I noticed there wasn't an introduction thread so I figger'd I'd start one.

Hey.
I grew up on punk. My older brother played bass in punk bands during the4 late 70's and early 80's.

My favorites are The Clash and Sex Pistols. You can call me cliche, but I say I am traditional.

I played bass in Dogs of War, a punk & hard rock inspired band for 6 years.

I'm currently the lead singer of Natural Outlaw, a band with influences in punk rock, goth rock, and glam rock.

Some of my greatest musical inspirations: The Sex Pistols, David Bowie, Joy Division, The Beatles, The Who, The Cure, The Clash, Velvet Underground, and Siouxsie & The Banshees.
My Vocal Inspirations: John Lennon, Roger Daltry, and Freddy Mercury.
Lyricist Inspirations: David Bowie, Ian Curtis, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Trent Reznor.
Poetical Inspirations: Arthur Rimbaud, William Blake, John Milton, Charles Baudelaire, William Wordsworth, Edgar Poe, and Voltaire.
Some of my idols: Sid Vicious, Jim Morrison, Iggy Pop, Hide Matsumoto.

I have some experience with keyboards and have played with both piano, synth, and harpsichord. My vocal range is diverse [Baritone-Alto]

Aside being a musician I am a student of psychology and my passions and hobbies are plinking; I also do trap shooting and quickdraw competitions, martial arts, literature, and cooking.

Hey Im Tiff Ive been intrested in punk since I was a kid but when I was younger I was always scared to be different then everyone else so I never acted or did what I truly wanted to until now, but because I have alot more confidence in myself and don't care what anyone thinks I dress how I want and act how I please and im alot happier!

I started playing the bass in september after my friend Ryan told me he would show me how to play. But im kinda getting bored with it so I think im going to switch to guitar.

Some of my greatest musical inspirations: Linkin Park, maximum the hormone, Bullet for my valintine, billy talent, sex pistols, eric clapton, guns n roses and lots more influence me.

my only idols are: Sid Vicious and cortney love (hahaha)

My life right now is pretty laid-back and I dont have much responsability besides my part time job cuz I still live at home and I don't have any chores so its pretty easy the only stress right now is my moms pressuring me to go to college but I still dont know what to take and I already reserched the college three times and dont want to take any of the courses.

Aside being a slacker my passions and hobbies are causing trouble, hanging with my friends, listening to music, pissing people off, reading manga, learning new things and many more just too lazy to write them at the moment.

The only punk band you listed is the Sex Pistols.
The Strokes, good as they may be, are Alternative Rock with Grunge and Post-Punk influences.

Sum 41, Blink 182, and Simple Plan are whiny bubble-gum pop emo bands fronted by singers who can't sing. [First thing you learn in vocal training: Sing from the abdomen. NOT the throat and MOST CERTAINLY NEVER the nose. They all sing nasally and thus are not correctly singing at all.]

They are often cited to be "pop-punk," which by the way is an oxymoron, and is NOT directly related to punk at all. Infact pop-punk is a subgenre of Power Pop [limb of pop] and inspired by the fashion of Post-Hardcore [the remnant of 'Hardcore' which is inspired yet not directly sub-related to Hardcore Punk; a subgenre and departure from traditional punk.
So pop-punk is no way related to punk. It's a defilement, a raping, and an oxymoron that makes absolutely no since and is thus invalidated.
