Pop-Punk Is Sooooo ’05

It’s probably a pretty accurate assessment to say that every generation thinks the music they grew up with is the best music. I’m sure it’s part of some type of formative years/nostalgic psychological phenomenon thing, and realizing it sure does make you feel old.

I made this playlist a few weeks ago, and it’s just so weird how much these old songs make me feel transported back to ~2010.

This isn’t the whole playlist, but a very representative sample.

I also looked up some modern pop-punk bands and was surprised to find that there are still bands making this exact kind of music. Even the big bands from back then (hey, Fall Out Boy) don’t make pop-punk like this anymore.
