Magnapop

This Athens, GA, band creates high-energy punk-pop with catchy hooks and literate lyrics. What makes Magnapop interesting (and different from many of the punk-pop bands out there) is the combination of Linda Hopper's smooth, unhurried vocals and the furious lashings of Ruthie Morris' guitar -- it creates a tension that makes the songs of this intelligent, underappreciated band all the more dramatic. Formed in 1987 by singer Linda Hopper (formerly of Oh OK), guitarist Ruthie Morris, drummer David McNair, and bassist Shannon Mulvaney, the group recorded a demo album with their friend Michael Stipe in 1992 which was released on Caroline Records. In 1994 the group released their "official" debut, Hot Boxing, on Priority. Hot Boxing was produced by another of the band's friends, Bob Mould, and features a more streamlined, intense approach than the quirky, off-kilter demos do. McNair was replaced by drummer Josh Freese before Rubbing Doesn't Help was released in 1996. The group continued tour for the rest of the '90s, then went on a lengthy hiatus before finally resurfacing with a new rhythm section, bassist Scott Rowe and drummer Chad Williams, and released Mouthfeel in 2005 on the Atlanta-based Daemon imprint. ~ Heather Phares

Yeah, I'd classify this more as powerpop than pop-punk. Pop-punk is more like Teen Idols/Ramone s - c o r e .

pop punk? When I hear that label I think of Blink 182. Magna is too cool to be mainstream ;) ( I realize that this may seem like I am being sarcastic but I am serious lol).
