First of two parts below. I sort of trailed off in part two as it started getting into bands I don't love (Green Day among them), but the subject came up recently when I was trying to explain to a friend 12 years my junior what I'd heard by the time it came along.

I now see it as more authentic than I thought at the time, doc does a good job of explaining the unfair rap "pop punk" has sometimes had.


“Don’t overplay. Don’t overplay. Less is more. It will always be: less is more. Nobody is ever going to remember all those fancy solos - even the guys that play them, most of them won’t remember - so play some licks that people can walk away humming, that people can identify with." --Steve Cropper
