Pop Punk

Pop punk (also known as punk pop and other names) is a fusion genre that combines elements of with pop music, to varying degrees. It is not clear when the term pop punk was first used, but pop-influenced had been around since the 1970s; performed by bands such as the Ramones, Buzzcocks, The Jam, The Undertones, and Generation X. Bad Religion, who started in 1980, were another early band to play the genre, and some consider them godfathers of pop punk.
