The Damned - New Rose
My Chemical Romance - Helena

I saw most of the new Don Letts (B.A.D.) documentary ”Punk: Attitude” on IFC the other night (I missed the Rollins intro I think). It does a good job up to 1981, for both sides of the Atlantic, but gets a little fuzzy past that. Once they get to the mid-80s & beyond, they’re moving too quickly to really talk about anything too substantially besides Nirvana, the Year That Punk Broke & blah blah blah about the current state of “Punk”. One quote that stuck with me (I can’t remember who, Glenn Branca maybe? Thurston Moore?) was something to the effect of the OG punk being “rock inspired punk” & the new jack pop-punk being “punk inspired rock”. I’m stretching for these ends of the spectrum but I forgot that I like love the first Damned LP & like so many other got-dang MTV superhits, the video for My Chemical Romance’s Helena has worked its popgothpunk magic on me, maybe. I prob. like it for same reason I had/have a weakness for the Alkaline Trio.

Oh, I also like the part where Rollins breaks down the Limp Bizkit formula & says they'd be his fave band too, if he was 12.
