Instrumental Analysis has a Friday Rant on the Sissification of Punk:
What is punk about “emo” bands? What is punk about singing song after song about girls that were mean to you and relationships that didn’t work out? What is punk about wearing eyeliner and please God tell me, what is punk about squeezing into women’s jeans? I swear I read something in Rolling Stone a year or so ago about prominent Warped Tour bands taking off together on tour stops on the hunt for women’s jeans. These are the bands that are being labeled punk? You have got to be kidding me.
Oh yeah — and he also has a bunch of punk-not-emo songs that he invites you to download and compare against your favorite emo artists.
