The first step is accepting that POP PUNK WILL NEVER DIE.
Pop punk: it's a genre, it's a style, it's a way of life. But sometimes you might let your guard down, and without warning it takes over you, turning you into the parent-hating, Vans-wearing cliché that 2006-you warned you about.
But it's not too late! As long as no more than 6 of the following 12 signs apply to you, you might not be a pop punk cliché just yet. So put on your favourite Warped compilation, grab a slice of pizza and read on:
1) You refuse to throw these out until after the next gig.
2) The Fall Out Boy hiatus was the longest period of your LIFE.
3) Warped Tour is basically your favourite place you've never been.
