It is not clear when the term pop punk was first used, but pop-influenced punk rock had been around since the 1970s; performed by bands such as the Ramones, Buzzcocks, The Jam and The Undertones.[2][3][4] [5] [6][7] In the mid 1990s, California-based pop punk bands achieved worldwide commercial success, and the genre's association with Southern California has led some to call it the SoCal sound. Three examples of breakthrough pop punk records are the 1994 multi-platinum albums Dookie by Green Day and Smash by The Offspring and the 1999 multi-platinum album Enema of the State by Blink-182.[8] This article needs additional references or sources for verification. ...

History

Origins (1974-1980s)

Further information: Punk rock

The pop punk style emerged at the onset of punk rock around 1974, with the Ramones, however it was not considered a separate subgenre until later. The Ramones' loud and fast melodic minimalism differentiated them from other bands in New York City's budding art rock scene. Additionally, protopunk bands and power pop bands such as Cheap Trick, The Knack and The Raspberries helped lay the groundwork for pop punk.[citation needed] An early use of the term pop punk appeared in a 1977 New York Times article, Cabaret: Tom Petty's Pop Punk Rock Evokes Sounds of 60's.[11] By 1977 in the United Kingdom, punk rock had already become a much more active and concentrated movement than in New York City. The Undertones, Buzzcocks, The Jam, The Rezillos and The Shapes featured catchy melodies and lyrics that sometimes dealt with relatively light themes such as teenage romance. On the somewhat harder-edged side of pop-influenced punk, there were bands such as 999, The Vibrators and The Lurkers. Many mod revival bands displayed pop punk leanings, particularly The Chords and Purple Hearts.

By 1981, hardcore punk had emerged in the United States, with louder, faster music than the songs played by punk bands. Vocal harmony, melodic instrumentation and 4/4 drumming were replaced with shouting, discordant instrumentation, and experimental rhythms. A few bands began to combine hardcore with pop music to create a new, faster pop punk sound, sometimes referred to as popcore (or skatecore), such as Descendents and The Vandals. Their positive, yet sarcastic approach began to separate them from the more serious hardcore scene. The term pop punk was used in the 1980s, in publications such as Maximum RocknRoll, to describe bands similar to Social Distortion, Agent Orange, and TSOL.[12] Hardcore punk, now commonly known as hardcore, is a subgenre of punk rock that originated in North America in the late 1970s. ...

Underground pop punk (early 1990s and later)

Many pop punk artists rejected mainstream record labels in favor of running their own labels or releasing albums on small independent labels, such as Lookout! Records. Many of these bands, built large cult followings in the early 1990s such as The Queers, Mr. T Experience, and Screeching Weasel. These bands were musically influenced by the Ramones' short song style and lyrical themes; such as boredom, dissatisfaction and growing older, and in-turn continue to influence non-commercial pop punk bands that exist today.

Popular acceptance (1994-1997)

In February 1994, Green Day released Dookie, the band's first album on a major label. The first single, "Longview", instantly became a hit on MTV and modern rock stations across America. Following the success of their first single, Green Day released "Basket Case", which became an even bigger hit and made the band a household name across the world. Other hits were released from the album, including the extremely popular "When I Come Around" (which, like "Basket Case" became the biggest single to be released at that point), "Welcome to Paradise", and "She". Dookie sold 10 million copies in the US and 20 million copies worldwide. Green Day gained enough popularity that year to be performers at Woodstock '94, where the band and spectators engaged in a friendly mudfight that is now considered legendary.[citation needed] The band appeared on Saturday Night Live, the covers of Spin and Rolling Stone, and won a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album.

