I’ve been reading My So-Called Punk by Matt Diehl, which chronicles a bit of the history of punk rock through the 70s and 80s into the neo-punk explosion of the mid-90s to present, over the past couple of weeks, and I got in my head to try to mirror the books exploration of punk rock hardcore, pop-punk, and faux punk with a Weekly Spotify Playlist. Brilliant idea, let me tell you!
This playlist took me about 3 hours to curate, and I feel disgusting for putting a Good Charlotte song on this site, but the guy talked a lot about them. Oh crap, I forgot about The Ataris (groans…) brb. Okay, I got it.
While I don’t love all of the music on this playlist by any means, I feel like it’s a pretty accurate playlist chronicling the same things that My So-Called Punk chronicles. I’m sorry if you don’t like it, but remember that I haven’t had a blast reading this book.
Any way, as always, the 8 billion featured artists will be featured after the break. Enjoy? Maybe?
