    If you want to put exact numbers on it, here are some RIAA-based stats, from the bands' respective signature albums of the 90s:
    • Dookie (Green Day) - 10x Platinum
    • Smash (The Offspring) - 6x Platinum
    • …And Out Come the Wolves (Rancid) - Platinum
    • Stranger Than Fiction (Bad Religion) - Gold
    • Drunk in Public (NOFX) - Gold


    The person who made the list excluded NOFX because they "didn't have the same popularity" as the others. Though they're really not too far off from Bad Religion's Stranger Than Fiction in terms of record sales. But that's not the point; there's multiple variables that go into what makes a band truly memorable that can't possibly be assigned a number (i.e. influence, cult following, audience, etc.). Then again, the true meaning of the list is to appeal to the mainstream, and deliver a lineup of bands that would be most recognizable to the public, not necessarily punk enthusiasts.

    The creator of this Big 4 obviously doesn't know exactly who was popular or not. NOFX have been popular for a long time and got the recognition The Offspring, Green Day, Rancid and Bad Religion deserved during the 90's. If I created my own Big 4, I would include NOFX instead of Bad Religion, who I think should actually be in the Big 4 of 80's Punk Rock instead.
