    Pop music has always dominated the airwaves. And while we're experiencing some pretty damn good mainstream pop acts at the moment, Top 40 has done what it always has and melded them all together to create a repetitive, predictable playlist void of much sonic innovation and evolution. Luckily for those fatigued by the same mindless listening experiences, punk music is experiencing its own Renaissance.

    Borrowing from the grunge, garage rock, and, yes, even pop genres, punk rock is pushing its own boundaries to create some seriously good tunes. From girl-power groups like Bleached, Potty Mouth, and Girlpool to the politically motivated Downtown Boys and G.L.O.S.S., check out the most exciting punk bands of the moment in the gallery below. And, please, add them to your playlists. Your Spotify needs it.
