    Liner Notes - A Look Back on 10 Classic Pop Punk Bands' "Mature" Albums from Brooklyn Vegan

    Liner Notes - A Look Back on 10 Classic Pop Punk Bands' "Mature" Albums from Brooklyn Vegan

    Bill and Brian are back once again to talk about a fun article, this time from Brooklyn Vegan, in which Andrew Sacher explores the phenomenon of classic pop punk bands ditching their youthful sound for a more "mature" expression of art. We have fun talking about some of the albums we've enjoyed like Green Day's Warning or Hellogoodbye's Would It Kill You and others we didn't know too much about prior to this like Panic at the Disco's Pretty Odd and The Early November's The Mother, the Mechanic, and the Path. Check out the original article . Also, note that there's a little noise coming through our digital connection. We tried to clean it up the best we could and hope it doesn't detract from the show!

Love the podcast!

Touches on so many artists and albums I am into. By the way.....its great that there is a Replacements reference in almost every episode!!!

Jazzbo ,

White guys with guitars!

It’s amazing how many great albums these guys haven’t heard. There’s a lot more music than just rock you know.

Grow Up!

For the love of music, please stop saying “like” every other word! You’re not in high school anymore!! So distracting from an otherwise enjoyable show.
