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?
