I'm sorry. I meant the second time around. Before them, yes there were the Ramones, but that was a while before, and up until Green Day came around, everyone in the mainstream had forgotten about punk/pop-punk. The current pop-punk bands aren't out there as direct result of the Ramones, but of Green Day. Oh yes, and of course if you think Green Day was better, it'd probably because the sound had had the time to develop. Green Day take a lot of influence from The Ramones. (As well as, as it has been said, the Who, the Kinks, the Clash, David Bowie, etc...)
