If you're the kind who needs to be jolted to consciousness quickly in the morning, these bold, brash tunes by punk pioneers and current-day torch-carriers are just the kind of loud-and-clear wake-up call you need.
With the fast tempos of traditional punk, today's pop punk prominently features electronic keyboards and hi-fi production for an accessible, radio friendly sound.
Hit The Lights,
Fall Out Boy,
Saves The Day,
Enjoy the brash irreverence of these pop-punk bands from the early 2000s. Though the band members may have been well into their 20s or even (gasp!) 30s, they understood the appeal of arrested adolescence.
New Found Glory,
Fall Out Boy,
Listen to essential songs by The Only Band That Matters (and its members' side projects) as well as their greatest influences, contemporaries, and followers.
Whether you're quitting your job, complaining about the government or otherwise sticking it to The Man, these classic punk songs will make the perfect soundtrack for your moment of defiance.
Whether you're feeling nostalgic for emo's heyday or experiencing the delirious ups and downs of first love, these romantic emo and pop-punk tunes from the late 90s and early 00s will leave you swooning in the backseat.
The Early November,
Feel right at home in the legendary Hotel Chelsea in a room next to Tom Waits and below the ghosts of Sid and Nancy with these classics and deep cuts about sleaze and seduction.
Punk may not be known for its sentimentality, but these tunes would leave Sid and Nancy swooning. So grab your partner by the studded dog collar and bask in punk-rock puppy love.
