Because we've come over all pop-punk this month, we've got a few of our favourite artists to pick their favourite pop-punk album of all time. According to Dan Campbell, The Get Up Kids' 'Something To Write Home About' is "fucking Everest"!

"The easy and first and correct answer for me is ‘Something To Write Home About’ by The Get Up Kids, so if you’re counting that as pop-punk, that is fucking Everest. That’s the top of it -  that’s the best it’s going to get. The genre will never get to that level again. They are the pinnacle.

"How did I first get into it? You know it was about a girl! I was in like 8th or 9th grade and a girl was wearing a The Get Up Kids T-shirt and I was like ‘I need to find out what the motherfucking Get Up Kids are, I gotta make sure I know this'. There wasn’t really a record store near my house but when we would go vacation there’d be a record store in the beach town and I went and I bought ‘Something To Write Home About’, spun it 'til it didn’t work, then I bought it again, spun it 'til it didn’t work. It’s a record that I still play today."
