Best Pop Punk Albums

The Top Ten

1 Enema of the State - Blink 182

If you were to meet an alien and try to explain to them what "pop punk" was, you'd hand them over a copy of Enema. Singles are "What's My Age Again? ", "Adam's Song", and "All The Small Things".

This and 'Dude Ranch' are the definitive and best pop punk albums. 'All Killer No filler' and 'Does This Looks Infected? ' are the pure definition of the genre as well.

Yep, I agree. Perfect option for number 1. Adam's Song, All The Small Things, Aliens Exist, What Is My Age Again, you name it. - AnimeDrawer

Enema Of The State is the definitive pop punk album hands down. No other band, and I not even blink themselves will repeat this ever again. This was made in the pop punk golden era, 1999, but sadly that's long gone now.
Enema Of The State, Dude Ranch, and Take Off Your Pants And Jacket are much better than Dookie. There's no contest. I mean Green Day is good, but they will never be able to make albums such as those three I mentioned.

2 American Idiot - Green Day

I love this album although it's not necessarily my favorite, but I voted for it because it embodies pop punk. This, and then Enema and Take...Pants...and Jacket (both by blink-182).

What is this album doing at 25?! It is the greatest album and the most sold in the world. - keshavshivkumar

How is this album not at least top ten?

The greatest. - NvGNick

3 Dookie - Green Day

Dookie MUST be first! Green Day revolutionized pop-punk, and this is their breakthrough album! Every song on here is amazing and should crush all other competitors - PerpendicularSealeo6

Perhaps the soundtrack of 1994. Singles are "When I Come Around", "Longview", "Welcome To Paradise", "Basket Case", and "She".

Excellent record, I never liked it as much as enema, though

Basket Case >>>>>>> What's My Age Again

4 Ocean Avenue - Yellowcard

By far one of the best '03 album, and a Yellowcard fan favourite (but I still prefer Paper Walls)

5 Take Off Your Pants & Jacket - Blink 182

Without a doubt, defined the genre

Amazing album

6 All Killer No Filler - Sum 41

Best punk ever want to see them live so bad

It's good Alblum

7 Dude Ranch - Blink 182

Best blink-182 album ever

For me, this is #1

2 top ten pop punk albums?! Blink is THAT GOOD... Dude Ranch put the band onto the music industry's radar. Singles are "Dammit", "Apple Shampoo", "Dick Lips". And "Josie".

8 From Under the Cork Tree - Fall Out Boy

Best pop punk album of the 00's. Singles are "Dance, Dance", "Sugar We're Going Down", and "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More "Touch Me"".

Unreal lyrics and a definition of modern pop punk. Can you even imagine a world without Sugar, We're Going Down?

I'm pretty sure these guys aren't pop-punk, and have more emo (ish), indie and Pop kinda style. Something like Grand theft autumn is pop punk, but these guys denifitley not Pop pUnk

9 The Greatest Generation - The Wonder Years

Easy. The Greatest Generation is a touchstone in music history. It deserves a top three spot as one of the best pop-punk album of all time. The a Wonder Years are also one of the greatest bands,

Plenty of 90's bands dominating this top ten. But The Wonder Years are what pop-punk has been building to for many years, and they are the best at their craft.

This album is a master piece.

No contest. The Greatest Generation holds a 96/100 on metacritic.

This is an amazing album, there is not one bad on this CD

10 Insomniac - Green Day

The Newcomers

? Chroma - Cartel

Best album of theirs; both artful musically and intelligent lyrically. - Psi

The Contenders

11 The Art of Losing - American Hi-Fi

Really good album to sing along!

12 Nothing Personal - All Time Low

BEST pop-punk album of all time (low)

SEX just pure SEX

13 Brand New Eyes - Paramore

Not so good as Riot but still very cool

14 A Fever You Can't Sweat Out - Panic! at the Disco

It's not pop punk without I Write Sins Not Tragedies.

This was the best.


15 A Lesson In Romantics - Mayday Parade
16 Bleed American - Jimmy Eat World
17 Cheshire Cat - Blink-182
18 Does This Look Infected? - Sum 41

Come on all this songs are just wonderful this should be way higher WHY 22? , it should be at least #15

19 Nimrod - Green Day

Really underrated album, has some of the band's best songs on there. Experiments with other styles of music while retaining the punk sound, can't believe it hasn't been mentioned yet! - adammarc98

20 Descendents - I Don't Want to Grow Up
21 Americana - The Offspring

These guys may be the goofiest pop punk band out there (next to blink 182) but they also put out one of the best pop punk albums of all time. Singles are "Pretty Fly For a White Guy", "The Kids Aren't Alright", "Feelings", "She's Got Issues", and "Why Don't You Get a Job? ".

22 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
23 Move Along - The All-American Rejects

This is one of my favourite albums of all time! I love all the songs on it :D


24 Radiosurgery - New Found Glory

Best paired with the first warm day after a long winter

25 New Found Glory - New Found Glory

The quintessential pop punk album that you can listen to for days on end. Singles are "Hit or Miss" and "Dressed To Kill".

26 Paper Walls - Yellowcard
27 Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge - My Chemical Romance
28 Warning - Green Day

Green Day is more a ROCK-PUNK band so its quite good they take the 4th place in that category

29 Drunk Enough to Dance - Bowling for Soup
30 Under My Skin - Avril Lavigne

31 Under Soil and Dirt - The Story So Far
32 Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing - The Wonder Years

34 American Hi-Fi - American Hi-Fi

Where did these guys go after this?

This is actually more pop rock than pop punk

37 Commit This to Memory - Motion City Soundtrack
38 Through Being Cool - Saves the Day
39 Life's Not Out to Get You - Neck Deep

Better than does this look infected and all killer no filler in my opinion


41 Take This to Your Grave - Fall Out Boy

42 MMHMM - Relient K
43 Tragic Kingdom - No Doubt

This album was very important to females in this genre, but not only that... It was brilliant! Singles are " "Spiderwebs", "Excuse Me Mr. ", "Just a Girl", "Happy Now? ", "Hey You! ", "Sunday Morning", and "Don't Speak".
