Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong declared war on punk in a 2016 TV game. Oh be punk, o non lo be". From the big losers of the 70's (Buzzcocks, Undertones) to the 80's hard-core heroes (Misfits, Descendents) to the hitmakers of the 90's (Green Day, Blink-182) and beyond, punk bands have always shown great writing skills besides their anti-authoritarian position.
And the punk's emphasis on speed, conciseness and simplicity of the three chords naturally goes hand in hand with the basic values of the pop. Over the years, what we know today as punk has changed rapidly and evolved with time and fashion. Like New Wave and Collegiate rock, great acts like shka, rapp, emo and even boys and boys have been incorporated into the mixture, but one thing has remained constant: punk is for boys, or at least for those who still feel youthful.
She is in OC and One Tree Hill, the teen suap operas of contemporary skirt. The first traces of extraordinary groups like Blink-182, Simple Plan, Sum-41 and, yes, Green Day always spoke of a blocked development, a persistent desire never to grow. "The whole spectrum of human experience, all the desire and insecurity, are perfectly summarized in these formative years," wrote Amanda Petrusich of the New Yorker in 2016 about the power of youthful emotions thinking about the return of Blink-182.
"That'?s where pop-punk lives. His rawness lies not so much in the music as in the intoxicating novelty of these "feelings". To celebrate this long-lasting and popular movement, we count the fifty best pop-punk albums in history. From Buzzcocks to the 5 seconds of summer, here's the new punk canon.
AFI's fifth session came on the Billboard 200 and enabled the Bay Area to reach the mains. It' cool that things have changed in favor of women... because what I learned as a kid women have always had a better taste for music.
HEN Kerplunk is the purest distillation of the Green Days: three cheeky and listless thugs on the threshold of twenty years with too much energy and a serious disturbance of attention marked by small frustrations and passions. The album was the band's second attempt to make a long record, and the first with Tré Cool on drums (who also wrote and sang the Blissfully) frivolous song on sadomasochism, Dominated Love Slave, also known as Song Blissfully Song.
Released on Lookout Records worldwide, the album sums up what makes punk such a diverse genre by combining the harshness of classic punk with the expressive tenderness and collegiate style of the late 80s. They also recorded a Who My Generation classic covers as a bonustrack, suggesting that the new Green Day season would begin.
Lookout founder Larry Livermore said he had to harass Green Day for an entire record before Kerplunk was introduced to him. B.S. After disbanding after a catastrophic second record (Music for Pleasure 1977), the groundbreaking English punks reformed Damned in 1970 without the original guitarist and composer Brian James and produced one of the best (and unexpected) returns in the history of Rock.
Despite this obvious disadvantage, Sensible (who immediately switched from bass to guitar), singer Dave Vanian, drummer Rat Scabies and new bassist Algy Ward somehow managed to fill Machine Gun etiquette with bold, energetic tracks like Love Song, I Just Can't Be Happy Today, Plan 9 Channel 7 and Smash It Up (Part 2), mixing 60's punk, pop, psychedelic and 70's Glam in an unbridled, lifelike vision.
Machine Gun Etiquette is an indispensable listener for anyone who loves the melodic side of punk, and has inspired numerous bands, including Offspring, who recorded a 1995 smash it up for the batman forever soundtrack album. D.E. Since the success of their skateboard anthem Punk Rawk Show, MxPx has become a rare example of a Christian oriented punk group that can reach a secular audience.
"When I see all these small damn groups - all these really fraudulent bands - it's enough to get me in line," Weller said to The Face in May 1982. While this intensity could not be maintained (Weller disbanded the group in late 1982), the incredible six-year sequence of English singles - many of which were not included on their albums - is perfectly captured by Snap!
a 1983 collection that includes loud chords, observation-based lyrics, passionate choirs singing on everyone's lips, and a bomb-proof musical outfit that would prove enormously influential for popular punk groups like Green Day and Alkaline Trio. DCE: After the vaguely experimental iconic classic clarity, Jimmy tried to simplify things and the result was Bleed American, an album that helped present the group - and a new wave of punk music - to the strait.
Released after September 11 under the name Jimmy Eat World, the album is a collection of catchy hymns based on the most classic themes of the genre: alienation, death, growing up, love found and lost, and the simple comfort of singing with your favorite group. In 2001, there was no song more inevitable to the public than the second single on the album, The Middle, which was instrumental in taking the group everywhere from TRL episodes to Taylor Swift's headphones.
