Hey, my band is playing a battle of the bands and we want to do just 1 cover
we wanted a pop punk song that's fairly popular/mainstream.
the Battle is at a church and a lot of the audience isn't deep into pop punk, so we're looking for a song that has gotten a fair amount of radio airplay in the 90's, 00's, or in the last couple of years, like Sugar We're Going Down or All The Small Things

We're a 4 piece band, 2 singers, 2 guitarists, bass player and drummer

Maybe some Sum-41 or Blink-182.

Sume-41 probably Fat Lip or In Too Deep.

For Blink-182 maybe All The Small Things or Rock Show or First Date.

You and I both know he didn't mean real pop punk.

I know.

Alright, srsly tho (since THE QUEERS might be too CONTROVERSIAL and EDGY for church), if you're not gonna cover MTX, why play at all?

Go one better and take a well known song and turn it into a pop-punk style song, instead of being a parrot band like most other young bands seem to be. One of my old bands used to do a pop punk style cover of Blondie's 'Maria,' which went down really well.

That way, you're hitting the audience with something they aren't expecting, but can actually relate to.

This. It's not gunna be that hard. Pop punk is easy. Powerchords muted through the verse with the 4 + not muted. Straight 8th's rhythm through the chorus with a lead melody that's there for the sake of it and then an octave chord solo. Seems to be how a lot of pop punk song are.

Really anything by Green Day, Sum 41, Blink182, or The Offspring.

I Saw Water by Tiger's Jaw is super easy, and the most fun song to play live.

Also Grand Theft Autumn, Saturday (if you have a decent singer), Champagne For My Real Friends (Real Pain For My Sham Friends), or Of All The Gin Joints by Fall Out Boy.

Washington Square Park, Hey Thanks, or Don't Let Me Cave In by The Wonder Years

Or some Joyce Manor if you're cool. Ashtray Petting Zoo is pretty fun.

Do this, but be sure to dedicate the song to your drummer's testicles.
