    Serj Tankian’s solo album may not have been “pop punk” but it has all the vibes and catchy ness I associate with the genre. Pop-metal? Throwing it in there as a big fan of prapaghandi and a Wilhelm scream.

    The Rasmus may deserve a mention look up “dead letters”.

    Well a wilhelm scream is not the same genre. That said, A wilhelm scream is pretty technical. The flatliners and us were the odd ones out in terms of technical proficiency that night. I was sidestage for cyclamen and since they're DI to FOH (fairly sure) it was mostly just watching their vocalist.

    You want a weird transition though? Protest on tour with abandon all ships.

    I seem like the only actual pop punk listener in this forum, so I could give you some good recommendations worth getting into since I've listened to those bands OP listed a lot.

    Blink-182's entire discography is worth getting into, they are very much the band that inspired every pop punk band ever since they came.

    All Time Low also has some good modern pop punk albums (I'd avoid Dirty Work, Future Hearts, and Last Young Renegade though since they lean too close to mainstream pop on those albums).

    Fall Out Boy's albums too, but just their pre-2013 material because they started to suck hard ever since then.

    Basically everything that was ever released on Drive-Thru Records is essential pop punk. The most popular band who were signed to them was New Found Glory, who have stayed true to the genre for 20 years.

    Some popular 2010's bands you might like:
    • Neck Deep
    • The Story So Far
    • Man Overboard
    • State Champs
    • Waterparks (they lean towards the pop side a lot but they're very catchy)
    • Knuckle Puck
    • Real Friends

    For my current obsession in the genre, I've been listening to a lot of Ellegarden lately. They're a Japanese band but most of their songs are in English.



    They've been on hiatus since 2008, but their lead singer has a new band that sounds similar called MONOEYES, who were formed three years ago.

    This is the strangest thread.

    FWIW, I’m a huge pop punk fan, too. I haven’t seen Reel Big Fish (maybe too ska?) or Bowling for Soup mentioned yet. And The Offspring, of course. Rancid isn’t all that poppy, but sure are fun to listen to.

    I feel like pure noise has a lot of pop punk bands.

    Yes, but it’s ska punk, and upbeat, AND on my pop punk playlist. Therefore I’m right. Plus, you’re not the boss of me.

    Probably doesn't count as pop-punk, but I feel like the scene owes a bit to the sing-songy stylings of bands like Bad Religion and NoFX. I first heard Bad Religion a little before the Green Day/Offspring thing made pop-punk the force it is today, and thought they were the oddest band I'd heard; they play fast with distortion, but sing like they're in a barbershop quartet!

    I'm 26 and hated this kind of music when it was popular, but now that I'm older I find that I appreciate it. It reminds me a lot of the summertime. I still don't really "get" the more popular bands (Sum, Blink, etc). Here are some representative picks of my favorite "Vans Warped Tour '05"-type music (although some of what I'm linking here is more easycore/hardcore/emo/mathy I think it has a similar aesthetic):

    ... some more technical stuff:

    (this is a remastered version. If you like then find their Bandcamp page and buy the original; it sounds much better IMHO)

    They have metal sections in their mashup songs too, are they a metal band?

    Reel big fish are a ska band. That they effectively add other genres to some of their songs increases their potential fanbase and gives listeners a cool surprise. I own two albums, I had my rbf phase, they are a ska band. A really awesome ska band.

    I understand what you are saying, but I think it was about 20 years at my 9th lunch room table where me and my friends decided that labeling bands with a single genre type really lost it's appeal.

    In punk music the rules are loose.

    Even though they have a few melodic hardcore touches at times, Early Four Year Strong (first two albums) and Set Your Goals are worth checking out
