Punk Rock and New Wave The best place to start would be with the punk rock and new wave scene of the late 60s and 70s, although with more of a focus on the latter. Bands such as The Ramones, The Jam, Toy Dolls, The 101ers (Joe Strummer pre-Clash), Generation X, and many others would lay the groundwork for what would become pop-punk music later on. Bands like these set themselves aside from many others of their time because of their upbeat, loud, and melodic music. Hardcore Punk Music Steps In The 1980s saw the dawning of a new music scene that would later spawn the well known straight edge movement. Coming from the underground scenes in mainly California, Washington D.C., New York, and the most notable place, Boston, New Jersey where the scene continues to flourish the most. Hardcore music could be classified by it's loud, often angry sounding vocals, distorted guitars and break downs. Catchy upbeat chorus lines and a clean, defined sound was rarely heard here, if ever. Worth noting...
Pop-Punk Breaks Through What was officially known as the first wave of pop-punk started to show up in the early 1990s. The genre wasn't a commercial success and most bands had a DIY approach to their music like their hardcore punk counterparts, but a lot of independent record labels began to spring up during this period, two notable ones being Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph Records, who would see huge success later on. Commercial Success In the mid 90s, pop-punk music began to find itself becoming more and more popular. Green Day released their first album on a major record label, and other bands such as The Offspring and MxPx did the same. With many of these songs being played over and over on radio stations and MTV, there was an interest in punk music again from major record labels. Punk bands were offered lucrative contracts, and they often would tour with pop-punk bands. Worth noting, ska-punk began to rise in the early to mid 90s. Since it shared many characteristics with pop-pun...
Emergence of New Bands During the mid 2000s, the lines that defined pop-punk genre began to become more and more obscured due to the rise of many new bands with a unique blend of sound. Bands such as The Used, Taking Back Sunday, and My Chemical Romance began to take the scene by storm, showing many pop-punk characteristics but spouting a darker and more depressing tone. Many people have created a whole separate sub-genre for bands such as these, which they would call "emo." This is what created the rise of the emo scene during this time, where many teens young people would wear mostly black and have a depressing tone to them (later on this scene would evolve into what we call "scene" today where instead of mostly black, they'd incorporate many bright colors and crazy hairstyles). A lot of people didn't appreciate these bands being called emo. Whichever way people wanted to cut it, these bands could be seeing touring with many pop-punk bands regularly because of their similarity, an...
John Jaguschon July 04, 2017: Pop-punk didn't start in the 90s it started in the 70s with the Buzz Cocks Collinon January 07, 2017: The mid-2000's is not where emo started, and the bands mentioned (with the exception of TBS) are not actually part of the genre. Emo has a history almost as long as pop punk does, but it's much less understood. Tinkon August 24, 2015: Airhorn Brainy Bunnyfrom Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania on April 20, 2012: I love your hubs on pop-punk and related fields. I have been a huge punk fan all my life, and as a teen was into hardcore as well. (Bad Religion is still one of my favorites today!) I think you've done a great job with this overview, and it's given me some ideas for music to check out today. (As a mom of kids in elementary school, I'm not exactly hopping off to clubs every night.) Voted up and awesome.
