New generation of pop punk


Recommended Posts

The Young and the Hopeless was an awesome album for me when I was 9. I remember having a wireless CD player and taking that album with me anywhere I go back in 2002. It was my album of the year back then (Currently I'd choose Boxcar Racer of course). Whenever I listen to it nowadays though, it just doesn't blow me away like it used to.

But damn, the album does bring back good memories. 2000-2002 were probably my favourite ever years of my life. Hold On is my favourite and is still one of my all time favourite tracks. Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous is still pretty damn good and holds up well for me. The rest are just songs I can't get into although I'll admit I do sing/hum the odd line or two from the other singles haha.

Travis and MGK did the album live,

That's heartwarming. 9 years later and he has an album with Travis.

It's like All Time Low starting out as a blink-182 cover band and now Alex Gaskarth is literally in a band with Mark Hoppus. They're dreams come true for these guys and it's fun to see it.

I just heard these guys recently and I'm digging this song. Kinda reminds me of a more laid back Saves The Day.

 

Oso Oso was the last show I went to before covid hit (it was actually in October 2019). I highly recommend this Oso Oso album, it's catchy as hell and very chill. I also love their other album, The Yunahon Mixtape.

Another great addition to the pop punk Christmas song canon! I love Charly Bliss and PUP and they sound great together. This rules and actually gives me a very early 2000s Blink-ish vibe.

 

this is a really great song and a perfect addition to the pop punk Christmas canon, but why does the mix sound so weird? I feel like I’m listening to an early version. the guy from PUP sounds perfect but her vocals sound like they were recorded underwater. likewise the guitars seem buried. am I crazy? I think when I looked it said it was mixed by one of the band members of Charly bliss, and I think they need to send it to a professional engineer lol

Tangentially, ever since I heard MGK's duet with Halsey, I've thought her vocals sounded kind of Avril-ish on the track. I think Halsey sounds shrill in parts and I bet Avril would have sounded better.

I switched that song off immediately, she sounds dreadful. I'd never heard her before but yuch.

I had the same opinion as you on this with that 11 minutes song except with Yungblud. As soon as I heard Yungblud singing, I had to turn it off. Halsey I didn't mind. The MGK song called I Think I'm OK was great until Yungblud started singing.

Haha I think her vocals always seem to have some type of chorus-y effect on them, maybe that's it? I didn't think too much about the mix just since it seemed to be a DIY type of release haha

So when's the MGK/blink tour gonna happen?

I'm still listening to Tickets to My Downfall. Probably best non blink pop punk released for over 10 years

When MGK replaces Skiba, probably once Covid passes a bit.
