Popular: regarded with great favor, approval, or affection especially by the general public

Punk: Rebellious, counter-cultural.

Hmmmm...

Pretty Pathetic is a fun song, haha.

The Ataris introduced me to it on their "All You Can Ever Know..." EP.

Some good-to-great pop punk*:
Dirt Bike Annie
Beatnik Termites
Screeching Weasel
The Ergs!
The Groovie Ghoulies
The Parasites
The Lillingtons
The Queers
The Riverdales
Teen Idols
The Vindictives

*I'd rather just say power pop or punk rock because pop punk's become such a dirty word due to some extremely bad bands.

Pop punk is supposed to be a slightly poppy, bubblegum type of punk rock. 3 chord, Ramone-influenced rock 'n' roll.

I miss early 90's Lookout! Records, time to bust out the vinyl when I get home from work. Honestly I can't stand the newer "pop punk", it just sounds too clean and over-produced to me. But to each their own.

You know, an artist can never really call themselves, "punk" if they sign a record contract. Just ask Green Day. A lot of people turned their back on them after they made it big and signed a contract.
The thinking is that by signing a contract you are making yourself part of the establishment and become a, "cog in the big machine".
Having said that, I was a fan of Avril Lavigne back in the day. She tried to pull off the punk look, but her music was very much pop. Not to mention shes pretty hot. Next to hockey, she is probably the best thing to ever come from Canada.

By that way thinking, the Ramones (Sire, Chrysalis) and the Clash (CBS) aren't punk bands... but of course most of the punk bands on major labels usually suck or change their sound.
