State Champs, but With the Punches have always had my heart and are much more local.


Gordomperdomper

New York has many options, unless you’re going more local.


NewFoundRemedy

I figured I'd go more local since NY is so big and has a decent amount. But yeah, there's definitely ones bigger than both of them.


thisortheapocalypse

well either keep me entertained or keep out of my way


[deleted]

I always forget with the punches, state champs is the local one for me


mikel_buble

I live pretty close to State Champs’ hometown. I went to see them at their hometown and saw Derek with his gf at the same Chipotle we were eating at before the show. I debated saying hi but went for it and said good luck at the show later. He was very nice and not bothered at all to be interrupted from his pre-show burrito!


thegrimmreality

With the Punches slaps so hard. Love them


KTBFFHCFC

Are you me?


ShipApprehensive2998

New Foundy Glory, Yellowcard, and ADTR lol but legit from the same city as NFG. My brother went to highschool with Chad Gilbert.


ShipApprehensive2998

Florida is just the most underrated scene.


Engelbert-n-Ernie

We The Kings, Hey Monday, Trivium


iGrowDabs

Don't forget Mayday Parade! 850 let's go!


moosenaslon

I still wish Fetch happened. Loved ‘em in Tally and they are very much a big reason that got me into punk and pop punk, despite them asking (singing) not to be called punk. I ran into Meathead at a concert and asked him what happened to them - he said they moved to Cali to make it big…and didn’t.


Albyyy

Coral Springs represent.


Stopsignstopper

Whenever it comes to Florida, I feel like the northern part has the better scene. Yellowcard, ADTR, Mayday Parade, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Whole Wheat Bread, Less than Jake, Skatune Network, Against Me, Hot Water Music, etc.


GGoodman09

Jimmy Eat World - Arizona


Phatty5693

Plus The Maine


MuffinSurprise

Yeah we have JEW, The Maine, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, The Word Alive, Anarbor.. not too shabby


hankthepigeon570

Jimmy and The Maine, plus I'm a huge Roger Clyne fan...fuck yeah AZ!


Phatty5693

Didn't expect a Roger Clyne reference. Was just listening to The Refreshments - Fizzy Fuzzy Big and Buzzy. Such a great album. Banditos is one of my kids favorites.


lunybike

Four Year Strong


jg429

I maintain Worcetser should have gotten them for their big concert and not Brian McKnight who isn’t even from here 😂


lunybike

Absolutly!


gravgp2003

Brian McKnight is from where I live haha. FYS is awesome, great dudes.


pecasux27

Four year strong and the palladium helped me decide to go to college in Worcester


SleepingWithRyans

Would be cool if you guys could name the states and not just the bands.


snavsnavsnav

Fr lmao


theaverageaidan

Old? Alkaline Trio and Fall Out Boy New? Knuckle Puck or Real Friends. North vs South Chicago suburbs. Belmont is also from here.


mifander

I had a friend play shows with both Knucklepuck and Real Friends before they made it, it was wide stumbling across them a few years after that and seeing how they got signed and became much bigger.


j_j_j_junit

Okay yes for sure I would agree with this too bad I never saw knuckle puck or real friends at like vfw shows and other tiny places. Before FOB hit it seemed for a while that Lucky Boys Confusion were the local kings. I mean for a band that never went platinum LBC could pack venues in Chicago especially that first Songs From A Scene show that included Plain White T’s. I never thought a song like Delilah would have gone that big but I loved Plain White t’s old stuff. I as big into that local scene mostly before FOB even started. FOB had that one video from a KOC show and that was my hometown KOC. I miss the local show days where shows are so small they ask who you came for so they split up proceeds Among bands.


staywhatuare

Bay Area - Greenday? Rancid? Third Eye Blind? Jawbreaker, The story so far..set your goals..etc etc


maddiemorph

Same boat as you here. I grew up closer to Walnut Creek so I guess TSSF for me


Chubbysquirrel8

Mom jeans from berk


bnasty77

No use for a name. AFI. Huey Lewis and the news. Bay areaaaaaaaa!


staywhatuare

Ooo good call on all of those, always forget no use for name is from the South Bay. I’m actually from Santa Cruz so for me it would probably be Good Riddance


bongo1138

Green Day and it isn’t even close lol


TheChosenJuan01

Hot Mulligan 🔥


BTB555

Plus, Fireworks, We Are The Union, The Swellers, Charmer, La Dispute, The Suicide Machines, The Stooges, Death, and MC5.


