Pop-Punk In The 90s

422 Pop-Punk In The 90s

Genre Dissection - Roundtable

Release year

We dive into the 90s phenomenon known as Pop Punk and discuss the distinct sounds, the bands, the albums, and legacy of this Punk offshoot

Author & Special Guests

The term "Pop-Punk" started showing up in the mid-90s - a hybrid of the breakthrough punk sound via bands like Green Day and The Offspring, but with a decidedly more pop (re: melodic) twist in the vocal department. It's not easy to pin down with what band or at what time pop-punk took off, but from what we discussed with our guests, we know artists such as Blink-182 helped set the proverbial table for what would be a full-on pop-punk explosion in the 2000s. We put our thinking caps on and try to determine the unique characteristics, good and not so good, that made pop-punk unique, and how it factors into the story of the 1990s music scene.
