For me it's The '59 Sound, From the Bottom, Civil War, ...That's It Bye and Hindsight 20/20, Choke On A Cheesburger, and probably more that I'm leaving out.

I'm really looking forward to Power Move by The Screaming Females, next month!
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

My top five for the year were (drumroll please):

1. The '59 Sound- Gaslight Anthem
2. State of Grace- Street Dogs
3. Gorilla Marketing- the Steinways
4. Appeal to Reason- Rise Against (I know, I know. Shut up, I still like them.)
5. Float- Flogging Molly

Feel free to judge.
If only summer rain would fall, on the houses and the boulevards
And the sidewalk bagatelles, it's like a dream
With the roar of cars and the lulling of the cafe bars,
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine...

Punk is still alive? I thought that **** died out in the 80's
Quote by BrianApocalypse
Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

Oi!

Chinese democracy is actually a really good record, while Death Magnetic f*cking sucks.

Genghis Tron - Board Up The House.
Which isn't punk, so


Cro-Mags- Age of Quarrel


Which is from 1986.
My style is impetuous.
My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.
I want your heart.
I want to eat your children.
