pop punk to the rescue
It's amazing how one band can make music that seems like it was made just for you, just for how you are feeling at a low point. Home Grown have certainly made an album that just talks to me at the moment. It says everything I want to say but can't. I could listen to the album, "King Of Pop", back to back and in every song there would be lyrics that I can relate to. The glory of pop punk is it is filled with teen angst, stories of rejection, stories of love lost and stories of love gained. I don't think any other genre really encapsulates that feeling of being a teenager that no one really understands. Thank you Home Grown for writing possibly one of my favourite albums ever and filling it with stories I can relate to in a time of need and reminding me that I am not alone.
