Welp, it’s time for another Music Theory and I guess it’s about time to get this band out of the way. They go way back to my high school years and I consider them to be one of my favorite bands of all-time. You’ve probably heard of them already…although I guess since they were popular in the 90s there’s a possibility you haven’t!

Latest Album: Days Go By
Genre: Pop Punk/Alternative Rock
Favorite Track: Special Delivery (see above)
Other Recommended Tracks: Bad Habit, The Kids Aren’t Alright, Americana, Lightning Rod, Spare Me The Details, Nothingtown, Let’s Hear It For Rock Bottom
Why I Enjoy Them: They were part of my formative teenage years in terms of music. They were the first band I went to see live in concert, I listened to all their albums non-stop in high school and college. While my music tastes have changed, evolved, and expanded over the years I’ve continued to enjoy their music as they released new albums (although they haven’t released a new album since 2012) even though the general opinion was their quality declined soon after Americana. They’ll always have a special place in my heart.