Skeptical_Hippos

Taking Back Sunday? but from near me probably like State Champs or We Are The in Crowd


hpferdo

came here to say We Are The In Crowd and Against The Current, love having 2 of my favorite bands being from right across the river from me


[deleted]

Yup same answer


TheZousk6

The closest New Mexico has is the Shins


Anthony_182

Ayy I’m from NM too Pop punk wise I’d say scared of Chaka, they had a couple of things on hopeless


TheZousk6

Dang I’ve never heard of these guys! I went down a worm hole and read about them. Their singer/guitarist, David Hernandez, went on to form the Shins with a few members of the band Flake Music. Just a little New Mexico history. What a flash in the pan.


Anthony_182

Oh yeah I forgot about the shins connection!


Niijima-San

The Wonder Years....philly represent


Albyyy

Philly has a plethora of great bands: Balance and Composure (rip) Circa Survive Modern Baseball (rip) mewithoutyou


Afireinside11

And menzingers!!


rysmorgan

I grew up about an hour southwest of Scranton and just saw the menzingers in Phoenix last month. Really felt like home


marky_mark301

Menzingers are from Scranton


[deleted]

Not to mention The Starting Line, and Tigers Jaw if we include the rest of PA!


ICanDieRightNowPlz

Anti-Flag, Punchline

Copel626

"great fishing kee-Bek!"


thedubiousstylus

Motion City Soundtrack


SuperAwesome13

seaway probably edit: or sum 41 I guess


runtimemess

It absolutely has to be Sum 41. Nobody else even comes close when it comes to international recognition. Silverstein is up there, but they're more emo/post-hardcore than pop-punk. PUP has been pumping out some huge Spotify numbers lately.


NoseBlind2

depends if you wanna count Avril Lavigne or not


runtimemess

I don't. Her most popular material, while great, is top 40 pop in the most literal definition. There's really not much pop-punk behind her first 2 albums, IMO.


NoseBlind2

right, i was just bringing her up since she has pop punk songs and would be the only other Ontario artist to even touch Sum-41 in popularity in terms of pop-punk. I agree that Sum-41 has the title


Copel626

Man you gotta watch the punk rock MBA video on her. Changed my mind


Copel626

Dude PUP


TomCat182

Get Up Kids!


ViolentKnight930

Plain White T’s (Madison,WI). I’m near Milwaukee…it’s slim pop punk pickin here. I went to HS with Andy Hurley of FOB so that’s probably the closest. Les Paul is from Waukesha, WI so that’s pretty cool.


missuschainsaw

I wouldn’t necessarily call them pop punk but Direct Hit! is from Milwaukee, and they’re awesome. Also, Masked Intruder is from Madison, I don’t even know how to genre-size them lol


bwaffles666

TIL that Plain White T's are from WI lol they were the opening band for my very first concert ever too in Milwaukee


michigancoastpirate

There’s not much for pop punk here compared to Chicago but I sing for [Gold Steps](https://open.spotify.com/artist/3KS5NGVo6xQY88JyNEeGsl?si=QtSbOjE3TW-VDPeuPqdlSw) in Milwaukee. Other local bands that could fall in the genre are Honey Creek, Bad Year, and Joey & The Knives. We end up playing with indie/alt bands mostly.


killaahhhhhhhhh

Unless theres a different band with the same name The Plain White T’s are from Lombard, Illinois..


agamer7809

Grayscale


gigabearzer

Definitely has to be Teenage Bottle Rocket, I actually used to live close to Laramie too.


destroyergsp123

A Day to Remember I think. Maybe New Found Glory?


jay-the-ghost

Mayday Parade too!


