Evan Mumford On Why Television Zombie by OUTTACONTROLLER is Perfect

1) Television.
2) Girlfriend.
3) Quitting a job.

These three pop punk tropes are examples of why pop punk can be the greatest genre or the absolute worse. Tropes #1 and #3 aren’t so much troublesome as they are tired; it’s #2 that is the problem child. This is where pop punk straddles the line of being charming & romantic and creepy & sexist. You show me Jawbreaker’s “Want” and I’ll flash Screeching Weasel’s “I Don’t Wanna Be Friends.”
