"Smoko" has had 20 million plus plays on Spotify now, I didn't realize theyd become such an institution, I love it

I've been listening to them since their start, and you best believe this new record will get heavy rotation at the shop I work at

Another Kind of Blues and Brand New Age are both killer punk albums for UK Subs

I'm not the biggest Jam fan either, straight up disliking quite a bit of their material as I'm not much of a mod

BUT I swear by This is the Modern World...super fun album, sounds amazing blasted out of a car

It's a great song. Reminded me a bit of the Misfits in sound, not lyrics. But that Wet Leg cover ruined it. It was so bad.

there was a Wet Leg cover? Ha

Wet Leg is amazing in how much their popularity is a music insider fabrication

I suspect Idles is the same **** but whatever

The Jam is bland and mediocre, I wouldn't bother

Shouldn't that be in Unpopular Music Opinions? The Jam are one of the great Mod bands.

An interesting take. It's a fun album, but what does it do better than the first album in your opinion?

Most people rag on This is the Modern World (album). The track itself is great though, not sure what it is about it, but it always gets stuck in my head. Been a minute since I've listened to the Jam, but I remember thinking TITMW was just an inferior version of their first record.

I'd sooner recommend the Damned than the Jam though for anyone trying to get into punk (UK Subs was a good pick tho) - but I'm guessing Big3 has already heard them. Great band.
