Some of my favorite bands!

Today I thought I would do something a little different.  I love music and wanted to share some (not all) of my favorite bands.   I’m going to include a video from each one (my own concert footage if I have it).


State Champs  I’ve seen them live multiple times and they are one of my favorite live bands.  They will be at Warped Tour again this year.


With Confidence  I’ve only seen them once, but I’m hoping to catch them on Warped Tour this year.


Issues   I’ve seen Issues live twice so far and will hopefully see them again at Warped Tour.


Broadside  I haven’t been able to see them live yet, but hoping that changes this year.


Fall Out Boy   Mostly old FOB.  I’ve seen them live a lot, but not since around 2008.  I had the biggest crust on Pete Wentz back then.   Fall Out Boy got me really into music again after a few years of not finding anything that I loved.


Neck Deep   I think I’ve seen them twice so far.


New Found Glory  I think I’ve seen them 3 times, but I’m not positive.  I love their older stuff more, but everything they do is great.


Alkaline Trio   Somehow I’ve only seen them once, but I love this band and they were really good live.


The Wonder Years  I’ve seen them a few times, but I can’t remember how many.  Maybe 4?   They’re super fun live.


The Dollyrots  I’ve only seen them live once, but they’re so fun.


This Wild Life  I got to see them live last year and really loved them.


Dashboard Confessional  I finally got to see them live last year.  It was so worth the wait.




I think I’ll stop with 12 today.  I could have easily shared another dozen (or two), but I don’t want to make this too long.  I mostly listen to pop punk and punk, but like most music except country, classical, and jazz.  They’re just not my thing.  But I listen to a lot of alternative/indie, classic rock, r&b, rap, etc, too.



What are some of your favorite bands?

I'm Kristi. I'm a wife, mom, and grandma. I have been breeding leopard geckos for ten years. I love to read and have been trying to review more books (the reason for this blog besides wanting to talk about books with everyone). I also love music and going to concerts, mostly punk and pop punk.

  1. I’m a huge fan of FOB! And New Found Glory and Neck Deep–love their sound and am going to check them out. I also love Panic! at the Disco as well as Christian rock of Toby Mac and MercyMe. Thanks for the fun post today and intro to bands I’ve never heard before.

  2. I love this post idea so much. I think I might do it too. It’s just so hard to pick favorites. I feel we have similar taste in music. I just haven’t heard of some of these bands. Old Fall Out Boy is hands down my favorite too. I’ve seen them a couple times in concert. I also use to have a big crush on Pete Wentz. I like Blink-182 a lot too. Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio is currently a part of their band. Taking Back Sunday is another band I really love. I try to see them whenever I can. I’m deff going to have to check out these bands you mentioned that I haven’t heard of. I’m pretty sure my friend just mentioned With Confidence to me so will be checking them out asap.

      1. It’s funny because my friend just recommended With Confidence to me as well. I really am enjoying them. They are right up my alley. I need to listen to State Champs. I’ve heard of them but never listened to their music.

      2. If you like With Confidence, you’ll like State Champs, too. They are both favorites (like my top two favorites). State Champs is so good live. I’ve seen them a few times already and will see them again this summer.
