Ahhh, pop punk, the genre gift that keeps on giving. It’s so much more than palm-muted power chords, the desire to eat pizza and going to Warped Tour every year. 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.
Pop-punk song: “Stupid For You” by Waterparks
December 23 – January 20
Personality traits: practical, prudent, ambitious, disciplined, patient, careful, humorous, reserved
Why it fits you: Like pop-punk’s favorite newcomers 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!
Pop-punk song: “American Idiot” by Green Day
January 21 – February 19
Personality traits: friendly, humanitarian, honest, loyal, original, inventive, independent, intellectual
Why it fits you: Most people would be surprised by this pairing, 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.
Pop-punk song: “I Miss You” by Blink-182
February 20 – March 20
Personality traits: imaginative, sensitive, compassionate, kind, selfless, intuitive, sympathetic
Why it fits you: This somber Blink 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 just last year. This is totally you, Pisces, because it’s super-emotional and different—combining your softness with your artistic soul.
Pop-punk song: “Fat Lip” by Sum 41
March 21 – April 20
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 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.
Pop-punk song: “Voldemort” by With Confidence
April 21 – May 21
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 “Voldemort” to a T!
Pop-punk song: “Atlantic” by Grayscale
May 22 – June 21
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.
