THE VERY BEST OF 2012 AS CHOSEN BY THE BRITTANY STRUMMER
I was initially sent this record to set up as a Punknews stream and ended up falling in love with it.
If you've made it this far down my list then this pop-punk choice should come as no surprise. Dan Vapid is a pop-punk god and this record is pop-punk gold.
I never liked Ceremony until I listened to this record. I'm told their previous one is awesome too. At first spin I didn't give this release too much thought but then I saw them live and was blown away so I decided to give it another shot. I'm glad I did.
A perfect Bottlerocket record. This band can do no wrong.
This was an unexpected but pleasant surprise. When Jeff described this release as being unfinished songs that were meant for Bomb the Music Industry! stuff I was expecting some poorly recorded demos but he polished all of these songs up nicely and the result rules.
My boyfriend introduced me to this band and within a few days I was singing along to every word. This album has a perfect opener with the group declaring they're the fucking greatest band in the world and then there's random Kenny Rogers references sprinkled all over the record which makes the Jackass fan in me happy. This record is so hilariously great and every time I hear "Holy Fuck, I'm a Dad" I think of Rich and Adam (soon Joe!).
