Maybe progressive is a better description.
Jeepers, they're a DIY rock band (some call it punk rock). It ain't complicated.
Yes, their style is perfectly described as punk rock. Every style they utilize, whether it be jazz, hardcore, rock, or funk, is under the punk umbrella. But one needs to understand what punk really is to see that…
I've listened to a few punk bands in the past. One thing I can tell you, though, is that most people will never like it. Even the best of the best punk bands. It's not like appreciating music, because punk is a lot more than just music. And it will never appeal to anyone who doesn't have a certain mentality.
I don't agree with any aspect of this statement.
It's something I've learned from trying to turn people on to it.
Eh, I’m not buying it. I know people that love the Minutemen but don’t enjoy “punk” music in general. And I know others who love a lot of punk/hardcore (Bad Brains, The Damned, Black Flag, The Germs, Stranglers, etc.) that don’t like the Minutemen at all. I don’t think it has anything to do with having a certain mentality. You hear a band/song and you like them/it or you don’t, simple as that.
on to "punk music"? We've already established that punk doesn't "sound" like anything in particular - it's an ethos of making music and all that comes with it. Something like "anyone can start a band." But the minutemen proved that that ethos does not dictate a lack of proficiency; they were some proficient m effers. So what's this "mentality"? Negativity? Nope, because see Fugazi, Bad Brains and other - some of the most positive people on the planet. Ok then what is it? It's what @josephbass86 said - you like it or you don't, from listening to it. Anything else is just closed mindedness.
That's funny, I was gonna say the exact opposite! They are both experimental and pop. One of the most creative (read experimental) bands, but still great catchy songwriting (read pop) despite the experimentation.
I've seen a study showing the psychology between musical preference and certain attitudes. For example, people who preferred top 40 were more agreeable, trustworthy, etc. Don't quote me but something like that.
It was a hard pill to swallow.
I think ElectroVibe has a point, that maybe most people are not very open-minded with music and thus for them the term "punk" carries a stigma or baggage; they may never observe, let alone understand, the variety and nuance that the proverbial "we" do.
Whereas people who preferred avant-garde music might be more open minded, but perhaps not as dependable or trustworthy. Again don't quote me, but something along those lines. It was what you would probably expect from common sense.
I saw one like that, but for metalheads! It suggested that they were same! Naturally, I agreed with the article, because I'm a metalhead too!
I wouldn't trust Mr. Bungle, either
So if someone likes any kind of music that isn’t top 40/pop, they are not trustworthy people?
Dang, that means me, most of my friends, a lot of my family members, my boss (huge punk/metal head), and probably a lot of members of Talkbass can’t be trusted at all! That’s too bad. I’ll let ‘em know.
That sounds like junk science at its best. I’d love to see their "data."
Firehose! For the win. I've been listening to a lot of their songs today. I wish I had heard them back in the day.
The sad thing is, now I can remember a friend telling me about them. Firehose. But he described how they had started and it didn't even click that I might actually like them. I imagined a more hardcore kind of thing.

Would you believe I just watched that on Sunday. Lol
