When I was much younger... I'd say I was really into punk. Not until recently have I really started listening to it again. Old school punk is not like what punk is now (or even in the 90's). Old punk was more pop with an edge. You felt bad for just listening to it. It was a pretty good feeling actually. My new found love is Wreakless Eric (Whole Wide World). If you haven't heard it ... Please give it a try.
The song actually makes me want to jump on a plane to anywhere ... And do anything.
