Not considered to be Punk music. Punk died, but lives on in music that claims only to be rock ‘n’ roll plain and simple and straight from the garage. Punk exists now only in spirit and is not something you can purchase at Hot Topic.
Among Christian lore there is supposed to be a Christ, and then in various sects of Christianity there is the Anti-Christ. Well in this case…
Punk = Christ
Pop-Punk = Anti-Christ
Oh, and Rancid is not Punk just because Tim Armstrong had a Mohawk.
I blame the Descendants for the lame format later to be established as the current template for pop-punk artists’ success.
the biggest oxymoron of the 21st century
Pop-punk? But I thoug punk was supposed to be anti-mainstream?
A genre of music that is a softer form of Punk. A mainstream bastardization of punk. An oxy-moron of the genre it claims influence from.
Pop-Punk is a damning genre to the punk culture.
Pop punk music is usually more melodic and cleaner-sounding than the original punk rock music. Bands such as New Found Glory, Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Yellowcard, Simple Plan and Fall Out Boy have refined pop punk into a form which stresses strong melody and varied rhythms. Lyrics would prety much be the same the only difference would be in the style of singing and also the music. PUNK rockers would tend to sing at a much fatster pace whereas POP-PUNK rockers are melodic and would tend to be slow and much more clearer.
***** One more very important thing, please DONOT listen to all these people in here trying to tell what Pop-Punk genre is all about as most of them donot know shyt about PUNK. They consider Bad Religion & NOFX Pop-Punk. I mean they are the Godfathers of hardcore PUNK ROCK and even a deaf person can tell they are most certainly not POP-PUNK. I had a good laugh when these so called 'smart people' tried to categorize NOFX and Bad Religion into Pop-Punk. Go listen to them first and then decide for yourself.
Bands like New Found Glory, Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Yellowcard, Simple Plan and Fall Out Boy are POP-PUNK.
Bands like NOFX, Bad Religion, Sex Pistols, The Clash, Sham69 and Rancid are all PUNK.
Well, "pop-punk", is a type of music that is dying right now, this is because there are many bands such as "son on dork" and mcfly who are trying to push their way into this discription. It is a catchy type of generic rock which produces huge record sales, so is very lucrtive to endorse. Usually three or four band memebers, two on vocals. Target audience 10 - 25 year olds. Uses simple but very effective riffs and chord combos. Feel good music. Summer music. from a broad prospective it can offend people who like slightly heavier music. this genre was created when punk rock was split into many different and new catagories in the late 90's. Usually the listeners and members of bands use toilet humer and sex jokes, this can be very funny at times, but now in 2006 has been milked and milked. Although many will be sad to see pop-punk bands starrt to disapear, it is a inevitable fact. soza guys.
Written bye Sam.

it's a term used to name the music style of bands like Green Day, Blink 182, Good Charlotte, or Simple Plan.
This bands were influenced by the skatepunk bands like Bad Religion, Nofx, Pennywise, etc. They made the songs catchier so it would become more listenable to the mainstream audience therefore more popular. That's where the name pop-punk comes from.
Being mainstream music has caused the rejection of this music by other punkrockers who are against the mainstream and corporate music.
Nowadays pop-punk is influating other bands to create new styles of music like rock-pop or new hardcore-pop better known to the audience as emo music
Green Day, Blink 182, Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan are the best examples of pop-punk
A style of rock characterized by a fast tempo, melodic vocals, and "juvenile" subject matter (although some later pop punk delves into deeper lyrical topics). The style was formed in the late 80's when bands began combining an early punk guitar style and lyrics with cleaner vocals, two and three part harmonies, and prominent hooks. This style is much more melodic, but still high energy and sometimes moshable. Depending on the subgenre, bands can exhibit varying degrees of hardcore punk, emo, and post-hardcore influences as well. Pop punk bands such as Green Day and Blink-182 went on to develop more alternative influenced sounds with their later albums, while bands like All Time Low nearly abandoned the punk aspect of the music, instead going for a more pop-based, radio-friendly sound.
Fan #1: "Hey, did you hear about that pop-punk show going on tonight?"
Fan #2: "Yeah man, let's go skate around outside the venue and then pogo to some sweet tunes!"
A punk subgenre, originally introduced in the 1970s, but obtained worldwide commercial success in 1990s and early 2000s, thanks mainly to Green Day, Blink-182, Rancid, and The Offspring.
Most definitions of pop-punk on this site put down several bands, like Simple Plan.
What Pop-punk really is is the fast, loud guitars of punk rock, but with catchy, usually light, melodies. Lyrics aren't meant to be political or angry.
Today's mainstream pop-punk is extremely different from that of the 90s, sounding more like emo, with moody, one-hit bands in hollister sweaters wearing a backwards hat.
The chart-topping bands of 2004 aren't recieving as much attention as before.
