    This would be better in Misc.

    I grew up with Op Ivy, and I still think "Last Wave Rockers" is woefully underappreciated.

    Rancid are alright, but I feel that I've grown out of them. They seem so cartoonish now. They still have some solid tunes though.
  3. I too, have grown out of rancid. I used to absolutely love that band...now I find myself skipping through a lot of tracks when I listen to their cds.

    Never gave common rider a spin, and never was a big op ivy fan, exception of a few songs.

    "Let's Go" and "Out Come The Wolves" still recieve some spin time on occasion though.

    Op IVY is great of course. Rancid's first record was amazing then IMO they went down a very "postcard" punk road, but that is okay cuz they weren't trying to change the face of music.
    I would recommend listening to Jesse Michael's band "Big Rig" or Dave Mello's band "Schlong"
    Links to both bands below

    Back in the day I was definitely into Op Ivy, Rancid less so, I was already moving beyond punk/HC. Never heard of Common Rider. Sounds like an insurance term.
  8. I prefer Operation Ivy, but still really like a lot of the Rancid stuff, especially the short, harder stuff like I Am Forever.

    I love Rancid and Operation Ivy. I listened to nothing but Lets Go over and over and over for 4 days straight. A good 3-4 full listens per day. Mind you, this was like a month ago...and I'm 31 years old :)

    I don't believe I've ever listened to Common Rider...I'll check it out.
