Did someone say… new Mayday Parade music?! Yep, you read right. Mayday Parade are dropping a new album on June 15th called “Sunnyland,” which follows up their 2015 release “Black Lines.” To be honest, I haven’t really been vibing with MP’s last two albums, but I’m actually quite optimistic about this one. Not to mention,… Continue reading Jen’s Top Ten’s: My Favorite Songs by Mayday Parade

Jen’s Top Ten’s: Favorite Songs of 2017

Boy, am I glad to be saying goodbye to 2017. What a shit year -- Tom Petty died, David Cassidy died, Chester Bennington died. There were hurricanes and fires and I'm pretty sure that Puerto Rico STILL doesn't have power. Also, Vine died this year. RIP VINE. The world as we knew it literally came… Continue reading Jen’s Top Ten’s: Favorite Songs of 2017

RIP Warped Tour: The End of an Era

Sigh... it feels like just yesterday since I was attending my first Vans Warped Tour. And next year will be my last. It was announced shortly before Thanksgiving that Warped Tour will be making its last cross-country tour next summer. In 2019, there will be some sort of 25th anniversary thing, and after that, Warped… Continue reading RIP Warped Tour: The End of an Era

Jen’s Top Ten’s: My Favorite Songs by The Story So Far

  You know, it's really hard for me to believe that there was ever a time in the pop punk world when The Story So Far didn't exist yet. They formed in 2007, and have since released three studio albums and two EP's. As of April 2017, they are in the studio working on their… Continue reading Jen’s Top Ten’s: My Favorite Songs by The Story So Far

Jen’s Top Ten’s: My Favorite Vocalists of All Time

When I first listen to a band, the vocalist is who I really pay attention to (as I’m sure it is for most other people too). They can make or break their entire sound. There have been plenty of artists where I didn’t like them simply because I just didn’t care for their voice. In today’s… Continue reading Jen’s Top Ten’s: My Favorite Vocalists of All Time

Jen’s Top Ten’s: My Favorite Songs by Real Friends

There are times in life when you come across a band that really impacts your life in a way that you never could have imagined. A time when lyrics leave you weak in the knees and numb to the bone. A time when the fast paced melodies of that bands’ song leaves you with adrenaline… Continue reading Jen’s Top Ten’s: My Favorite Songs by Real Friends

Jen’s Top Tens: My Favorite Acoustic Songs of All Time

If you read any of my stuff, then you know that I love fast punk rock tempos, pop-influenced melodies, electric guitars, and “sick beats”. But sometimes, it’s nice to sit back and listen to something a little bit more mellow, with some songs being solely acoustic guitar. There’s something about the acoustic guitar that has… Continue reading Jen’s Top Tens: My Favorite Acoustic Songs of All Time
