A Week In Punk: Last Week’s Top Stories Recapped (1/6/12)

As shameful as it is some of you readers don’t actually check Dying Scene every hour of every day.  For you slackers we’ve put together a list of last week’s biggest stories to help you stay in the loop and maintain your punk cred.  You’re welcome.

1. Dying Scene editors gave you a list of their favorite albums from 2012. From the looks of it, we really dig The Menzingers, but there are some definite surprises in there.

2. We recapped our gnarliest stories of 2012. Delving into the archives we pulled out a list of the year’s most outlandish, shocking and heartbreaking stories.

3. Streetlight Manifesto’s trombonist catches the thief who stole his cell phone in a very clever way. I almost wish somebody would steal my cell phone so I could do the same thing.

4. You guys gave us your best albums of the year list. Your top 20 picks weren’t too far from ours, but the results definitely gave us some new albums to check out – you’ll surely discover some new gems as well.

5. NOFX is putting out a thirty-year box set. Please just take a second to reflect on the fact that NOFX has been around for thirty years.

6. Holy hell! Hot damn! Against Me!’s new album is due out by May! The highly-anticipated “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” is so close we can almost hear it.

7. Implants signed to Cyber Tracks. Forged from from memebers of bands like Pulley, Strung Out and Ten Foot pole, Implants are releasing their debut album sometime this year on El Jefe of NOFX’s new record label.

8. The Menzingers played “Good Things” live on AltarTV. You know what? If you guys like them so much, why don’t you marry them?

9. Henry Rollins is releasing at least two books next year. He’ll also be acting.

10. The Architects teased their new video. “Border Wars” is due out this Spring.

And for you sophisticates, we dissected Minutemen’s classic album “Double Nickels On The Dime” in this week’s edition of Sacred Cow Saturday.

Let us know what we missed, what you loved, what you hated and what your personal favorite story was in the comments.