P.V. Punk developed further in 1979: a double release full of kka, reggae as well as rockabilly tracks was released by P.V. Punk while new influences could be heard in the genre, from Dob to kraut rock. But the song is also a cast of the form that pop-punk would take in the future. The text points the finger at a menephritic system ("They have a wall erreted/on both sides, they regulate and prepare us/and they make sure we don't get shit"), but with a hop captiousness buried under all the speed and rage and anticipating not only the Green Days but also their American ancestors Husker Dü and Replacements.
As Bono said to the Guardian in 2007: "For me it was mainly about anger, still in reality. J.D. Shortly before the Alkaline Trio released their third record From Here to Infirmary, guitarist and singer Matt Skiba of the Chicago Tribune said: "We really like to write songs about the darkest stuff, we consider it a celebration of the evil ideas that go through everyone's head.
Skiba, bassist singer Daniel Andriano and drummer Mike Felumlee (already in the local punk hero Smoking Popes) reached the finish line with From Here to Infirmary, especially in Armageddon, which brings uncertainty, heartache and, yes, the end of the world to light. Although the taste of darkness distinguished the three from any other Chicago suburban punk group, From Here to Infirmary also highlighted the strengths of the group's members as concise composers who knew how to attract the energy of life.
L.G. from Edinburgh - the cradle of the Bay City Rollers - the wild Rezillos merged the bizarre costumes of Surfrock, Garage, Glam, Rockabilly und New Water into a punkrock band that sounds as if the B-52 had listened more to cramps than to chic. Can' t Standt the Rezillos combines the sci-fi material of the fifties (Flying Saucer Attack, 2000 AD), the dizzying heights of the sixties beats ( Dave Clark Five and Gerry and the Pacemakers Cover) and the fun of the seventies post-punk (one of the most catchy tracks on the record is My Baby Does Good Sculptures).
"We all came from a similar place and met in a place that oriented us in the same direction, namely to do something that was very rocky and based on many artistic things that had to do with popular culture and were very rooted in underground rock," co-singer Fay Fife Fife said to Knoisey.
"Everyone has a bond of heart," he said to Spin Billie Joe Armstrong in 2005, "and I have to say that Operation Ivy changed my life. The Green Day front man is not the only one whose life has been changed by the group, which includes future Rancid members Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman: for better or for worse, the group was thanked for all the punk sounds they left behind.
Considering their merits, the entire discography of less than thirty songs (collected in a 1991 collection with the same name for Lookout Records) pulsates with energy, anger and youthful urgency, everywhere in a rough, airy tone that countless bands wanted to imitate without being able to reproduce. Summarizing the belligerent East Bay scene, the group produced Crimpshrine, Mr. T Experience and of course Green Day, who would later record a Knowledge honey tone album.
J.D. Think of All Time Low as the kings of the new pop-punk wave or the heroes of the latest TRL series. The album' s varied sounds - the unexpected California! apart from Let It Roll, the grieving acoustic ballad Remembering Sunday, the ecstatic liveliness of the fourfold platinum Dear Maria, Count Me In - is the perfect model for all the late 2000s punk music.
M. S. 2002 has seen pop-punk become part of the genre, and young bands in their quest for fame have by no means become sneaky. "Benji Madden Rock Sound told us about the ambition of the twins: "Joel and I always wanted to be part of a great group. "We never tried to be the cool Underground band that the elite heard: we wanted to give concerts all over the world, especially to those who wanted to listen to us.
And they did so by mixing the elite Guardians off their pedestals with songs like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and The Anthem, traditional heavy pop-punk warnings with light hip-hop breakbeats and stories of families in crisis, rice grubs and badly ended Valentine's Day parties. B.S. Bad Religion was founded in 1980 and was the grandmother of Southern California punk as early as 1993 when they unsettled the punk world by leaving Epitaph Records - the guitarist's label and co-founder of the Brett Gurewitz group - for Atlantic.
"I want you to know there's a record here that our enthusiastic fans will love because it's fucking punk." Than Fiction Stranger became the first and only Bad Religion record to win gold, while Incomplete, The Handshake, Than Fiction Stranger and a courageous reenactment of 21 Century (Digital Boy) by Against the Grain in 1990 remain some of the band's most popular songs in their extensive catalog.
The strange circumstance was that the group had commercial success despite the 90s grounge booms; their stimulating 1994 album Let's Go climbed on the Billboard 200 after being supported by their cousins Green Day (also from Berkeley) and Offspring, their epitaph label colleagues.
Rancid has specialized in punk folk music, from her authentic and turbulent life on the streets, from the Time Bomb cartoon to the Olympics, WA, a rocking and rolling energy to her failed relationship with Tobi Vail, the drummer of Bikini Kill. The spirit of Out Come the Wolves, a 2004 platinum record, resonates even more punk than Pop - although it remains a timeless milestone for young combiners of all generations.
