I think it's time to admit the defense of pop-punk failed.

Hey hey now! You weren't at The Story So Far on a week ago. The Hawthorne was poppin' that night.
That's because there's not enough beer in the world to make me enjoy The Story So Far.

I think it's time people stopped taking a harmless branding on some shirts as a legitimate call to arms for a genre of music that has always done well enough for itself in the first place.
Not doing very well for itself right now IMHO. The defense failed and the banner wavers were responsible for digging the grave. You create a marketing gimmick - you gotta live with it when the music ends up being bad .... jussssttttttt my two cents. Feel like all these pop punk bands are just phoning it in on the backs of bands from years ago. Calling themselves pop punk is more important than doing anything great music wise. The tumblrs and memes and "cred" is more important than crafting songs. There are a few exceptions -- but it's few and far between.
