WHAT EVEN. 72?! Are you high?! Get these guys up there. They definitely deserve to be up in the Top 10. These guys have been in my life for YEARS, their voices are absolutely beautiful. WAY UNDERRATED BAND. FIX IT.

83 Direct Hit!
84 Four Year Strong

Four Year Strong is easily the best pop punk band of all time. Sadly, the new album was a gigantic disappointment. But Enemy Of The World, and every single album and song before it was pop punk at its finest. Undoubtedly the best. Why are they at 36? Must really suck to be four year strong right now

43? My god! They're by far and I mean by far! TOP 5 MATERIAL! Awesome lyrics, awesome music, awesome breakdowns, all the songs are good specially the first 2 albums! WHY THE HECK NOBODY KNOWS THIS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT BAND:( My god, what happen with the world

Never done a bad song, would seriously recommend to anyone! No other bands like them, I can guarantee they will be big any time soon

Best Band on this Planet, they're literally burn the places up when they play live.

Better than the rest though they're not that much famous but I like their second voices songs

#71? What? Are you kidding me

86 A Rocket to the Moon

WILL definitely be a great band someday. They have good potential. Nick Santino has a very mellow yet sudden voice, while the Guitarists and the Drummer (Especially the Drummer) are very, very talented. Has some FoB roots.

88 Marianas Trench Marianas Trench Marianas Trench is a Canadian rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia, formed in 2001. The band consists of members Josh Ramsay, Matt Webb, Mike Ayley, and Ian Casselman.

Josh Ramsay (vocalist) has, by far, made the best songs I've heard in my life :3 Check out my two favorite songs by them: Toy Soldiers and Celebrity Status BEST PUNK & POP BAND EVER!

These guys really need more recognition. Josh has the most diverse range I've ever heard and his voice is just so real. I love them so much.

Such an awesome underrated band! Everyone I've shown this band too is hooked.

Marianas Trench and All-American Rejects are the my favourites, seriously worth listening too, proper pop punk❤️

91 American Hi-Fi American Hi-Fi

(please listen to their 1st 2 albums "American Hi-Fi" and "The Art of Losing"
I'll compare these to Warning, put off your pants and jackets and MOve along)

Just go and listen to Flavor of the Week, the breakup song, another perfect day, lost, the art of losing, the geeks get the girls, wall of sound, I'm a fool, built for speed, nothing left to lose... And you'll find one of the best bands out there

In my opinion this band should be in the top 5.

92 Future Idiots

Swedish pop-punk bands that is pretty much underrated!

Best Pop-Punk Bands in the after 00's. Still rocking in 2016. Great albums and blinkish sound.

Great musicians and songs

Found these guys some month ago on youtube. Its just mindblown. They are playing classic late 90s pop punk and remind me a lot on blink-182. a fun fact is that they have released a coveralbum of blink-182 neighborhoods in the toypay style. Pretty awesome stuff!

Good band, great skill, they are going places

94 VersaEmerge

I love VersaEmerge... But they're not pop punk. They're experimental rock. Where's the pop or punk essence?

With songs like Mind Reader and Fixed at Zero their easily top ten material.

Well, it's a relief to know versaemerge finally won over Paramore. even though they didn't make it to the top10 YET.

My well known, but they are just incredible.

95 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.

Pierce the veil is the best band! Why the freak is it on number 76?

Amazing band, but more post hardcore than pop punk!

210 come on have you heard their new music on point with pop-punk I love them

96 Motion City Soundtrack

The way you hear the band evolving is amazing, especially from "Commit this to memory" to "Go". The singer Justin Pierre had some drug and alcohol problems that he has now gotten rid of, and you can hear that clearly reflected in the amazing lyrics. Their bassist also has some subtle but great bass lines. All this is topped off with their amazing synth riffs.

Awesome. If you haven't checked them out (you have my sympathies) DO IT NOW! Start with I am the Movie or Commit This to Memory and rock on through - it's all AWESOME.

I don't understand how this band can be so low; significantly better than all of these crappy spoilt children.

97 With Confidence

With Confidence = New Blink-182
5SOS = New Green Day

98 Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!

An excellent mix of pop punk and metal.

One of best underrated bands ever, I think they are amazing and a band that I would love to see higher up on the list, they are what this genre means

Hey dudes are you ready to?

92! Where have you been?! These guys are so good! This band should be Top 5! Even Bertrand Poncet, the lead singer if this band, knows how to dress pop punk better than the other bands on here!

100 City Lights

Their mix of hardcore and pop is without a doubt the best I have ever heard. The way they generate catchy hooks and breakdowns you can mosh too makes them the best of both worlds and definitely the best of any current pop punk bands!

Really good guitar riffs and harmonised singing, and a cheeky bit of double bass too. I love the way they sing about breakups and crappy relationships with such a happy tone!
