What all punk bands who do not want to end their career will eventually evolve into. It is slower and slightly softer than punk but still keeps the word " punk " in the name of the genre for some reason. Most of the songs in recent Green Day and Blink 182 albums are pop-punk.
This is an unfortunate failure that truly has killed punk.

Ok Lets keep this simple. I bet many of you people are confuse. Pop-punk is just punk but in a softer and more way of understanding what the lyrics is. Most of the time it doesnt contain any political lyric or agression. Its mostly based on love. Obiously the music is a lot different from actual punk. 3 strings guitar for punk. Vocalist goes way fast u may not even understand it. While pop punk is basically pop with a little influence of punk. Most pop-punk bands sell out to the media or ***sound poppy*** because many people like the tune..........I could understand if u like it because its easier to understand. Punk is still more intelligent more and more conterversial. Awesome lyrics knowing whats going on in today's society. Usually kids who tend to like pop-punk are more trendy and fashinable with patches everywhere on some fabric. No you dont need to be wearing different type of clothing in order to be what you are.
Punk- The Partisans, Global Threat, GBH, The Unseen, Anti Flag, Black Flag,Rancid(ska-punk), Operation Ivy(same as Rancid)e.t.c.

Pop-Punk- Blink 182, Good Charlotte, The Used, New Found Glory, Sum 41, Pennywise, The Offspring (now) e.t.c

1.)Punk as fashion.

2.)A hollow version of the Punk Rock movement that began in the 80s.
i.e. wearing the clothes or singing a vague version of the music without actually understanding, or living it.

3.)A musical genre including the main musical groove to Punk Rock but containing lyrical content typical of a generic Pop song, esp. love songs.

Also called "ponk"
Spiked hair becoming mainstream.

Being different becoming so cool that being different is being the same.

Contrary to popular belief, pop-punk is not neccesarily shit like Good Charlotte. It is actually a more medolic punk. Think The Descendants, Bouncing Souls, Screeching Weasels, yes, even The Ramones.

Although, someone using the word is probabbly referring to shit bands like Good Charlotte, Newfoundglory and Brand New.

*Also not to be confused with the similiar yet SLIGHTLY less bad "skate-punk" (nofx, goldfinger, rancid)
Dude 1: "Hey man, have you heard the new Descendants? It's fuckin' sweet!"

A very good music genre or subgenre. Instrumentals sound like a watered down punk, vocals sound somewhat like pop. People who listen to this do NOT shop at Hot Topic as assumed by many. People who listen who listen to this dress either white ghetto, preppy, sporty, or just jeans and a shirt. Sadly the famous Pop Punkers try to look punk :(

This music is not listened to by weird, dressed in all black, rejected, suicidal FREAKS. Although those freaks often tend to make fun of and bash Pop-Punk, all I have to say to them is get a life and stop slitting your wrists. The only reason Pop-Punkers "sellout" to MTV is because they arent afraid to show their faces on mtv, because unlike real punks they are not freaks.
Examples of really awesome Pop-Punk bands: blink-182, Sum 41

pretty good Pop-Punk bands: yellowcard, simple plan, good charlotte, new found glory

btw Millencolin (skatepunk) and Green Day (punk) and offspring (punk) are really awesome too.

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.
