The Wonder Years


The Wonder Years are a six-piece pop punk band from Lansdale, PA, formed in 2005. In my opinion, they're the most essential pop punk band from the 2000s. Not only are they catchy and fun as fuck on recordings and in concert, but their lyrics are so personal and powerful that it's tear-jerking on occasion. Even if you don't really care for pop punk, you've got to give these guys a try, they're too good to pass up.

DISCOGRAPHY NOTES:
  • I am uploading the remastered version of Get Stoked On It! 
  • Rather than uploading the plethora of EPs and splits these guys have done, I'm just going to upload their compilation album Sleeping On Trash, which has all of their recordings from 2005 to 2010 (except for GSOI!)

  1. Make a Joyce Manor post! They're better pop punk than the wonder years in my opinion.

    2. Joyce Manor is good, but they're definitely not pop-punk.
      You can't really compare TWY to Joyce Manor, TWY is a pop-punk powerhouse, while Joyce Manor has more of an indie emo vibe, but still a great band.

    3. Joyce Manor is definitely a moderate version of straight up punk, esp. with never hungover again out. Seconded, person above me.
