Spin 14 of Pop-Punk's Best One-Hit Wonders

Spin 14 of Pop-Punk's Best One-Hit Wonders

FUSE TV - Spin 14 of Pop-Punk's Best One-Hit Wonders

Whether you were belting "Flavor of the Weak" into a hairbrush, learning how to play power chords to "Teenage Dirtbag" or simply blowing out your headphones, computer speakers or car stereo while blasting the Starting Line in the suburbs, admit it: You had a thing for pop-punk at one point or another. No one was immune between the years of 1996-2006. Though bands like Blink-182 and New Found Glory went on to represent that sunny genre that coupled radio-ready hooks with the driving riffs of punk and hardcore better than anything else, a handful of select bands made a special contribution to the canon of pop-punk: the one-hit wonder.

We've scoured our LiveJournals, our memories and our stacks of mix tapes to compile this list of favorite pop-punk one-hit wonders for you. Sit back, relax, rewind and revisit. (And we apologize in advance for getting "Flagpole Sitta" stuck in your head for the rest of time.)

By Hilary Hughes, Jeff Benjamin, Thomas Nassiff and Maria Sherman
