This week on Unplugged, Tyler and John dive headfirst into this week's news and a handpicked topic to debate.

  • Sum 41 dethrones Blink-182! After 22 years, Sum 41 blasts back to the top of the charts with their song "Landmines," knocking Blink-182's "One More Time" out of the No.1 spot on Billboard's Alternative Airplay Chart. Are we surprised?
  • Hardcore band fires singer... for estrogen? In a story that's sure to leave you scratching your head, Tyler and John unpack the bizarre tale of a hardcore band firing their vocalist for allegedly dosing the bassist with estrogen. Is this real? We use ChatGPT to find out.
  • Why do we think pop punk is no longer "mainstream'? Pop punk (and emo) have seen a resurgence of sorts over the last couple of years. With only a select few artists hitting the mainstream during that time, why has pop punk failed to stay?
