Top definition
A subgenre in which vocals are often sung in a happy tune instead of yelling. The melody is very poppy and less punk . It is sometimes confused with Pop-Punk, but happy punk has more of a pop influence than a punk one.

Bands like:

All Time Low
The Wonder Years
Motion City Soundtrack
New Found Glory
Person 1: OMG! All Time Low is the best Pop-Punk band ever!!
Person 2: They're Happy Punk.

Person 1: Motion City Soundtrack is fake pop-punk.
Person 2 : Dude they're not Pop-Punk, they're Happy Punk.
