Alkaline Trio : Private Eye
You can still jump up and down to it but you don't have to have a mental age of 12...
Mercifully for us, but perhaps tragically for them, Alkaline Trio have higher standards than most post-Green Day mosh morons, steering away from slapstick choruses towards an edgier style with no dumbo lyrics and a nice film noir twist. You can still jump up and down to it but you don't have to have a mental age of 12.
A thrashcore band you could almost mention in the same breath as originators Husker Du.
