    Chillwave is absolutely nothing like punk.
    It shares A lot of the attitude of punk, cheap to get into, don't need much musical skill, gets around via word of mouth etc.

    In fact it's even fairly musically similar, punk was just fast loud pop music, chillwave is just pop music with lots of reverb on everything.

    Sorry about the bump, I've been banned for a week.

    You sounds like you know absolutely nothing about punk, it was one of, it not the most influential genres of music ever. It was so much more than just fast loud pop music.

    Point proven, you're an idiot. Enjoy your chillwave, I will stick with my ramones, clash and black flag though.

    Blag Flag? they sound good.

    But most punk rock is just pop music played a bit faster/louder, 3 chords, mostly meaningless lyrics and not much musical talent, I never said I didn't like it though.

    Yes I meant black flag.

    It depends what you mean by punk, if you mean modern, commercial punk bands then you would be right, but thats not real punk, modern bands like gallows, cancer bats, refused and so on are more punk, and they are definitely not as you described them.

    You think gallows song's are any more complicated or meaningful than pop music?

    Must say I haven't, I only have orchestra of wolves, gone off punk recently. But I really doubt it's particularly complicated or deep.

    How are they not?

    Non/anti commercial
    Musically simplistic
    Easy to get in to making

    If you really can't see the similarities you really are an idiot.

    You have shown throughout this thread that you do not understand punk at all. Dubstep is non commercial, simple and easy to make, yet it is nothing like punk.

    Punk is about what lead up to it, people annoyed at the state of the music industry, people who use music to voice their opinions, not caring what other people think making a stand for what you believe in and so much more.

    You said punk has meaningless lyrics, thats just completely untrue. Listen to minor threat, listen to the sex pistols, and tell them that their lyrics are meaningless. Punk is the most political music genre in history.

    So, like chillwave then?

    I said most punk has meaningless lyrics, and a lot of punk that is 'political' is often fairly shallow rubbish that could have been written by any 16 year old.

    And the sex pistols were utterly manufactured ****.
