Nothing Gold Can Stay, the 1999 debut by New Found Glory, marked a turning point in emo. Whereas bands like The Promise Ring and The Get Up Kids brought bright, friendly pop tones to the genre, Nothing Gold played to the teenybopper crowd. In light of what emo has become in the past decade, though, New Found Glory sounds almost tasteful; the Florida-born band still plays heavy and, at times, even intricate pop-punk packed with earnest sing-alongs. In 2009, NFG released Not Without A Fight, a return to its exuberant Warped Tour-friendly sound; the band is currently touring behind its new follow-up, Radiosurgery.
