Green Day was barley even punk rock before Dookie came out, but after that? Forget about it. American Idiot is no where even near punk! Just listen to the drums! Same with 21st Century Breakdown, which was somehow even less punk. - SmileyStudios

Green Day was pure punk rock now they are more Alternative/pop punk. But to me they are still punk. Still a good band

They completely ripped off the Descendants.

Green Day sucks.

This is the #1 poser. I mean, I can see why other people would call the other bands poser bands, but this, this is POP. Not POP PUNK. Just POP!

Pure pop music. I have no clue why there are so many people out there trying to claim that this band is punk. - SmileyStudios

This should be number one, not Green Day.

5SOS suck

They're just Bubblegum Rock by todays standards. Sure, they may have started the punk rock movement but it got so much better after they were gone. - SmileyStudios

5 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.

Let's not forget about their debut album bullets, which actually was punk. And fantastic punk at that. Fairly misfit-esque Everything after was emo/ pop punk though.

These guys were emo pop punk at best. - SmileyStudios

They never claimed to be punk

6 The Clash The Clash The Clash were an English punk rock band that formed in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk.

Stupid, I doubt a poser knows who was the clash

Only the first album is punk. After that it's commercial power-pop with punk lyrics but not punk rock in music anymore.

They were the ones who sold out and brought punk to the mainstream. Great, but posers when it comes down to it. - SmileyStudios
