|Awesome Pop-punk Albums|
Basically, I used to post a lot on the pop-punk forums, and it was the first genre I think I actually liked. I still like most of these albums.
Milo Goes to College
There's a reason every other post in the pop-punk forum, for a period of time, consisted of nothing but this artist/album title. Even when it stopped being funny. Seriously one of the best, even if you're not so much into pop-punk but still like other forms of punk music, I'd check it out.
|2||Saves the Day|
Stay What You Are
Very good album, kinda "whiny" but it's not too overbearing. I prefer this over "Through Being Cool", there's more pop and less punk here than on their previous effort. Very fun album, highlights for me are "Nightingale" and "This Is Not An Exit".
Was only gonna put one album by a single band on this list, so had a hard time chosing my favourite blink album. This is better than TOYPAJ and more fun than their most recent, self titled album. Enema ran it close and I've never really rated Dude Ranch even though their are some good songs on it. Every song here is good, really has that whole teen spirit thing going on, which is relevant to me and so I like it the best.
Obvious choice, but this is one of the bands that got me into music, and this is my favourite album by them. Most people will have heard this, and with good reason. Classic.
|5||Fall Out Boy|
From Under the Cork Tree
Fall Out Boy got big on this album, but it gets very little love. People who like FOB as a pop band prefer the subsequent two albums, whereas those who liked them as a pop-punk band preffer "Take This To You Grave". This is their best though. Awesome songs, with no real bad songs. Used to love it.
War on Errorism
Whilst this may not be their best album, it's still really good, and the first one I heard. Don't tend to listen to them much anymore, not because I don't like them, I don't really know why. But yeah, really good album, the opener is awesome and you should listen to it.
...And Out Come the Wolves
Still a solid album, not really sure if this fits on this list but it's close enough. Loads of classic songs on here, and more serious than most of the aforementioned stuff. Less concerned with teenage life, this is a different slant on the genre, inspired by classic bands such as The Clash.
Antoher of the bands/albums that got me into music. Some stuff on here is still good. Shame the band turned to shit (see "Hit That" I think it was), but some fast, catchy songs here. And "Pretty Fly for a White Guy".
Your Favourite Weapon
Not their best album by a long shot, but definetly one of my favourite bands. I heard "Jude Law and a Semester Abroad" and I lvoed these guys, this album is very solid and I remember being interested about the fued with TBS on the song "Seventy Times Seven". Loads of good songs, "Magazines" is underrated.

Tell All Your Friends
A serious classic in this specific strand of pop-punk, every song is good, the opener being a favourite of mine. Awesome singles, some cringeworhty lyrics but it's all part of the fun.
|not a fan of 5. 9,10 has a couple ok songs. Ixnay On the Hombre and Smash are better Offspring albums. needs some Say Anything|
|list's decent, needs mayday parade, ataris, bayside, futures, jack's mannequin :D|
|i can agree with comments for 5.|
|5 is awful.|
|Dude, 6 is like NOFX's worst record. Check out Fireworks' latest!|
|What jrowa001 said about Offspring and Say Anything. 4&9 are great though. And 2 is easily my fave of all time, plus you definitely pointed out the 2 best tracks so props.|
|yeah, I still really like that album, it's awesome. this list was kinda half nostalgia, half stuff i actually like, and half both :p that's why stuff like that nofx album is on there, i haven't heard a great deal of stuff by them but i've heard better, but the list isn't about 100% quality|
|4,5,9,10 are all pretty great. List definitely needs Bayside and Jack's Mannequin.|
|If you want a great pop-punk album from 2009 check out the new Fireworks. |
|I keep hearing that, the one song on their myspace from it, "Detroit", is pretty good, will check it out.|
|2 is great|
3 is great ( but Enema is definetly better)
5 is alright
9 is great
10 is amazing
