Neck Deep’s Ben Barlow: My Favourite Pop-Punk Album Of All Time Is…

In the spirit of our super mega pop-punk issue, the Neck Deep frontman tells us why New Found Glory's self-titled album is the closest to his heart.

"My favourite pop-punk album is New Found Glory’s self-titled album. I think that was probably the first album that me and my brother bought with our own money. We asked our mum like ‘please can we have this’ and it didn’t have the parental advisory sticker on it so we didn’t have to cover it up with another like, a sale sticker. I think it was one of the first albums where the lyrics genuinely sunk in and I really got hooked on the melodies. When I was six or seven years old, I fully remember 'Sincerely Me' being just melted into my brain."

To find out what we think are the 101 most essential pop-punk albums of all time, pick up the new issue of Rock Sound. You can download it digitally, order a copy to your door or grab a copy from all good newsagents, supermarkets and WH Smiths in the UK and Ireland today.
