A new scene of {{Alternative Rock}} music that's grown in popularity in recent years. Named after Man Overboard's (one of the key bands of the movement) motto to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin defend pop punk]] from all of its detractors and critics (starting from The Effort's joke slogan, "Destroy Pop Punk"). This new movement combines {{pop punk}} with elements of melodic hardcore and [[Music/{{Emo}} Emo]]'s dark but poppy aggression. Bands in this movement are gaining much larger popularity recently and have started making headway on to the charts and being signed on to shows such as warped tour.

Bands in this genre:

* Man Overboard ({{trope namer}})
* The Story So Far ({{trope codifier}})
* The Wonder Years ({{trope maker}})
* Tigers Jaw
* This Time Next Year
* Balance and Composure (mixes this with {{Grunge}})
* Set Your Goals
* Transit (their recent albums mixes in more elements of Indie Emo, but is still very much close to the movement)
* Basement
* Fireworks
* Real Friends
* Neck Deep
* Major League
