    The basic musical difference is that old school is punk and new school 
    is metal.

    "it's actually really simple. new school is kinda like slayer, only 
    the 'kids' pretend it has something to do with hardcore. i see it as 
    cheap metal.  old school (THE ONLY SCHOOL!) on the other hand is 
    precisely the other way around: fast and positive."

    "Actually, "old school" depends on how old you are. If YOT is old 
    school, then you need to reach back a little further into the Teen
    Idles/Minor Threat days. And that wasn't always positive. The big
    difference for me is that new school is a lot more exclusionary, a 
    lot less fun, and has bigger pants."
