25 Albums. #15: dorkrockcorkrod by The Ergs!

Just like Green Day aped the Ramones and Rancid were trying to be The Clash in the 90's, the Ergs! took the Descendents formula (short songs about girls or nerdy things with a technical precision that shouldn't belong in punk rock) and just ran with it.

I don't think there's much else to say about that. I discovered this album kind of late (about three or four years after it came out) but it really rejuvenated my faith in modern day pop punk. Especially in this day and age when people think of bands like Good Charlotte or All Time Low as pop punk.


Oh yeah, and the title is a palindrome. Dorks.
