“Because the only thing that punk rock should ever really mean, is not sitting round and waiting for the lights to go green.”

Music suggestion of the week: Yungblud | Genre: Alternative/Rock | Yungblud (Dominic Harrison) has to be one of the most underrated alternative rock musicians I have come across in a while. His music focuses on real world issues and mental health, which you don’t hear a lot of in modern rock nowadays. His debut album “21st Century Liability” is out now on most music streaming platforms. Here are some links to a few of my favorite Yungblud songs: Medication, Polygraph Eyes, Anarchist, and Psychotic Kids.

I also want to wish all of my LGBT+ followers a happy pride month. I know the punk community can sometimes seem a little intimidating, especially when you’re part of a minority group, but I promise that this community (for the most part) will always support you and make you feel welcomed. I’ve always believed that as long as you’re not directly hurting yourself or others, you should be able to do whatever the hell you want and believe whatever the hell you want, and I apply that to this blog. I promise you I will always try my best to make anyone of the LGBT+ community feel supported and welcomed on my blog (unless if you’re like, an asshole). Stay safe and keep on spreading love, positivity, and (of course) punk music
Go check out this video when you have the time. @bleedboi2 uses a Heart Shaped Box sample to create a really lofi-esque sound (in a good way) that resonates with the 90’s grunge feel. (Her voice is also as smooth as honey so that adds to the awesomeness)
