Timeline of bands (copied from Grunge music[edit]

This is an exmpale. This was copied over from Grunge music. Plan to restructure it for "pop punk." In the meantime, just ignore it, or try to figure it out/work on it? Xsxex 20:48, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Note: Bands in green are defunct. Bands in orange are still active as of 2006 (with grey representing likely future continuation).
