Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Alternative Rock Albums

ttt-albums

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is all about audio! I’ve already discussed my favorite audiobooks at length and most of the podcasts that I listen to are about personal finance (interesting to me, most likely boring to everyone else), so instead I thought I’d just share my favorite albums of the alternative rock genre.

My taste in music is eclectic: I listen to everything from hip-hop to house, from country to k-pop. But my go-to genre is alternative rock, specifically of the pop-punk variety. Some people may brand these albums as emo, but I did too much research on emo history as a teenager to make that amateur mistake.

Next year is my ten-year high school reunion, and although you couldn’t pay me enough money to relive those days, let’s just say I left my musical heart in the last decade.

Listed by the year they were released, here are my top ten favorite alternative rock albums:

  1. Simple Plan: “No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls” (2002)
  2. My Chemical Romance: “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge” (2004)
  3. Fall Out Boy: “From Under the Cork Tree” (2005)
  4. 30 Seconds to Mars: “A Beautiful Lie” (2005)
  5. AFI: “Decemberunderground” (2006)
  6. Forever the Sickest Kids: “Underdog Alma Mater” (2008)
  7. Mayday Parade: “Monsters in the Closet (2013)
  8. All Time Low: “Future Hearts” (2015)
  9. Bring Me the Horizon: “That’s the Spirit” (2015)
  10. Compilations: “Punk Goes Pop” volumes 2-6 (2009-2014)

Anyone else in their late 20s who love listening to these albums? Let me know if I missed one of your favs!
