Lets talk about some Pop-Punk bands that use Keyboards, shall we!? I like Panic! At The Disco, The AKAs, The (new) Aquabats, Head Automatica, and Hellogoodbye, but those are pretty much the only ones that i know.

Blink uses some keyboard/piano in their stuff. Not all of it, but actually a fair bit.

Old Suicide Machines use keyboards that sound good. Some ALK3 from Crimson have good songs with nice keyboarding. Well its more piano. Same difference.

The new Thrice album pushes "Pop-Punk," but it has lots of keyboards. (My choices were all named already)

yeah, they have the organ sound in their ska songs. isnt it wierd how alot of ska bands use alot of organ (keyboards) in there songs but dont use it live? Big D, Mu330, Suicide Machines, The Toasters, etc.

Keyboards are a huge part of ska. Probably more important than horns in the right scenario. (Streetlight wouldn't be Streetlight without horns, but keyboards can make a piece ska easier than horns)

well neither truly define "Ska", but i think more bands should catch on to the keyboard trend in ska, and than play with keys live. Have you ever heard "North of Montague" By The Bruce Lee Band? It's off the newest cd. it is completely amazing though, and has an excellent keyboard line. You can dl for free on the Asian man Rec. website. I recommend you do so.

Thursday's keyboards are hard to hear, other than in "This Song has Been Brought to You..."

Dude, Emery's keyboardist is nuts live. He's worth the $7 and 2 hour wait alone.

I've only seen them on video live and he's always going crazy it's very entertaining. Is it weird that I live just north of portland and I've NEVER seen Emery live? I think so...

SKSK's keyboardist is insane live too. He could easily be the frontman with all the energy he puts out on stage.

I know! I saw them at the Fat Tour, and I was just kind of expecting them to be a filler band, but they were amazing.

I think their only really good song is "I Can Revive Him With My Own Hands" from their first EP.

White walls, The worst is yet to come and Kelsey are three other solid tracks. Infact the whole album is amazing imo.

What Minor Threat song has keyboards in it? Lots of Screeching Weasel songs have keyboards in them and it makes the songs way catchier.

Panic! At The Disco


I thought the band's name was just At the Disco and Panic! was just a song. I don't know, I've never listened to them, so correct me if I'm wrong.

The Epoxies... I saw em live with NOFX a couple of years back.

They dressed funny. Other than that I wasn't really that impressed...
