I’m sick of people whining about streetpunk bands – “they’re just copying what’s been done already,” “streetpunk is dead” – get with it; this genre is not dead, and is still very much relevant. Yeah, maybe the bands of the ‘90s and ‘00s sing about the same topics that the originators of the genre did back in the late ‘70s/early ‘80s, but look, they have to! Society is STILL dealing with the same problems. Sadly, not much has changed since then, and if bands want to expose these injustices, ever-growing encroachments on freedom, and the horrid state of the world today, then let ‘em! Please, don’t even start about how “stupid” these bands’ lyrics or sound is. Come on! At least they’re not whining about how their girlfriends left them and other such nonsense, but rather singing about real issues that affect them and all humanity for that matter.
