    So pleased to see The Shell Corporation in there! Mandrake is an excellent album as are their previous releases. It’s great to see them getting a bit of recognition at last.
    This list just goes to show what a strong year 2014 was for punk releases and proves that punk music is still alive and well and the scene is thriving.
    Here’s to some more great music in 2015! Cheers.

    Surprised Pears isn’t on there, honestly the only bands I agree with in the top ten are PUP and Joyce Manor, most of the others just show how boring most people’s taste is. Rancid and Lagwagon? Seriously? 2014 was an awesome year for punk rock– with tons of great new acts and amazing albums, we don’t have to travel back to the fucking 90s for good music.

    Well said Carson Winter. It’s time to move on. We Will Fly, Class Of ’86, White Stain. These bands are where it’s at now. It’s nice to hear new music from the bands that introduced my of us to the world of punk. But best album of the year? Sorry, but no.

    No Counterpunch or Forus? But we have the new Rancid and Joyce Manor? Shame.
