where the hell do you get b minor and b major from?

It's going to be D major for a poppy punk feel, but D minor will work and sound good despite not being technically correct.

Hooray for parallel minor

What's pop punk?

Last time I checked, punk was a movement against pop, musically as well as socially.

Name some artists you like, cause this is vague.


It's either popular or anti popular.

Both are frequently treated as genres rather than movements. For an example of pop-punk, see Greenday.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Pop/punk takes the poppy-ness and happyness of pop, with the rawness and heavyness of punk.

Green Day, as stated, is pop/punk... but better bands would be New Found Glory, Four Year Strong (I think) and old A Day to Remember.

To the TS: You would use D Major or D minor, though I would personally stick to D Major as the chords you have are the I-V-IV of D Major.

The genre pop punk is disputed, though lots of people say from todays point of view even The Ramones were a pop punk band. I think most people agree that one of the first pop punk bands was The Buzzcocks.
Todays pop punk are e.g. The Descendents or Screeching Weasel

As the first poster said I´d use a D major scale, i doubt anyone will care if you use a mixolydian or ionian.

The B minor scales fits since D major is the parallel major scale to B minor. You have to think which finger setting you prefer, but I think it also changes the character......

What kinds of chords are you playing btw.? Powerchords or barre?

since when you use powerchords you could use any scale in D, Am, Bm, Gm.....

You CANNOT "play the relative minor or major".
