Pop Punk That Doesn't Suck

Pop/punkISH stuff. I know these aren't all pure examples.
1Saves the Day
Stay What You Are


Will most likely always be my favorite pop punk album, and "This is not an exit" will always be my favorite pop punk song.
2Park
It Won't Snow Where You're Going


Defies all preconceived notions of what pop punk is supposed to sound like.
3Say Anything
...Is A Real Boy


Only great Say Anything Album
4Park
No Signal


IWSWYG's poppier little brother. Listen to "Cover Up" if you can find it.
5The Early November
The Room's Too Cold


Overlooked because of that silly label that released it. Some definite moments of brilliance on this gem (i.e. that bridge on "Something That Produces Results")
6Time To Fly
Birth.Work.Death


Flying under the radar, this album has been heard by almost nobody. Kinda like Park in the guitar work. Check out "My Private Language" - a definite highlight in the genre
7The Db's
Stands For Decibels


Extremely influential power pop from 1981.
8Watashi Wa
The Love of Life


The catchiest album on this list.
9Saves the Day
In Reverie


The Black Sheep in StD's discography
10The Mae Shi
HLLLYH


Hyperactive insane pop fun
11The Movielife
Forty Hour Train Back to Penn


Jamestown is the Jam
12The Early November
For All of This EP


Almost as good as TRTC and just as many unique ideas. Includes the band's best track, "I Want to Hear You Sad"
13Facing New York
Facing New York


Leans more towards a progressive indie rock sound similar to Moving Mountains, but definite pop/punkish elements. Check out my review.
14Home Grown
Kings of Pop


Some of the best of the immature variety
15Inkwell
These Stars Are Monsters


Solid Indie rock with former Of Montreal member Davey Pierce
16The Unicorns
Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?


Would be higher on this list but it doesn't quite represent the genre as well as the others. Still, not far from a pop-punk album, this album is overflowing with quirky personality. One of my favorite albums.
17Rufio
MCMLXXXV


Some of the best guitar work you will ever hear in the genre. "Science Fiction" and "Pirate" are two of the greatest songs of all time
18Moneen
Are We Really Happy With Who We Are Right Now?


Off kilter guitar rhythms, and impressive drumming make this a standout
19Midtown
Forget What You Know


Forget you know about Cobra Starship
20Saves the Day
Through Being Cool


Anthem for bullied teens around the world
