For Steve Caballero, the intersection of punk and skateboarding has always been at the forefront of what he does and creates for the world. Caballero burst onto the skateboarding scene in the groundbreaking years of the early ’80s and ’90s, skating alongside the sport’s most iconic figures while living in Southern California during its renaissance […]
The most notable aspect of punk rock in 2002 was the mainstream ascension of garage for the first time since the ‘60s. But all those albums by the Strokes, the White Stripes and the Hives that went mega this year were all recorded and released in 2002. Which explains their inclusion on this list, rather […]
Forming in the early 1990s, H2O released several acclaimed records that have gone on to inspire generations of artists with their fast, energetic music paired with vocalist Toby Morse’s emotional lyrics that tackle subjects such as family, loss, friendship and staying true to your roots.

At this point, you could practically write a textbook on the art of creating a pop-punk song. Ever since people discovered Green Day’s Dookie and the masses fell in love with “All The Small Things” on MTV, the genre has blossomed. Pop punk’s big break didn’t mean the genre got locked into a formula, either. […]

Conservative public policy bulwark […]
The organizers of Riot Fest have announced that the festival is returning to Douglass Park in Chicago this fall. In typical Riot fashion, the lineup for Sept. 17, 18 and 19 is stacked. “We’ve missed you and we can’t wait to see you this year,” the festival organizers shared.

To consider Alternative Press’ list of 1994’s top 15 punk albums, one has to bear in mind two factors: Green Day’s Dookie was released Feb. 1. Kurt Cobain died by his own hand April 5. The alternative nation’s voice was suddenly, shockingly stilled. After three years of the most popular music being an agonized scream […]
If the past year has proved anything, it’s that Travis Barker is the king of collaborations. From providing instrumentation and production for Machine Gun Kelly‘s Tickets To My Downfall to featuring under FEVER 333, Atreyu, Tyler Posey and phem, the blink-182 drummer has been keeping busy. But that’s hardly a change of pace. Barker has been extending his talents far and […]

The mood of 1992: “We won!” Nirvana’s Nevermind sold by the truckload hourly. All anyone could talk about was alternative rock and grunge. Record biz execs walked around that spring’s SXSW convention in Austin in floppy, artfully unwashed hair, just-purchased flannel shirts and ripped jeans. You’d pass a line of them in the parking lot […]
