I recently(6-7 months ago) got into this amazing band called Alkaline Trio. They are decently well known but in now way mainstream in the slightest. I'm just spreading he word by saying that these guys are songwriting geniuses. I recommend that everyone buy their albums because you won't be disappointed. From their first 5 albums I can only think of 2 songs that I don't like. They are ridicuously consistent in releasing good material and are the true face of pop punk.
By Pop punk, I am not making any similarities to crappy bands like Boys Like Girls or Good Charlotte. In my mind, AT3 is how pop punk should be.
Don't mind that randomness.
