    yeah what happened to those sick Green Day basslines? A good bassist in a punk band sets 'em apart from other stuff. I don't think I'd like Rancid nearly as much without Matt Freeman's crazy fuckin fingers

    He plays that shit like a madman! I'm exactly the same as you, Foxxe. I wouldn't like Rancid half as much without that bass.

    Ha ha fuckin likewise, my bassist friend played me Maxwell Murder on a mix CD he had and we were both just like "fuck..." Now he's got the notes for the first two bars of the solo tattoed on him. But he still can't fuckin play it all!

    Thats where the elitist part comes in.

    Less than jake fans might not be SB6 fans and thats cool. But if the Less Than Jake fans looked down on the SB6 fans and told them they were wrong and they should like Less Than Jake, thats a problem.

    So if somebody comes up and tells a band that they should playing something else, thats a problem to.

    Well it would be if anyone cared what people like that say.

    You sir are correct.

    I generally lean towards modern ska but there's most definatly a time, place and mood for the old stuff. And there's always a time and place for BOTAR which I have on now and is awesome
