Nicotine - Japanese band
I didn't find anyone (except myself :D) mentioning this band, so I have to let you know about them. Japanese pop-punk, however their music is pretty tasty, I like their songs better than many American / European bands. Their sound is a mixture of NOFX /The Offspring / Blink 182 / Sum 41/ Mest etc... with some sweet metal-songs. Lyric-wise they aren't anything special (but for japanese like themselves they do pretty well imo), but it's definately worth checking if you don't know them yet. School Of Liberty is their best (according to many people's opinion) album, so if you can, get it!
Some examples of Nicotine
"metal" song! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KPjI...eature=related
You can find some more videos on youtube.
Okay... I've uploaded School Of Liberty album, download it here -> http://www.sendspace.com/file/9bg519
Enjoy! ...and I'd like to see as more as possible opinions here :p

Yep, I have all their albums I think. The lyrics suck and their english is kinda funny, but musically, they're really kickass, those guys really know how to write good punk-rock songs.
Have you heard the album "Achromatic Ambitious"? It's their latest one, I think really awesome, cotains 80% more guitar solos than older albums:D
aye, good band. didn't know many people knew of them. Good catchy pop-punk if you want some of that, my only real problem with them is that they mention "punk rock" in pretty much every song - it gets annoying.
fucking love to see them live though.
No, I haven't heard it yet. 80% more guitar solos? Holy crap! Did they turn into metalcore or melodic death ? :D :D :D I mean Nicotine's solos allways were really great and quite often, and now you say that there are allmost twice more of them...
I'm looking for "Achromatic Ambitious" now. Can't find a download yet...
Could you upload it please, you big sexy maaaaan?! :D
There ya go. Not my upload, found it on the net. Hope it works.
The album is more rockier, but it's still punk-rock. No metal or something, just much more guitar solos compared to the album before, "Probably The Best". Speaking of PTB, there is a song "Bad Neighbor", clearly an homage to "The Offspring" :) Has anyone heard it?
Personally i dont like them and think that you managed to insult four bands at once......but thats my view and we have all got different music tastes:cool:

You're welcome. Hope you like it.
They can be a bit annoying at times, but they’re really a solid pop-punk band. I’ve only heard Desperado though.
There are links to download 2 of their albums in this thread. Do that mate, you will not regret ;)
