I didn't call Overkill D-Beat, I said, "D beat evolved out of stuff in the stylistic, energetic vein of Motorhead.".
I actually always see punks arguing about this shit. And it's stupid as fuck. That is like, the most unpunk thing you can do.
"I'm sorry, but the rules say only this can be D-Beat, it belongs to a specific artist. There can be no variations or deviance."
Because following rules and conventions down to the letter and believing in monopolistic propriety of an idea are so fucking punk.
Punk is a mindset dude. That is why Motorhead will always be more punk than people who argue about the rules of punk.
