Jaded Punk has posted a list of "36 Pop Punk Albums You Need To Hear Or Just Go Fucking Die" in response to BuzzFeed's list.
We’ve noticed a trend of people co-opting pop punk to mean whatever the shit they want it to mean. And here’s the thing: we get that punk is supposed to be all-inclusive and it’s open to interpretation. But if we can’t set up at least some broad musical boundaries, the genre is meaningless and everything is pop punk and we can include Dr. Dre’s The Chronic.

BuzzFeed have posted the top 36 (what a random number) pop-punk albums you need to hear before you die.
New Found Glory were kind of like the Walmart version of Blink-182. But they did manage to produce that song “My Friends Over You,” which if you can believe it or not has gone on to inspire a whole crop of new pop punk bands, like Set Your Goals and The Wonder Years, so that’s pretty cool.

Call Me Anything have finished recording their new album with producer Christian Medice. Hit the replies to watch a studio update.
“Don’t get me wrong, it’s still pop but the new music is much more universal. With “Celebrity” we had a very targeted demographic, and in turn, a very targeted audience heard it. With this one, we're expanding to a much wider set of listeners. Instead of having a record that only your younger sister might listen to, we made a record that everyone might like driving in the car. It's gonna kill it. I'm beyond stoked.”
