Sum 41 is excellent but they are clearly underrated and their videos on YouTube deserve at leat 200 million views, but that applies to Green Day and My Chemical Romance as well.

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

Everyone likes them now because they are becoming more mainstream. However, their pop punk stuff isn't even thought about twice by the people on the bandwagon. Listen to Thnks Fr Th Mmrs, I Don't Care, Saturday, & Sugar We're Going Down, and that is one of the real reasons why Fall Out Boy is an underrated pop punk band
