How about incorporate breakdowns into power pop songs? This could be sweet. Instead of some sludgy guitar playing dirty riffs, the guy with a Rickenbacker would kinda play the same style of parts, but it'd sound more fun. And instead of some the hardcore dude's scowl, the power pop guy or girl would be smiling while playing the part. This could work. And, before the breakdown, maybe someone could blow a whistle, so just in case you didn't know the breakdown was coming, you'd be alerted.
