Punk-Rock Music

The Sex Pistols were, despite their short existence, one of the most influential English punk bands. While The Clash were both more articulate and politically motivated, and The Buzzcocks had more astute pop sensibilities, no other band so strongly exemplified the British punk movement's spirit and inherent contradictions or made such a lasting impression on British popular culture.

My Chemical Romance (commonly abbreviated MCR) is a band whose members hail mostly from Belleville and Kearny, New Jersey, except for drummer Bob Bryar (from Chicago, Illinois). The band was formed by frontman Gerard Way and ex-drummer Matt Pelissier in 2001. MCR released their first full album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002 on independent label Eyeball Records. 2004 saw the release of their major label debut Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge and their first hit single "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)". A third album is planned for a 2006 release. Currently, My Chemical Romance is touring with Green Day.

Sum 41 are an Canadian Punk Rock band, from Ajax, Ontario, formed from members of rival bands 41 days into the summer of 1996. They signed a record deal with Island Records in 1999 and released their hair-metal/punk fusion album Half Hour Of Power and their second album All Killer No Filler came next, with Sum 41 releasing several international hit singles beginning with 2001's "Fat Lip". Does This Look Infected?, a more heavy punk album, came next, followed by Does This Look Infected Too?, a live bonus EP. The bands newest album, Chuck, is a mix of much heavier songs such as The Bitter End, and slower fillers such as Pieces.
