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

I understand why this is No. 1. Also where is does this look infected?

2 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

3 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

4 Ocean Avenue - Yellowcard

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

5 All Killer No Filler - Sum 41

I like does this look infected better, but this one is good too

Best punk ever want to see them live so bad

It's good Alblum

6 Take Off Your Pants & Jacket - Blink 182

Without a doubt, defined the genre

Amazing album

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 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

9 Insomniac - Green Day
10 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

The Contenders

11 Paper Walls - Yellowcard

Such a great underrated pop punk album

12 Nothing Personal - All Time Low

BEST pop-punk album of all time (low)

SEX just pure SEX

13 The Art of Losing - American Hi-Fi

Really good album to sing along!

14 Brand New Eyes - Paramore

Not so good as Riot but still very cool

15 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

16 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? ".

17 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.


18 Bleed American - Jimmy Eat World
19 Cheshire Cat - Blink-182
20 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
21 Descendents - I Don't Want to Grow Up
22 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

23 Radiosurgery - New Found Glory

Best paired with the first warm day after a long winter

24 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".

25 Under Soil and Dirt - The Story So Far
26 Drunk Enough to Dance - Bowling for Soup
27 Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing - The Wonder Years
28 Riot! - Paramore


The Best álbum ever!

29 Move Along - The All-American Rejects

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


30 Hot Fuss - The Killers

This is actually more pop rock than pop punk

31 Under My Skin - Avril Lavigne

Grungy pop-punk sounds meets dark pop-rocker songs

This album touches my heart... Is very beautiful

32 The Young and the Hopeless - Good Charlotte
33 Through Being Cool - Saves the Day
34 Warning - Green Day

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

This is good

Love this albu.! Especially the songs
Macy's Day Parade
Waiting (# 1 favorite off of this album)

35 Smash - The Offspring
36 American Hi-Fi - American Hi-Fi

Where did these guys go after this?

37 MMHMM - Relient K
38 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".

39 Splinter - The Offspring
40 Chroma - Cartel

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

41 Underclass Hero - Sum 41

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


42 Take This to Your Grave - Fall Out Boy

Brought Fall Out Boy into the limelight, this album has screams, catchy choruses, melodies, etc. Singles are "GRand Theft Autumn/Where IS Your Boy", "Dead On Arrival", and "Saturday".
