Ahhh, pop punk, the genre gift that keeps on giving. It’s so much more than palm-muted power chords and the desire to eat pizza. Pop punk speaks directly to our souls.
It sustains our scene; it gives us a reason to wake up in the morning. Pop punk is a part of us… which means it’s probably a part of you, too. Ever wonder what pop-punk masterpiece best reflects your individual personality? Well, we have, so we compiled a list of perfect pop-punk bangers that best reflect your zodiac sign. A world of wondrous horoscopes awaits you. Scroll on down!
NOTE: While certain astrologers have different understandings and interpretations of the signs and their most defining traits, we use this U.C. Davis’ break down, because it’s a real college and this is science. So, here’s the best pop-punk jam for you, based on your sign.
Capricorn (December 23 – January 20)
Pop-punk song: “Stupid For You” by Waterparks
Personality traits: practical, prudent, ambitious, disciplined, patient, careful, humorous, reserved
Why it fits you: Like pop-punk’s favorite rising act Waterparks, Capricorn, no one knows what they want—and is willing to put in the work—like you. It’s a lethal combination, but when it comes to love, it can sometimes leave you high and dry… or stupid for someone else. Keep your head up, put on this soon-to-be classic, and feel your heart fill!
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Pop-punk song: “American Idiot” by Green Day
Personality traits: friendly, humanitarian, honest, loyal, original, inventive, independent, intellectual
Why it fits you: Most people would be surprised by this pairing with Green Day, but not you, Aquarius! You look beyond the surface. You’re not the “American Idiot,” here, but you are prone to calling out those who fit the definition. You’re not afraid to ruffle some feathers when you witness injustices, and that’s so badass.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
Pop-punk song: “I Miss You” by blink-182
Personality traits: imaginative, sensitive, compassionate, kind, selfless, intuitive, sympathetic
Why it fits you: This somber blink-182 ballad is not all sappy sentimentality—it also marked a creative turning point in the band’s career, allowing them to enjoy the sort of longevity that landed them a Grammy nomination in 2016 for California. This is totally you, Pisces, because it’s super-emotional and different—combining your softness with your artistic soul.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Pop-punk song: “Fat Lip” by Sum 41
Personality traits: adventurous, energetic, pioneering, courageous, enthusiastic, confident, dynamic, quick-witted
Why it fits you: Isn’t it obvious? Your adventurous spirit lives on in this pop-punk banger from Sum 41 that is not only canon in the genre, but also a little bit weird. No one expects the rap at the beginning, and somehow it totally works? Just like you, it’s a little bit surprising and a whole lot of awesome.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Pop-punk song: “Voldemort” by With Confidence
Personality traits: patient, reliable, warmhearted, loving, persistent, determined, placid, security-loving
Why it fits you: As a Taurus, you’re all about being your buds’ shoulder to cry on. You’re one of the kindest signs on this chart, but when someone does you wrong, you won’t let them get away with it. That’s With Confidence’s “Voldemort” to a T!
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Pop-punk song: “Atlantic” by Grayscale
Personality traits: adaptable, versatile, communicative, witty, intellectual, eloquent, youthful, lively
Why it fits you: It would be far too simplistic to pair you with a song about understanding two-sides to a story, Gemini. We think you’re most like Grayscale’s “Atlantic,” a song about opening yourself up to new situations by being frank and smart about the situation—and knowing when it’s time to leave an environment that doesn’t work for you.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Pop-punk song: “Best Of Me” by the Starting Line
Personality traits: emotional, loving, intuitive, imaginative, shrewd, cautious, protective, sympathetic
Why it fits you: When it comes to romance, Cancer, no one loves like you. You go all in, and it makes for some incredible life experiences. Sometimes you run the risk of offering up too much up—perhaps all of you—to your love interest like the Starting Line, and while that’s great, they might take the best of you…
Leo (July 23 – August 21)
Pop-punk song: “In Bloom” by Neck Deep
Personality traits: generous, warmhearted, creative, enthusiastic, broad-minded, expansive, faithful, loving
Why it fits you: This one by Neck Deep is really honest and expressive—it touches on the kind of vulnerability that only a sincere and creative person like you, Leo, could think up. Be mindful of the people who put you down, but recognize your loved ones’ faults. That’s what “In Bloom” is all about, and you, too.
Virgo (August 22 – September 23)
Pop-punk song: “Check Yes Juliet” by We The Kings
Personality traits: modest, meticulous, reliable, practical, diligent, intelligent, analytical
Why it fits you: We could be oversimplifying here, Virgo, but something tells us you’re a fan of order. How easy would life be if love came with some kind of checklist, and your soulmate selected “yes”? Well, we can’t change the world for you, but we can provide you with a We The Kings song to make sense of it with—enjoy!
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Pop-punk song: “Dear Maria, Count Me In” by All Time Low
Personality traits: diplomatic, urbane, romantic, charming, easygoing, sociable, idealistic, peaceable
Why it fits you: All right, Libra, let’s get down to it—you’re super-friendly and often flirtatious, and people love your charm. Have you met my friends All Time Low? We’re sticking you with the big hit, but truth be told, you’re the living embodiment of their entire discography. Trust us.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Pop-punk song: “DVP” by PUP
Personality traits: determined, forceful, emotional, intuitive, powerful, exciting, magnetic
Why it fits you: Few of the tracks on this list command, nay, demand attention—they fail to exude the kind of life-of-the-party power you possess. That’s not the case for PUP’s high-energy single “DVP.” It requires all the focus in a room, as do you, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 22)
Pop-punk song: “The Anthem” by Good Charlotte
Personality traits: optimistic, freedom-loving, jovial, good-humored, honest, intellectual, philosophical
Why it fits you: You, Sagittarius, are known for being something of a leader (even if you’re the last one to believe it.) You’ve got a lot of ideas and people tend to listen when you speak—it’s about time you had your own anthem like Good Charlotte.
