For those about to rock, I salute you!
“I think we all kind of realized subconsciously — it wasn’t something I dialogued too much about as a person — all day, as I let the iPod play on shuffle, that you know bands like the Sex Pistols, aren’t just punk rock. The Ramones, they’re not just punk rock. Danzig is not metal. Metallica is not simply thrash and Bob Marley is not just Reggae. The good stuff rises above the genre and just becomes good music, straight up rock and roll. If you have to categorize it, fine. But the good stuff just becomes rock ‘n’ roll in the end. From Elvis to J.Cash, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Clash, black flag — to me it’s all just rock ‘n’ roll. For me to have tapped into that and shaken off the influence and narrowness of the punk or hardcore genre has been very liberating. I’m still a Hardcore Kid in spirit but at the end of the day, I JUST WANNA ROCK & ROLL!!!” (Irviano)
