OPINION: 5SOS, POP OR PUNK?

Punk and pop listeners alike took to social media to argue and defend their respective genres as the August cover of Alternative Press was released to the public.

The magazine stirred controversy with its choice to feature breakout band 5 Seconds of Summer on its cover. While avid fans of the band supported the choice, many subscribers were skeptical about their place in the issue. It sparked a great debate, mostly online, about a question many have yet to figure out: are 5SOS worthy of the “punk” title?

When you break down what exactly a punk band consists of – counterculture, harsh sound and raw, emotional lyrics – 5SOS just don’t match up.

The group’s self titled album went #1 in the U.S. on pop charts, got new pop fans to follow them and received regular airplay on most pop stations. It’s no secret that 5SOS is a pop band. Every song on the album contains lyrics directed at a girl, an ex-girlfriend in some and a heartbreaker in others, with guitar riffs, catchy choruses and heavy bass. Though legendary pop punk and pop rock bands like blink-182, All Time Low and Green Day inspired the group, there is one glaring difference – the lyrics.

Blink-182 wrote songs not only about heartache and youth, but also explored heavier topics like death, grief and depression in tracks like “Adam’s Song” and “I Miss You.” All Time Low has tracks dedicated to those who committed suicide and about self discovery and acceptance like “Weightless” or “Lullabies.” These topics are absent in 5SOS’ current songs. Punk is about emotion. It evokes emotion, addresses issues fans face and ultimately creates an atmosphere that lets people know it’s OK not to be OK. The closest thing to raw emotion 5SOS gets is “Amnesia,” an acoustic number where pop undertones still run through.

In 5SOS’ case, the members’ use of instruments makes them unique in the mainstream, but the music itself sets the band apart from the punk world. Their rock roots too are not typical of the mainstream sound Capitol Records tends to put out, and it will be interesting to hear the band’s future releases.

Until then, I’m calling 5 Seconds of Summer a pop band.

Today is #InternetSlowdown Day: ” The FCC heard from so many Americans who want an Neutral Net that its website crashed. More than a million people told the FCC not to put the cable companies in charge of the Internet — less than one percent of commenters opposed Net Neutrality.

Despite the astroturfers who compared a fair Internet to Communism, messages like the scathing John Oliver rant have carried the day in the court of public opinion.

But will it convince the FCC? Will Tom Wheeler, who used to run the cable lobbyists before he became FCC Chairman, listen to his golf buddies and former colleagues, or to the people he has sworn to serve? Will the FCC be shamed into doing the thing that we all know is right?

Well, that’s up to us.

Today is #InternetSlowdown Day. It’s the day that people all over the Internet show Washington what kind of world they’re trying to make — a world of bland, cable company fuckery, where the thing that determines your success on the Internet is how well your sales force sells the cable company on the premium carriage contract — not whether you’re making something that people love and want to see.

The net neutrality campaign smashed every FCC comment record. Now we’re going to do it again.

Visit https://www.battleforthenet.com/sept10th/, and get the tools you need to participate: swell avatars for your social media uses, banners and dialog boxes you can install on your site — everything you need to help boost the net neutrality campaign from millions to tens of millions of people pledging their support for the Web we all want.

Gentlemen Broncos is a panned 2009 film with one redeeming element: a opening credits scene that used retro sci-fi art for book covers with titles that credited the cast and crew. Here are the covers and artists, along with the scene itself. The Sam Rockwell look-alike is particularly impressive.

The director/writers discuss the process here, and it’s fascinating.
