The Top Ten

1 Pinkerton V 1 Comment
2 Something to Write Home About

This one is good, this lost is good.

3 Your Favorite Weapon
4 The Moon Is Down
5 Take This to Your Grave

Such a nice one, just love this list.

6 Life In General
7 Turn the Radio Off
8 End Is Forever

Got it when I was very young.

9 Smash

Along with "Dookie", this album helped bring punk to fame in '94. It's hard to imagine where would pop punk be without Green Day and The Offspring.

This album is better than all the albums above, especially "Pinkerton".

10 Dookie

This is the album that brought punk into the mainstream in 1994, so of course it has to be here

The Contenders

11 Ramones

Without this band and this album, pop punk wouldn't have existed.

12 Milo Goes to College

The Descendents' 1982 classic "Milo Goes to College" was the source of inspiration for the pop punk genre as well as the bands that helped create/popularize/revolutionize the genre in the 90's, such as NOFX, Green Day, The Offspring, Blink-182, MxPx, just to name a few.

13 Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols

One of the albums that pioneered/defined punk rock!

14 Through Being Cool
15 Suicidal Tendencies
16 Zen Arcade

This album needed an honorable mention because, to my best knowledge, Hüsker Dü was/is one of the godfathers of pop-punk.

17 Double Nickels on the Dime

Like "Zen Arcade" (which came out the same year as this album - 1984), it paved the way for the pop punk genre.

18 ... and Out Come the Wolves
19 Damaged

Black Flag's first album "Damaged" needed to be on here because it was one of the sources of inspiration for many punk subgenres, such as hardcore and pop punk.

20 Got Beat Up

This one is nice
