Pop-Punk Season

with blink-182's new album around the corner and the weather warming up, pop-punk is slowly inching into my most-played genre at the moment. makes me feel young again. feel free to discuss some of your favorite pop-punk albums or just comment about how awful my taste is!
1Great Cynics
Don't Need Much

great anthems for summer, underrated band
2Sum 41
Half Hour Of Power

30 minutes of nostalgia
Internal Eyes

also quite underrated. dual vocals
4Motion City Soundtrack
My Dinosaur Life

one of my favorite summer albums
5Direct Hit!
Wasted Mind

both this and brainless god rule hard in the summer
6New Found Glory
Sticks and Stones

this and their self titled still go hard
7The Swellers
Good For Me

another underrated band that never got the attention they deserved
8Red City Radio
Red City Radio

more punk anthems
9The Smith Street Band
No One Gets Lost Anymore

the best smith street is also their most summer-y album
10No Use for a Name
Hard Rock Bottom

RIP Tony Sly. Always loved this guy's music
The Dream Is Over

can't give these guys enough praise. their debut and this are equally fantastic
Enema of the State

probably not my favorite blink, but definitely the most nostalgic
All I Have To Offer Is My Own Confusion

Detroit is probably one of my all-time favorite pop-punk tracks. fans of NFG will love this
Southern Air

my personal favorite YC. all their music sounds good during warmer months
15The Wonder Years
The Greatest Generation

jam this every summer. still amazing
16The Menzingers
On the Impossible Past

not as strictly pop-punk as some of these, but still fits the bill
17The Story So Far
Under Soil and Dirt

I think it's time for them to change up their formula, but their first two albums still sound pretty great
18The Dangerous Summer
War Paint

pop-punk/alt rock combo perfect for sunny weather
19The Starting Line
Say It Like You Mean It

20Versus The World
21Saves the Day
Stay What You Are

hi Cyg
22Relient K

new songs suck but this album has an undeniably charming summer vibe
23The Ataris
End is Forever

the ataris before 'boys of summer' were quite good
Temple of Plenty
25The Hotelier
It Never Goes Out

I seem to be in the minority in thinking this is pretty much on par with their other two albums. more pop-punk and less emo, but still a fantastic summer listen
26Captain, We're Sinking
The Future Is Cancelled

how could I forget this? probably top 10 pop punk ever
Let It Happen

Shout out to CLOVER for reminding me to add this one. This was one of the first (if not the first) pop punk album I ever owned. Great memories of skateboarding to carefree summers with this one

Another underrated band/album I almost forgot about. RILY: the story so far

They were a great pop-punk band before they went dream pop/emo/shoegaze
30Love, Robot
Rebuild | Rebirth

A criminally underrated album. RIYL: paramore
31Tonight Alive
What Are You So Scared Of?

More paramore-core
33State Champs
The Finer Things

after seeing them live, I was finally sold on this. A bit on the poppy side, but so damn catchy
34Set Your Goals

Fantastic and forgotten album. RIYL: say anything I guess
35Say Anything
...Is a Real Boy

Silly me for forgetting this one

an old favorite
37Something Corporate
Leaving Through The Window

this and jack mannequin's everything in transit (same singer) are great in the summer months
