This is a great mix of old, new, commercial, indie and who the hell are they? Probably the newest band on this mix are The Wonder Years, a Pennsylvania pop punk band that is so pop punk, sometimes you can't even fathom it. Some bands where I was like, "who the hell are they?" include Japandroids (actually, not that bad, pretty thrashy though for pop punk) - they're a duo from Canada who are still an active band but haven't released anything since 2012. Also Lifetime - New Jersey pop punk at it's finest who actually disbanded in the late 90's - so they were definitely before my interest in pop punk - they broke up in 1997, I was still listening to Hanson, The Spice Girls and the occasional Beatles song here and there. They sound kind of like Bad Religion and Minor Threat or Millencolin mixed together. On a side note, Apple Music always has the weirdest playlists - it's become a joke between my boyfriend and I to share what comes up on our "recommended playlists". This one comes up a lot on mine, if you must know. This might not be too random, but trust me there are others where you're like, "what the actual fuck?" Part of the reason why I started this blog series in the first place.
