The Best of 1997: Favorite Hits From 20 Years Ago

Yep, the list you’ve all been waiting for (not really) is finally here. Feel free to offer up some laughs and critical remarks for the music I listened to the most 20 years ago. You’ll notice a heavy T&N presence and I just couldn’t help myself. There were a lot of albums and releases I found myself spinning back then and still getting plays today. I think that’s where this list falls in place, it’s the albums that had the longest lasting impact with me and had a catchy sound that I just couldn’t get enough of. I ride more on the commercial, melodic side of the market rather than all that arty ear splitting noise rock ;) I created a special Spotify play list that you can find near the end of the article. Some of these titles are out of print and only available in YouTube form so enjoy those unheard hits within the article. Remember kids, “some” of these releases may not have the best language so if you get queasy at the thought of dirty words from the general market (do we still use the word ‘secular’?) bands, you may want to skip those parts. So check out my faves below and don’t forget to check out “The Best of 2007” list which can be found here. Hop in your time machine and let’s get ready to party like its 1997! Continued →

Jason Dunn Announces New Band Name, New Songs, and LTTP Reunion

Jason Dunn (of Hawk Nelson/Lights Go Down) has announced he will be reuniting with some friends under a new band name and will have new songs to go with it. This new music will be similar to early Hawk Nelson, a band he fronted for more than a decade. He also has been teasing a tour of “Letters To The President” in 2019 (15th Anniversary of that album). Anyone stoked to hear new pop-punk by Jason Dunn? That last Lights Go Down ep was great and I have a feeling a new band in that Hawk Nelson/pop-punk style will get fans salivating. Stay tuned.
