No they are not they are classic punk or punk revivalists. They have nothing at all to do with the modern pop-punk movement.

They're pop punk. Don't get all defensive. Maybe they're older stuff was more 'punk' but they still fit under this category. And your last sentence is pretty much wrong.This Message Edited On 02.06.07

Well I guess it depends upon if you consider this album to be a total departure from their old sound, which even you admit was definitely punk. I still don't find even their new stuff to be in any way pop-punk. That's like calling Rush Metal or calling Death Cab for Cutie Emo. (both of which I have heard)



And I'm not at all defensive, I'm simply arguing my point. :-) *peace*

*sigh* I still see no relation between Decemberunderground and something like FOB, Paramore, or The All American Rejects.



Since I despise the Apparatuses with a burning passion, I'm afraid the band which holds my undying musical allegiance getting lumped in with them is something taht would offend me lol.

I wouldn't call decemberunderground pop-punk in some normal sense. It's it's own breed of pop-punk. It's pop-punk, yes, but in the All Time Low, Fall Out Boy, Say Anything sense.

Decemberunderground is most definitely pop-punk, in the exact same vein as FOB and Paramore and AAR.



Also it's a piece of shit.

I disagree about DU but taht's a whole different banana (I totally just made up that expression). I rather liked it, though not nearly as much as any of their previous albums.



At any rate I still don't see any relation between it and the aforementioned bands. AFI, even at their lowest point, still manage to be utterly unique IMO.

Yess someone re-categorized them as punk. I am pleased. I was rather embarassed that pop-punk was making up 32% of my album scores.



I'll probably regret posting this but oh well.

They are certainly more pop than punk now by a long shot.

No they are a punk band. Do you want to fight over it?

Who actually got away with changing them to Punk?

Wow I didn't intend to set you all off like that. The only reason I brought it up is because NOTINTHEFACE seems somewhat ashamed of being associated with something that has "pop-punk" attached to it.



I hope you all don't argue about genres like this all the time.This Message Edited On 02.21.07

If it's impossible, then why are you attempting it.

I think we should make it so different albums by one artist can be put under different genres.

Can you make that happen as a mod, Iluvatar?

I am most certainly not ashamed of liking pop-punk. The pie in my profile isn't lying when it says that it comprises 25% of what I listen to. I'm simply adamant about that fact that even at their poppiest (Decemberunderground) AFI don't sound even remotely close to a pop-punk band.

I'm glad I could change it back to punk. This band is PUNK I have no doubt about it. Even so I have to agree to the fact that Decemberunderground went preaty deep into pop-punk, but in my opinion that isn't enough to clasify tihs band as pop-punk.



BTW this is an awsome album.