HEAVY pop-punk doesn't theoretically think about growth, but with the American idiot the Green Days have created a brilliant political gap. Immediately responding to George W. Bush's presidency, the three produced an intense and urgent piece of work on the rocks, driven by rage and love, and told from the perspective of a discouraged suburban Jesus who sought to leave his city without perspective.
It was an ambitious and anti-pop-punk move for the group to create nine-minute stadium pieces full of characters, action and a frightening reflection of reality. B.S. The Canadian punk Sum-41 was born in the dense pop-punk market of the 2000s, saturated yet hungry. While she drowns in her youthful insecurity ("Motivation") and stereotypical pop-punk lust to leave her hometown ("Crazy Amanda Bunkface"), the record also contains emo-pop hooks years before they became the norm ("Rhythms" and "Handle This").
And like hardly any other pop-punk group, Sum-41 have experimented with rapports, for example in the teen hymn "Fat Lip", an exciting cry against conformism and social pressure. "The white skirt bands got really boring at some point, their hearts broken and all that shit.
M. S. New Found Glory's second LP of the same name is exactly what you would expect from a bunch of childishly minded punks with an altar dedicated to Britney Spears in the van. As a form of exporting the South Florida hard-core scene, the group was inspired by the nearby punk discounter and even the Earth Crisis metal-core group to prepare flammable hymns such as the smashing opening "Better Off Dead" or broken pieces of candy rock such as the solitaire ballad "Dressed To Kill".
The hit single "Hit or Miss" was the band's lucky charm: According to legend, Drive-Thru Records offered the group a contract to Midtown, NFG touring colleagues played the track for co-owner Stephanie Reines in a madhouse. There was Blink and West Coast punk was strong, but with a different style.
I NFG ] and Save the Day mixed more emotional lyrics with things influenced by punk and hardcore. Punk? HEAVY: While Green Days were the big exponents of the punk booms of the 90s, Offspring were determined to give the genre another major boost. In 1994 the third LP of the Orange Count Band, Smash, entered the top 5 of Billboard and became the best-selling independent album so far.
They put up very successful singles - the strange "Come Out and Play" about force, the sardonic anthem for losers "Self-Esteem" - without softening the characteristic angular edge. Obviously the bands popular appeal had its price: the purists of punk were outraged when they became famous and signed for Columbia after the release of Smash.
"because you think you're being ostracized. Then your punk group will be famous and you will be outlawed again. B.S. House of greats like Green Day and Rancid, the Bay Area was the epicenter of early and mid 90's Underground Punk, but no volume conjured up the spirit of that time and place better than the Jawbreaker.
Their third record, 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, captures the feeling of rebellion that unites several punk factions across the Jawbreaker's adopted hometown. Although trained in New York, the New York based New York based duo made the ambitious move to California in 1987, where they were greeted as passionately as any other Oakland born group.
NOFX's fifth LP shows the best of the mixture of coarse humour and writing skills that have made them the pillars of punk for more than three decades. "For me it was our best album," said guitarist El Hefe 2014 on Associated Press. I remember thinking: Wow, it's great, but okay, it's punk music, and how much money can you really make in the punk scene?
Driven by the irritating mockery of front man Fat Mike and the exuberant guitar of Hefe, the album juggles with punk hard beating, frivolous ska and perfectly crafted rocks that perform on the street and fight the Nazis. The aggressive melodism of punk in Drublic in tracks like "Linoleum" and "Dig" gives the record a timeless quality, while its anti-PC position is not quite so much.
But if you reduce it to a very embarrassing pop-punk core, this dirty poster - an inspiration for hordes of bands, from Blink-182 to Lagwagon - is a classic. "More people like the group now, but we're still misunderstood, especially by politicized punks," the New Jersey-born singer told the 1983 Flesh and Bloodanzine.
"Some people turn to music as if they were saying, "What can punkrock do to strengthen my political ideas?" and we are more like "okay, let's have fun instead". If that was the band's goal, Danzig and his partners didn't quite achieve it in Walk Among Us, an album that mixed aggressive three-bar riffs, bubblegum hop hooks (complete with whoa-oh chorus) and lyrics full of B-movie terror images and red-stomaque violence.
"Zombies of Astro" ("And your face falls into a pile of flesh / then your heart, the heart pulsates / as long as it pulsates death"), "Hatebreeders" ("Kill a congenital one in each of your cell / it's in your blood and you can't avoid it") - a timeless teenager's lust. At least ten years were missing at the height of punk when Misfits split up in 1983, but the band's influence is evident: no respectable bands in the genre have one or three covers of Walk- Among Us in their repertoire.
