as people have already pointed out, this can't really exist because it's an oxymoron, although there are some bands that have been labelled as pop punk.
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.

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.

Good Charlotte, Blink 182, Simple Plan -ARE NOT POP PUNK.
First you have to be punk in order to become a pop punk band.

Heres some Pop Punk bands:
Enemy You
Screeching Weasel (there bark like a dog album)
Teen Idols
Travoltas
Limp

Do not listen to the crap on MTV.
Pop + Punk = Enemy You
Pop + Crap = Good Charlotte

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.

Commercialized rock music labeled as "punk". Idiot consumers eat it up.
"Punk isn't dead, it's just been strangeled."

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
