I was listening to Brandtson's Send Us a Signal last night, and it got me thinking about albums that are so good and yet most people probably don't own them or even know about them. Ummm ... and if that's not a good catalyst for a top 10 list, I don't know what is. So here are the top 10 albums that I think go unnoticed and you should check out. As always, there are obviously hundreds of others that could be included -- but these are the ones that I felt like sharing. Feel free to add any to the replies that you think people should check out. I linked all of them to their streaming versions on Rdio, so now you have no excuse to not check them out. Oh, and this isn't really in any...

Punk Goes Pop 5 is #16 on the Billboard Charts? People aren't boycotting the Falling in Reverse tour? I guess if Aerosmith and Cheap Trick are still selling out arenas, there still is room for rock stars. I try to make sense of all of it this week here. Go to a record store or buy an album off Amazon or iTunes today. Go to a show, whether it's a local favorite on a tour kick-off, or a touring band passing through this weekend. Save good music or else we'll get another Issues album. Yes, I said it. Deal with it.

This morning's edition of the Self-Promotion Spotlight features Michigan's Skyway Traffic. The band cites the Hopeless Records roster and Katy Perry as influences. Head to the replies for a lyric video of lead single "First Class Liar." For what it's worth, I'm not sure I've heard catchier songs in the last two or three weeks. Want to be featured in the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy. Just sign up for an AP.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.

This past weekend I attended Fun Fun Fun Fest and saw some nostalgic acts. Friday night I left the festival to attend Taking Back Sunday's Tell All Your Friends 10th Anniversary Tour. The album, like a few others, holds a special place in my lifetime, and that place in sappy crater I call a love life. You can read my thoughts on my personal attachment to the record here. I invite you all to share your own stories and albums or songs that go with them. I don't want to turn the front page into 'Personal Life' today, but I think we can make a pretty cool mixtape of stories to end the week nonetheless. Or you can just head to the replies and call me a dork, either way, I hope you enjoy it.

The weekend of triple fun is now over. After sets from Braid, The Promise Ring and Refused, among many many others, I'm still a bit overwhelmed by it all. Hit the replies to read user Dustin Harkins and I's final write-ups. You can head to our Facebook page to check out a full set of photos from the weekend from photographer Sara Strick. Also be sure to check out Purevolume's full gallery from the weekend as well. Fugazi? Jawbreaker? Unwound? Harkonen? Who knows what next year will bring, but I'll be patiently waiting for the Fall of 2013 regardless. Seriously, please Harkonen, please!

What a hell of a first day at this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest. You can check out a couple of photos from the day over on our Facebook page. Head to the replies to see not only my review, but Dustin Harkins review of the festival as well, who will be down here with me all weekend. Refused, Braid, David Cross and much much more today. I'd bring a bandana if you're hanging out towards the Black Stage today. More than enough dirt and dust is getting stirred up down there.

Good morning from Austin, TX. Today starts the first day of the seventh annual Fun Fun Fun Fest. Last night I saw great sets from Superchunk, Dwarves and The Impalers. Be sure to follow me through the weekend on our new Instagram feed: @absolutepunk. I'll be making plenty of snide remarks which may not reflect the views of this site through my Twitter here. If you're down here for the weekend, be sure to say "Hi!" and come pit with me during Converge tonight. I'm just kidding, I don't want to be killed the first day, but I'll see you there, I'll be the old guy in the back.

Have you ever wanted to know what Jason Tate's least favorite genre of music is? How about which unsigned bands Drew Beringer would sign? What would Eda eat for a last meal? You can find these answers and much more in Part II of our Staff Interview, which you can read here. Did you miss the first part? You can read Part I here. Thanks for all your questions, and we'll do it again this time next year.

We're excited to be streaming the re-release of To The Wind's debut EP, No More Than This, out on Pure Noise Records, November 6th. No strangers to those who live in the Northwest, the band packs a powerful punch that will please fans of The Ghost Inside, It Prevails, and It Dies Today. Even if you consider yourself a casual fan of agressive music, this EP is a must listen. Head on down to the band's AP.net profile to check it out. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the record here.
