Honored to be asked to write for Michael Azerrad’s The Talkhouse. I wrote about growing up Gen Y2K, discovering Fucked Up, and their new LP, #GlassBoys.

I get worried about growing up and what that means to being myself. Fucked Up helps me realize that I can have both, that I can have a clean home (specifically, a clean bathroom) and still be punk as fuck. That it’s OK to have the same core values at 30 that I did at 15. That rebellion doesn’t die with age, it just takes on a different form. That punk can be smarter than a palette of seven basic chords. That it can have more depth than just loud guitars and someone yelling. That it still has something important to say.
