What Killed POP PUNK?

WHAT KILLED POP-PUNK? New Found Glory, Sum 41, The Story So Far

What killed pop-punk? I look at the rise of pop-punk, the golden years of Blink 182, New Found Glory and Sum 41, and the mini-revival of the 2010s with The Story So Far, Real Friends, etc and ask the big question: what happened?

- 90s pop punk/skatepunk like Descendents, All, Screeching Weasel, The Vindictives, NOFX, and J Church

- How Green Day and The Offspring made pop punk mainstream

- Golden era bands like Fenix TX, Simple Plan, The Starting Line, Unwritten Law and Home Grown and labels like Drive Thru Records

- The rise of the Fueled By Ramen bands like Paramore and Fall Out Boy

- How New Found Glory inspired the 2010s bands like The Story So Far, Real Friends, and Knuckle Puck (and the related "soft grunge" bands like Citizen, Title Fight, and Basement)

- Did emo rap take it's place? Eg, Lil Aaron, Lil Peep, Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, Lil Lotus, etc
