It is all too confusing. Just listen to some Maiden.
Yellow Card is a good too, and MXPX, Chixdiggit, Fenix TX.... fuck these lists of bands are taking me back big time haha.
A lot of bands that were decent pop punk descended into just being shitty light rock middle age mom music, like Simple Plan's first album was good, everything else is garbage.
Also skate punk should be acceptable to list... because unless you're a huge piece of trash you aren't going to like pop punk but then not like skate punk... it's the natural better evolution of the music.
Didn't Jimmy Eat World spend basically their whole careers trying not to be called emo?
I don't think that Jimmy Eat World has a single ounce of 'punk' anything in their music. They have always been a solid pop-rock act, with the scales tipping toward the rock side of things.
Helllll if I know. I've seen them grouped with that genre before. It labels them as partly that on Wikipedia (lol). But yeah, I was skeptical. I just couldn't think of any more pure choices that I ever liked that hadn't been mentioned.
For the record, the skate punk mentions have been
Brand New's first album Your Favorite Weapon
I always liked Saves the Day too
...not sure if joke was too cryptic or not funny enough.
My boys in We Were Sharks just dropped their new album
They used to actually be an emo/pop punk band before the 2000s IMO
One band I would recommend is Heartsounds which is Ben and Laura from Light This City. Their first album "Until We Surrender" is a great album in the vein of Strung Out. I also like my pop punk with breakdowns too (New Found Glory, ADTR, Set Your Goals, old FOB, etc.).
didn't know you were on here
Usually just lurking from the shadows
That's been me for the last few years. I haven't owned a 7 in years and listen to way more post-whatever etc. than say trivium or cannibal corpse so I just pop in to preach 5150's, JCM800's, clean amps with dirt pedals and less is more .
I always forget about those earlier albums! So weird, it seems like they just magically appeared with Bleed American and blew everyone away.
I know a lot of those bands were not pop-punk, but they have slower songs that are great.
You didn't link ruiner or mute print so you lost a couple of marks from me .
I saw A Wilhelm Scream open for Protest the Hero. It was really embarrassing that they came on after Cyclamen lmao
Why was that embarassing?
Signed, the opener of that show.
I thought Cyclamen crushed. Also the vibe from Cyclamen and PtH was really quite different than A Wilhelm Scream. Seemed like the band got caught in a sandwich. The crowd felt awkward in comparison too. I saw Cyclamen as the only opener for Dillinger last year as well and the transition felt way smoother.
