I’ve been sticking with this speech since I met 5 Seconds Of Summer. I’ve always stated that All Time Low were Green Day’s babies. But now, they have their own babies too. And that’s how I came up with the idea. The pop punk generations.
These three bands make me happy. My favorite teenage years band above them all, the grandfathers. Inspiration to me and them, the bands below. Fathers and sons. Keeping pop punk alive. Keeping the punk spirit alive. Giving us great songs, future anthems, making us smile, cry and want to break necks. That’s what punk’s about. Ramones of our generation. A pop punk generation.
I saw a post saying that 5 Seconds Of Summer was the first band playing their own instruments on the VMA’s since Green Day in their 2012 performance. Yes, talk about passing the torch.
They all make me proud.
today was my last day in my creative writing class and my teacher gave everybody a piece of paper to write down a contract and to put it in our wallets. she said she did the same thing when she was younger and every now and then she’d brush by it and remember that she wanted to write. everybody took time to write out what they wanted and I just sat at the back of the class, sitting on the windowsill and I knew there was only one thing to write but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. at the end of the class after everybody left, I went to thank her for the year, and she told me that people should be reading my words for a long time, but they won’t be able to do that if I’m not around to write them. I showed her the blank piece of paper, and she said it was okay not to write anything, and then I wrote this. I learned the power of words in that class, I learned it was okay to vomit up half a dozen notebooks stained with blood and exploded pens because it means you have something to say.
