New generation of pop punk

Yes but it's more a love letter to all those bands than an actual attempt to be those bands. Right?  That kind of makes me see it in a different light, because I think he nailed that.  I hear almost all those bands in here throughout.  

I think the classic pop punk genre is simply just dead.  

I also like the little hip hop spin he put on it to stick to his roots.

Yeah, definitely agree with you on the classic pop punk genre being dead. I couldn't even listen to a new band if they started doing that sound. I barely listen to California either. I prefer it when a band takes elements of that sound and pushes it further into a more aggressive sound like the Wonder Years did.

Listen to the new Knuckle Puck album 20/20. Pop punk perfection. 

Yeah, can't get into them either. Same with bands like Neck Deep, The Story So Far or whatever. There's just no modern pop punk band I like at all unless it's the Wonder Years. My 3 favourite bands to come from the 2010s are probably the Wonder Years, Naked + Famous and Fever 333. I'm aware Wonder Years had one album before then and two of those bands are completely different genres.

I guess when it comes to pop punk or punk rock, I was always into that late 80's, 90's and early 2000's California skateboarding vibe. All the bands I like tend to come from California like blink, Green Day, Rancid, Offspring, NOFX, AFI, Bad Religion etc. There's the odd non-California band I do like such as Alkaline Trio, Sum 41 & Yellowcard, but those three still don't share any resemblance to modern pop punk in my opinion.

Even though they were influenced by the older bands, I feel like all the modern pop punk bands share no resemblance in their sound whatsoever to the older bands unless the older band is New Found Glory.

Only just discovered Knuckle Puck during this album cycle and there are some enjoyable pop-punk songs off that record, mostly the singles though. I also genuinely don't understand the hate towards Neck Deep, never really been a fan apart from the odd song, but the new record they released this summer is solid. Punk, pop-punk whatever you want to call it, it's still out there and if you include MGK, that's 3 albums that have dropped this summer alone with some enjoyable songs. 

Tickets to my downfall is a very easy listening, enjoyable pop-punk album. Title Track, Kiss Kiss, My Ex's Best Friend and the Halsey track are all on instant repeat for me. 

Might not be everybody's cup of tea here but if it 'exposes' pop-punk and encourages artists to try something similar then I'm all for it.

Check out their older stuff as well (Knuckle Puck). A lot of really great songs.

Tier 1:

-Title Track: just can't get enough of it, it kicks ass once it gets going and is epic

-All I Know: I liked this song a ton even before seeing it was a cool homage, I love the blend of hip hop here

-Concert for Aliens: that blink vibe on the "I'm better off on the floor" sounds great, over does the lyrics a bit but great banger

-Drunk Face: this is an anthem, you either love or hate this one, I end up singing along everytime, feeling this outro..

Tier 2:

-Kiss Kiss:  Paramore-esque, it's kinda cheesy but I really dig it

-Jawbreaker:  Very catchy and good changeup on the album.  Love the prechorus

-Nothing Inside: Just a solid song, good mix of hip hop and pop punk

-Banyan Tree: I like what they're going for here, the voices was a cool touch, damn Travis

-Lonely: Did MGK have some family members pass? If so, this was pretty intense, felt those lyrics.  Bit hypocritical liking the repeat chorus line, but it works

-My Ex's Bestfriend: What can I say, it's catchy, can't deny it.

Tier 3:

-Bloody Valentine: Still like this one, was a pleasant surprise when it dropped (the cover he did before was iffy) just heard it enough

-WWIII:  It's pretty good, just trying a bit hard

-Forget Me Too: Kind of a skip for me, too generic

-Play This When I'm Gone:  Not bad, just don't end up listening to

 

Overall, great album. Genuinely surprised to be listening to it and digging it so much.  Kudos MGK.. not sure if anyone will follow this, but it has 'cajones', something any modern pop punk just lacks.  He went for something, and sprinkled in all his homages and influences throughout, while sticking true to himself and hip hop roots (or are these his roots?..). Travis killed it.  Production reminds me of Nine but songs are wayyyy better.

Life’s not out to get you by neck deep is one of the best pop punk albums of all time. Wtf is this hate?? Madness. 

Most people who hate them have never actually given them a chance, just see a bunch of young fellas loving life and doing well and want to shit all over them.

I can't say I'm that fussed on their new stuff but that album is fucking gold.

Yeah the new album is a drop in quality but it’s still good. I wasn’t fussed at first but it’s really grown on me. I can see people not really liking Ben’s vocals but they got some great tunes and like o said that album is regarded as a classic in the pop punk community

Deluxe Edition is out now, here’s the collab with The Used & Yungblud (though what happened to the other two songs with Yungblud? Saving for a duet album? lol)

Not sure how I feel about the rest of deluxe songs and he again threw his very meh cover of misery business in there

This is pretty sweet except the guitar riff is very off putting. Chorus is great though, the rest of the album is missing great choruses like this.

I think the best song on the album is a deluxe song. Hangover cure.

Other two suck.

In a year of basically no new music, this and the new killers albums are probably the only two albums of consequence for me this year. What a rough year
 

edit: listened a few more times and this new yungblud song I think is easily the second best after I think I’m okay. The chorus is so good. Can they just make a full album together?
