    But there’s another major factor bringing pop-punk back, and it’s causing a lot of change in the music industry. TikTok has been revitalizing hits from the 2000s and 2010s – many of them scene staples like 3OH!3’s “DONTTRUSTME”, Paramore’s “All I Wanted”, and All Time Low’s “Dear Maria, Count Me In”. It’s also bolstered newer songs, like “I Miss Having Sex but at Least I Don’t Want to Die Anymore” by pop-punk-adjacent band Waterparks, who didn’t even release the track as a single (and have subsequently signed to hip-hop label 300 Entertainment). YUNGBLUD, whose work combines elements of pop and punk with other genres, frequently collaborates with Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker, and his song “parents” went viral on TikTok earlier this year.

    Next level: When TikTok can get all those pop-punk bands that should have been huge back in the day a viral hit. Come on, let’s see some Lucky Boys Confusion dance move videos.

    So, you're saying there's a chance that Gob's "I Hear You Calling" might finally get the love it deserves?

    I hate tik tok. It's literally what my sister would do in the 90's but you're able to film it now. Do a dance to the spice girls and now it's recorded. ie. PEN15

    I will however give this a pass, pop punk's not dead

    Tik Tok getting some shine for LBC would be so bizarre and awesome. I can see some dances being done to Bossman though.

    Although I don't TikTok, it helped blow up All Time Low again and those guys deserve it.

    "For The Moment" is still their best song.

    I think we should let 3OH!3 remain in the late 00's. That band (loose term there) would likely be considered all sorts of problematic now.

    Wish Days Away had music that could be a tiktok dance and they come back. Love good old war but days away has my heart

    I discover all kinds of new bands thanks to a few folks I follow on TT. Between that and the forums, I am not in danger of only listening to New Found Glory and complaining the new stuff sucks.

    (puts on “Catalyst” again)

    Oof, I just went through 3oh3s singles to remember who they were. God they’re terrible. How was that so popular?

    Tiktok is a good source for finding new music and revitalizing my love for some old music I've neglected

    Motel. Money. Murder. Madness.

    so, it’s just a matter of days before one of these kids finds Midtown and a trillion people make videos to Just Rock and Roll, right?

    My limited tiktok knowledge kinda makes me think they have a pretty ~tiktokable~ catalog.

    I'm gonna do this before the youngs get any idea to do the same thing. If I get big, I'll pay you in crypto.
