Absolutepunk.net is a website devoted to music of all kinds, not just punk music.
On the homepage you will find a news feed, which has stories that deal with the music industry, although there are also stories that are just general interesting news. If you go to AP and only use the front page, you are missing out on the fun that is the forums. There anything can be discussed, and depending on the thread, you can actually find some interesting conversation. The site is informative, interesting, and is something any music lover should consider joining.
There are however, things I don't particularly care for. While it is great that everyone has a voice, you may find that at AP, there are sometimes too many naive people talking about things that they quite frankly don't know anything about. While most members aren't like this, you are bound to run into your fare share of people you will learn to hate. As a generalization, the members of AP are a stubborn group. Any "debates" eventually come down to online name calling, and not many people are looking to have a civilized conversation. On the flip side, there are members that have truly compelling things to say, and you will undoubtedly stumble upon many interesting facts, websites, and other random items if you should decide to troll the forums. You may make some great connections with people who share your taste in music. As it is with every site, you will get your losers, and you will get contributors.
is a great source for all your music and industry news. It is informative, and offers a unique experience in the forums and in the news articles. Anyone looking for yet another website to add to their list of things to do online should check this out. The site often has exclusive downloads, and inside scoops into what is happening in the music world.
Bottom line, Absolutepunk.net
is a very exciting place to be if you are a music lover like I am.
