10 Emo & Pop-Punk Songs Turning 10 in 2016

From My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday to Boys Like Girls and Saosin, here are your teen faves turning the big 1-0!

1 / 10

Thirty Seconds To Mars, "The Kill"

Remember when Jared Leto put his acting career on pause and got super emo? That was 10 years ago! Who would've thought! And Thirty Seconds to Mars are still going at it, stronger and bigger than ever.

2 / 10

Saosin, "Voices"

Saosin might be a smaller name than a handful of the other artists on this list, but their tunes held some weight. Anthony Green of Circa Survive used to sing lead in the band, so they were definitely known for his high vocal range.

3 / 10

AFI, "Miss Murder"

If you didn't know AFI, you at least knew "Miss Murder." This jam put them on the map for a lot of people, and was a new anthem for longtime fans.

4 / 10

Boys Like Girls, "The Great Escape"

Ahhh, Boys Like Girls. "The Great Escape" sounded like it was written for a high school movie soundtrack, and it still does, really. The ultimate teen tune!

5 / 10

Panic! At The Disco, "Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off"

"Lying" was released as a single in 2006, though Panic! at the Disco's debut album dropped the year prior. It's not "I Write Sins Not Tragedies," but it's a total banger.

6 / 10

Underoath, "Writing On The Walls"

Things got pretty heavy in 2006, thanks in part to Christian rockers Underoath.

7 / 10

Senses Fail, "Can't Be Saved"

It's not 2006 emo without a song about death and other bleak stuff. Thanks, Senses Fail!

8 / 10

The Academy Is..., "The Phrase That Pays"

Will Beckett was the babe to end all babes, right? This The Academy Is... banger still holds up.

9 / 10

Taking Back Sunday, "MakeDamnSure"

Hell hath no fury like an emo man scorned. This Taking Back Sunday jam is one of their biggest singles ever, and with good reason: It has all of the appeal of a mainstream rock track while resonating with pop-punk kids. The best of both worlds!

10 / 10

My Chemical Romance, "Famous Last Words"

Oh, My Chemical Romance, why did you have to leave us? In 2006 the Jersey boys gave us The Black Parade, perhaps their most dynamic record. On it was "Famous Last Words," a giant track that will absolutely make you cry.
