It’s Top 3 Video time! The best of the Top 3 videos for May 14, 2016!

First up is a punk band from Stoke-on-Trent in England. “What’s a ‘Stoke-on-Trent’?” you say? Well, according to Wikipedia, it’s a city in Staffordshire, England with an area of 36 square miles.

At #1 this week is a band from Dundee, Scotland that features five members who will enjoy their debut release in Japan on May 18, 2016.
