With their jagged bangs in their face, with their smudged guyliner and their constant brooding: Hook me up! I love when they wear hoodies with the hoods up and shove their hands into the front pockets. They hate bands that sell out but seem to be at the mall every weekend. That's alright, I'll look the other way at their hypocrisy.
They aren't particularly nice people unless you are in a cool band or know someone in a cool band, but I kinda love how they mope around and take everything all seriously. But, how seriously can you take a 5'6 dude in girls' jeans? I just wanna pinch their little cheeks!
I'm gonna get flamed for this, but their music rocks too. Saosin, My Chemical Romance, Coheed and Cambria, Alkaline Trio, Motion City Soundtrack, Paramore, Cobra Starship, We The Kings and Fall Out Boy; the list goes on and on. Oh, and adding either The Misfits, Black Sabbath and/or the Descendants to their favorite bands section of their MySpace page shows me that they know what's up and that they can keep it real. Nice.
I tip my hat to you, mallpunks. One day, I hope to be the inspiration for the continual status updates on your carefully curated online profile and that you will put:
Status: Kinda pumped about this tall, rad girl I met at Warped Tourand have it be about me! Keep wallowing in your first world problems and applying makeup with an unsteady hand. Your angst looks very, very good on you.
