We posed the question. You made your opinion count.

Here we have it. The first part of our countdown towards the best 100 pop-punk albums. 

You voted, and these are the results. With over 26,000 votes over four days, a lot of you shared your opinion, and this is where we landed. Check out numbers 100-81 in the biggest pop-punk countdown ever.

Drumroll please...

100. MAJOR LEAGUE - 'HARD FEELINGS'


A band who should have been one of the genre's shining lights, Major League's under-appreciated debut is a gem that still hits like a ton of bricks. 
 

99. ME VS HERO - 'DAYS THAT SHAPE OUR LIVES'


Representing the UK in the easycore wars, Me Vs Hero's debut full length is some of the most fun you could have without taking your clothes off.

98. LIKE PACIFIC - 'IN SPITE OF ME'


One of the newest albums in the countdown but worthy of its position. Intelligent, honest and at times cripplingly relatable, Like Pacific's sophomore effort is a future classic you can indulge in right now. 

97. THE MOVIELIFE - 'FORTY HOUR TRAIN BACK TO PENN'


Probably the reason your favourite band exists. From 'Jamestown' to 'Jamaica Next', 'Face Or Kneecaps' to 'Ship To Shore', 'Forty Hour Train Back To Penn' is one of the most well worn blueprints the genre has at its disposal. 

96. MAN OVERBOARD - 'MAN OVERBOARD'


Taking the pop element of the genre and ramming it up to 11, Man Overboard's second record is the soundtrack to hating the ex you don't even have yet. 

95. HIT THE LIGHTS - 'THIS IS A STICK UP... DON'T MAKE IT A MURDER'


Sugary sweet and wonderfully brutal in equal measure, Hit The Lights' debut has it all. 

94. THE DANGEROUS SUMMER - 'REACH FOR THE SUN'


Ahead of its time in so many wonderful ways, The Dangerous Summer's second effort still has a firm place in many hearts today. 

93. PARAMORE - 'ALL WE KNOW IS FALLING'


Where it all started for one of the biggest bands in the world. Preppy and punchy in all the right places, big things were always destined to happen when you start like this. 

92. CRUCIAL DUDES - '61 PENN'


A blink and miss it effort that packs more punch than most bands manage in their whole career. 

91. LIKE PACIFIC - 'DISTANT LIKE YOU ASKED'


Are there any other debut albums from the last few years that define the new era of pop-punk so perfectly? No. No, there is not. 

90. MAN OVERBOARD - 'REAL TALK'


Where the self titled album summed up break-ups so well, Man Overboard's debut was what falling in love young felt like. 

89. FOUR YEAR STRONG - 'ENEMY OF THE WORLD'


Anthemic, gutteral and absolutely massive, this is Four Year Strong's most bonkers and brilliant effort to date. 

88. CARTEL - 'CHROMA'

Your favourite band's favourite band here with a debut that has influenced everybody who has followed it. 

87. FIREWORKS - 'GOSPEL'


Tender, loving and gloriously comforting, Fireworks were in a different league to everybody else on this beauty. 

86. JIMMY EAT WORLD - 'FUTURES'


Brooding, dark and undeniably sad, this was Jimmy stepping into new waters and coming out the other side clean and refreshed. 

85. TAKING BACK SUNDAY - 'LOUDER NOW'


The moment that Taking Back Sunday tranformed from boys into men. Timeless songwriting that still sounds just as huge 12 years on. 

84. ROAM - 'BACKBONE'


One of the UK's brightest sparks kicked things off with a bang on this colourful number. 

83. THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS - 'THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS'


A classic in every sense of the word, this is what the beginning of a phenomenon sounds like. 

82. HEY MONDAY - 'HOLD ON TIGHT'


10 years on and Hey Monday's debut is still as cute and cuddly as when it was first released. Just try to not belt 'How You Love Me Now', we dare you. 

81. THE ACADEMY IS... - 'FAST TIMES AT BARRINGTON HIGH'


What would end up being their last album before hiatus, William Beckett & Co went out with a sugar coated bang. 

Tune in tomorrow as we continue the countdown, from 80-61.
