They're sound isn't really poppy enough for that. Especially when you compare them to Bowling For Soup, Panic! At The disco, and Bowling For Soup.

Exactly. I'm glad to be a fan of pop punk, actually. It means I can find enjoyment out of somethinfg that's usually considered bad, like brostep and crunk. Proud fan of all three!

It's poppy enough. Maybe not poppier than a lot of pop punk, but enough.

Nirvana: Occasionally. They're punkier in their bootlegs and live shows. I've heard about 9 or 10 bootlegs.

Weezer, nah. They're more power pop with a dash of emo.

Pearl Jam's Live at Easy Street EP was fairly punky.


"Nirvana started out as punk with Bleach but then moved into alternative territory"... I can't tell you how much that sounds like a sentence I would write. Is this a quote from me?

But comparing the punkiness of Pearl Jam to Green Day is like comparing the poppiness of Adele to Justin Beiber. The two have very different sounds. What you said about Nirvana can also apply to Green Day, except it took Green Day longer. Not claiming to be anything near a punk expert, but after hearing 100 punk albums I can tell punk when I hear it. And I suppose with Green Day, it's somewhat vague since they have a history in pop and alternative that may or may not tone down their punk sound depending on the listener.

Well of course. Don't you know that American Idiot is based on the ignorance of Americans toward the importance of going green?

Kind of, but not really
Well, grunge is an offshoot of punk.
From wikipedia:
"Grunge typically fuses elements of punk rock and heavy metal."
