The evolution of punk music '10s edition

In the final installment of Maris Jones' series Evolution of Punk, Maris tackles the terrible 2010s. First up on the altar of cultural parody: competition reality shows like Project Runway and the short-lived Bravo series Work of Art. In Maris' fantasy competition Water Wars, the hipster world's most renowned "aqueticians" compete for the right to... well, what it is they're actually competing for isn't exactly clear. But one thing's for sure: the Tim Gunn-esque host is an exacting water judge.

From there, Maris and Jacob Kornwolf launch into their impersonations, which encompass the best that this decade's pop-punk bands have to offer: 3Oh!3, Panic!
