What are your personal favourite pop-punk albums of all time, Ben?
Ben Barlow: “It’s pretty hard. It’d have to be between blink-182’s Take Off Your Pants And Jacket, because that’s the album that got me into them, Take This To Your Grave by Fall Out Boy, or New Found Glory’s self-titled album. Everyone knows I’m a massive blink fanboy, but for once I’ll take Fall Out Boy. I think it’s just really, really underrated. It has some of their best songs on it, by far, and there’s a lot in that album that modern pop-punk bands take from. I think it was the beginning of the modern pop-punk sound; it was after that first wave, so it had the elements of that early-2000s sound, but it brought a harder element that we now like to incorporate into our sound.”
