Contemporary pop punk

there r so many genre in the world of music.this is the most genre that i loved..contemporary pop punk..beside that i also loved to listening punk rock genre..
if you want to know more about this genre,here some history that i've got..

started in 2003 and later..In 2003, Blink-182 released a self-titled album, which garnered the band several hits, such as "Feeling This" and "I Miss You." The band went on hiatus in 2005, with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker founding the pop punk/alternative rock band +44, and Tom Delonge starting the alternative rock band Angels & Airwaves. Some pop punk bands started playing a lyrically darker style of music, sometimes described as emo. In 2003, Florida pop punk band Yellowcard released the album Ocean Avenue and the hit singles "Ocean Avenue" and "Only One." New Found Glory released Catalyst in 2004, which included the hit, "All Downhill from Here." Although some songs on the album expanded on the band's hardcore influences, other songs added synthesizers and keyboards. Good Charlotte released their album The Chronicles of Life and Death in 2004. The album was less commercially successful than their previous effort, but it produced the hit singles Predictable and I Just Wanna Live.

In October 2004, Sum 41 released the album Chuck, which mixed pop punk with several other genres, including thrash metal, alternative rock, hardcore and slower-paced music. Their first single, "We're All To Blame," reached #10 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks charts, and the single "Pieces" topped the charts in Canada. Also in 2004, Green Day released the politically-driven rock opera American Idiot. The singles "American Idiot", "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", "Holiday", and "Wake Me Up When September Ends" received international airplay and MTV video rotation. Christian rock band Relient K scored a mainstream breakthrough in 2005 with the album Mmhmm and its singles "Be My Escape" and "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been." 2005 also saw the release of Fall Out Boy's major label debut, From Under The Cork Tree, with hit single "Sugar, We're Goin' Down" and "Dance, Dance". In July 2007, Sum 41 released Underclass Hero, which sounded more like their album All Killer No Filler than their heavier albums such as Chuck. Also in 2007, Paramore's album Riot! regained a spot in the Billboard 200 after falling off quickly three months earlier. Rolling Stone magazine classified the band as "Ones to Watch".
