The whole album is so good and has so many underrated songs. It was hard to pick my favorites.

blink-182 - Enema Of The State



"Take Off Your Pants And Jacket" is probably the album that started me on the path from listening to music as a past-time to making it my life. For the longest time I really didn't like this album, just because I loved every inch of TOYPAJ. But as I got older and re-discovered my love of pop-punk, this album floors me every time I listen to it. There is maybe one filler song here, but the rest is AMAZING pop-punk. blink brought the formula to the masses and set the bar for what good pop-punk is. Everyone knows the hits from this album, but the "deep cuts" are better than most songs from this genre ever put out. This is in my CD player in my car for weeks on end. It's amazing.

Recommended tracks: Don't Leave Me, The Party Song, Wendy Clear

Green Day - International Superhits!



This is a compilation. It's on this list because it represents the best of Green Day's best musical period. 1994 - 2000, no one could touch Green Day's brand of pop punk. Decidedly more punk and harsh than blink-182, they still captivated so many with the catchy hooks and memorable songs. The comp has two new songs (for the time) that honestly sound like they could be their most popular songs. Listen to this album and weep, for Green Day will never be this good again. Also: "Basket Case" is to pop-punk what "Ace of Spades" is to metal.

Recommended tracs: So many, but J.A.R. (Jason Andrew Relva), Nice Guys Finish Last, Waiting (my favorite Green Day song)

Drum roll please...

New Found Glory - Sticks And Stones



Take all the good elements from all the albums on this list, roll it into one, and you've got this album. The perfect pop-punk album and the prototype for all these "pop-punk/melodic hardcore" bands you see springing up today. The reason New Found Glory is one of the few bands in this genre that's still going strong that never broke up is that they don't write songs for the intent of being catchy, they just naturally are. They get their point across and are aggressive, meaningful, and fun. There are no forced songs on this album; no filler in sight. Every pop-punk band on Warped Tour in the past 5 years owe their existence to this album.

My Friends Over You
Sonny
Something I Call Personality
Head On Collision
It's Been A Summer (with tenchi!)
Forget My Name
Never Give Up
The Great Houdini
Singled Out
Belated
The Story So Far

Good list (Kudos to giving Enema of the State some love, everytime I tell people I know it's my favorite blink album they just stare at me like I said something extremely offensive) though it still won't get to revisit anything by Taking Back Sunday
