Looking for Pop-punk recommendations

Discussion in 'Music Forum' started by Violent Knight, Dec 14, 2017.

    I've been following this site for the better part of two decades and have always come here first looking for reviews, releases and hoping to find new artists.

    I have seen my volume of new music decrease the past several years and was hoping to get some recommendations to my tastes. Here are the big names I enjoy:

    Alkaline Trio
    For the Win
    Four Year Strong
    Our Last Night
    Relient K
    Starting Line
    State Champs
    Story So Far

    Thank you anyone for a response. Happy Holidays!

    The Movielife put out a record this year that fits right in with the best pop punk out there.

    PUP is a really great band you might be into. I can't recommend them enough.

    I got some great recommendations last year, so I thought I'd check again.

    So far this year I've added Punchline, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, State Champs, Miss Fortune, Alkaline Trio and Story So Far.

    Anything that I've missed this year or would be worth checking out?

    Geez you provided such a short list for such a full genre. I’ll list a ton of names in mostly alphabetical order:

    Awaken I Am (not exactly pop punk but catchy maybe emocore?)
    Boston Manor
    Can’t Swim
    Carousel Kings (my pop punk AOTY last year)
    Chin Up, Kid
    Dead Girls Academy
    Direct Hit!
    Dream State (Female fronted emocore)
    The Graduate (older but great)
    Hands Like Houses
    Hidden in Plain View (old but good)
    Knuckle Puck
    The Material
    Neck Deep** (similar to state champs & can’t swim imo)
    NERVUS** (since you had Bayside high on your list, this band reminds me of them)
    Oh, Weatherly
    Over It (older but good)
    Picturesque (more of the saosin and circa type sound than just pop punk)
    ROAM (just pure pop punk)
    Seaway (similar to neck deep, can’t swim)
    Senses Fail (more emocore but c’mon now)
    Set It Off (panic at the disco / FOB sounding)
    Sleep on It
    Spanish Love Songs
    Stand Atlantic (Female Fronted Pop Punk)
    Story Untold
    Ten Cents Short
    Thousand Below - not really pop punk but not a crazy stretch to think you might like it
    Time, The Valuator (same synopsis as just above)
    Tiny Moving Parts
    Tonight Alive
    Too Close to Touch (more emocore but good)
    Trophy Eyes
    We Were Sharks
    With Confidence
    The Wonder Years
    Yours Truly
  16. Violent Knight


    That’s literally all I’ve purchased this year but thought it gave a solid representation of what I enjoy.

    Thanks so much for the lists.
