The Story So Far did not meet the typical qualifications for a Missed Out Music Monday but I seriously missed out for judging the band too soon. I continually saw recommendations pop up on different sites (ap.net, alternative press, AMP) and dismissed them because I was getting tired of the influx of new pop-punk bands.
I remember going to FYE when I was 13 and stumbled upon Sum 41’s album Half Hour of Power (2000). I scanned the barcode in FYE’s media player and listened to the song Makes No Difference. I was immediately sold on the album and took my money I made from chores to buy the EP.
