We haven't had one of Eda's awesome Bored On Sunday discussions in a while, so I figured I'd whip one up for a discussion topic on a slow-moving Sunday. My question today is, which bands that we cover on AP.net should be on the radio today? Although it seems like a distant past, it wasn't all that long ago that pop-punk bands like All Time Low, Yellowcard, Fall Out Boy and many others graced the airwaves and MTV (when MTV played music videos). I've outlined a few songs that have come out recently that I think would have been on the radio back when these types of bands were more common. Take to the replies to discuss which songs and bands you think should be on regular rotation.
I think based on where radio friendly rock is going (which is more accessible indie rock ala fun., Gotye, Young The Giant, etc.)
Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks
It's fun, bouncy, has a guy sings one line girl sings one line routine and has trumpets. Boom.
Good Old War - Amazing Eyes This (as well as the rest of the album) is destined to make pseduo-intellectual college girls swoon all over America. I'm surprised their new album hasn't gotten more love, it's pretty darn fun.
Torche - Kicking
This song has the ass-kicking fury of Mastodon, the pop melodies of Foo Fighters and the utter gleefulness of Andrew W.K. In short, it's fucking awesome.
