Pussy sellout punk imitators, who stole half the clothing style and made crappy music and called it "punk". Nothing but whiny wannabe hypocrite weaklings, most of which with no music talent. See poser.
Pop-punk such as Good Charlotte, Blink 182, Avril Lavigne, and Sum41, all suck very much.

The latest "craze" in music (mTV) after the decline of boy bands, pop punk is characterized by young guys who are incapable of decent vocals, play fast but weak guitars, fast but repetitive drums, and jumping around like a bunch of retards when the bass kicks in. Lyrics usually involve issues popular amongst the teenage community such as girl problems, depression, and how they don't "fit in" because they are "non-conformists" despite the fact they are listening to a form of pop music. Occassionally, they will attempt to sing about political issues but tend to avoid this, as it makes them appear idiotic due to the fact that their opinions are very uneducated.

A pop punk fan will wear predominantly black clothing, that is either way too baggy or way too tight. Pop punkers think it is cool to abstain from bathing or using deoderant, likely because they do not wish to conform by giving "corrupt corporations" such as Ivory and Gillette their money. Accessories include patches, studded bracelets and buttons with creative slogans on them reading, "You laugh because I'm different, I laugh because you're all the same" or "Rap Sucks", despite the fact that the lead singer of Good Charlotte thinks he is black. Pop punkers will sometimes attempt to learn guitar or bass, give up once they have learned the beginning of a Ramones song, and tell people that they are experts and "can play better than Slipknot". Usually hang out in groups, so they are able to not conform together.

Pop punk bands include such acts as Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, Avril Lavigne, Sum41, New Found Glory, and Blink-182 (who is the only one of the above with any talent, personality and innovation, but they have a lot of idiot teeny-bopper fans as described above, and also inspired a lot of bad bands that tried pitifully to copy them). It can sometimes be very difficult to tell one from the other because of their generally whiny vocals and very generic riffs.
We can expect the death of pop punk by 2006...

DOESN'T EXIST!!!! Punk is a form of music AGAINST mainstream music. Its a paradox. Only MTV poseurs think this is real punk.
MTV Poseur: FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOD CHARLOTTE IS FUCKING PUNK!!!!!!!

Me: No, they are pop music. Have you even heard of real punk bands? Like Black Flag, Minor Threat, Aus-rotten, Filth, The Meat Puppets, Napalm Death, or Amebix?

MTV Posuer: LIKE FUCK YOU LOSER! YOU LISTEN TO SHITTY BANDS WHO ARE PUSSY PUNK!!!! YOU DIDN'T EVEN MENTION SIMPLE PLAN AND THE BEST PUNK ROCKER EVER, AVRIL LAVIGNE!!!!

Me: You are a sad little fool, you believe pop punk is real and now I must euthanize you.

A Pretty good type of music that most "Real" punks look down upon just because it doesent live up to Punks standards. And yes, I agree with them. Most pop punk is a pile of shit. But there is alot of really good Pop Punk out there that is Loud, fast, fun and rebelious. But it is basicly just a more melodic and catchier type of punk rock.
Good Pop Punk: Descendents, NOFX, (old) Green Day, Lagwagon, Screeching Weasal, (Old) Blink 182, Ramones, The Offspring, (Old) Mxpx, Rancid, The Buzzcocks, The Sidekicks, etc

Bull Shit Pop punk: Simple Plan, Paramore, Fall out boy, We the Kings, Boys like Girls, (New) Blink 182, New found glory, good charlotte, Avril Lavigne, Sum 41, etc

1. A term used to describe the recent trend after the fall out success of boy bands and glamour rap. Pop punk contains no punk quality other than untalented musicians.

2. Soccer Mom approved punk that is trendy, okay to like, and accessable at the nearest mall.

3. A hypocritical commercial gimmick that wont last. Thankfully.
Pop punk derives from histrionic teenagers who would commit suicide because their rich parents bought them a car with standard interior as opposed to leather.

1)An oxymoronic term in the fact that punk is the essence of individuality and seperation from society, whereas pop is the celebration of society's standards of fashion and higherarchy.
2)A term often applied to alternative or "bubble gum" rock bands that play repetitive riffs and wear items like studded belts and wristbands.
