n. Music which is pesudo-punk. It's got the loud guitars, it's got just enough of the "I'm angry" vibe to still be interesting to today's youth. But it's way too polished and lacks the substance of true punk.

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.

so far only one person has the definition right here. pop punk, which shall now and forever be called Happemo, is just catchy fun sounding music that still has talent and a message.
check out the bands in the example. they are true Happemo bands.
Dillinger Four, Bigwig, Skirtbox, Amazombies, and Bombshell Rocks are all examples of true Happemo

Shit music that is being labeled "punk" when its just as hard and fast as country. A true pop punk band is The Buzzcocks. Most of the brainwashed youth that listen to this "pop punk" shit started out at hot topic one day looking to fit in. So they bought some random shirts of random bands that they have never heard of for outrageous prices, went home, felt all "punk", went on lime wire, and stole worthless music from the bands on there shitty shirts. Then from there these teeny boppers went around sharing their findings to other clueless people, and the cycle goes on and on. Thank you very much hot topic and mtv for ruining what once was an ok genre.
"OMLFG!!!Oh My Like Fucking (non-existant)God!!! Look at this rad Gc shirt. OMLFG joel is like so totally hot. He is so punk wih his hair. I wonder is he gets it done at great clips?... Like i think i am going to buy every fucking good charlotte item there is in this fuckong store, put it on my once preppy slut body, and be PUNK.. not to mention an individual!!!

Pop punk has been ruined by all american rejects, all time low, bowling for soup and Averil whatserface, Those bands dont even derve CAPS but Blink 182, Green Day, Box Car Racer, Rise Against, Jimmy Eat World, SR-71 and i guess the newer hawthorne heights are really good bands.
