    Default Modern Day Punk

    Okay, so there's a lot of people who think that punk lost it's edge back in the 1980s with the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Ramones, Dead Kennedys, etc. This thread will show that there is still some awesome punk being made today and that the 1990s and on is a great era for punk rock. So, in this thread I and whoever else wants to, will post songs of punk bands created in the 1990s - 2000s that are still active today, making awesome music.

    Rise Against (at least Revolutions Per Minute, which is a stupidly awesome album), earlier Green Day, Social Distortion (they came out with an album recently I believe, and have been going at it since the 80s).

    Those are the few that spring to mind right away.

    I'm glad someone mentioned Green Day. But really? Can we not love something just because it's new? I personally love 21st Century Breakdown. Still amazing pop/punk music, and the formula hasn't changed much at all for Green Day. :P

    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of Green Day, but more power to you if you are. There is more than just pop punk though, which I think people overlook. I think people are looking into the big names like Blink 182, Sum 41, and Green Day more than let's say Social Distortion, Dropkick Murphys, or Tiger Army which mix other genres with punk rock.

    I would say that the more recent Green Day stuff doesn't have the same appeal to me. I guess my tastes changed. But yeah there is pretty good stuff being made in the more recent years... I mean, a genre of music rarely dies, just kinda rides the ebb and flow of popularity. Ha! that was kinda poetic was it not. I'm impressed with myself

    I'll have to look into punk past the pop veil, I guess then : ) I mean...I listen to Strung Out, and that's still sort of poppish...hmm. Hah, and that's a great point Powertrip. You've gotta search for the "great stuff" though. You're not gonna find it on pop radio, that's for sure. (IMO)

    And here's some Green Day:

    Yeah, I'm definitely one of those people who thinks punk lost its edge after the 80s
    There's not holding back the book attack! The time to read is the ONLY thing I lack.
