This is a WEIRD! time and we all acknowledge it. Many different artists have been doing their best to capture this point in history. Twenty One Pilots put out “Level of Concern” and JOJO has remixed her hit song “Leave (Get Out)” to encourage people to stay home, so of course hearing something from one of our favorite people was perfectly timed.

YUNGBLUD brings back some 80’s nostalgia with the cadence and overall feel of the...

Alright people! This is NOT A DRILL!

Hayley Williams of Paramore has officially released her first single as solo artist, Petals for Armor. The single is titled "Simmer" and we need to take a moment to appreciate this! This is such a different sound from what Paramore has done in the past, but nothing I can't see Hayley doing, which is exactly the point. The song has so many beautiful layers of vocals, harmonies, and other soun...

Happy New Year ALL! We are off and running for the new year with a single review for Heavy Hearts, an alternative rock band from Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. Heavy Hearts just dropped "Vexed" and it is a pinnacle in the alt rock resurgence.

The song is a well blended mix of intensely raw emotion and catchy beats - I kept catching myself head banging as I wrote this review.

The songs starts soft and...

Only seven months after releasing their second album, Launch Fly Land, DREAMERS are already beginning to enter a new era with “Desensitize.” The song is about all the messed up and corrupt stuff that is currently going on in the world that we have somehow become desensitized to. The song gives a unique perspective as singer, Nick Wold, says he’s not always singing as himself. And explains how some of the ly...

Hailing from New Jersey- the trio, America Part Two, have released their new single "Talk it Out!" 

Starting with a simple intro that builds upon itself as it starts with a bass line and crashes in with the rest of the band as it works up to the vocals. This build helped emphasis the importance of the lyrics as they poke at society’s view of people through social media and their desperate call for change and wanting to have a d...

I don’t know about you guys, but when it comes to 90’s pop punk music, I am a huge fan. The Phoenix Within has put out their newest release “South Ozone” which give me the exact vibe of 90’s pop punk. South Ozone is actually a neighborhood in Queens, NY where singer, Omar Feliciano, grew up. The song gives listeners a sense of nostalgia, but also heartbreak. Growing up is never easy and everyone goes through experiences that t...

Back in May, pronoun released her debut album “i’ll show you stronger.” The album has tons of indie synth pop hits like “temporary tantrum” and my personal favorite “everybody knows.” Her song “run” is also featured on the album, but apparently she wasn’t done with that song just yet. Yesterday she released a new version of the song remixed by chain gang of 1974. The pop, nu-wave song became a shimmering post-punk anthem. Her...

What's better on a Wednesday afternoon than a new song review?

New from Maggie Lindemann, featuring Travis Barker, is a remix to her "Friends Go". The original by Maggie had more of a No Doubt meets beach-pop vibe where as the remix thrives in the punk-rock realm thanks to Travis Barker's contributions to this track!  

Both are great, but this new version is hard to match! The life brought to the track makes...

Hailing from the infamous LA; the newly formed project of Samuel Larsen- NEXT CItY has put out a single that is a stellar new vibe needed on the main stream now! Their single "Blue Star" is a commentary on the on the duality of the Hollywood lifestyle. This garage band meets groove is an amazing addition to the pop and rock scene. The band carries elements from that classic 90's rock that today's music is missing. With the qui...

Once again, pop artist Halsey has proven herself as a force to be reckoned with. With her last single “Without Me" debuting at No. 1 on Billboard, she had a lot to live up and did not disappoint. Right now in America, there is a lot to be angry about. Very specifically though, about losing the rights to our own bodies and this song could not have come at a better time. Her new single “Nightmare” expresses a lot of shit people...

 WHAT IS PUNK? 

 

If you look at the Merriam-Webster definition of punk, you would find a motley of things. At Punk Junk Magazine, we believe in punk as a culture: a badass social interpretation built by those who are bold, electric, and unapologetically themselves. In our eyes, a punk is someone who fights for what they want regardless of obstacles or outside forces; they put their hearts and souls into their passions and make their dreams a reality. Being punk means being yourself, despite social norms and peer-pressure; punk is having a sense of awareness, respect for yourself and others, and an open mind. So to that, we say... why be a dreamer when you can be a PUNK!
