2016 is looking like the year popular punk bands of the 90s and early 2000's are going to make their resurgence.

We've seen it start with Blink-182's California and there are two more bands that 90s babies might recognize, who will be releasing some new music in 2016.

Blink-182's California album was brilliant. It featured all of the aspects of that great punk/skateboarding music that we all loved.

The music also speaks to all, not just those who appeal to that crowd the most. Their tracks like "Bored To Death" served as both nostalgic and inspiring as they proved that punk is not dead.

As if Blink-182's resurgence wasn't good enough, Good Charlotte is getting ready to release another album titled, Youth Authority. The singles find the band sticking to their roots which fans will definitely appreciate.

"Life Changes" and "Life Can't Get Much Better" are standout singles off of Youth Authority, so far. The album is scheduled to release on July 15.

Meanwhile, Sum-41 will be bringing us 13 Voices in October. the first single titled, "Fake My Own Death" is hard-hitting and authentic in every way.

The edgy sound is just as intense as we remember it and it's definitely signs of good things ahead. The band will also be performing on the Vans Warper Tour 2016. 13 Voice is scheduled for an October 7, 2016 release.
