    haha, i read that. it's true... a lot of those bands do suck, but mr. brett is smart... he knows there's money in it. with all those crappy bands though, there are still some pretty good releases put out by epitaph. i think it's sort of presumptuous of the blogger to claim that the good acts associated with epitaph would leave if this were a lesser label based on the crappy bands that are also signed.

    i will say though... epitaph records started following me on instagram, which i thought was cool... until i followed them back and they kept posting photos of this ugly guy:

    I'm assuming that's the guy from Falling in Reverse they seem to have so much disdain for?

    I like if you search for Artists on epitaph's site it's got the "alumni" at the bottom. I'm still waiting for the next Deviates album.....

    Meh, it doesn't really matter to me at all anymore. As long as I can continue to find tons of top notch albums on various labels released each year (which I easily can), I won't worry about who else is on the label. No one is forcing me to listen to the crappy music. And it gives me something to laugh at to myself.

    nah, that's the guy from bring me the horizon, but they do all look alike. aside from appearances and music, i have no idea what the guy's personality is like. i just don't like looking at him, much less multiple times a day like it happened when his band took over the epitaph instagram for a day.
    even before this article, i've heard the guy from falling in reverse is a douche though. he was involved in a shooting, served time and assaulted his gf. here's his mugshot.

    Brett Gurewitz is a fellow Jew so I cut him some slack.

    Yes, he needs to run a business and count numbers.

    And maybe someone who isn't the best artist, but brings money to produce better, but less selling peeps?

    He does it, he loves hardcore punk, but also has a label to run.

    Us Jews are always crunching numbers.

    It's sorta a Yiddish thing. Epitaph is awesome.

    Tee hee. Sorry, I was in a self loathing mood.

    But still, I remember listening to this band and thinking it was lame.

    Gurewitz was up to something big...

    cant lie, its way too easy to love offspring and their shows. They're like the beach boys that way if you grew up in southern California.
