A client of ours who loves pop-punk recently asked about some personalized ideas for pop punk first dance wedding songs. We love a good pop punk song and they never fail to bring back some fond, fond memories. Remember those bumper stickers that said “Defend Pop Punk” or going to your first Warped Tour? How about Drive-Thru Records? We didn’t deserve such great music in such a short period of time, but we got it! Accordingly, we obliged the request and had a good time in the process!
The trick when developing this playlist was to find pop punk and pop punk-ish songs that not only make for a great slow dance, but also whose lyrics don’t veer into pessimistic territory. Not all of these are love songs, and some are more emo than pop punk, but hey those lines blurred a long time ago lol. Ready to rock? Here we go!
