“Around the same time Brand New’s Jesse Lacey was singing songs about wishing his ex-girlfriend would die in a plane crash because she had the audacity to do a semester of college abroad, he was coercing underage girls into sending him nudes.
When he was singing songs about plying women with alcohol and then fucking them in the carpark while they were blackout drunk, he was masturbating on webcam in front of horrified teenage girls.
These things are not unconnected. The fact that those girls felt they couldn’t publicly share what happened to themuntil more than 10 years later, now that they are nearly 30 years old, is no coincidence. The lyrics sung by their heroes and groomers in bands like Brand New, Fallout Boy, Weezer and New Found Glory set them up as prey for sensitive emo men.”
