Let's be real, someone off the street wouldn't even know what pop punk is so you would just say that you listen to punk rock music.

We need to do more of these battles. They’re good fun. Do a big battle of the bands including the Beatles, nirvana, Queen, REM etc  Yeah I’ll smash my house up when Oasis lose to Nickelback

Use this thread to complain about the tournament and continue arguments from individual battle threads after they get locked. Full list of bands in case you don't want to zoom in on the above ima

Need album recommendations for the following:

Saves the Day

Lagwagon*

MxPx*

The Story So Far*

The Queers

Sugarcult*

Neck Deep

The Mr. T Experience

Fenix TX

Jawbreaker
 

Sell me on these bands.

 

* means I’ve heard occasional songs and thought they were okay but never sat down and listened to a full album.

Brand New is easily my favourite listed - calling them a pop punk band isn't exactly in line with the majority of their output though.
Otherwise Motion City Soundtrack is the only pop punk band listed here I return to more than once every 4 months or so.

For The Story So Far I’d recommend What You Don’t See and for Sugarcult I’d recommend Lights Out. Two albums I love, especially the Sugarcult one.

^looking at your sig - I always lumped Jimmy Eat World in with the pop punk and blink-182 adjacent bands. They're more pop punk than Brand New at any rate - surprised they're not on the list.

I support Cheerios’ The story so far recommendation, but if you should happen not to enjoy What You Don’t See I’d still give Proper Dose a go because they’re really different but both are great records.

for Neck deep I’d go for their newest one.

They weren't recommended as much. There was a nomination thread.

This is why I love you! You get the jokes and it's a blast. You and @_Bagel both are my soul mates and I'm glad I found you. You're not like the other people here in the trailer park.

I'm adding @Machine Gun Smelly to that list as well ... we had our troubles but he's a good egg.

We’re here to stay brother, misquoting sopranos for eternity. lots of love x

@Machine Gun Smellyis a good egg. I’d whisk him and eat him.

@Russel Coight can’t remember if people recommended Jawbreaker tunes for you. Boxcar, Indictment, Chemistry and Bad Scene Everybody’s Fault. If it can sway you, dear god. Also I haven’t said hello to you in a while. Hi 🙋‍♂️

I actually don't consider them pop punk really, but other people were nominating them for this so I did too haha. one of my favorite bands regardless.

Yeah it's kind hard to pick for TSSF because to me all four albums have a distinct style that's different. My personal fav is Under Soil and Dirt but I enjoy them all.

This past month I saw two of their online concerts. one where they played Futures in full and another where they played Clarity in full. Two amazing albums. They're so good live. I really miss actual in-person concerts so much. I want to see them again badly.

Okay thanks for the suggestions thus far. Will give them a run this weekend.

Nobody did them yet. So thank you. Which album do you think I should check out first if I wanna start with an album as opposed to just individual songs?

Also hello. How are you? I’ve been regretting not getting to meet you properly in the zoom chat the most (outside of maybe Mark but only just) I’d really like to just sit there and chew the shit with you so I hope it happens again soon. Also Kay says you’re a hottie and I’m a big fan of hotties so I’m into it.

To be fair, I also told him during the zoom call that he looks a lot at my cousin. Maybe I'm just fucked in the head.

Well I still think if we’re talking pop-punk, 24 Hour Revenge Therapy is the way to go. Punchy two and a half minute numbers. It’s more lighthearted in places. Dear You is more polished, but it gets darkkkk.

im very well thank you chap. My addiction to the board has gone up ten fold lately but fuck it, community. Haha, bless ya mate , I’m the same. I was gutted not to see your face.Look forward to hearing your dulcet Aussie tones and chat over a beer. We’ll get that chance mate, let me know whenever is good for you and we can work something from across the pond. Our love stretches that far. Hot recognises hot, we all sweltering here
