Not to criticize any of the bands necessarily, its just that I can't figure out the shared foundation that ostensibly links them all together....and certainly not in any way that connects to Rites of Spring or Fugazi. it just seems like some trumped up journalistic shorthand that went out of control.

Punk Rock as a term has some referential meaning to me personally, but its not a big deal to me if it is reflected in the culture at large. there are more important things to get hung up on."
