It’s easy to dismiss a lot of the skate-punk generation for not showing much depth or profundity, and in most cases (NOFX, Vandals, blah blah blah) you’d be right. However, I think it’s about time that a case was made for some of the bands in the pop-punk world who have little to say about bodily functions, and more to say about the world we live in.

It’s also a jam.
And a teen anthem of mine.
