Here’s some late night action for you – someone in the Defend Pop Punk Forum on Facebook recently posted something interesting. It revolves around what certain bands would be like if they were high school students. Do you think these are accurate, or totally off? Regardless, it’s entertaining. Check out the full list after the jump – and be sure to add your own if you feel creative!
And since we’re all about supporting music, I’ll take this opportunity to suggest everyone listen to NY pop-punk band Firestarter. You can find their Bandcamp page here – be sure to purchase their music if you’re feeling it!
