Panic! at the Disco - "Victorious" Single Review

We were less than thrilled with Panic! at the Disco's previous single, "Death of a Bachelor" earlier this month. But less than 30 days later and the band has returned with this new single. Impressive, full of spunk, and has Panic! written all over it. This is the right way to get people psyched for a new album. Click this (link) to buy the track on iTunes.

The Wonder Years - "No Closer to Heaven" Review

Hopeless Records has had a slew of pop punk hits so far this year with All Time Low, Neck Deep, and ROAM. They can add The Wonder Years to that list. Their 5th album was already shaping up to be one of their best yet, then they went and blew minds. Different from their previous releases, but in the best ways possible. TWY take a new tack at pop punk in this album, and score big! Click this (link) to buy the album on iTunes.

Top 10 Fangirl Frontmen / Bands

Some bands spend months writing albums and touring. Then there are bands that can so much as sneeze and sell out stadiums. Today, we're counting down our picks for bands whose careers have largely been built upon fangirls. The bands featured here are not necessarily bad, we'll let you be the judge of that. And fangirls aren't necessarily bad either, but they can be very influential on a band's success, without knowing the first thing about quality or substance. Click this (link) for more top 10 lists. 

If you think we missed a band, or want to get butthurt then feel free to leave a comment! Or contact us at, whatever works. Again, bring on the butthurt!

Quick Picks: A Little Less Weird, A Little More Fall Out Boy (Weirdest Fall Out Boy Songs)

Some bands are known for their creative lyrics, or inventive sounds. Others are known for their odd song titles. Fall Out Boy are the reigning kings of weird title choices. What would a FOB album be without a ridiculously long song title? Hopefully if you're a fan, you understood this posts title reference (If you didn't then it sucks to be you) Click this (link) to see our honorable mentions (there are quite a few). 

Now the lyrical content isn't, per say, weird, but a casual observer would do a double take at some of these song titles. We're not saying these songs are bad in any way, just that their writers made some weird decisions when deciding what to call them. If you think we missed a song, comment. Keep in mind we had to get picky, since we only have so much space.

Bring Me The Horizon - "That's the Spirit" Review

One of the most anticipated albums of 2015, Bring Me The Horizon released their 5th album on September 11. Fans everywhere were anticipating this album, unsure of what to expect. With one promotional single, and then lead single "Throne" kicking off the band's next era, we were introduced to a new side of BMTH. A more radio friendly version yes, but also a band who knew what they wanted to do (or thought they did) and created their ideal album. You can click these links to read our reviews of singles, "Happy Song", "Throne", and "True Friends".

New Politics - "Vikings" Review

Dance pop and electronic meets punk, that's New Politics in a nutshell. Previous albums from this Danish band were, well, incomplete. But their 3rd album is, for the most part, a cohesive collection of fun songs. Signing to DCD2 Records, Pete Wentz's label, has done the band a world of good. Wentz infuses some emo into the band's sound, and the band themselves have come into their own as song writers. 

Panic at the Disco "Death of a Bachelor" - Single Review

Off their upcoming 5th album, Panic! are back with another song. Branching out even further, this band loves to keep fans guessing. And they do a damn good job of it with this new single, "Death of a Bachelor". Different from anything else they've released, it marks another shift in the band's overall sound and style. Is it a step forward or a step back, that's for you to say. Click this (link) to buy their first single "Hallelujah" on iTunes.

Get Scared - "Buried Alive" Single Review

The male equivalent to fellow goth rockers New Years Day have just released a new single! And announced that their new album, "Demons" will be released Oct. 30th, the day before Halloween! Ironically enough, Get Scared will be touring with NYD, Eyes Set to Kill and New Volume this fall. To get tickets click this (link), and to preorder the album click this (link). Halloween just got a whole lot better!

Knuckle Puck - "Copacetic" Review

Knuckle Puck's debut record "Copacetic" is the epitome of pop punk. If you didn't already know what genre the band is, the album title should have given you an inclining. An up-in-coming band that has its origins in Chicago circa 2010, these fellows have kicked things off with a strong debut. After completing a run on Warped Tour 2015, the band have found themselves with a growing fanbase, and a surprisingly successful debut. Click this (link) to buy their album on iTunes.

Top 10 Modern Post Hardcore Albums

Screamo, emo, whatever you call it you love it. Traditionally a fusion of hardcore punk and post punk, today it has become more of a blend of metalcore, hardcore punk, pop punk, and various alt. rock off shoots. When we say modern, we're talking 2009 to the present. So if you don't see an album, be sure to check out our "Top 10 Classic Post Hardcore" albums post. 

Go to our Top 10 page to see our honorable mentions. We understand that everyone has their own opinions, and definitions of post hardcore may vary.
