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,
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus,
Enjoy the brash irreverence of these pop-punk bands from the early 2000s. Though the bandmembers may have been well into their 20s or even (gasp!) 30s, they understood the appeal of arrested adolescence.
Fall Out Boy,
New Found Glory,
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.
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.
