Pop-punk is a genre that combines the same types of lyrics and combines it with softer and lighter music. Blink-182, Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, and Sum 41 are this genres pioneers and famous bands.
Generally, punk rock is one of the biggest categories of rock music but has never been fully considered mainstream since its creation in the 70s in the U.S. and England. 924 Gilman Street in the East Bay is a famous club where many underground bands play.

Punk Rock Was better in the 70's, 80's and early 90's. These days, It sucks.
Punk rock began in the middle 1970s with bands like The Stooges, The Ramones, and The Sex Pistols and was initially a reaction to the overproduced, lengthy, plodding corporate rock that had come to dominate the landscape. The "new wave" lasted until approximately 1982, when there was a move away from original punk to more aggressive hardcore. A second wave of punk erupted in the late 1980s and early 1990s, peaking in 1994. The genre continues to this day (as does it's musical sibling, hardcore).
While there is a philosopy closely related to punk rock ("Do It Yourself") and a visual style closely associated with punk rock (torn jeans, spikey hair, chuck taylors, etc.), please note that punk rock is a FORM OF MUSIC.
Nerd punk- No, punk is like these bands you've never heard of, like the Damned. Now they were one of the finest bands to come out of Britain in mid-seventies punk rock
"True" punk- Oh, sure, but were you there? I might not have been, but I can pretend, fuck you I'm punk rock.
