Landmark Pop Punk Albums

Hunter C. French
The list author says: "Everybody loves a pop punk song or two, even if it is a guilty pleasure. This list takes you through all of the most important and highest quality realeases of the pop punk genre. If you ever heard All The Small Thigns or American Idiot on the radio and found yourself singing along this list is for you. I couldn't recommend any of these albums enough."
Dookie
Dookie
"The album that single handedly created modern pop punk. It's got equal parts punk energy and catchy-as-heck melodies. It could be argued that every pop punk act that followed owed a debt to Green Day's Dookie."
Enema Of The State
Enema Of The State
"One of the most popular cd's of the genre is also one of the best! This album is fast, chatchy, fun, and plays host to some of the best drum parts outside heavy music. Straight up classic."
Last Stop Suburbia
Last Stop Suburbia
"Perfectly encapsulates what pop punk is about. This album is a bunch of teenagers playing music and having the time of thier life. Thier enthusiasm is downright infectious. Nothing about this album is groundbreaking, but it really doesn't matter when the songwriting is this good."
Take This to Your Grave
Take This to Your Grave
"The album that launched the carrer of one of the industries biggest acts remains thier overall best effort. This album combines fantastic vocals, drums and lyrics. Breaking up never sounded so good thanks to Mr. Wentz."
Upsides
Upsides
"A relativley new album, The Wonder Years took the pop punk scene by storm in 2010 with the release of The Upsides. Just one listen to this album will put you in a good mood and probably make you feel a little better about your life. The lyrics are honest, heartfelt, and almost painfully genuine."
Living Well Is the Best Revenge
Living Well Is the Best Revenge
"A criminally underrated release. Before Gabe Saporta was in Cobra Starship, he was the front man of the pop punk band Midtown. The band never ventures too far from the tried and true blink songwriting template, but these songs are quite good and very worthy of a listen and a purchase."
New Found Glory
New Found Glory
"A more energetic album I challenge you to find. These guys managed to put out one of the most rowdy, fun, and crazy albums in the genre while maintaining thier status as the most fun band to see live... Ever."
American Idiot
American Idiot
"The most ambitious and musically challenging pop punk release. period. Taking as much inspiration from The Who as the Ramones, this punk opera has gone on to become a true modern masterpiece. Everyone has heard the singles on the radio, but if you have not listened to the full album you are truly doing yourself a disservice."
