The Living End
The Living End

If you removed the ska influence from Rancid and injected Green Day with even more melodic sense, you'd wind up with this Aussie three-piece.
With a voice (and look) reminiscent of Brian Setzer, lead singer Chris Cheney addresses standard punk issues - non-conformity, bringing down the establishment, etc. - in the lyrics, but the band keep it fun without getting too heavy. Sadly overlooked by radio due to 1999's tidal wave of white-boy rap-metal, the band's self-titled debut is 47 minutes of skateable, stage-divin'-able, pop-punk thrash. Between The Living End and MxPx, who needs Green Day any longer? The next generation has arrived. (Reprise) [MS]
