I discovered punk in junior high. Punk and skateboarding always went together for me. I used to sit around and watched skate and snowboarding videos set to a punk soundtrack and then go out and skate to my own punk soundtrack.
10. MxPx – Life in General
While Teenage Politics turned me onto MxPx, it wasn’t until Life in General that I really got into the band. The songs are catchy on Life in General. Its pop punk at it’s finest. Mike’s has always been a fantastic songwriter and Life in General holds as some of his best work. Middle Name, Do Your Feet Hurt, Doing Time, Freaking Chick Magnet! The lyrics are smart and catchy, and it’s a great record.
