The Top TenXW

1Green Day

Green Day was the first band post 9/11 to speak their minds about the American government with American Idiot, not only was it an amazing politically charged super album but an awesome rock opera turned award winning musical, not to mention it was a pretty kick ass comeback

green day brought punk back from the dead, without them there would be no blink or sum 41, fob and mcr so american idiot best pop punk song of 2000's deffo!

Blink 182 have been around since 1992... I don't think American Idiot paved the way for Blink 182...

Of course they are number one they started and has moved music to another level even beyond rock they are awesome but blink 182 is a close close second

I'm sad to see only a real Punk band in this list: you.

2Blink-182

I can't believe it! If it weren't for blink there would no Fall Out Boy, New Found Glory, All Time Low, Paramore...i could go on forever baby! Needless to say, blink was the band that cemented Pop-punk as one of the best Genres Of Rock!

Blink-182 brought true pop punk into the maintstream, and showed everyone what being young and reckless is all about. They have a song for any emotion you could ever relate to or for any situation in life. They truly are musical masterminds.

Blink is one of the best pop punk bands and they should be number 1. I can't never get bored to listening to their music

3Fall Out Boy

I definitely like this list more than the other one, most of the bands that deserve to be higher up are, like good charlotte, panic! At the disco, bowling for soup... But get All Time Low off here, they're too new...

It's timeless. Who doesn't love Dance Dance or Sugar We're Going Down? Even though Save Rock and Roll was way off far of Take This To Your Grave, they are still one of the best bands ever

Fall out boy are absolutly awesome, there voices are so good they are all so damn hot and there songs are so flawless. Love them so much ; )...

4Paramore

They're just amazing I have like all of their songs! They're a great band and hayley is the best singer. Beautiful, strong and rock star yeah! Her pronounciation is so cute sometimes I smile at myself listening to her lol. Awesome guitar too. Great harmony.

5My Chemical Romance

My Chemical Romance is the Best Band Ever! Their lyrics are so deep and meaningful, and all the tracks are amazing! I wish they had never broken up since they are an amazing band. Love you guys!

This band is great. Gerard is sassy as hell and that's led live shows even better. The fact that paramore is ranked higher is a slap in the face. Fact is they're horrible compared to My Chemical Romance.

Definitely topping the other bands. My Chemical Romance was incredible, and they had more MEANING to their songs.

They are better then any band in history!

6The Offspring

THANK YOU! You're gonna go far, Come out and play, Self-Esteem and The kids aren't alright are all great songs! Why isn't this at least in the top 5!

Hm... I don't know if id really call them pop punk. More alt rock nowadays - SmileyStudios

7Sum 41

Sum41 create so many creative and awesome songs. I can't believe that I can love all the song of a band. Like I did to sum41, no other else.
Vote for it. and keep creative!

They have an amazing way of flashing that PUNK side of pop-punk

8All Time Low

Perfect band full of perfect people who make perfect perfect albums full of perfect songs.

Yeah, safe to say, I think ATL is perfect.

All time low are just so amazing! They have such a perfectly flawless punk pop sound!

How is New Found Glory not up here? Anyway ATL has to be up there with my top fave pop-punk bands. Though I do admit they came at a later time along with My Chemical Romance, Boys Like Girls, and Panic! At the Disco, when the more popular bands were fusing pop-punk with emo. I'd categorize such bands in the "late 2000s" era of pop-punk. Just saying late 90's early 2000's pop-punk has a more edgy feel to it, while still being angsty: A.E. the song (not so much Avril) "Sk8r Boi", Yellowcard-"Ocean Avenue", NFG-"My Friends Over You", Sugarcult-"Stuck in America" Allister-"None of my Friends are Punks", Bowling For Soup-"Almost", and old Fall Out Boy-"Grand Theft Autumn"

9Panic! At the Disco

They will always be remembered and I love their uniqueness! They had a 1920s burlesque theme for their first album "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out". I thought that was one of a kind and no other band has done anything like them! Their music tells a story and I love every song!

Their circus/burlesque fetish made them unique, and they weren't like any band you've ever heard. They were original lyrically and musically, adding orchestral instruments, and subtle elements such as dark cabaret and electro pop. They will always be my favorite band..

There are no words to describe how they made me feel, and how they changed me.

10Good Charlotte

If I see another pop punk list with All time Low near the top I'm going to puke. GC deserve higher than that overrated band ATL.

How is this band good look at the ratings this band gets I did think the young and hopeless got harsh reviews but this band is just so meh

The Contenders

11Simple Plan

They are so talented. Really. They went from playing at the drummer's home to playing at sold out shows. To me, they are the kings of pop punk.

Come on guys simple plan with their album just Balls!

12Boys Like Girls

This band ought to be in the Top 5. If you don't agree, then listen to The Great Escape, Love Drunk, etc. Oh, and by the way, Green Day is NOT a pop punk band! They are a punk ROCK band. None of their songs have anything pop in 'em.

My favourite band for sure much better than blink182 and panic! At the disco. Top 5 material.

15Mayday Parade

Mayday Parade is extremely talented with amazing vocal range.
