New Jersey pop-punk band Sucker Punch recently dropped their most recent single, "Worst Case Ontario." Although the band originated as a solo project, the band now consists of six members with ties to the New Jersey and Philly DIY scenes. With musical influences such as The Story So Far, A Day To Remember, New Found Glory, and early Fall Out Boy, they create a style that is reminiscent of both 2000s emo and early 2010s pop-punk, as well as drawing in influence from the current, modern wave of emo and pop-punk. Their lyricism heavily focuses on personal issues, while their music holds up the lyrics with upbeat riffs and melodies.

The song begins with a very upbeat drum fill before delving into the introduction with pop-punk riffs. The energy slowly builds through the chorus and the following verses. It begins to slow down in the middle of the song, before hitting a climax with the lyric, "This small town will never be the same / Devil’s Kettle will become my grave." With screamed backing vocals and gritty leads, the song hits a heavy climax before slightly slowing once more at the end of the song. "Worst Case Ontario" is an upbeat pop-punk anthem that brings in energy as soon as it starts, and it does not let off.
