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.
1) Circuits And Wires
2) True Romance
3 Son Of A Gun
5) Everyone Will Die
6) The Coma Kid
8) The Worst Is Yet To Come
9) Bad Idea
10) Happy Anniversary
11) Floating Down The River

According to a recent Q & A interview at the McNally Smith College of Music, Motion City Soundtrack will be releasing their fifth studio album next spring through their new label called Boombox Generation. The interview can be seen in the replies.
