The Top Ten

1
Green 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!
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

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

3Paramore
Lovelovelove! (haha, see what I did there? )
They're one of those bands that definitely stand out in the genre and not just because they're a female fronted band kicking ass in a genre dominated by male fronted bands. Each album of theirs was unique and at least they don't keep putting the same album out over and over again. They're not afraid of experimenting and it comes out pretty well. Also their lyrics are hella more ground breaking and creative compared to most other pop punk bands. Plus their live performances >
Paramore are just amazing, the music and the people.
I think paramore and fob deserve the top spot. I could go on forever about how much I love them and how amazing they are but I'm just going to say... They kick ass.
And in my opinion paramore&fob > My Chemical Romance

4My Chemical Romance
If there is one of many things I love about them is that they don't give themselves a label, yes they classify themselves as "deathrock/violent pop", but the media labels them as emo, goth, punk, etc. But the versatility of this band, the earlier stuff was closer to post-hardcore, and had an ALMOST gothic-ish sound, The Black Parade was a sort of a harder, gloomier, theatrical more macabre version of pop-rock and Danger Days was almost a melting pot of indie, syntho-pop, pop-punk and even some songs sounded a bit techno with all the bleepiness
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.
Should be in the top 3, they're way better than Paramore and FOB. They rock!

5Fall 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 ; )...

6All Time Low
All time low are just so amazing! They have such a perfectly flawless punk pop sound!
This should be #1! No other pop-punk band tops All Time Low!

7Good Charlotte
Good charlotte are absolutly amazing, there voices are so good they are all so damn hot and there songs are flawless. Love them so much <3<3<3!
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.
THEIR LYRICS ARE SO TOUCHY

8Sum 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!
All Killer No Filler.

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.

10Simple Plan
These guys are so good they should at least be in the top 3 with good charlotte they are all hot there voices are amazing every single one of there songs are so meaningfull. Love them so much <3<3<3<3!
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!

The Contenders

11Boys 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.
Amazing can listin to boys like girls 24-7!

12Bowling for Soup
