Best Pop Punk Albums

The Top Ten

1 American Idiot - Green Day

Hmm... Dookie or American Idiot

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?

2 Enema of the State - Blink 182

Simply best art ever!

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.

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".

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.

3 Dookie - Green Day

I am extra pissed this is not number 1 like what the hell? This was a revolutionary album, so important it inspired the likes of 2000s pop punk bands themselves

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

4 Ocean Avenue - Yellowcard

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

5 Insomniac - Green Day
6 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

7 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? ".

8 Take Off Your Pants & Jacket - Blink 182

Without a doubt, defined the genre

Amazing album

9 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

10 Nimrod - Green Day

Best record they've ever released, and Good Riddance is easily their biggest song

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

The Newcomers

? 21st Century Breakdown - Green Day
? 13 Voices - Sum 41

The Contenders

11 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".

12 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

When I was a young boy (girl actually), my father, just raised me with pop-punk music.

This is really heavy for a pop punk record. Love the intensity. Adore every track.

13 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

14 Riot! - Paramore

Best paramore album

Awesome

The Best álbum ever!

This is literally the best pop punk album ever made, you guys are stupid for listing it as 12th. pikeys!

15 Paper Walls - Yellowcard

Such a great underrated pop punk album

16 Nothing Personal - All Time Low

BEST pop-punk album of all time (low)

SEX just pure SEX

17 The Art of Losing - American Hi-Fi

Really good album to sing along!

18 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.

Urie!

19 Brand New Eyes - Paramore

Not so good as Riot but still very cool

20 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

21 Bleed American - Jimmy Eat World
22 Cheshire Cat - Blink-182

24 Descendents - I Don't Want to Grow Up
25 Smash - The Offspring
26 Ixnay on the Hombre - The Offspring
27 Chuck - Sum 41

30 The Young and the Hopeless - Good Charlotte
31 Under My Skin - Avril Lavigne

Grungy pop-punk sounds meets dark pop-rocker songs

This album touches my heart... Is very beautiful

32 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".

This is actually more pop rock than pop punk

36 Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing - The Wonder Years
