Don't get me wrong I love Moneen! Not enough for them to make my personal top 10, but I still love them. And they made the cut on the other list I just did for AUX!
Great posts, but no Closet Monster or Marilyn's Vitamins? The latter spawned numerous Underground Operations bands, such as Hostage Life and Bombs Over Providence.
Never really got into most of those personally, though I do like Hostage Life. Saw them play with Set Your Goals, Daggermouth and No Trigger in 2007. That was an unreal show.
man, sum 41 has a place in my heart too. "Rhythms" pumped me up before school haha, must have played that song a billion times or more. I remember thinking how much I related to "it's a rhythm that you go through"...like how HS is just an obstacle I go through and who cares if I'm wierd, just be you... or something silly like that. I remember someone asked me what I listened to and I could only list off "sum 41"...lol.They were the only band I listened to for a while. Literally, no other bands or artists. I remember my mom thinking that "chuck" was a bad album because one of the songs had "hell" in the title. I thought "pieces" was the greatest, most emotional song on earth. This band brings back so many memories...sum 41 was the first band I got into in depth and even though they aren't what they used to be, I'll always love them.
For another canadian pop punk band, and I know people hate them, but I enjoyed the first Simple Plan album back in the day.
Cool I'm not the only one who loves that Sum 41 song in particular! But I've gotta admit, I am one of those people that hates Simple Plan, haha. I'm actually a bit surprised because their debut came out when I was in grade 6, but even then I thought they were too cheesy and I still think Pierre has one of the whiniest, most annoying voices I've ever heard. I guess I have to give them props for still headlining arenas, but not my thing at all.
I looooooooove Moneen. Is Carpenter still doing their thing? Because I think I recently grabbed a few albums by them.
will check out the other stuff, for sure. ¡Gracias señora Remus!
I don't know what's up with Carpenter nowadays. Last record that came out was Sea to Sky
in 2010. Hope you find some stuff you like!
Logged in for the first time in like two years to comment on this. Thanks so much for posting this list. I have a pop punk show on campus radio and am always looking for new Canadian bands to play. I totally forgot about some of these bands and am definitely going to check out some of the other artists on your smallman records list that I have never heard of before. So much nostalgia.
Awesome to hear! Glad you enjoyed it.
