Guitar and bass parts: Good Riddance, circa Ballads of the Revolution. Drumming: NOFX, circa White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean, the easier parts. Breakdowns: Hot Water Music, circa Fuel for the Hate Game. Vocals: hey at least he’s not crying into his socks. Proficient, but woefully predictable and done immensely better by hundreds of bands (starting with the three just mentioned). Melodicore’s been effectively strip mined. You gotta dig way deeper to find some audio gold (or even something that doesn’t sound like a bunch of already desiccated musical notes).
