    You should familiarize yourself with the word "counterculture" and stat.

    I somewhat agree with this revision, though I'm more inclined to agree with it in regards to their earlier material. Their new stuff is so polished, clean, over-produced, and safe, and I think much of it has more in common with hard rock than it actually does the spirit of punk.

    Punk was never meant to be mainstream. It was suppose to be in your face anarchy. I'm sure if you search deep enough like Iron Ape has said there are good Punk bands out there. Minor Threat never made it mainstream but people remember them and brought about the hardcore punk scene. Sure nowadays we think bands like Sex Pistols and The Clash are big must know Punk acts but they were never meant to be mainstream

    Bullet For My Valentine is metalcore I don't see any punk in them. They are of course my third favorite band
    I don't see any punk in them either, but I actually enjoy some of these guys' stuff. Quality band.

    You mean like hipsters. Hipsters don't like that odd of music at least where I live. Popular bands among hipsters are like walk the moon and the xx... those bands are bands that I listen to and I walk around wearing foo fighter and batman t-shirts... not very out of the mainstream lol

    Metalcore is a combination of hardcore punk and extreme metal... I agree they are less punk than other bands or I would of made a case for them being a punk rock band.

    I really haven't listened to any of their new stuff. So I'm not sure there. I went to see A Day To Remember last year and left before Rise Against came on stage

    Yeah they still maintain a lot of their metalcore aspects. I saw them live with Three Days Grace, Seether (no lie their lead singer looked like Kurt Cobain), Escape the Fate, and Avenged Sevenfold I still loved BFMV's performance second best to A7X

    Hipsters are one type of counterculture, and I wasn't specifically referring to them. At all. The idea was for you to figure out that genres can live and thrive outside of the mainstream and not have their respective successes be defined by play on terrestrial radio.
