Fan #2: "Yeah man, let's go skate around outside the venue and then pogo to some sweet tunes!"
People who listen to pop-punk normally know that they themselves and the bands they listen to are not punk, they just listen to the music because they like it (or they listened to real punk and didn't like it too much). Most actually respect punk rock bands, just choose not to listen to them. The same probably goes for the band.
The Offspring, Sum 41 (not the early Sum 41), Green Day, Blink-182 (early).
Stuff that is sadly in the same category: Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, New Found Glory.
a real pop punk band is the Buzzcocks.
all the other modern day bands like good charlotte and sum41 and avril lavigne are shite. get over it.
girl2: ever heard of the buzzcocks?

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.
