Bump... finally got around to checking out State Champs and Real Friends. State Champs are easily the best pop punk I've discovered since The Story So Far and Real Friends isn't bad, but the vocalist is a little too whiny for my liking. Between these two, Story So Far and Neck Deep, I can say with complete certainty that the pop punk bands this year are better on the whole than last year imo.
