Mark Hoppus Bass got cool looks, IMHO. He used to write interesting basslines but it keep get simpler and simpler, more uninteresting. During the day of cheshire cat and dude ranch, there are to me one of the coolest punk basslines. But in enema and take off... they cannot be heard anymore. The bass solo in ANTHEM PART 2 consist of only 3 notes... The latest album really disappoint me alot... I used to look up to him a lot. Now there's a decrease.... i started to notice fat mike of NOFX, the songs " 180 degrees", "all outta angst" to me, have really cool basslines. "180 degress" basslines sounds like Carribean pirates songs. Anyone have any opinions about mark? The music industry are degrading. Bass are becoming less and less popular, some even look down on it. The reason why i was still listening to punk rock is that it have basslines that i enjoy a lot. THE IDIOTS ARE TAKING OVER PEOPLE NOWADAYS THINK THAT MAKING MUSIC NO ONE EVER HEARD IS REALLY ABSURD.
