A term that many people misuse, as they confuse it with 'popular punk'. Pop punk is punk with poppy hooks, while popular punk is, as the name indicates, popular, and a very watered down version of punk.

Examples of pop punk (also known as skate punk):
NOFX
Lagwagon
Bad Religion
Pennywise
88 Fingers Louie
Anti-Flag
Rancid

Examples of popular punk:
blink 182
Yellowcard
Simple Plan
Good Charlotte
NOFX is a good pop punk band.

A more popular form of a Punkish type of Rock. It loses (most or all of) the additutde of Punk while keeping its 1 2 3 rhythm. Good Pop-Punk bands would be old Blink-182, Old Sum 41, American Hi-Fi, Zebrahead, and Motion City Soundtrack. Bad Pop-Punk bands would be new Sum 41, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

Pop-Punk was a style that was around in the 80's but made a bigger spring in the late 90's and early 21st century. Pushing away the horrible Madonna and Britney influenced techno which clouded up the 90's.

Characteristics of Pop-Punk include

A 1 2 3 Rhythm

Clean vocals

By the way to all you guys who say Punk was anti-mainstream it really wasn't. Because The Ramones and The Sex Pistols and The Clash were mainstream so how they be anti-mainstream?

Anyway more recently Pop-Punk has taken a turn to more emotional types of lyrics, usually from the point of view of a boy who is observing problems that a girl is having or problems he is having with a girl.
Some Pop-Punk is good.

Complete garbage. Your time would be much better spent listening to music from the seventies or eighties, or to ska punk.
Pop punk 13-year-old: I'm so punk rock. You posers don't understand me or my generic brand of corprate-controlled music.

Some kid: ...Dude, its poseur. And have you ever even heard of The Clash?

Pop punk 13-year-old: What was that about Green Day?

Some kids: ......*FACE*
