Alright, so I'm really trying to get into this band. I don't really hate any of the songs I've heard, but none have really stood out. Any song suggestions would be appreciated. I've heard all of Suburbia, but haven't delved too deep into their other releases, if that helps at all. Or maybe even some related bands would help
I wouldn't start with Suburbia. I'd basically start with any other release. I personally started with Get Stoked!, but starting at Won't Be Pathetic Forever or even The Upsides might be better. I feel like I wouldn't have enjoyed Suburbia near as much if I wasn't familiar with Upsides.

If your looking for straight up songs, the big songs from the Upsides are "My Last Semester" "Logans Circle" "Melrose Diner" "Washington Square Park", but I'd suggest listening through the album instead.

Start with won't be pathetic forever, then the Upsides. Wouldn't even bother with Get Stoked On It unless you like joke songs. The band hates that record.

Start with Won't Be Pathetic Forever, then The Upsides, then Suburbia, so you can hear them progress. GSOI is a fun record to spin every now and again but I wouldn't suggest it as a starting point. Distances split and the b-sides are all good but you should hear the progression of the actual records first. Personally, as fantastic as Suburbia is, I still prefer listening to WBPF and The Upsides more often than not.

For song suggestions: Won't Be Pathetic Forever and You're Not Salinger. Get Over It. from Won't Be Pathetic Forever; Washington Square Park, Melrose Diner, Logan Circle, This Party Sucks from The Upsides; Came Out Swinging, Don't Let Me Cave In, Hoodie Weather, Summers in PA from Suburbia. Not necessarily my favorite tracks from each release but good starting points to get into TWY. Melrose and This Party Sucks were the two songs that hooked me on this band.

Distances split was the best thing they were part of. All or Nothing's side actually competes with better songs too.

Agreeing with that. WBPF is the best place to start.

I would suggest, try and get to a show.
That normally gets me to the next level for alot of bands, but thats just me.

I agree with most and would start with the early stuff to understand the progression of the records or
simply say fuck it, it's punk rock ...

i'd give the whole discography a listen in order so you can really get a feel from where they were in the beginning to where they are now. i couldn't get in to suburbia at first but then after going through some changes in my personal life i get it

I bought one of each color of the 6" split with Stay Ahead of the Weather, and I can't even figure out why I did that. If you are interested in taking 1 or 2 of them off my hands, send me a pm.
