1 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn

They are NOT pop punk.

Sleeping with sirens is not pop punk are you on crack? Seriously. They're great I'll give you that but definitely not pop punk at all.

They are not pop punk laugh out loud

I like this band but they are more of a alternative pop post-hardcore influenced metalcore band than a pop punk band - twilightfan765

2 Pierce The Veil Pierce The Veil Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.

In thought I'd given up all home in life, then when I started listening to their songs I got a little hope. Then when I learned who they are.. Vic showed me its okay to be funky, no ones judging you. Mike showed me its okay to live "in the shadow" of your sibling. You're still an important factor to everything that's happened. Jaime taught me its okay to be the mess up in life, for all you know, you could be perfect bat everything you do, just try. At lastly, Tony taught me the best thing of all. Be yourself, screw what everyone else thinks. I love these guys.

This band is amazing. It literally saved my life. Without them and a few other bands I would be dead right now. I ill ALWAYS going to be a massive fan of pop punk, heavy metal and any music like this. I only listen to other music if one of these bands has done a cover of it otherwise I probably will not have a clue what the song is if it doesn't have a cover by these guys. Bye.

They are amazing, their lyrics mean so much. they taught me that is okay to be different. this was the first punk rock band I had EVER listened to and I was addicted and that caused me to listen to others! This band saved my life! Their songs are just pieces of art work! I am ABSOLUTELY in love with these guys! People think that punk rock is not good music. I LOVE it and I don't care what other people tell me! Singers sing deeper, bassists do it harder, guitarist finger faster, and drummers hit is harder.

PTV was all I listened to in middle school but they're not actually pop punk sORRY - bal47ance

They are known for their unusual amalgamation of metalcore and pop punk. The band currently consists of vocalist Jeremy McKinnon, rhythm guitarist more.

A Day To Remember has been my favorite band for the past five years. All of their albums express their situations. Jeremy's screams are clean & understandable.

Jeremy's voice is amazing I like how he can go from soft to screamo. - Timberly13

A DAY TO REMEMBER IS MY FAVOURITE BAND EVER! To be honest I wouldn't class them as pop-punk but they're AWESOME!

4 Mayday Parade Mayday Parade Mayday Parade is an American rock band from Tallahassee, Florida. Their debut EP Tales Told by Dead Friends was released in 2006, and sold over 50,000 copies without any label support.

The bands people voted above this band isn't even pop punk. Seriously, Pierce The Veil? This is POP PUNK not post-hardcore. Jesus.

Sleeping with sirens, pierce the veil and a day to remember aren't pop punk bands. So I go for mayday parade. God, they write such beautiful songs. Listen to them seriously.

All there songs have wonderful meanings behind it. - Timberly13

I love them listen to there songs

5 All Time Low All Time Low more.

They're simply amazing live, with their fans, with each other, and I do not think that I have heard any bad experience from fans who have met all time low. Alex has a beautiful voice, jack has amazing stage presence, Zack is just perfect all around, and rian is astounding at drums. It's not everyday you find a band this talented, not only in the recording department, but live, also.

If this band doesn't become number one on this list someone is going to die because this band is just the best thing ever. I love a lot of these bands but All Time Low is better than all of them. I love them more than life.

They are my absolute favorite band. They're local (I live in Baltimore), they play an amazing love show, their lyrics are meaningful, and they've saved so many people. They need to make it to number 1!

I love this band sz

6 Green Day Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk and alternative 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 more.

These guys have been around the longest and deserve the number 1 spot! LOVE THIS BAND! Oh and the Devil Wears Prada is not punk!

They are the best and have been for a very long time. They have written great songs with great lyrics with each and every album. Hell, they wrote a rock opera!

Green Day definitely deserves the first spot because they've been along and made it through the ups and downs, and they're still good as ever.

In my opinion, Green Day has gotten a lot better with their music over the years. They deserve to be up in at least the Top Three. - HarlesLovesMetal

7 Falling In Reverse Falling In Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

Falling in reverse is a great band, whether this there genre is questionable.
My favourite is raised by wolves.

This band is horrid, not because of there music, but their lead singer. He's a douche to his fans.

The band is the best. Love all of them especially Ronnie

They are awesome. Perfect for when you need a little pep-me-up

8 The Story So Far

Most of this list isn't even pop punk. Sleeping With Sirens, Pierce The Veil, Falling In Reverse, And Devil Wears Prada. More like Post-Hardcore.

In my opinion the story so far are the best pop punk band of this list, half of them aren't even pop punk or aren't playing songs anymore. If TSSF don't make it above faith please re-evaluate your music taste, thanks guys.

THE FUTURE OF PUNK/POP-PUNK. Guitarists are raw talent, the bassist uses a stand up bass in their acoustic songs which shows how diverse they are, the drummer is insanely talented and the vocalist might be the best pop punk vocalist to ever pick up a microphone when its all said and done. Their lyics are passionate and honest. And they put on picture perfect shows. These guys are the TRUTH. - Efeeley11

No other band makes me feel like TSSF does okAY - bal47ance

12 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My 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.

Voting from this list was difficult, but My Chemical Romance is definitely the one that caught my eye. All of the bands listed are amazing - I list to about 3/4 of the bands listed on here, but My Chemical Romance produced amazing music, and they're just so inspirational to me. Let the black parade live on! - PiercedVeil

What the f! My Chemical Romance should be on top of the list! All of their songs are great. I can't believe they're on the 13th spot.

They got my spot due to their songs and lyrics. So touchable deep into my heart. :) Love them very much hope can get more from them!

My Chemical Romance should be at the TOP

Solid library, and the addition of Acoustic versions of albums is a great idea

This band is one of the only bands that has such melody to combine light voices with extremely fast guitar riffs and pulls it together with motivational lyrics.

16 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop 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.

FOB rock! Save rock and roll is the best album of 2013 so they should be at number 1.

THEY ARE BACK! Patrick Stump is out of this world and a one in a million musician. Pete Wentz is a great writer. Andrew Hurley is a great drummer & Joe Trohman is an awesome guitarist. They should be at top 5

Great band❕ should be number one! Or at least in the too five

Best pop punk band!

17 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

Paramore is amazing. They're evolving and trying out new things instead of sticking to the same sound for every album and letting it be monotonous. The vocals are absolutely amazing and the sound great live.

Paramore is a great band because they have a variety of music. Still into you is an incredible song

What sleeping with sirens and pierce the veil aren't even pop punk. This seems more like a list for generic post-hardcore bands that "emo" and "scene" kids of today like than best modern pop punk bands. blink-182, Fall Out Boy, Green Day, Paramore and many other actual pop punk bands should be at the top.

Their latest album was so sad. RIP Faro Brothers
