Always on
3.  Always on by Gameface

The Places You Have Come to Ha
4.  The Places You Have Come to Ha by Dashboard Confessional

Your Favourite Weapon
5.  Your Favourite Weapon by Brand New

Blue Skies, Broken Hearts... Next 12 Exits
6.  Blue Skies, Broken Hearts... Next 12 Exits by Ataris

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

So Long, and Thanks for All the Shoes
7.  So Long, and Thanks for All the Shoes by NOFX

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Five Stories Falling
8.  Five Stories Falling by Thursday
The list author says:

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

This Time Next Year
14.  This Time Next Year by The Movielife

3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Progress
15.  Progress by Rx Bandits

Hello Rockview/Losing Streak
16.  Hello Rockview/Losing Streak by Less Than Jake

Nothing Gold Can Stay
17.  Nothing Gold Can Stay by New Found Glory
The list author says:
  "New Found Glory are a great, fun, pop-punk band. This is there least fun release and strangely my favourite. It just has a certain charm and is a bit more varied. The covers EP is brilliant too."

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Stay What You Are
18.  Stay What You Are by Saves the Day
The list author says:

4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

The Colour and the Shape
19.  The Colour and the Shape by Foo Fighters

Save the World Lose the Girl
20.  Save the World Lose the Girl by Midtown

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Hitler Bad, Vandals Good
21.  Hitler Bad, Vandals Good by The Vandals
The list author says:
  "The Vandals are not quite as good as NOFX but they're the only band who come close without being too much of a rip off. I played the tuba once so I approve of its use on this album!"
15.95   Used & New from: 2.48
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Sorry About Tomorrow
22.  Sorry About Tomorrow by Hot Rod Circuit

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

One for the Kids
23.  One for the Kids by Yellowcard
The list author says:
  "Yellowcard are similar to a lot of other bands I like but they have a violin and really good song structures which elevated this CD up to the top 25. Hope they tour Europe soon now they're on a major."

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Fenix TX
24.  Fenix TX by Fenix*Tx
The list author says:
