I'm in the minority about The Wonder Years. I tried listening to them on record and have seen them twice (one was the Suburbia in its entirety show) and they just don't do anything for me. It sounds like basic pop punk riffs with the same drumming for every song. Is there a song by them that would make me change my mind?
"And Now I'm Nothing" from Suburbia, especially since you mention drumming. The 6/8 beat with the snare on 2, 4, and 6 is anything but typical pop punk drumming.

Right? Or the Latin influenced shuffle parts or in me vs highway when the guitars are in 5/4 and Kennedy is playing in 4/4 over them.

Cool to see some technical talk in the thread. Posts like this need to happen more often.

And also, "And Now I'm Nothing" is my favorite song from TWY. Great guitar riffs (and of course drumming).

100% okay with this. Not that they need my approval or anything.

Get in, but a third major album isn't always a great thing (Set Your Goals, Four Year Strong, Man Overboard etc).

But to be fair, The Wonder Years are a much stronger and talented band than those three. Not saying they aren't good, but ya know.
