Pick a pop-punk festival.

Blink-182

Ahh, Blink-182! Good for you! They don't predate, say, The Descendents or Green Day, but they're largely considered iconic institutions in the pop-punkgenre. The reason? The level of success they were able to accomplish! Blink took punk rock and made it accessible to a pop audience. If this is your answer, you're probably an innovative spirit, a fun-loving and ambitious person. Everyone wants to be around you all the time, and that's an invaluable trait.

Sum 41

Not all pop-punk bands are American, as you know. Sum 41 came on the scene and brought something of a hip-hop edge to the sound...rocking to "Fat Lip" does require some rapping talent. If this is your answer, you're probably the optimistic person who sees opportunity wherever they go. You know how to have a good time, all the time, but you also know how to get the job done.

Simple Plan

No one teetered the line between pop-punk all-stars and pop music phenonmena like Simple Plan. The Canadian punks wrote songs that perfectly soundtracked adolescence in a way few others could. If this is you, you're probably a socially astute, empathetic person. You're always aware of your surroundings and how people treat one another. Your kind spirit makes this world a better place.

Paramore

Besides being one of the few bands to go further than Warped Tour, one of the few bands to experiment with their sound in really dynamic ways without losing their diehard fandom, Paramore was (and is still, unfortunately) one of the few female-fronted acts in the game. Why is that worth noting? Everything about the Tennessee band is about progression: in sound, in message, in meaning. If this is your answer, you too are all about what comes next, how you're going to change your corner of the world in any which way. It's powerful and influential.

Good Charlotte

The 'ol GC! Good Charlotte has been at the pop-punk game forever, but has one really dynamic quality that sets it apart from the other acts...the guys came from a broken home and took that energy and made something beautiful out of it. When you have nothing to lose, you can only gain. Instead of feeling down and out, the Madden Brothers and their band went on to change the pop music industry. If this is your answer, you too possess the ability to take a negative and make it positive. Go out there and conquer; we know you will!

All Time Low

If there's any band that has shown pop-punk only gets better with time, it's All Time Low. The California-via-Maryland band released the biggest album of their career just last year...a full decade after their biggest single, "Dear Maria, Count Me In." If this is your answer, you too only get better with time. You don't look to the past, only the future, and you know with hard work, you can do anything. Keep on keeping on!

Paramore

Besides being one of the few bands to go further than Warped Tour, one of the few bands to experiment with their sound in really dynamic ways without losing their diehard fandom, Paramore was (and is still, unfortunately) one of the few female-fronted acts in the game. Why is that worth noting? Everything about the Tennessee band is about progression: in sound, in message, in meaning. If this is your answer, you too are all about what comes next, how you're going to change your corner of the world in any which way. It's powerful and influential.

Good Charlotte

The 'ol GC! Good Charlotte has been at the pop-punk game forever, but has one really dynamic quality that sets it apart from the other acts...the guys came from a broken home and took that energy and made something beautiful out of it. When you have nothing to lose, you can only gain. Instead of feeling down and out, the Madden Brothers and their band went on to change the pop music industry. If this is your answer, you too possess the ability to take a negative and make it positive. Go out there and conquer; we know you will!

All Time Low

If there's any band that has shown pop-punk only gets better with time, it's All Time Low. The California-via-Maryland band released the biggest album of their career just last year...a full decade after their biggest single, "Dear Maria, Count Me In." If this is your answer, you too only get better with time. You don't look to the past, only the future, and you know with hard work, you can do anything. Keep on keeping on!

Are you on Team Taking Back Sunday or Team Brand New?

Blink-182

Ahh, Blink-182! Good for you! They don't predate, say, The Descendents or Green Day, but they're largely considered iconic institutions in the pop-punkgenre. The reason? The level of success they were able to accomplish! Blink took punk rock and made it accessible to a pop audience. If this is your answer, you're probably an innovative spirit, a fun-loving and ambitious person. Everyone wants to be around you all the time, and that's an invaluable trait.

Sum 41

Not all pop-punk bands are American, as you know. Sum 41 came on the scene and brought something of a hip-hop edge to the sound...rocking to "Fat Lip" does require some rapping talent. If this is your answer, you're probably the optimistic person who sees opportunity wherever they go. You know how to have a good time, all the time, but you also know how to get the job done.

Simple Plan

No one teetered the line between pop-punk all-stars and pop music phenonmena like Simple Plan. The Canadian punks wrote songs that perfectly soundtracked adolescence in a way few others could. If this is you, you're probably a socially astute, empathetic person. You're always aware of your surroundings and how people treat one another. Your kind spirit makes this world a better place.
