...the "in-style" music genre is a total free-for-all. MTV used to be the gauge to determine what was cool to listen to (for the outcasts that is), but now it's nothing but shit. The day that bands like Limp Bizkit, Korn,
Britney, BSB, N*Sync, Papa Roach, Blink 182, and shit like that top the charts on MTV is the day that I resort back to Old School. That day was many many moons ago. I can't say what would be fitting for J&SBSB because I haven't seen it, but I'm sure ICP is tied with about twenty other bands for the last choice of bands to put on the soundtrack.
Personally, I've been getting to the roots of Punk. Back when it was about fast tunes, nifty-keen melodies and teen angst is when it was best. Before Blink 182 ruined the name of punk, it was: The Ramones, Sonic Youth, Green Day, and for the more hardcore fans like myself: Dead Kennedys, FYP, Black Flag, Sex Pistols, Minor Threat, and even a little Dystopia. The only "Punkish" song by Blink 182 is "Dammit", everything else is bullshit. The only band that I have confidence might show up on the soundtrack is Weezer, but I'll have to wait until the movie comes out to compile a neat little list in my bunker as I eat can after can of dog food, preparing for the impending Doomsday.
