I've seen a lot of amps that can do pop punk easily, like

Marshall JCM2000 DSL401 - 40 watts
Marshall JCM900 - 50 watts
Traynor YCV50 Blue - 50 watts

but what about lower wattage amps? I mean, isn't even 15 watts tube too much for bedroom volumes?

U can play ANY music with any sized watt amp, its not like a low watt amp is going to make ur hand seize now is it,

the reason why bands use bigger watt amps is so they can here themselves jamming/ clarity / and size matters lol

Well when you're playing a gig you can always mic it, and there's not really a reason to practice at volumes that would require a large rig...so a 15W tube should do just fine.
Nope, no sig here.

Okay, the 2 replies make it clear that no one actually read the question. I was asking for low wattage amps that can do pop punk... like for metal peavey valveking royal 8, 8 watts. classic rock epiphone valve junior, 5 watts but what about pop punk? All the amps that can do pop punk are way too huge.

No they're not.
Epi valve junior can do pop punk.
Pop punk is just an overdriven tube sound.
Any tube amp can play pop-punk.

Not realy, there are a lot of amps that can't if they don't have the right voicing.

True.
But in general, you can get that sound from any amp. You could use a few pedals too, so amps not voiced [for that] can be used for pop-punk.

Yeah, i actually thought maybe an epiphone valve junior with a distortion pedal, but I've heard a lot of distortion pedals are a bit crap. Do you know any decent ones to get a pop punk sort of sound?

Get on overdrive pedal, and adjust the overdrive's gain knob to taste.
There's so many OD pedals, but an Ibanez Tubescreamer is recommended a lot.
