When I say "Pop Punk", what's the first thing that comes into your head?

Not just bands please. It's research for my A2 art coursework. Anything to do with views in society and fashion etc.
I also need ideas for a question I could answer for my coursework.

Teeny boppers who want to be angry and rebel but don't know what to be angry about so just talk about normal things in an angry voice, hoping to be taken seriously, rebelling without ever actually doing anything rebellious. Basically things like MCR and Greenday - annoying tween fads. The idea of pop-punk should be oxymoronic; punk was part of the anti-establishment counter-culture

Pop punk is an oxymoron.

But it's like punk (real punk, edgy, dark, rebellious, nihilistic, iconoclastic, eccentric) with a more mass appealing softness.

When I think punk I think Chelsea haircut

It can border grunge, gothic, even emo.

Denim.
Leather.
Mesh.
Plaid.
Bolts and spikes.
Chain jewellery for punk. Pop punk might have more antiquish or flashier stuff.
Rips. Holes. Scuff marks. Acid wash. Fading.
Unlaced boots, steel capped.
Platforms



Dark colours with bright colours in weird places like the hair.
Pop punk might not want to offend, so no big gauges in the ears or face piercings. Real punks don't care.
Lots of chaos, but not contrived like pop punk.

It's like, I'm a rebel but I don't want to scare you.

Maybe even scarier than that

Or better still

It's not just mohawks though

This is borderline emo though with that guyliner.


This is a bit gothic, especially that pullover and that septum piercing.

More contrived.

Punks really are about not caring. They do what they want with their hair

and look like they just throw **** on and leave. But the clothes they throw on are normally ripped or spiked, denim, flannel, leather... men would be loose fitting in some way, girls would have sexy stuff but in a wild way. Pop punk would be reversed like the men try not to scare and try to be more handsome and the women would dress baggy to look tough. Then there's classic punk where they are just ****ing weird and angry but somehow got popular.

That's my take.

Punk is basically don't **** with us, don't **** with me.

Then there's grunge which is like sloppy punks. Not as stylish but similar attitude. Punk is stylish in a scary way. Pop punk is stylish in a trendy way. Dunno but I love the topic, tbh.
