Best Pop Punk Bands of the '90s
The Top Ten
Green Day are way better than Blink-182.
To all the people who claim that blink are better because they made pop punk popular, that's bull because Green Day's 'Dookie' album came out in 1994 and it was hugely popular. It is the best-selling punk record in history, it is certified as diamond in the USA and it sold 20 million copies worldwide, making it approximately the 57th best-selling album of all time. So basically, Green Day made pop punk popular way before Blink-182 were popular, and blink just rode on Green Day's success.
Blink 182 Fans only know green day's mainstream songs. If they got a taste insomniac and dookie they would realize why green day is the best. By the way all the small things is boring!
I have been listening to green day for about 1 and a half years, they were the first band I liked and I don't think I will ever stop listening to their music.
Green Day was basically the spokesmen of the 90s after the death of kurt cobain so heck yeah they deserve to be #1. Best band ever. Dookie rules!
Although Green Day has a solid grasp on Pop-Punk In my personal opinion the sound of Blink is a whole different view. Green Day is grand and all as to where it belongs but as far as modern punk pop goes I feel as though the less trendy yet still very highly acclaimed and loyally followed by a steadily growing fanbase.
Never understood why people like Green Day better. I honestly like every single song blink has published since Dude Ranch (some prior to but not all)
Green Day may have created the genre but Blink-182 is the reason why it's so popular
Blink 182 are so much better than green day and who are "Bouncing Souls"?
You probably heard / sung a song by these guys at one time or another and didn't even know it. For the sake of your soul check them out.
Amazing band formed in the late 90's, deserve a high place. Great lyrics, great instruments, great genre equals great music.
I agree with being number 3. Also where is Goldfinger?
Who are "Bouncing Souls" Sum 41 is better. Sum 41 should be #3
Deryck you have been play the guitar in the 90s
I love this band!
Is good pop punk!
More early 2000s but love 'em!
You'd Think That Lit would receive more recognition, but sadly that is not the case here, They're best known for their 1999 hit My Own worst enemy but their second album has a lot of great tunes.
Amazing band they also conquered the late 90's scene of pop punk.
Should be at the top. Green day sucks
They are the real number 1
Propagandhi on #1 and Nofx #2 is how it should be.
Fenix tx are the 90s
Only Green Day has sold more albums.
9 records strong selling 36+million.
Been around since 1984
Holds the record for the #1 selling album sold on a indie record label with there hit album smash which sold 11+million.
More hit songs then most bands dream of with hits like - kick him when he's down, dirty magic, nitro, genocide, self esteem, come out and play, bad habit, gotta get away, all I want, gone away, meaning of life, pretty fly, get a job, kids aren't alright, original prankster, want you bad, million miles away, can't get my head around you, hit that, gonna go far kid, hammerhead, days go bye, divide by zero/skin Pickens, coming for you and those are just the ones they played on the radio because all there albums are good.
Were jointly responsible for popularising (pop) punk in the 90s with their third album Smash. That this record is STILL the highest selling independent album of all time speaks volumes. The Offspring should be much further up this list. Damn you all.
Funny how low the offspring are they are way better than Green Day and Blink-182 combined.
The offspring are the best band ever! Better than blink 182. Pretty fly indeed.
Should have been up here sooner Punk!
Probably to hard core for the suburb punks jamming Blink 182 in the BMW their Daddy bought them.
Genuine bonafide Long Beach ska-reggae-dub-punk. Beer-guts, tattoos, skateboards, dope (that las one's a quadruple-entendre. Enjoy! )
I remember seeing them play in Las Vegas before they became big. Davey came out dressed as "The Crow," and owned that stage. The band's energy was intense! All these years later and still my absolute favorite live performance!
Better than The Offspring and New Found Glory. AFI started in 1991, so it is the 90's.
They are great especially their first two albums
How is Weezer not a lot higher… Ditto Offspring. Just play Buddy Holly and move up the list. Or just play anything from Smash
Weezer isn't pop punk
They are the definitive 90's punk band!
They take there time to make a DAMN KILLER ALBUM
Love me some MxPx!
Some of the best guitars in the whole punk scene. The album "Twisted by design" no more needed to be said.
