Every year since 2001, AltPress has made it our mission to introduce you to 100 up-and-coming bands, and looking back, we got it right at least a couple times. We recently scoured our back-issues for some of the artists who have since made the most impact.

Take a trip through AP history with these artists about whom we can definitely say, “Told you so!”

Which artists from our 2015 issue do you think will make waves? Let us know in the comments!
