Ryan Curtiss: Best of Punk 2022

There were some solid punk albums this year, and I couldn’t get enough of it. Here are my favorites from the past year, and if you haven’t listened to them yet, what are you waiting for? Go give them a listen!

1.) The Wonder Years – The Hum Goes On Forever

The Wonder Years came in at number one with their album The Hum Goes on Forever. Every track on this album is the culmination of almost 20 years of work from the Philly-based pop punk band.  They are known for Crafting songs that make concept albums out of their lives, and writing relatable lyrics is their specialty. This is the best they’ve ever sounded, and if you haven’t listened to it yet, what are you waiting for?

2.) Anxious – Little Green House

Little Green House took me by surprise, and I fell in love with the album immediately. Anxious rip, and if you haven’t listened to this album that blends pop punk and hardcore together while staining your ears with honest lyricism and instrumentals that will make you throw yourself in a pit at a live show, then you’re messing up. Go check it out now.

3.) Hot Water Music – Feel the Void

Hot Water Music never disappoint. Feel the Void came in hot, and it’s still burning. Every track rips, but when does Hot Water Music ever falter in making a new album? Their unique sound that has become a staple in the punk scene never gets old, and this may be one of their best albums. Give it a listen.

4.) 84 Tigers – Time in the Lighthouse

Formed by members of Small Brown Bike and The Swellers, 84 Tigers rips on Time in the Lighthouse. The tracks are heavy, catchy, and a perfect introduction from the band. I was waiting for this album to come out all year, and when it dropped, it did not disappoint. I can’t wait to see what else they have in store. Check out the album if you haven’t!

5.)No Trigger – Dr. Album

One of my favorite hardcore bands from Massachusetts came out of left field with the acid-trip inspired Dr. Album. More punk than hardcore, every track seems to be a tongue in cheek viewpoint of the band where they deliver songs about social issues and their own lives. It’s a super fun album, and one worthy of your listening.
