Wouldn’t it be nice if America’s current premier radio-ready pop-punk acts were as good as Germany’s? The Donots are probably one of the world’s most underrated pop acts. With over a half-dozen full-lengths and almost ten single releases, the Donots are quite active in the European scene. However, their fanbase in North America is next to non-existent. Though they’ve had various instruments of exposure in the U.S., including a solid showing on Fat’s popular “Rock Against Bush” compilation series, tracks featured in various video games (including popular franchises such as Need for Speed and Burnout), and even a song created in cooperation with American punk heavyweights Anti-Flag, the Donots have never broken through in the U.S., or even made a dent in the market. Such is a shame, because the Donots are one of the world’s greatest pop-punk acts.
