Does anyone know of any alt, punk bands that do songs that have kinda like a Broadway musical vibe to them. I love when I find songs that kinda give off that vibe. The closest thing I could think of what I'm looking for would be Mae's "We're So Far Away" that is such a great song, and it has the alt punk vocals but it also sounds like it could be on Broadway! If you've never heard it check it out, its great! Do you know of any other songs like this?

Well, I mean, I wouldn't call them "punk," but Fun. (and even some stuff from The Format) has some songs that seem like they could be used in a musical to me. The prechoruses in "Be Calm" for example. But, I've never really heard a band the way you described so I really don't have any good help for ya!

Came in to say this.

Also, not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for, but P!ATD's A Fever You Can't Sweat Out comes to mind. As does The Venetia Fair's The Pits EP.

I always thought Say Anything's 'Is a Real Boy' had some stuff that sounded musicaly. Like the gang vocals at the end of Belt. I can just see that being performed as a back and forth on stage

Bad Religion has that aspect with their vocal harmonies a lot of the time.

Ludo - Broken Bride EP is a rock opera that's pretty amazing.

The Black Parade? No? Okay.

The Used are pretty theatric as well.

Pretty much any cabaret punk.
