Dead Sara – “Dead Sara”

When I first heard Dead Sara on a local metal/hard rock radio station, I was caught off guard. I don’t listen to any nu-metal anymore, but when I was channel surfing, I couldn’t help but stop when I heard this band. The song was “Weatherman” by this band called Dead Sara, who I’ve never heard […]

Pennywise – “All or Nothing”

Pennywise. No, not the clown. I’m talking about one of the most popular and influential punk bands in punk rock. But if you’ve never heard of them, let me give you a little history lesson. They are one of the very first bands credited with starting the whole “it’s cool to listen to punk music […]

No Trigger - Tycoon

No Trigger – “Tycoon”

Back in late 2010, the hardcore punk band No Trigger released this video, announcing that they were getting back together to write a new record. Before this, their last full length album (Caynoneer) takes us all the way back to 2006 so at this point, fans of the band were just dying for new material. […]

The Fray - "Scars & Stories"

The Fray – “Scars & Stories”

Piano-driven ballads aren’t my thing. Neither was soft rock. So you put the two together, and you think it’d be a recipe for disaster for me. Not when it comes to The Fray. I’ve always admired this band because they’re always able to suck me into their music for being a style I RARELY listen […]

The Menzingers - "On The Impossible Past"

The Menzingers – “On The Impossible Past”

The Menzingers are a band I associate with beer, raw, gruff voices, and just plain fun times. A dream tour I just thought of that would actually work: These guys + The Flatliners + Against Me! + The Gaslight Anthem. I’m pretty sure that would be the greatest time of my life. Anyways, onto this […]

Hit The Lights – “Invicta”

Hit The Lights have been one of the more popular bands in pop punk over the past several years. They burst onto the scene with This Is A Stickup… Don’t Make It A Murder in 2006, which is still considered a favorite by many fans. The first song I heard by these guys was “Bodybag” […]

Anti-Flag – “The General Strike”

You know, I’ve never really been one for political music. And to be honest, I don’t even agree with a lot of what these guys have to say. But still, Anti-Flag has remained, to this day, as being one of my favorite bands. You can’t NOT appreciate the honesty in their music, and the passion […]

Nada Surf - "The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy"

Nada Surf – “The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy”

Well, here’s a review you don’t see my typically do on Electric Mohawk. But in 2012, I’m making a conscious effort to expand my musical interests and that begins with Nada Surf —  an indie rock band with a discography dating all the way back to the mid 90s. Shockingly, I have NEVER given these […]

Enter Shikari – “A Flash Flood of Colour”

When I was little, I dressed up as an astronaut, and explored outer space. I dressed up as a super hero, and ran about the place. I dressed up as a fireman, and rescued those in need. I dressed up as a doctor, and cured every disease. From the get-go, you’ll notice that Enter Shikari […]

Punk Goes… Christmas?

  I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas with some of my favorite punk rock holiday jams! “I Won’t Be Home For Christmas” (live) – Blink 182. This is an OLD classic. I remember listening to this in middle school all the time. This video marks the first time in a decade that […]
