Formed in 1997 and releasing their first home recorded EP in the same year, New Found Glory is a major name in the PopPunk genre. They are noted for their extremely fast and energetic tempo. However, with their more recent albums, they have developed a much more rounded rock sound. The fivesome consists of Jordan Pundik (Lead Vocalist), Chad Gilbert (Lead Guitarist), Steve Klein (Rhythm Guitarist/Lyricist), Ian Grushka (Bassist), and Cyrus Bolooki (Drummer.)

They have been widely regarded as the architects of their genre, along with {{Blink 182}}, and over the span of seven recorded albums, have developed a strong and dedicated fanbase.

* TheCoverChangesTheGender: Their cover of "Kiss Me", which takes on the perspective of the guy.
* CoverVersion: ''From The Screen to Your Stereo'' parts I and II, as well as covers contributed to compilation albums, live performances, and various [=EP=]s.

* GriefSong: "Sonny" and "When I Die."
* HarshVocals: Whenever Chad gets a chance to sing a line or two, such as on "Singled Out".
* LetsDuet: The cover of "Stay (I Missed You) is a duet between Pundik and Lisa Loeb, who sang the original song.
* LighterAndSofter: The overall tone of ''Coming Home'' is more upbeat and mellow.
** "Ending In Tragedy" and "I Don't Wanna Know" are much more mellow than the rest of ''Catalyst'', which is largely rather fast paced and aggressive. The bonus track "Whiskey Rose" from the Japanese release of the album is a rather cute acoustic number.
* LongRunnerLineup: Type 1. 15 years and going with the same five guys since 1997.
** This is now no longer the case, as they shocked ''everyone'' when they announced that they [[http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=3581881 parted ways]] with Steve for undisclosed personal reasons.
* LyricalDissonance: Sonny is very upbeat for a song about death.
* NewSoundAlbum: ''Coming Home'' is much LighterAndSofter in comparison to ''Catalyst'' with more use of acoustic melodies, piano, and female backing vocals. Subsequent releases would go back to their hardcore and pop-punk roots.
* PerishingAltRockVoice: In the early days of the band, Jordan's voice tended to fall on the wailing end of the scale. His singing voice has gotten deeper since ''Coming Home''.
* PowerBallad: Their singles "I Don't Wanna Know" and "It's Not Your Fault".
* RecordProducer: Steve and Chad are of the DIY [=/=] Artist as Producer flavors, having done production work on the band's songs and albums, and served as record producers for other bands in the genre.

* ShoutOut: The "Head On Collision" video has the band's nickelodeon show as being presented by Creator/{{Troma}} Studios.
* SillyLoveSongs: The other half of their songs, and it's most prevalent on ''Coming Home''.
* SurrealMusicVideo:
** "All Downhill From Here" features the band in a universe full of strange creatures, playing on a stage that rises higher and higher before spectacularly plummeting downwards.
** "Failure's Not Flattering" in which the band are shrunken to midget form and get up to all sorts of capers, including Jordan switching heads with a fly.
** "Head On Collision" had the band as a nickelodeon attraction with various things happening to the band as they play, such as Jordan's head swelling, Chad getting his head flattened, and Cyrus losing body parts.
* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth
* TitleTrack: ''Coming Home'' and ''Radiosurgery''.
* VocalTagTeam: On some of their hardcore-influenced songs, Jordan does the singing while Chad does the screaming.
