Dying Scene Readers Choice: 25 Best Albums of 2016 (So Far)

Around the end of June we asked you to submit your favorite albums that have been released thus far this year. Any punk (or punk-related sub-genre) albums released for the first time between January 1, 2016 and June 30, 2016 were fair game. After a crap load of tedious data entry and more Red Bull than is probably healthy, the results are officially in for your choices of the 25 best punk albums released so far in 2016.

You can check out  the list below. For your convenience, we’ve included links to stream each entry so you can catch up on any albums that you might have missed.
