Note: This average is based on all the tracks averaged together, obviously some are better than others

Who:

A wide variety of pop-punk bands from all around the world including the United States, Germany, Japan, Australia, UK, Italy, and the Cayman Islands. These bands were assembled by Dave Parasite and feature some bands you may have heard before (Squirtgun, The Queers, The Parasites) and some you may not have (The Spazzys, Janez Detd, and The Wimpy’s). A portion of the proceeds from this compilation will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

How Is It?

As with most compilations, Dave Parasite Presents: Pop-Punk’s Not Dead is hit or miss. This compilation features great songs by the heavyweights of the disc (The Queers, Squirtgun, Parasites, River City High) and a slew of good up and coming acts (The Ergs!, The Unlovables, Mach Pelican) and would serve as a good starting point for those looking to get into the older style of pop-punk. This collection of energetic, hook-laden pop punk anthems is enjoyable and sure to spark a few sing-a-longs, but at 30 tracks, Dave Parasite Presents: Pop-Punk’s Not Dead is too longwinded for the casual fan. However, even if you are only interested in a few songs, I recommend picking this up to check out some of the newer talent in the pop-punk world and to support a worthy cause.
