|bungy Reveals Dramatic Punk Closer Formula|
Some punk bands have realized the power offered by this formula. rIt rcheaply exacerbates the accessible warm fuzzy/exciting/nostalgic rfeeling rgenerated by catchy and anthemic choruses and briefly renders reveryone rcompletely gay. List is 10 examples off the top of my head
Step 1: The First 2/3 of the song. This part doesn't matter, it's only importance is to
be good but not better than the last third.
We Laugh at Danger
Step 2: The Breakdown. This is usually just the chorus played slower, but without all
the instrument noise to make sure everyone can hear the crowd singing along. Often
accompanied by clapping and gang vocals.
Tear the Place Apart
Step 2.5: Either a quick build up or a dramatic pause before Step 3
|4||Less Than Jake|
Help Save the Youth of America..
Step 3: The chorus or catchy sing along part in The Breakdown but with the
instrument noise. Often accompanied by jumping, fist pumps, straight men in flannel
|5||The Riverboat Gamblers|
The Art of Getting Fucked
Step 4: show ends on a high note
They Came for Me
Kristina's Last Song
|9||Red City Radio|
50th and Western
|10||Captain, We're Sinking|
Like the Gun in Mary Lou's Hand
