Snark, sleaze, and skate punk. Revisited!

What comes around, goes around. In case you haven't noticed, there is a bit of a late 90s early 00s revival going on in the world of music. Groups like Blink-182, Simple Plan, and Sum 41 are all releasing or have just released new albums.

It seems like only yesterday that The Offspring, NOFX, and Good Charlotte were riding high on the wave of Pop Punk fever that had gripped the nation. Inspired by groups like Social Distortion and the Descendants, the late 90s and early 00s saw pop melodies married to the faster, driven tempo and irrereverent lyrics of classic punk. America ate it up.
