At some point over the last 10 years the Punk Scene began to lose its Angst. It might have begun when mainstream media decided to dub bands of the corporate produced, high-pitched vocal variety as "punk". Unfortunately, as some of these bands saw success among the masses, many of the punk labels responsible for the golden years of the 90's saw the dollar signs in backing a publicly palatable sound and quickly jumped on the bandwagon.
Seemingly overnight a genre known for its desperation, anger and nonconformity became known for its goofyness, whininess and catchy hooks. At the same time the old bands that built the Punk Scene of the 90's began to grow stale as their own success robbed them of the discontentment that once fueled their rage and drove their music.
But that angst is still out there. DyingScene.com was created to expose the bands that still have that fire burning inside them. It was created to pump new blood into the anemic state of true Punk Rock today and to help salvage the remains of a DYING SCENE. Source
