It’s also hard to believe that there was a time that pop punk was just one of the many subgenres of punk, like emo. When I hear either of those terms to describe a band now, I cringe as aural sounds of bland pap overwhelm my brain.
Gutwrench would’ve been considered pop punk when this was released. They might be even considered what pop punk is now if the sound was cleaned up, but thankfully it wasn’t. Flex thinks the recording sucks, but if it was better the tunes might be a little too radio friendly, especially ‘She Hates My Guts’.
