The 2010s brought us a new wave of alternative music. From the rise of pop-punk revivalists, including State Champs and Neck Deep, to modern hardcore outfits such as FEVER 333, the scene is alive as ever.
Much like during the pop-punk heyday of the 2000s, our favorite bands feel like an extension of who we are. So, naturally, we have to question which modern vocalists are most representative of our personalities.
Take the quiz below to see which iconic alternative 2010s vocalist you best align with.
More on 2010s alternative music
While many associate alternative culture with mid-2000s pop punk and emo, the scene has continued to thrive throughout the past decade. This comes partially by way of the continued progression of early rooted artists such as Panic! At The Disco, Paramore, and Fall Out Boy. However, the rise of newer bands with diverse influences and sounds has also contributed significantly to shaping the modern scene.
Largely, the alternative genre shifted over the 2010s to include more electronica, hip-hop and indie elements. Genre-bending bands such as Neon Trees and twenty one pilots rose to the forefront, dominating radio waves.
Though it would seem that pop punk in particular lost its mainstream appeal in the 2010s, recent trends have given hope for a new spotlight on the genre. In September, rapper Machine Gun Kelly released his pop-punk album, Tickets To My Downfall, which has since topped various charts. Other notable artists, such as YUNGBLUD and Halsey, attribute their success largely to their pop-punk foundations.
Perhaps the best evidence of alternative music’s perpetual hold on us is the continued success of the final Vans Warped Tour. The eclectic festival celebrated 25 years in 2019, drawing in thousands of fans with acts including the Used, Four Year Strong and blink-182. Although Warped Tour as we know it appears to be in the rearview, a tweet by Kevin Lyman earlier this year suggests that we may see a new incarnation in the future.
