Best Pop / Punk Bands of the 2000s


The Top TenXW

1Green DayGreen Day are an American punk rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock . Some of their influences more.

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

Green Day has continuously shown support for their fans and have dominated the music genre. Easily one of if not the greatest bands of all time.

2Blink-182Blink-182 are a Pop Punk band formed in 1992. Original lineup were Mark Hoppus (Bass Guitar, Vocals) more.

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 is an irrelevant copy of Green Day. Here is the point.

Copy of Green Day? Are you kidding? How is Blink-182 a copy of Green Day? I like both bands equal and they have different style, they aren't a copy of each other. - Wolf92xd

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.

Best POP punk band ever

3Fall Out BoyFall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

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

Patrick stump kills it along with the rest of the band

4My Chemical RomanceMy Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

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!

6Panic! At the DiscoPanic! at the Disco is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2004 and featuring the current lineup of vocalist Brendon Urie, accompanied on tour by bassist Dallon Weekes, guitarist Kenneth Harris, and drummer Dan Pawlovich.

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.

Originally called Kaspir, the band was formed in 1996 and, as of 2015, consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Deryck Whibley, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Dave Baksh, co-lead guitarist/backing vocalist Tom Thacker, bassist/backing vocalist more.

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

Panic! At the Disco and Fall Out Boy aren't punk bands...

14Boys Like GirlsBoys Like Girls is an American pop rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 2005, the group gained mainstream recognition when it released its self-titled debut album.

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.
