Desc:On somewhat of a lighter note, these guys are why the pop punk kids dressed like they did. Sort of.

This was the other possible direction music was taking pre-pop punk. The Vines were being hailed as 'The Next Nirvana', and with them were groups like The Hives and The White Stripes.

The Vines were the ones who started the skinny jeans, skinny hoodie look, along with several pop-punk stand-bys, and the kids started dressing like them. The music would likely have stood the test of time, but unfortunately, between tension between bandmates (one of my professors, recalling a Vines concert she saw, described the lead singer cold-cocking the lead guitarist), an unrelenting touring schedule, and ever-swelling mammoth egos, the band collapsed.

This left a bunch of poorly dressed kids looking for something to believe in. Enter Treble Charger/Sum 41/Avril, and the rest is tragic fashion history.

The Vines were the ones who started the skinny jeans, skinny hoodie look? Naw, dude.

I liked it better without your theory. How about "The music was good because they fucking rocked." That's my theory.

It did fucking rock. And it's a shame the band fell to shit.

Their new stuff just isn't the same.

I knew they wouldn't last because this was the only good song on the album. It's hard to be "The Next Nirvana" when your best song sounds like an unreleased demo Nirvana wouldn't have considered putting on compilation.

Still it was a good song.

"The Vines were the ones who started the skinny jeans, skinny hoodie look, along with several pop-punk stand-bys, and the kids started dressing like them."

Amazingly ignorant.

I don't have to prove me right, waxeater. I've done my research. You have to prove me wrong.

Whenever you're ready.

Guess not. Shame about that.
