PopPunk bands often [[BlatantLies claim to be]] power pop. Considering TheWho inspired many of the first punk bands, this may not be surprising.

Power pop dropped out of the spotlight after the end of the seventies but continued to thrive underground and proved to be an important influence on AlternativeRock bands - many of the early alt-rock bands, such as {{REM}}, played JanglePop and owed a massive debt to power pop, especially Music/BigStar. The genre has still had its occasional moments of mainstream success, such as MatthewSweet's "Girlfriend", GinBlossoms' "Hey Jealousy", {{Weezer}}'s "Buddy Holly", and Walk the Moon's "Shut Up and Dance".
