So, I was listening to my old Blink-182 albums earlier, as well as some Green Day, a bit of MxPX and stuff like that and I realised...theres not a lot of stuff like that anymore.

I mean, yes theres pop punk but a lot of music has grown in many ways, joining with other forms of instruments as well as genres. Bands use screams, some use synths...and so on... but how many bands are there around that are just plain-old pop punk.

If so, please share, cos im in the mood to listen.

Share!

whoa......you ARE a mod! well, i would say that a lot of millencolin's stuff is pop-punk, as well as goldfinger, if you didn't go "mleh" and call them both some form of ska. i think they're pretty pop-punk.

EDIT: jon, i just realized. my title was reset.....so i WAS banned for a little while!

I think it died when one of the most pop-punk bands EVER released one of the most un-pop-punk albums ever (blink-182 - ST)

Hopefully we might see a resurgence when Rancid release their new CD [/wishfullthinking]

i guess you can't help that music is evolving. but there will always be some form of the music that WE ONCE LOVED SO MUCH.

i hate most of the new pop punk **** though. this is one of the ones i like

The first song screamed "Nothing Gold Can Stay" era New Found Glory...THANK YOU




That was so kickass it's like Jordan with some I dunno John Nolan-esque back up singer it just makes me all warm inside to listen to it...

Yeah, i was feeling like i needed a new poppunk band to listen too yesterday. And luckily (i can never find new good poppunk) I found The space pimps. They are my new poppunk fix for the time being.

EDIT: They are Generic in all the best ways. Teenage Poppunk rules...

Well...pop-punk...I'll just make a list. Some of these bands are not very well known. Also, please note that some of these bands are no longer considered pop-punk. Putting bands into just the "pop-punk" genre is getting harder these days, due to the heavy emo influence, with bands like Brand New, etc. Well, I hope this helps you out.

1. Trendy
2. Mxpx
3. Blink 182
4. Guttermouth
5. The Crippling Effect ( more skate-punk though)
6. Nofx (some of it)
7. Daly's Gone Wrong ( somewhat ska/hardcore)
8. Pride of Ownership (old stuff)
10. Saves the Day (OLD STUFF)
12. Diluted Society (sorta)
13. Amber Pacific ( though a bit emo)
14. Starstruck
15. Threefoot
16. One Last Time
17. Fall Out Boy (OLD STUFF FROM "take this to your grave")
18. Sum 41 ( OLD, as in "Fat Lip," "In too Deep," etc)
19. Gameface ( old stuff from "Always On," but kinda emo too)
20. Punchline
21. The Ataris (though some call them Alternative rock)
22. Goldfinger (though some call them ska, some poppy songs)
23. Simple Plan
24. Jimmy Eat World (somewhat alternative rock, though)
25. Green Day ( especially "Dookie")
26. Less Than Jake (with some ska influence though)
27. Side Walk Slam
28. Fenix TX (old stuff)
29. Homegrown
30. Useless ID (Kind of)

That's what I think happened to lots of pop-punk bands, I consider Brand New and Taking Back Sunday's first albums to be pop-punk and then they moved on to the more emo scene and now they continue to evolve, Brand New in a more indie direction and Taking Back Sunday as more modern rock. And of course there's the band that got me hooked on pop-punk, Sum 41 who have definitely gotten a more metal sound. Those that never moved on just stopped basically, Blink 182 split up, New Found Glory hasn't put anything out for a while. Although I suppose Bowling For Soup would probably answer the threadstarter's question is the most mainstream pop-punk band out there right now. Although I just don't really now how to label Green Day I wouldn't call American Idiot pop-punk though I just can't label them but then again **** labels.
