the people who listen to the used will remember the used in ten years. the people who listen to green day will remember them too. bands are only influential to the people that listen to them.
How'd I end up here to begin with? I don't know.
Why do I start what I can't finish?
Oh please, don't barrage me with questions to all those ugly answers.
My ego's like my stomach- it keeps shitting what I feed it.
But maybe I don't want to finish anything anymore..
maybe I can wait in bed 'til she comes home. and whispers....

I meant that the most original bands get remembered because they become influential and other bands incorporate their style into their own music. e.g. Black Sabbath invented "doom metal" and Iron Maiden invented power metal (well more or less). When Green Day released Dookie it was something a bit different at that time and influenced a lot of the pop-punk that came after.

i spose influence has alot to do with it youre right. i dont like green day at all anymore, but i liked dookie when i was 6 and i guess you could say bands like that are a catalyst to something better. tastes change and develope and hopefully you become more open-minded of different music and learn to acknowledge the skill and the work that goes into creating something original. cursive is a huge inspiration for me now and is one of my favorite bands because the sound is unique to me.

And over time your tastes change and grow because you change as a person. Sometimes you think "Man, how could I have ever liked that band?", but at that point in your life they had meaning and importance. Thats really how songs are too. Something that really hits home now might not have nearly as much effect tomorrow.

Bands are all related at least somewhat remotely, which is how you can be "influenced" into liking a particular genre. Hence why I believe some of the bigger "punk" bands (blink-182, Green Day), can pull people into listening to better music within the genre. I don't know if any of this is making sense. I'm tired...
I'm the lead singer and bass player for the band The Ascent (And Decline) Of Terrion.