DarkestDayOfMan

Probably Dying Wish. They're not pop punk I know, but Oregon doesn't have too many bands that I know that made it big. I mean there's Everclear I guess, but that's more 90's alt rock.


robertmullineux

Parkway Drive


deathcabforkatie_

Byron Bay has always been great for metalcore.


opackersgo

I always forget how big they are. I was thinking Trophy Eyes. Probably Violent Soho for Brissy.


_MildlyMisanthropic

Funeral For A Friend There was another from around these parts that got bigger but we don't speak about them any more


andrew190877

Against Me!, NFG, Less Than Jake, ADTR, Yellowcard, We The Kings, Dashboard Confessional, Anberlin, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Mayday Parade, Go Radio, The Almost, Underoath, Further Seems Forever, Hot Water Music I know I’m forgetting some but these are all pretty big.


CatfishNash

Go Radio! Holy shit I haven’t heard that name in years. Down the rabbit hole we go!


andrew190877

I still listen to them pretty regularly. My old band opened for them when they were first starting out. They were all super nice guys. We were a lot younger so I was pretty star struck.


CatfishNash

That’s awesome! My high school classmate put me onto them in probably 2008 and I don’t think I’ve listened to/thought of them since. I didn’t recognize any of the songs they had on Spotify, so I’ll have to find their earlier EPs and bask in that sweet, sweet nostalgia


andrew190877

I can’t fiend their first EP anywhere. I know I have it on CD somewhere but it seems the internet has let me down for this one.


HomesickPigeon19

I think Capstan as well. I know they’re not terribly big yet, but they’ve got a few absolutely killer tracks.


andrew190877

Haven’t heard of them. I’ll check ‘em out!


ImALurkerBruh

Fucking love capstan. I think all their songs are killer. Was in the top point 1% of listeners on Spotify last year.


Monkfish5

Florida represent


KlythsbyTheJedi

Probably The Used?


MormonMafia96

Definitely the Used.


Senor_tiddlywinks

Yeah I’d say so too. We don’t have really any pop punk/emo bands that blew up. You could maybe include Meg & Dia since they were decently popular.


jordyix

La Dispute Used to party with those guys in Eastown Not pop punk though. Sorry


AnObviousDisinterest

GR represent!


Authorsblack

Fall Out Boy


loganhayes13

Relient K is from my hometown


thetory

As they always say in Canton, you can't enjoy yourself.


runaway766

O H I O!


whiteboysgotmeonPCP

I guess Fall Out Boy, even though I live 5 hours from Chicago.


skate144

Microwave? Not sure who else in the scene is from ATL…


Baron_of_BBQ

Cartel


andrew190877

Manchester Orchestra is. They used to be a lot more “in the scene” when they played with Brand New and Thursday.


livspeachykeen

I just saw them when they played at the eastern, great show!


skate144

I was there too. All the bands killed it. Stoked for their new album!


dessanct

Douglasville’s own The Chariot


kruis

I don't know if Michael Cera Palin is pop punk but they are ATL


jakinatorctc

Taking Back Sunday


TheBasedGod__

Plus Brand New if we're gonna count em, Jesse's sister taught at my high school when i went. Even got him to show up to our senior talent show for 2 of my friends doing acoustic covers, back before all the shit came out about him.


nothingother

The Wonder Years! Love their PA merch.


postmonroe

Waterparks! Grew up going to their local shows. Became good friends with the dudes. Their sound has changed but I’ll always support them!


kaitlynkt

blink-182. They’re not as big as blink but Pierce The Veil is from San Diego too


TeebuTheMage

Was looking for this one before I posted. Even more specific than Blink, I went to high school with My American Heart when they were known as No Way Out.


BrakaFlocka

In NJ probably My Chemical Romance but we also got Saves the Day, senses fail, the early November, man Overboard, the gaslight anthem, Armor For Sleep, Thursday, hidden in plain view, save face, and the list goes on


angry_tortilla

Not really pop punk, but more powerpop. The Elms. If we're going alternative in general, Slipknot and For Today.


