Milo is a pretty close second for my favorite punk vocalist. In a time where hardcore punk frontmen were all tough guys and anarchist, Milo was just a nerd. He wasn't angry at the government or the police, he was angry about getting bullied and being put in the friendzone. Only their first EP and full length were really hardcore, then they went on to become one of the first ever pop punk bands. For many people (myself included) Milo is one of the most relatable frontmen in punk. He's very believable when he sings, he always sounds like he really means it. He also had a phd in biochemistry. Just thought i'd put that out there.

Example: Coolidge/Everything Sucks live at Pinkpop '97
Fuck yeah!
