Best Songs of The Drive Thru Records Era

With Memorial Day weekend upon us, we take a look back at the songs of yesteryear with songs from one of the most influential labels of my youth, Drive-Thru Records. The Sherman Oaks, CA based label was instrumental in bringing so many pop-punk bands to my attention, including Something Corporate, New Found Glory, and perhaps my favorite of all of them, The Starting Line. Founded by brother and sister Richard and Stefanie Raines, this label worked so well because they both passionately loved music and wanted to bring to the forefront the bands that were generating the most attention from their respective fanbases and ones that were on the cusp of achieving something special. I've generated a specially curated playlist below documenting the songs that were most memorable during the label's tenure and ones that defined the pop-punk essence of who I am today and countless others here and around the world. Here it is:

Allister - Somewhere on Fullerton

Fenix TX - All My Fault

The Early November - Ever So Sweet

Senses Fail - One Eight Seven

Something Corporate - I Woke Up In A Car

The Starting Line - The Best of Me