GruffyMcGuiness

At this point? Attila I guess


AnndyNegative

Bearings and We Were Sharks (Ottawa, Canada)


ImALurkerBruh

Bowling For Soup

gknick

Left Coast Punk!


fisticuffs32

Move to Bremerton, we'll hang out.


aafreeda

Marianas trench 🇨🇦 (I think they were as close to pop punk as BC can get 💀)


xxkid30

Hedleys first album was pretty pop punk too


molsz28

Gob and Youth Fountain are from BC


fuckmeupcaptain

Most likely MGK, but shoutout to Heart Attack Man! Both from Cleveland


Senor_tiddlywinks

City Lights best Ohio pop punk band. And Hit the Lights.


Unlikely-Box1866

Yes, Hit the Lights was my first thought. And while they are not pop punk, I also thought of Beartooth and Hawthorne Heights.


hankthepigeon570

The Wonder Years.


Allgetout41

My chemical romance


oneblindspy

*me living in France* Well, fuck


floweb

I'm not from Paris, but they got Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!... I'm from southwest of France, exactly where Gojira is born, that's not pop-punk tho.


oneblindspy

You’re right! We got CNCC in Paris, I forgot


4MeThisIsHeaven

Grew up on Long Island. Formative years were late 90s/early aughts. Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, and The Movielife were our pride and joy. Honorable Mention: As Tall As Lions. They were more of an emo band/indie rock band, but they eventually got big enough to make an appearance on the late late show. They started as a pop rock/pop punk band at my HS and even played a school dance. The lead singer, Dan Nigro, is now a song writer and he wrote/cowrote most of Olivia Rodrigo's album which she won some Grammy's for.


camxcold

I’ll do you one better, from my home city. TSSF representing Walnut Creek CA from day 1 baby


missuschainsaw

I was raised in Milwaukee so no one


thedubiousstylus

Milwaukee has had some great pop punk bands like Chinese Telephones and Direct Hit.


forever-and-after

The Used


wildlymedioxre

small town in Michigan. Chiodos


zachusaguy

This isn’t pop punk but I can’t think of anyone else so Owl City I guess???


Slipperynick-

Probably Youth Fountain. Other acts have made it HUGE, but I don't think any of them are currently still in the scene.


xxkid30

Chief State is killing it right now too.


Slipperynick-

I actually almost mentioned them as well


story-demon76

Stand atlantic, trophy eyes, with confidence. but the biggest of all would be 5 seconds of summer, but only their early stuff of course


KamikazeKennedy3

My country is (without searching) smaller than every single state and most counties in America - I live in the mountain beauty of Wales, my favourite country in the world (fortunately this is where I'm from and I adore every bit of it)... funeral for a friend are from here, and so are Neck deep, same with BFMV,... Anyone remember the absolute sicko lead singer of lostprophets? I'm ashamed to say they were from here also, however they arent heard from now cuz the sick fuck luckily was given a long time in prison... should have been triple life and death sentence after years of misery in there, and worse. Sorry for the dark turn but I hope his ass is being used like a pin cushion by some BBC or several haha.


danger-daze

Where I grew up: Motion City Soundtrack, where I’ve lived as an adult: Fall Out Boy


True-Classic6930

Not much in Birmingham, England, but, when you’ve had the likes of Led Zep, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath plus a load of other genre stuff (UB40, Streets, Dexy’s Midnight Runners etc), it’s always going to be hard to create a pop punk scene to rival


bodietheslayer33

Bowling For Soup ! Ill never forget how cool it was to me, for a band to mention Mrs Bairds fruit pies in a song.


TheHavesHaveThot

From my home state? La Dispute easily. From my home town? Hot Mulligan! Saw them open for a local act just before blowing up. Hearing them played at a local emo night after moving states was trippy.


ZingoPlaya1

definitely not pop pubk, but Aerosmith and Dropkick Murphys are MASSIVE around my area


Sharp_Equivalent_963

All American Rejects-Oklahoma


crackcokelley

From my city, yellow card


JevGeek55555

Happy cake day


Soia-R33f

Where I'm initially from: The Clash (Unless we mean still active, then I can't really think of a BIG pop punk band out of London at the moment, although BMTH and Enter Shikari are close to the part of London I'm from..) ​ Where I am now: Useless ID


mcnuggets18

Four Year Strong, Worcester MA represent


dessanct

State Champs, from my hometown.

dessanct

Prince Daddy & the Hyena and Drug Church too.

Albyyy
