    Korn released a Greatest Hits album-when a band like that tries to put out a greatest hits album, you know they're through before they even break up. If you couldn't figure that by their last few terrible albums that is ;)
     

  2. I used to be a huge fan of theirs back in the day, but since they stopped making good music years ago: It's about time.


    Oh, and funny you should mention Korn, Head,their "lead" guitarist just quit the band.

    Ah! That sucks. I love blink 182. :bawl:
     
  4. i don't care about blink 182,
    but i actually liked korn, despite the anti-fieldy sentiment here (mind you, i wasn't a fan of fieldy himself, but i liked the band's sound as a whole)

    Nickleback and all of the "school of Creed" bands should quit too.
     
  7. Well, so they're not really breaking up...going on hiatus is a little bit different. Who knows? In a year or two they might be back in the studio making a new album.

    Though I don't care for Blink-182's music, it is true that they've worked their asses off, touring, writing and promoting. I agree that I don't think this is really an official break-up, I think we can expect to see more of them in another 5 years or so. Of course...I guess now we'll be getting more Boxcar Racer. :spit:

    Now if only all the greats would come back off hiatus! Fugazi! At The Drive-In! PLEASE!

    Sum41 is hardly pop punk... all killer no filler, sure. pop punk... but does this look infected and chuck are not pop punk at all.
     
  10. Maybe now that Hoppus is available, Tower of Power will dump Rocco to get him. :D

    I actually heard the Flecktones are courting him heavily.

    :bag:

    I thought Hoppus had some form of cancer?

    Actually, I thought the same about Sum41, but their newest stuff is actually pretty respectable rock -- genuine rock. I nearly soiled my shorts when I first heard their newest release!
     
  14. no that was feildy... they want a bassist/ singer now

    Does he? Where's the "foot-in-mouth" emoticon?
     
  16. Great point. As much as I do not like Blink-182, there have been many a kids who started rockin because of them. Who knows how many of them will stick with it, and become solid, mature, and busy muscians.

    I agree they're more post-pop-punk, mixed with some nu-indie, and maybe a bit of retro-grunge.

    damn, i liked them too!
     
  19. HA, I never liked Blink 182. Tom Delonge couldn't sing or play guitar, and Travis wasn't anything special on drums. I have to say, Mark could at least sing, and keep time pretty well, but he was no super star uber kool bassist like some people think.
