or get some Diners, Drive-in, and Dives grub on at The Kitchen (the have a pretty decent taplist of good craft beer) in Oxnard before.
