Love me some 90's/early 2000's punk (/pop), ska, etc. Even though I never went, I was totally into the whole Warped Tour scene until I was about 15. I fondly remember the days of middle school, discussing whether Good Charlotte had "sold out" or what happed to Davey Havok's voice. Most of that stuff hurts my ears nowadays, but I still listen to Blink, (90's) Weezer, Andrew W.K. Reel Big Fish, Motion City Soundtrack, Against Me! every once and awhile. I've also got a couple of songs that my friends and I always put on at parties "Teenage Dirtbag" by Wheatus, "She Hates Me" by Puddle of Mudd, and "Fat Lip" by Sum 41.
Maybe it's my british heritage, but I've also got a real soft spot for a lot of the "NME bands." Most of it I recognize as utter shit, but it's also really catchy and fun. The Strokes and the Libertines are two of my favourite bands. I don't really mind the Killers. Though I really don't like most of their songs, I can pretty much singalong, word for word, to "Read My Mind" or "All These Things I Have Done." I loved Arctic Monkey's last Album, after kinda liking their second and hating their first.
NME is 80% responsible for the fact that I will never take that country seriously.
