    Thrice - Beggars
    One of Thrice's softer albums which is I would say is no better than decent. Really I just can't tolerate Thrice because I don't think they're that good. The concept behind this album tried to be a more closer to the heart, slow-paced album but ultimately I found it to be pretty dull.

    blink-182 - Enema of the State
    From Dumpweed to Anthem there is no slowing down in blink-182's 3rd studio album. With the guidance of Jerry Finn, blink-182 hits a new level of popularity that they probably never imagined. The production in Enema of the State is much better than anything they had put out before, and they show that they have found their sound. Power chords the whole way though but with the drumming by Travis Barker and relatable lyrics for many by DeLonge this album became an anthem across the world. All the Small Things is regarded as the most popular single off the record and is about Delonge's ex-girlfriend. In order to make this song a hit they needed to throw in some Na Na Na Na Na's, so that people across the world could sing along. Enema of the State is as consistent as it gets, there are no curve balls thrown at you. Each song contains at least one memorable lyric that the listener anticipates for. Don't forget the catchy rhythms in, for example, What's My Age Again and Adam's Song. Though Adam's Song is a little depressing and not my favorite hit by them. Dysentery Gary is one of the most relatable songs out there. Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge going back and forth keeps the excitement moving. They keep it real.

    blink-182 - Take Off Your Pants and Jacket
    Take Off Your Pants and Jacket literally starts off where Enema of the State Finished. No seriously they begin with Anthem pt. 2. They carry on the same sound and the excellent transitions from song to song. The Rock Show and First Date are basically the same song but with different lyrics though I doubt people notice. Stay Together for the Kids shows some progression in that they can be serious artists if they wanted to. However, in the end it's just another album with catchy power chords and relatable lyrics once again. Some songs do not sound as inspired unlike the previous record. Shut Up and Please Take Me Home really grab me as a listener because I can relate. The 182 seconds of silence give or take is kinda pointless but oh well. In the end this album nearly matches the greatest of Enema of the Sate and we get some Na Na Na Na's as heard in Online Songs

    Blink 182 is a Sum 41 cover band right? I'm not sure , I never really listened to hardcore punk.

    I mean, dude has a good ear for music at least. He'll probably love Pink Flag. It was one of those watershed moments for me when I first hear it; driving back through Yosemite to Bishop on a summer night, it was incredible.

Creatures is one song that stood out to me and I could see it being background music to a future nightmare I may have. Just lots going on and it kept me interested throughout the whole listen. I believe his music is suppose to make the listener feel like they are in the rainforest. This album is filled with lots of life and very well produced.

    Wire - Pink Flag
    One of the great punk albums of all time. Though not big with the mass majority, Wire's work influenced many artists because they were able to expand the genre. Pink Flag is pretty much fast but steady the whole way through, so it's good workout music or put it one when you're in a rush. I just wanna mosh and have a good time when listening to this. Not the biggest fan of his vocals but love everything else

    Underground Resistance - Interstellar Fugitives
    After going through this album multiple times I still have no idea what the hell is going on. Pretty solid beats and nice techno feel to it. I pretty much can't tell whether I'm hallucinating sounds or it's part of the record. The music makes me feel pretty paranoid too. Good music to play lazer tag too because you're running after people but also running from people or hiding so this is good suspense music.

    The Modern Lovers - The Modern Lovers
    Roadrunner was a great start to their debut record and probably my favorite song by them. A strange but humorous song known as Pablo Picasso caught my attention as well. A lot of these songs are catchy because of the guitar rhythms and piano that served as a complement in some songs. The slow songs were a little painful to get through because he just can't hit some of those notes, though Hospital was alright. Anyways you can tell they were ahead of their era and would go on to be a big influence.

    Change "are" to "is". There are a bunch of associated artists like Mr. Doctor, X-Raided, Loki, Triple Six, Zagg the Virus, etc. Maybe you're referring to them?
