This pop punk bands list ranks the best pop punk bands by votes. This list of good pop punk artists and groups let’s you see who pop punk fans think are the best pop punk artists. Pop punk bands, though associated with both punk rock and power pop, are entirely different beast than the two genres they combine. The best pop punk bands emerged in the mid-to-late 1990s, emerging from those early DIY years to become global superstars whose songs are some of the most well known punk songs. Pop punk bands have become some of the most heard bands on the radio and the top pop punk bands continue to sell out arenas, headline festivals, and have rabid fan bases. The continued popularity of the genre demonstrates that punk pop is more than just a flash in the pan.

So, what are the best pop punk bands? Any list of pop punk bands has to include the likes of Blink-182, Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Rise Against, The Offspring, and Good Charlotte. These are widely known as pop punk bands who advanced the genre far beyond what people would have ever imagined when pop punk first emerged. This list should also include good pop punk bands that are known to many as well as newer acts that one day could be considered some of the greatest of all time.

That said, it's up to you determine what are the best pop punk bands. If you notice that a band is missing and should be included, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best pop punk bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest pop punk musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote on the names based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular and alternative pop punk bands that you might've heard of.
