11 Iconic Early 2000s Bands That Need To Make A Comeback ASAP

There is no shortage of reasons that the early 2000s were happier, simpler years for us all. From the amazing television shows we grew up with to the ridiculous films that came out, the early 2000s were basically just a weird extension of the 90s.

Perhaps the greatest part of the early 2000s was the music scene. And yes, those were the years when it was still cool to wear studded belts and tease your hair. Who didn't want to resemble Gerard Way or Pete Wentz?

Unfortunately, many of the bands that made those years so enjoyable have stopped making music. And while we still have talent like Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco to keep us sane, we really miss them.

Here are 11 of the bands that need to start up again... please?

The All-American Rejects

Giphy

The All-American Rejects used to be right up there with Taking Back Sunday and Fall Out Boy, at least in terms of popularity. They played major venues, wowing us all with hits like "Dirty Little Secret" and "My Paper Heart."

Sadly, as we got older, their presence in the music scene began to fade. Their last album was released in 2008, but we're holding out hope that they'll surprise us with a new one one of these days.

Cute Is What We Aim For

Giphy

If you didn't love Cute Is What We Aim For, you just weren't a true pop-punk kid. We need more songs like "The Curse of Curves" and "Newport Living" in our lives.

Boys Like Girls

The summer "The Great Escape" made it onto the radio, everyone quickly became obsessed with Boys Like Girls. And their first album was total fire. They brought summer days and nights to life with their music, and that said, we aren't sure what happened to them after that.

They did eventually release a second record, but their popularity was waning at that point. And then, sadly, they disappeared.

The Academy Is...

When this band announced they'd be breaking up, all of us wanted to jump in and tell them to "slow down." Sadly, even their own lyrics wouldn't have stopped the inevitable.

And though lead singer William Beckett tried out a solo career for a while, it just wasn't the same as listening to The Academy Is...

Jack's Mannequin

Giphy

My fellow "One Tree Hill" fans will be nodding along to this one. Jack's Mannequin stole our hearts with songs like "The Mixed Tape" and "Dark Blue," and we were heartbroken when they ended things in 2016.

Forever the Sickest Kids

Forever the Sickest Kids was every pop-punk fan's dream band. No one else's sound quite resembled theirs, and they had a small enough fanbase that concerts felt intimate and personal.

Unfortunately, they stopped releasing songs like "She's A Lady" and "Hey Brittany." And then they just stopped creating music all together. Our scene-kid hearts will just never be the same.

Cobra Starship

Giphy

Remember these guys? They were around way before their hit, "Good Girls Go Bad," came out. In fact, they frequently used to open for bands like Fall Out Boy, and they even wrote a song for the movie "Snakes on a Plane."

After they got really big, they just sort of faded away. Let's bring them back into the spotlight, please.

Escape the Fate

Giphy

Though Escape the Fate is still technically an active band, it's no longer the one we grew up listening to. Between all of the new lead singers, record label changes and band drama, it's impossible for them to even play their old songs anymore.

Honestly, if you do miss Escape the Fate, you're better off just listening to Falling in Reverse.

Metro Station

But seriously, how are we supposed to "shake it" without Metro Station leading the way? They might have only had a few popular hits, but those songs sure got us dancing.

Yellowcard

Giphy

Yellowcard might have only ended their music career last year, but we miss them already. We just can't help but feeling that "if we could find them now, things would get better."

My Chemical Romance

Giphy

This one might never happen, but that doesn't mean we'll ever accept it. We need My Chemical Romance back in the world, and until they are, we won't be OK (we promise).

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

19
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.

By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?
