Music / The Wonder Years

The Wonder Years are a Pop Punk/Emo band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania known for being the Trope Maker for the Defend Pop Punk movement of Alternative Rock.

They are notable among Emo-influenced bands for much of their discography having lyrical themes that are far more "mature" than most bands of the genre: their critically acclaimed "Depression" trilogy deals with, among other things, gentrification, homelessness, death of close friends/family, quarter-life crisis, and generational differences.

Their fifth studio album "No Closer To Heaven" reached #12 on the Billboard Charts in the United States.
