Damn, what a solid list of bands. Weston's Got Beat Up and Digger Powerbait makes me smile.

Weston is so underrated. I remember discovering them from the Street Sk8er soundtrack (which is a pretty solid soundtrack, looking back on it).

whoooooooooo?!
at least list bands people have actually heard of & bands people actually like

Alkaline Trio are pop punk, lulz

Alkaline Trio are definitely pop punk. Besides the pop punk sound they've opened for Blink (Enema of the State tour, I believe? Or Maybe it was TOYPAJ?) and shared a producer with them.

And if you've never head of/listened to bands like Descendents, Mister T Experience or Lawrence Arms then youhave a whole great world of pop punk ready for you to listen to.

A lot of people end up getting into pop punk through the Drive Thru style and I have a lot of love for those bands but the Lookout!, Asian Man and Fat Wreck styles (to name a few) shouldn't be overlooked.

This.
Also, you can't blame kids for not knowing bands that were popular when said kids weren't even born yet.

I wasn't born when Descendents, The Clash, or The Smiths started (note: not saying the latter two are pop punk in the slightest, just using them as examples) but that doesn't stop them from being three of my favorite bands. Age has some to do with it as far as exposure goes, but streaming sites like Spoitfy make it a lot easier to give bands who inspired the current crop of bands a shot. I got into the Smiths, for instance, because Brand New were always talking them up and I got into Lfetime and Jawbreaker through Saves the Day and NFG. I know a few people a lot younger than me who got into Descendents because of Blink covering them. Old being intricately band or vice versa never made much sense to me.
