|Favorite Punk / Pop Punk / Emo / Ska Albums Of All Time|
Here are my top favorite albums from my top favorite genres. If you have any rec's, that would be appreciated.
|1||Taking Back Sunday|
Tell All Your Friends
I heard this album when I was 12 and i still to this day come back to it and listen to it all the way through.
Whenever I listen to American Football, I am instantly transported to Tibet where I am meditating and smoking very potent weed with monks. It's that good.
Heads Are Gonna Roll
This is an incredibly underrated pop/ska record. True, some parts sound like Smashmouth but for the most part it's amazing.
|4||The Wonder Years|
The Greatest Generation
Even though I know all the words they still hit me and the album gels perfectly as a whole piece.
- On The Mend -
This is a local band from my hometown and this album is extremely relateable, catchy and well done. Check them out if you haven't already.
|6||Red City Radio|
The Dangers of Standing Still
My whole infatuation with midwestern gruff-punk music came because of RCR. These punk anthems never grow old.
Heart Beats Pacific
Although Banner Pilot writes the same song over & over I still love them to death. Simple yet sweet.
Ryan of this band is the most honest and funny man alive. His band, though controversial has songs that are well written and makes me feel like I'm in Ohio with him while listening.
|9||Forever Came Calling|
Forever Came Calling really took me by surprise. On first listen I clumped them into the stereotypical pop-punk bands but me seeing them live changed that big time. Can't put this album down.
|10||Macklemore and Ryan Lewis|
Though Macklemore isn't a punk band I thought I'd throw him in here because his lyrics are clever, up front and honest and really drew me into rap and hip hop more than anyone I'd ever heard.
|11||My Chemical Romance|
The Black Parade
MCR is the band that really drew me into punk surprisingly. Through them I found out about blink-182; and before I knew it i was here.
Though a few lyrics make me roll my eyes the melodies and instrumentals are stellar. This album is a classic front to back.
|13|| ||Captain, We're Sinking|
The Future Is Cancelled
This album is so perfectly written in every sense.
On The Impossible Past
No explanation needed.
This album has incredible melodies and if you really think on it, NO other bands sound like Dillinger Four.
|16||Four Year Strong|
Enemy of the World
I am not a fan of Easycore but this album kicks ass on so many levels. Unique in every sense.
|17||The Get Up Kids|
Something to Write Home About
This album is amazing, quirky and sad. Love it with all my soul.
|18||The Hold Steady|
Boys and Girls In America
I am annoyed by Craig Finn's face but his lyrics are a whole other story.
Home, Like NoPlace Is There
24 Hour Revenge Therapy
I got pumped.
This truly is heartbreaking music.
|22||The Lawrence Arms|
This is my jam...sometimes.
|23||Less Than Jake|
Less Than Jake have been at it so long and have been because...um...they're good.
|24||Motion City Soundtrack|
Commit This To Memory
A well written, perfectly produced pop album. Solid stuff.
|25||None More Black|
This Is Satire
His voice is so unique and the songs are so well written.
Wearing Thin - Single
I can't go through this and not advertise for my band. Check us out - outlooksd.bandcamp.com
|27||The Promise Ring|
Nothing Feels Good
This is rockin', you should listen to it.
Stumbled across them on accident. A fun, dancy, indie pop record.
I have loved every Say Anything release over the years and this is by far my favorite.
I Hate Music
Mixtapes frequently rips off Superchunk and i fully understand why and appreciate it.
|31||The Story So Far|
Under Soil and Dirt
Though many things this band does annoys me I still can appreciate this album.
When Love Is Lost
This EP is played into my ears at least once a day. Super catchy & emotional.
Is Survived By
This is one of the best albums ever. Get on it.
They're Only Chasing Safety
It saddens me to see how few kids nowaday know of Underoath.
This band shreds.
|36|| ||You Blew It!|
Keep Doing What You're Doing
Contrary to popular belief I think this is YBI!'s best release ever. It makes all other music look like...bad music.
This is the only Yellowcard album i actually enjoy, because after this they started sounding like a christian rock band.
This is the weirdest punk album ever made but I listen to it quite often and you should too.
American Radass (This Is Important)
This band blew me away live and their lyrics and instrumentals are face-melting.
Every album Circa Survive puts out is great but this EP is the bomb.net.
