On this episode we're diving into the Punk pool again with everyone's favorite summertime genre- Pop Punk! "Pop punk (also known as punk-pop) is a punk rock music genre and a fusion genre that combines elements of punk rock with elements of pop music. Pop punk typically combines fast punk rock tempos, power chord changes and loud, distorted electric guitars with pop-influenced melodies and lyrical themes." - Wikipedia
