They weren't very good, but they were very, very fun. Unfortunately, the band had a bunch of internal drama and in the long run were totally overshadowed by Brand New and Taking Back Sunday, though that doesn't make Forty Hour Train Back to Penn any less enjoyable and fun. Though they gravitated more toward the legitimate punk and hardcore scene, they have a lot in common with the bands on this list, though they're both a little more jokey and less silly. Songs with titles like "The Worst Day Ever" and "God Must Hate Me" bleed with the kind of hyperbole you'd use on your mom in high school. It was produced by Mark Hoppus and it's definitely weirder than a lot of the stuff on this list because of MCS' Moog synthesizer and their really big fetish for '80s powerpop, but for a while there they were definitely closer to pop punk than they were emo or any other genre they fell into. And then in 2004, Say Anything accidentally popped out this really inspired and interesting album full of snarling and gang vocals and interesting song structures. Jawbreaker is a controversial addition to this list. Rancid were instrumental in the establishment of the 924 Gilman scene in Berkeley that would later give the world the gift that is Green Day. Nonetheless, they were a super important part of the scene, especially because their front person is a woman... The Young And Hopeless is easily the pinnacle of boy band pop punk and "The Anthem," "Girls & Boys," and "The Young and the Hopeless" are all amazingly fun songs. It's screamy, fast, super punchy, and really clever. Lifetime were one of the first bands to embrace the genre, and when Jersey's Best Dancers came out, it opened up everyone's eyes to what the Garden State was capable of producing. Pop punk came from punk, obviously, and The Descendents basically invented the genre when they strayed from Southern California hardcore to try something a little more melodic.

As the American Pie phase of pop punk was burning off like toxic waste, a lot of bands were jockeying to be that new kind of sound. Plus, in their song "Boxcar," they talk about what's not punk, and what's more pop punk than singing about whether or not you're punk enough. This powerhouse of an album contains the massive single, "The Middle," easily the pop punk anthem of 2001. Punk in Drublic is their best known and most successful record to date, plus it has a hysterical name, which is almost as good as the moniker of their frontman: Fat Mike. While Americana contains the horrendous anthem "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)," it also has "The Kids Aren't Alright," which is as snotty and as funny as the title would suggest. And Out Come the Wolves is their best album and is very much not ska. With Paramore selling out arenas around the world, it's hard to think of the band's early days on Warped Tour. They're also in the same boat as Offspring and Less Than Jake, mixing up ska and punk into something poppy and fun, though Operation Ivy were obviously a lot rougher about it.

They dressed like Rancid and set the template for the whole Hot Topic guy-liner, plaid skinny jeans, dress-like-some-inner-city-goth-skate-jester fashion trend. Fall Out Boy are super complicated and really polarizing, but let's ignore all of that stuff and focus on the fact that Take This to Your Grave is totally great. New Jersey became a hotbed for pop punk, maybe because it's the most suburban place of all time ever. Later in the band's career they ventured into sappier territory (cough emo cough), but "Jude Law and a Semester Abroad" is complimentary to a mean girl and self-deprecating, a dangerous concoction when paired with a chorus that just doesn't quit. The band never took anything seriously — except for girlfriends and how to obtain them — which was as endearing and as playful as the San Diego trio's personalities. If you ever, for some reason, need to explain to an alien what pop punk is, just put on Enema of the State.