Shortly after the release of Dookie, The Offspring released the album Smash. The first single "Come Out and Play", with a pop sound that differed radically from any of their earlier work, became popular first on radio and then on MTV. Other singles "Self Esteem" and "Gotta Get Away" sold well. The album sold over 14 million copies worldwide, setting a record for most albums sold on an independent label. While the popularity of Dookie and Smash swelled, attention spilled over to other bands such as Rancid (ska punk), NOFX, MxPx, Pennywise, Jawbreaker, Smoking Popes, Lagwagon and Anti-Flag. Of these, Rancid, although not a pop punk band, received the most attention with the two hits, "Ruby Soho" and "Time Bomb", from their album ...And Out Come The Wolves, which eventually went platinum.

Pop punk's sarcastic "brattiness" provided a more commercially viable alternative to the moody nihilism offered by many grunge, hardcore and earlier punk rock bands. By the end of the year, Dookie and Smash had sold millions of copies,[13] and pop punk had become a prominent musical style. This also heralded the beginning of an era that would see pop punk drift farther away from punk and hardcore and even closer to mainstream pop. Many (though not all) pop punk bands from this era would produce music that resembled more traditional pop, but with a punk edge, sometimes referred to as punk pop. For other uses, see Brat. ...

During this surge in interest, some bands became associated with the pop punk genre even though they didn't consider themselves part of it. Weezer, a California power pop band, played a raw, power chord-driven, melodic pop sound that was similar to that of pop punk. Their Blue Album (1994) and hit single "Buddy Holly" influenced many future pop punk bands. Seattle trio The Presidents of the United States of America had two hit songs in 1995, "Lump" and "Peaches". Their sound combined grungy guitars with upbeat pop melodies and fun lyrics, creating sound similar to pop-punk. Northern Ireland rockers Ash's hit song "Kung Fu"'s bouncy, fun, simple power chord-driven sound was more energetic and punk-inspired than fellow Britpop bands such as Oasis and Blur.

In the mid-1990s, a ska punk revival was taking place, led by bands such as Sublime, and Rancid (who included ex-members of the ska punk band Operation Ivy in their lineup). Ska punk shares many characteristic of pop punk such as its upbeat sound and distance from grunge and hardcore. Some ska punk bands borrowed less from pop punk, while others such as Goldfinger and Less Than Jake have elements of pop punk in their music. By 1997, pop punk's audience had expanded significantly. Green Day's song "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)", from their album Nimrod, brought pop punk to new levels of acceptance. Even more mainstream than pop punk, it featured Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong playing acoustic guitar and singing heartfelt lyrics, backed by violins. The song was used in the final episode of Seinfeld in 1998, exposing Green Day's music to an even wider audience. Also, in 1997, blink-182 released their second album and first relative hit, Dude Ranch. It included two of most popular songs of the trio, "Dammit" and "Josie".

Continued mainstream ascent (1998-2003)

In 1998, The Offspring released the album Americana. This period of The Offspring's career is generally seen as their mainstream peak. The band released their next album Conspiracy of One (2000) on Napster before they released it on Columbia Records, sacrificing album sales so their fans could enjoy their music for free.

Contemporary pop punk (2003 and later)

In 2003, Blink-182 released a self-titled album, which garnered the band several hits, such as "Feeling This" and "I Miss You." The band went on hiatus in 2005, with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker founding the pop punk/alternative rock band +44, and Tom Delonge starting the alternative rock supergroup Angels & Airwaves. Some pop punk bands started playing a lyrically darker style of music, sometimes described as emo. In 2003, Florida pop punk band Yellowcard released the album Ocean Avenue and the hit singles "Ocean Avenue", "Way Away" and "Only One". New Found Glory released Catalyst in 2004, which included the hit, "All Downhill from Here."

Pop Punk Fashion

Pop punk fashion sometimes overlaps with skater punk fashion and emo fashion. Contemporary pop punk fans often wear items such as band T-shirts with, tie or scarf; blazers; Dickies pants, baggy pants, jeans or shorts; studded belts; Converse All-Stars or skateboarder shoes. Popular patterns include check and arms. Hair is usually long for women, and short and spiky for men — and is sometimes dyed black, platinum blonde, or natural hair colors with unnatural streaks.
