A look at the punk rock music scene in the 2000s and how it’s evolved since its inception in the 1970s.

The early 2000s: a time of change for punk rock

The early 2000s were a time of change for punk rock. The genre had become increasingly popular in the 1990s, but by the early 2000s, it was starting to become more mainstream. This was due in part to the success of bands like Blink-182 and Green Day, who helped to bring punk rock to a wider audience.

However, not everyone was happy with this increase in popularity. Some punk rockers felt that the genre was becoming too commercialized and “sell-out” bands were betraying the punk rock ethos. This led to a split in the punk rock community, with some bands and fans embracing the new, more mainstream direction that the genre was taking, and others holding on to the older, more underground sound.

Today, punk rock is still going strong, with both old and new bands keeping the genre alive. Whether you’re a fan of the older sound or the newer sound, there’s something for everyone in punk rock music.

The rise of pop punk and emo

In the early 2000s, two new subgenres of punk rock began to achieve mainstream success: pop punk and emo. Pop punk bands like Blink-182, Green Day, and Sum 41 combined the fast tempos and loud guitars of punk rock with catchy hooks and adolescent lyrics about girls and parties. Emo bands like My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy also found success with a similar sound, though their lyrics were often more angsty and personal, dealing with topics such as mental illness, anxiety, and heartbreak.
