New Found Glory

When Nothing Gold Can Stay was released in 1999, New Found Glory epitomized the pop-punk revolution. With nasally, post-adolescent vocals and a mosh-able beat, songs like "Hit or Miss" became anthems for Hot Topic-goers. Eleven years later, New Found Glory is still recording the same music. 2009's Not Without A Fight has a few more harmonies and some slower tempos than Nothing Gold, but the album is pop-punk to the core. That's where New Found Glory stands apart from the Get Up Kids, a similar-sounding band that captured the hearts and stereos of Generation Y. While the Get Up Kids are now reuniting, playing songs from their 1997 and 1999 albums, New Found Glory is currently on an anniversary tour, playing new songs that just sound like they were written in the 90s.
