To celebrate the August 19th release of brand new pop punk compilation Teenage Dirtbags, we have 3 copies of the rock-filled double album to give away to three lucky readers.
The album features pop punk classics, and tub-thumping guitar anthems from the likes of New Found Glory, Sum 41, Reel Big Fish and A, with 44 songs of inspired rocky goodness dedicated to celebrating the best the genre has ever offered.
The attitude-heavy compilation is a must for fans of bands like Blink 182, Smash Mouth and P.O.D. and is the perfect way to celebrate the golden era of pop punk, when jeans were baggier, hoodies were hoodier and only the people who didn’t care about being cool had tattoos.
Here’s a megamix of exactly what you can expect from the CD…

It's been more than a decade since the 1990s ended, yet the Internet can't seem to go a day without a reminder of the neon slap bracelets that may have been banned from your school.
Yes, we get it. Times are tough and there's comfort in reflection, but enough is enough.
Below, a final goodbye to the 90s to end the nostalgia once and for all. (We're not kidding. There are 1990 items below.)

Jimmy Eat World are a unifying band. They have fans from all sorts of musical persuasions. They enjoy patronage from Indie kids, skin-headed hardcore elitists, Skate-punkers, arty Post-Hardcore types, Metal-heads and mums and dads.
Everyone’s favorite Emo band hail from Arizona and have been together for twenty years now, releasing numerous albums and Ep’s. Such is their broad appeal that they have toured with the likes of Green Day, Weezer, Taking Back Sunday, Blink 182, New Found Glory and many more.
This month saw the release of their eighth full length record, ‘Damage’, and of course, it is superb.
Let’s look at just five of the many reasons why we love Jimmy Eat World.
5. They Look Like Regular Dudes
They’ve sold a couple of million records, played pretty high up on major festival bills, toured the world, regularly sell out their own headlining shows and graced magazine covers. »

Not many bands can draw a crowd from so many generations. From 6 year olds in banners bigger than they are to teens with My Chemical Romance tattoos to middle age punks with Bad Religion jackets they are all being represented here today.
All Time Low are essentially a Blink 182 tribute band to the kids who were too young for the three piece. Their perky pop with guitars is entertaining enough although unoriginal. The more upbeat ‘Time Bomb’ and ‘Lost In Stereo’ go down best in a half empty stadium. Jack Barakat, per usual, lowers the tone with butt and your mum jokes and it just feels unnecessary and a tad creepy.

Since announcing their reunion just a few weeks ago, the Postal Service -- the beloved duo of Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard and DJ Jimmy Tamborello -- have already planned a re-issue of their first album, an extensive tour coming up and a now new video for Funny or Die. In the star-studded video, a 2002-era Tamborello sits with a Sub Pop rep as they audition potential members for his new project, the Postal Service. The auditions draw the likes of "Weird" Al Yankovic, "Angry" Moby, Blink-182's Tom DeLonge, Aimee Mann, Guns 'n' Roses' Duff McKagan ("That's a weird name"), and more. Of »

The 37-year-old drummer admits he's too afraid to fly since he survived the horrific Sept. 2008 plane crash that claimed the lives of four passengers, including his friend and assistant Chris Baker and security guard Che Still.
In a Facebook post, Barker writes:
I'm sorry to announce i won't be joining Blink-182 on this Australian tour. I still haven't gotten over the horrific events that took place the last time i flew when my plane crashed and 4 people were killed, two being my best friends. I gave the band my blessing to take another drummer if they still wanted to do the tour without me. I hope to come to Australia again some day perhaps by ship if need be. Unfortunately, there wasn't a boat that worked with the schedule this time around. Once again I'm sorry to all the fans. »
