Pop-punk is non-existent genre of music. Why? Because it contradicts itself. Pop, is short for popular, as in popular music, mainstream. Punk is more than just a three-chord structure , its a mindset, an ideology.
The obvious rebuttal is that when a punk band becomes popular, they are pop-punk. This is absurd because in order to get popular they had to sell out, which goes completely against the punk attitude. Compromising on your message because the record company doesnt want any lawsuits is not what we punks stand for. There are some exceptions, anti-flag for example, they pretty much sold out around the time For Blood and Empire came out, but at least their lyrics still convey what they believe, and Justin Sane doesnt have that whiny bitch voice that alot of these "pop punk" bands vocalists seem to have these days.
Im currently working on getting a music player on here, but on playlist.com i could only find about half of the songs i was looking for and thats the best thing ive come across so far.
Feel free to reply, i can argue all day, well at least until its time to go to work again...

Music is an awesome thing. The more you listen to it the more you will discover and the less room you will have on your ipod. I created this blog to show the world the difference between real punk bands playing good music and what our society today considers as "punk", which is about as close to real punk as any any politician is too taking a stance on... anything. I’m gonna apologize now for everyone i am going to offend with my social commentary; not really if you are offended too bad for you. Also, I guess there a genre of music called pop-punk, and ill explain why it doesn’t exist later on when I have more time to write.Basically I just want to share my findings in the music world and help promote those bands out there that are true punk rockers.That’s all I got for now, but I will be updating this blog on a regular basis once I get it going.
