February 2017 was a month which saw many a significant event in this former-but-not-really-former-at-all emo kid’s life. I saw AFI for the first time in New York, watched Adam Lazzara swing his mic (again), did a My Chemical Romance song at karaoke on a Monday night, went to a Drake concert on valentine’s day (this counts), spent more than one post-night-out belting out questionable pre-2010 pop punk in someone’s living room, and FROM FIRST TO LAST PLAYED A SHOW WITH SONNY MOORE. Also, every popular emo / pop-punk playlist on Spotify includes songs that were released after 2010 and is therefore extremely trash. Thus I present to you an extremely carefully curated playlist of bangers made overwhelmingly by mediocre white men who somehow managed to dominate the most defining era of my youth, that you waited eagerly for Kerrang and Scuzz to play when you got home from school instead of watching actual television, that are responsible for some of the most alarming haircuts since the popularisation of the mullet, and that you definitely still know all the words to so stop trying to pretend that you don’t.

This is such a perfect playlist! I keep telling myself I’m too old for emo but belting these out after a few drinks is still one of my favourite things to do haha. I had actually completely forgot about Body Bag until I saw this playlist though, such a tune!
I spent a lot of my time listening to Mayday Parade and youmeatsix in my youth! In fact I probably still do listen to them a lot… I love this playlist <3
G is for Gingers xx
